USPS Jobs in kansas

The U.S. Postal Service pays app $500 million a year in salaries and benefits to more than 6,500 employees who work at 592 Post Offices in Kansas.

Nationally, the Postal Service pays out almost $47 billion a year in salaries and benefits to more than 625,000 employees who work at 31,600 facilities across the country.

Ever expanding delivery routes and natural employee turnover demand constant hiring and create an incredible number of job opportunities. Between 1,000 and 2,000 open jobs are posted on the USPS website every day of the year.

So, where are these jobs in Kansas? Most of the jobs listed at the bottom of this page are available at larger Post Offices in Wichita, Overland Park, Kansas City, Topeka, Olathe, Lawrence, Shawnee, Manhattan, Lenexa, Salina, Hutchinson, Leavenworth, Leawood, Dodge City, Garden City, Emporia, and more.

But there are also many jobs available at Post Offices in smaller communities throughout Kansas. Getting a job at a one of these locations may be easier because there is not as much competition in areas with less population. Rural Carrier positions are particularly popular jobs. See our Rural Carrier Associate page for details on this job and why it is so popular. Most of the customer service, delivery, and mail processing jobs listed at the bottom of this page are available at smaller Post Offices as well.

The Postal Service recently revised everything about getting a Post Office job: the application process, the exams, everything. Nothing is the same. There’s no such thing as test dates anymore. You can apply for Post Office jobs and take exams anytime you want. And everything - the job search, the application, and even the exams - is now done online.

See our book, How to Really Get Postal Jobs, for critically needed guidance as you attempt to navigate the glitch-ridden and challenging new online job search and application process. See our How to Apply page for details on the new hiring and testing process.

New Exam 473E is now used to fill over 90% of all jobs, but the bad news is that it carries an 80-90% failure rate. And you have no chance at all if you don’t have one of the top three scores. Only the top three applicants are invited for an interview. See our Complete Postal Exam 473E Interactive eGuide for effective and proven successful test preparation.
