I know it is still summer and you may be upset that I am mentioning the holidays, but it is for a very good reason. There is an open house for holiday jobs coming up that offer $17 an hour to start. The holidays are quickly approaching and one employer wants to start the hiring process soon. The U.S. Postal Service at its Albany Processing and Distribution Center in Colonie is holding an open house on Thursday September 14th. They are looking to fill positions for the holiday shipping season. The jobs are part time and for indoor work at the facility earning $17 per hour with no benefits offered.

Potential employees must be 18 and U.S. citizens. There will be a criminal background check and drug and medical tests. The dates of the positions they are hoping to fill are November 11th through January 5th.

If you are interested you are asked to call ahead. 518-452-2408. If you are unable to attend the open house on September 14th, you can go to the U.S. Postal Service website and apply online.
