    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at US Postal Service in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The whole process from applying online to getting a job offer took 7 weeks. Sucks I'm only on for the Holidays but if evaluations are great we have the possibility of being extended longer for the position. During the mass interview paperwork are filled and someone from HR calls you over to make sure everything is done correctly from your online application, then you are called by a manager I believe or supervisor to do a one on one interview. General questions are ask not hard. I was able to make my interviewer laugh which was a good thing I think... as she just got off a graveyard shift.

    -9/6/14 Scheduled to take the assessment at a test center location the same day I applied
    - 9/9/14 Took Assessment at a test Center

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at US Postal Service in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The entire process took a month. I applied on 9/30 and I'm scheduled for orientation on 11/15. First I had to take an onsite exam...scored a 83.5, then I had to attend a group meeting (interview) there were about 35 people in the meeting. We just went over the job description and filled out paperwork. Later on that day I received an email to go take a drug test and I had to fax a form for a background check. This position is only seasonal...they did state that out of the 80 people they hire, 10 will receive a more permanent position. It will all be based on your exam score....exam score = seniority(the higher you score, the more seniority you have)...Pay is 15.26/hourly (in my state)

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    You have to follow a bunch of steps like faxing a form, urine test, computer exam, background check, fingerprint card. The actual interview was like a cattle call, very quick and basic questions like why do you want the job, nothing hard. They seem to want to hire as many ppl as possible because like 80% quit or get fired on the job.

    Interview Questions
    • nothing other than keeping track of all the steps you have to complete to progress to hiring. I think those steps are meant to measure your ability to follow directions and not question authority. Also the computer exam facility was extremely hard to find. Probably to measure your tenacity!   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    no negotiation, the wage and schedule is set by them. In fact if you try to negotiate a schedule they will probably pass on you. They hold the cards in the deal, and you better be willing to accommodate them or you're out.
