Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at US Postal Service (Willoughby Hills, OH) in May 2015.

Interview

When I arrived the only thing I didn't like was that I had to stand in line to notify someone I was there . Thank god I came early. The line was to the door, and people were actually leaving. The only thing that was going through my mind was, I can't wait to start because these people really need some help.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at US Postal Service.

    Interview

    I waited outside in the lobby and called my hiring contact to walk me through the secured building. There were three of us waiting. We were given a brief tour of the facility. We were led into a conference room where we filled out paperwork documenting the last five years of our residency. I waited in the conference room until I was called up for my interview. They walked me into another room for my one on one interview. It was a very easy going process. They verified my background, asked a few generic interview questions, and asked my shift preference. Then I was sent to another room where I got fingerprinted and then another room where I got my photo taken for an ID card. I was a bit confused on whether or not I had gotten the job because they did not directly say it, but after they asked me which day I was available for orientation, I knew I had gotten the job.

    I applied online – interviewed at US Postal Service.

    Interview

    The interview process was straight to the point, depending on the interviewer. The interviewer asked simple questions, nothing to hard to answer. However, the interview is in a group setting, so be prepared and stand out. Also, the interview process can take up to 5 hours so make sure to eat something before you go.

    Interview

    First you apply on-line. Than they will send you an invite to the exam. The exam is straight forward computer based. If you score decent 75 or better they will call you for an interview. The interview is a few questions. The ones I was asked is Why do you want to work here. How long have you been considering a job at the Post Office. Do early morning hours bother you.

    Negotiation

    None 15.63 an hour no benefits.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at US Postal Service in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was 1:1, very informative and to the point. Questions asked were: if I was self-driven, if I worked well with others, if I could handle tasks on my own, if I could work in an office without any other coworkers. They asked about my leadership and if I would do well being a leader. They asked about work history. They really like committed employees! So have a VERY stable, solid (no job-hopping!) resume!! They asked how I would handle a situation where I was faced with a disgruntled customer. They told me my duties and asked if I would be able to fulfill those duties with minimal, if any, problems. They asked what my goals are; whether I planned to just be comfortable on the bottom of the totem pole or be eager to advance my career.
