    All job promotions into management are unfortunately at this time for internal applicants only. The Postal Service promotes from within. You have to first get hired on as a craft employee, either carrier or clerk,, then from there you can apply for vacancies.

    • During one interview I was asked who the Postmaster General was and I did not know the answer. It pays to do a little homework prior to going in for an interview!   1 Answer
