Cost-Cutting Initiatives in the US Postal Service

The United States Postal Service is an independent Federal agency that delivers mail to every address in the nation. To fund its operations, it relies solely on the sale of its products and services, receiving no tax dollars for its expenses. Postal workers deliver mail and parcels come rain or shine, connecting not only individuals but homes and businesses as well.

But the financial strain that the USPS is facing now is a matter of public knowledge. With the inability of Congress to pass legislation that will put the Postal Service on a financially stable footing, the agency has taken steps to cut costs themselves. Striving not to affect the delivery of their services, the USPS has implemented some of these measures since 2006 and continues to look for ways to keep itself as an agency afloat while it waits for postal reform legislation.

For starters, the Postal Service has already decreased its annual cost base by about $15 billion. It has closed or consolidated some post offices, for starters. It has also cut down 24 percent of its career postal employees which translates to 168,000 workers. But these were not enough, unfortunately. It has defaulted on its $11.1 billion mandated payments to the U.S. Treasury which further contributed to a loss totaling $15.9 billion.

Despite these losses and cost reductions, the USPS continues to do their work successfully. Mail continues to get delivered unhampered. Postal workers still do their best to get your letters and parcels get to where they need to be. During Christmas and peak seasons, the US Postal Service hires additional staff for seasonal postal jobs to help regular workers accomplish their voluminous tasks.

Mail still remains big business and the Postal Service is still an integral part of the American way of life. If you like to become a mail handler, mail carrier, postal clerk, sales associate, distribution associate, service associate, technical maintenance staff, or vehicle operator, among others, for the U.S. Mail you can start by learning all you need to know about the organization and the job descriptions in their website (www.usps.com).

You can try to get an idea of the kinds of positions that are available by doing a search for their available openings. However, if you find a particular position that you would like to apply for, you will need to create a Candidate Profile in the system. Most Postal Service employment opportunities require applicants to take a postal battery test. The most common postal exam is the 473-e which is an aptitude test that determines if you have the skills needed to do the work of a postal worker successfully.
