    City Carrier Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at US Postal Service.

    Interview Details

    First you apply online, then you wait for unspecified amount of time until you get an email. Most of communications is done via Email for the job, so make sure you check it often. The following email can come at anytime, mine took a few weeks, depending on if they need people at the time. Currently they are hiring. Once you get a confirmation email, it entails you to take an assessment test for the position, its very easy. It requires you to see if your able to read addresses on mail properly and if your able to see and memorize mistakes. Again, easy. You get your results back after a week or so, if your in a certain high percentile, you'll get a call first than ones who score less. You schedule an interview and go from there.

    Interview: Basic interview scenarios, I have been to a few interviews, they either played out like I was question thoroughly, or they asked but they were constantly writing, meaning pretty much that they're already giving you the job but need to ask as a formality.

    CCA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at US Postal Service in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the 473 Exam about a month ago and passed, I believe passing is a score of 70. Anyhow, I received an email from USPS 3 weeks later stating they would like to interview me for possible employment as a CCA; a position I applied for earlier! Prior to interview, they also sent me for urine test and had a background check performed. The interview was performed a few days later. Me and and about 29 other candidates showed up in a classroom like setting. The instructors stated the duties and wages of CCA, and what is expected from us. After giving out each of our pre filled applications the interviews began. Interviews are pretty simple, and have standard questions with some USPS situations. Interviewer was helpful, and beforehand told me this is easy and not to be nervous! After interview was over, followed up with head instuctor to see if all paperwork is in order while asking why should I be hired? After answering, instructor informed me to check email and spam for their answer. Also said might take few weeks, due to enourmous volume of applicants!
