    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at US Postal Service.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • 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
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation phase, everyone is hired at the same level of pay which is consistent with the position hired for.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at US Postal Service in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very simplistic for my position only because it is a very demanding, dangerous, life changing experience with no benefits. The system is built on carriers and the management treats you less than a person.

    Interview Details

    I scored 100% on the entrance exam so I was offered a position immediately after I passed the physical examination and drug screening. Many veterans passed the exam with their additional bonus points. I suggest to buy study materials or practice exams or you will not pass the exam.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at US Postal Service in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was emailed for an interview three days in advance. I showed up on the day of the interview, five minutes before the interview was scheduled to start. I waited for about 30 minutes. I finally got called in, we talked for about 10-15 minutes, and that was that. It was an easy interview. Basically just questions of morals, things of that nature. He told me I would get a call within a week once my drug test came back. I waited a week. Two weeks. Finally called, no response. No response. I finally gave up, and two and a half months after the initial interview, I was called to come start orientation in two weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • Would you be willing to drop everything and come to work if you were called in on your day off, even if you were in the middle of something?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. It was, "Here is the salary." I mentioned that it was less than what was posted on the website when I applied. He disregarded that, restated my starting salary. That was it. I accepted.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at US Postal Service in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Basic interview. No trick questions. They mostly want to know how you take orders, work independently, and can deal with the elements. You must pass a drug screen, have a clean driving record and pass a driving test on the LLV. The whole process can take months. Nothing moves too fast in the USPS. Don't get discouraged if you don't hear back from them in a timely manner.
