Use in coaching

In the days of horse-drawn carriages, a postmaster was an individual from whom horses and/or riders (known as postilions or "post-boys") could be hired. The postmaster would reside in a "post house".[1]

Earnings in the US

In the United States, many Postmasters are members of a management organization which consults with the National Association of Postmasters of the United States (NAPUS) which has approximately 80% of Postmasters as members and the National League of Postmasters, which is a smaller group. Some Postmasters are members of both organizations.

USPS Postmaster annual salaries average around $60,000,[2] with the upper limit being approximately $110,000 and an entry level salary of $55,000.

The level of pay is based on deliveries and revenue of the post office. Levels are from EAS (Executive and Administrative Service) 11 through 26. Smaller part-time post offices are EP levels 51-55. Larger metropolitan post offices are PCES (Postal Career Executive Service).
