How to Bid on Routes/Assignments on LiteBlue USPS.
If you are an existing USPS employee, you can bid on routes or assignments through the LiteBlue online employee portal.
To do this, you will need to go to: http://www.liteblue.usps.gov and sign in using your Employee ID and your USPS password. These are the same login credentials used for services like PostalEASE. Your Employee ID is an eight digit number and can be found near the top of your pay slip.
Once you have successfully signed in, click on ‘My HR’ and then go to the section labelled ‘I Am…’ and click ‘Access eJob Bidding’. Using the navigation links down the left-hand side of the page, select ‘Enter Job Bids’ and click on the job posting number for the relevant route or assignment.
If you are applying for more than one route or assignment, you can indicate your order of preference using the ‘Choice’ column, where you can choose your first choice, second choice, third choice, and so on. From there, all you need to do to complete the bidding process is click on the button labelled ‘Submit Job Bids’.
