Press release from the United States Postal Service:
What’s 800 miles long, blue and has 4,800 legs? It’s the U.S. Postal Service’s first-ever California, statewide job fair blitz! #USPSCoast2Careers
The USPS is looking to hire 2,400 new employees at simultaneous job fairs from 10AM to 1PM on Thursday, January 26th. Participating offices stretch the entire length of the California coast from San Diego all the way up to the Redwoods of Arcata.
“There is just so much opportunity to expand and grow with the Post Office,” says Pacifica mail carrier Reggie Torres. As a 27-year veteran of the Postal Service, he knows the benefits of working in a coastal town more than most. “When the sun is setting over the water, it doesn’t matter where you are in the city, you can’t help but stop for a couple of minutes and enjoy its beauty.”
The Pacifica Post Office is just one of the 15 locations along the Northern California coast hosting job fairs on Jan. 26th. From the South Bay to the Northern redwoods and everywhere in between, these 15 locations are hoping to hire over 900 new Mail Carriers, Clerks, and Tractor-Trailer drivers.

“I talk to every new carrier I train about the opportunities available to them,” says Torres who has been training the next generation of carriers for more than a decade as an on-the-job instructor. He takes pride in teaching them more than just how to put letters in a box. “I’ve been a supervisor and a leader in my office, but most of all I love the people on my route. I’ve seen kids grow up and have kids of their own. I wouldn’t want work anywhere else.”
“This is a career with all the benefits, not just a job you do until something better comes along,” Torres continues. “If you want to do something fulfilling, this is where you start.”
Many of these job offerings at these locations career positions that come with full, federal benefits and plenty of room for growth.
