The United States Postal Service is planning on hiring hundreds of Californians over the next several weeks as the holiday season kicks into full gear.

At least 500 postal workers are needed in Los Angeles alone, USPS officials said.

The Postal Service will be holding multiple “mega hiring” events across L.A. County in an effort to fill hundreds of positions in part-time, full-time and seasonal capacities.

The hiring efforts are part of the Postal Service’s 10-year “Deliver for America” plan, which aims to revamp and modernize the way the service operates in an effort to improve the agency’s overall financial sustainability.

More than 28,000 employees are expected to be hired throughout the country as part of the years long plan.

Locally, the USPS is hoping to hire city carriers, tractor trailer operators and mail processing personnel for the busy holiday season.
