Demand for Mail Superintendents

The job of mail superintendent is among the twenty fastest declining occupations in the United States. Competition from electronic messaging platforms and private mail and parcel delivery companies is having a significant negative impact on traditional postal services worldwide. In many countries, including the U.S., reduced funding from the national government has led to downsizing of operations. Cutbacks include the closure of several post offices and discontinuation of some services, such as Saturday delivery.

Relatively high pay rates and a progressively smaller number of jobs in the field mean very strong competition for available positions.

Supply of Mail Superintendents

The Mail Superintendent industry is concentrated in New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
