Highest Paid US Postal Service Employees

By on February 24, 2012 in Current Events, Human Resources with 189 Comments

Probably the question that is asked most frequently by readers with regard to federal salaries is, “Who makes the highest salaries?”

As we have just posted the latest Postal Service salary data, we did a search in the new database to answer the question: “Who are the 30 highest paid Postal Service executives and how much do they make?”

Keep in mind that even though the Postal Service is going broke, it still sells a lot of stamps and hires a lot of people. The agency currently employs about 574,000 people and 2010 sales for the agency were $67 billion. The total paid in salaries for these 30 executives is $6,115,840 for an average salary of $203,861. Paying the salaries for these top 30 individuals requires selling 13,590,756 first class stamps at the current price of 45 cents for mailing a first class letter.

Here are the names, positions, salaries and geographic location of the highest paid Postal Service folks. Most, but not all, are in the Washington, DC area. As one might expect, those that are highest on the organization chart often have the highest salaries. 

No doubt, many Members of Congress will be envious of the higher salaries but, presumably, it is harder to hire Postal Service executives capable of doing a good job than it is to attract people to run for Congress.
