Sounds like a pretty nice area to work in. Are you looking for someone who knows the US Postal Requirements as well?
Thank you for the comment and question. Growth in the Tri-Cities area (Kennewick, Richland & Pasco) is leading the state of Washington and much of the nation.

To answer your questions, knowledge of USPS regulations is highly desirable. For mail processing we run an application called Postalsoft Desktop Mailer Business Mail Edition.

Our main interest is finding a quality oriented operator who is proficient in running saddle stitchers (Muller Martini experience a plus), folders and cutters. That said, we are willing to train an qualified candidate on the mailing software, hardware and postal regulations.
