Job Finder: USPS has 500 jobs available in the LA area

Los Angeles is home to the largest USPS facility in the country. Given the demand for delivery during the pandemic, they're hiring!

Senior Plant Manager Daniel Hirai says, "Right now we're looking for mail processing clerks, mail handlers, and mail carriers."

For the month of April, the postal service processed 14 million packages, which is a reflection of the stay-at-home order. Now more than ever, people are relying on their services. In an effort to keep up with the demand, they're hiring 500 people here in the Los Angeles area.
