Duties and Pay


Postal Service Mail Carriers deliver mail to homes and businesses in cities, towns, and rural areas. Most travel established routes, delivering and collecting mail. Mail carriers cover their routes on foot, by vehicle, or by a combination of both. Some mail carriers collect money for postage due and COD (cash-on-delivery). Others, particularly in rural areas, sell postal products such as stamps and money orders. All carriers, however, must be able to answer customers’ questions about postal regulations and services and, upon request, provide change-of-address cards and other postal forms.

How to Get a Post Office Job


Although there is no specific postsecondary education requirement to get an entry-level post office job, all applicants must create an online eCareer profile (in the Careers section of the USPS website), meet the employment requirements and take the Postal Battery Exam (473/473-E).


The Postal Battery Exam (473/473-E) is an electronic exam that measures speed and accuracy at checking names and numbers and the ability to memorize mail distribution procedures.

A passing score on the exam is 70, but, you NEED to score higher if you want to get hired.
