$23.74/hour wage: Milwaukee Post Office looking to hire tractor trailer drivers

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Post Office is looking to hire tractor trailer drivers for the processing and distribution center located at 345 W. St. Paul Avenue. 

"We’re looking for motivated applicants,” said Acting Milwaukee Postmaster Kellie Amundson. “These positions are career positions for people who are dedicated.”

According to a news release, you can earn $23.74 and hour with benefits. 

USPS offers competitive pay, a diverse workplace, a sense of service to the community and additional opportunities.

Newly hired employees are covered by the Federal Employees Retirement System, can contribute to the Thrift Savings Plan and can enroll in the Federal Employees Health Benefits program.

CDL REQUIRED: Applicants must have a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL) from the state in which they live. If applicants have an interstate CDL, they must self-certify to their state that they operate or expect to operate in excepted interstate commerce, as required by 49 CFR part 383.71(b)(1)(ii). Each state has its own procedure for completing the self-certification process, so applicants should seek assistance from their Department of Motor Vehicles or their state’s equivalent, if they are unaware of how to do so.

Applicants must have a safe driving record, and at least two years of unsupervised experience driving passenger cars or larger vehicles and one year of full-time unsupervised experience (or equivalent) driving a 7-ton or larger truck, tractor trailer or a 16-passenger or larger bus.
