I applied online – interviewed at US Postal Service.
The postal service has no interview processes. The way a person is hired is through a series of tests. The original tests were conducted in person with about 500 other people and would that take about 5 hours to compete. Now the testing is conducted online. The tests and application are accessible online throughout the postal service website www.usps.com. There are now interviews included in the hiring process, which are conducted by the HR department.
- I am not sure what questions are associated with testing process, but if it is remotely close to to the written test it will ask things associated with numbers, and comparing house numbers and addresses. Answer Question
There is no negotiation phase, everyone is hired at the same level of pay which is consistent with the position hired for.

I applied online. The process took a year or more – interviewed at US Postal Service.
It may be different now but when I signed up I had to sign up to take a test that gave you a score and the interviews and hiring was determined somewhat based on the score of the test, whole process took over a year between first applying for the test and actually getting an interview. The hiring took over a month after the interview.
- The toughest part about getting hired would probably be keeping a clean driving record. I have one, and if you don't it might keep you from getting hired because driving is a large part of what a carrier does. Answer Question
Nothing is negotiable, everything is based on set pay, unchangeable work hours (pretty much everything is at the management's discretion regarding work schedule) and if you're unable to work any day of the week that isn't sunday, you will pretty much exclude yourself from the hiring pool.

to begin with this is done by computer. You must answer emails as they come in or you will be taken off the list. Interviews are pretty laid back. Hiring process can take some time depending on how quick the need and if they (USPS) decides to freeze hiring like they have done from time to time.
- Make sure you understand the physical demands of the job. Safety is utmost a concern. Answer Question
Pay is on a pay scale unless you are requesting a "contract" position and then low-bid always wins.

It took a while between the time that I took the test to the time that I was interviewed. It was about a year and four months. The higher you score on the test the quicker you would get called in for an interview.

I applied in-person – interviewed at US Postal Service.
you need to take the civil service exam. even if you not currently looking for employment it never hurts to take the test and have scores on file. It take a while for you to ever be called but if you have scores on file then when an interview is given then you may have a chance, not test taken your name will not be called.
- questions are not difficult or unexpected, very basic questions and answers Answer Question
there is not negotaition
