    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at US Postal Service in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went to the USPS website and took the first test. Right after I was sent to take the 473 exam. A few weeks later I got an email for a interview. The interview consisted of filling out paperwork and staff explaining to us what the job was about. A few days later I was sent an email for a drug screening and a form to fax for my background check. A few weeks later I received an email for medical screening, which consisted of filling out a questioner of all my medical history. A couple more weeks later I received an email to report to orientation. Orientation or (ONE) took 2 days and was your basic orientation going over pay, what your job consist of, and the operation of the Post Office. The 3rd day was Defensive driving, which was basically drivers training again. The next 2 days were Carrier Academy, which consisted of learning how delivery the mail, case the mail, and etc. The last day of training was Drivers Training, which was learning how to drive the LLV and for my station the FFV.

    All this training was done in one week Mon-Fri, except for Drivers Training which was on the next Monday.

    Training was not hard, its just a lot of information in a short amount of time.

    A few days after training I was working a route with my OJI "On the Job Instructor"

    Rural Carrier Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at US Postal Service in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Basic interview. How would you solve problems outside your expertise? How do you solve problems. What are your expectations. Nothing fancy. Be interested. Ask about the job. Show some knowledge of your employer. Lots of info online.

    You hear the phrase "going postal" now and then. You know what it means. I'll tell you right now, postal workers are some of the friendliest, most helpful I've ever known. They know you're not taking their job. I have never had a person not give me good advice - solicited or not - when I needed it.

    Now this is a union environment. These people know the rules, and if so much as a hangnail is out of place or someone of lesser seniority gets OT, you'll know it, and hear about it. Often. Not a deal killer. Good to know the rules. They protect the USPS and the employees.
