Newest OIG Report On Hiring Practices

A bit of history… When a potential employee applies for a position in USPS, they should read the job description. But for the longest time, USPS should perform job interviews by the hiring office or facility. In either case, NONE OF THIS TAKES PLACE.


Originally written by our Director of Associate Offices, Mike Wright.
Attached is the latest report from the OIG regarding the hiring practices by the Postal Service and how they could improve retention of new hires. Some of the highlights of the report are:

  • Additionally, management interviewed at 20 of 21 (95 percent) facilities stated they would like to be able to include specific position requirements in the job postings.
  • During FY 2021 through FY 2023, overall employee turnover increased from 56 percent to 57 percent, respectively
  • 18 percent of new hires did not show up for orientation or report for their first day of work
  • …three of five (60 percent) districts conducted informal meet and-greet discussions with the applicant as a good practice once he or she accepted the position. Facility management stated this helped employees become more aware of the reality of the job and workroom floor and gives them a final opportunity to accept or decline the job.
