    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at US Postal Service.

    Interview Details

    The first round is a phone interview that lasts around 20-30 minutes. They asked all situation based questions. This is an entry level position and being a recent graduate a lot of the questions I had to answer based on college classes. After maybe the 5th question the asked me just to talk about a specific project.

    Industrial Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at US Postal Service in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    It had two sections of interview. First one was a panel interview for 30 minutes or more. Then I received a second interview in the location I may get hire with my future supervisor and 2 persons. I got an offer about two weeks after the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • I was giving out the information for the previous work experience. The interviewer also asked for the detail number as the saving amount or what strategy I was applied to conduct the task. Sometime the information in my mind was not clear but I have to give a reasonable explanation instantly. Honest and assume the possible questions and answers will be good practice to prepare oral interview.   View Answer
