Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at US Postal Service.

Interview Details

If you actually receive a call back for an interview you have the job pending you pass a drug test. It was a long process and very drawn out. A lot of uncertainty when training will begin or when I would start.

    PSE Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Forest Park, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Forest Park, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at US Postal Service in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    First of all, the position was a seasonal one (*they didn't specify that it was during the application process). Also, it took quite some time to actually get interviewed. First, the company schedules you to take a skills test upon basic things (spelling, the address codes, memorizing the address locations, etc.). On the test, you must score at least at 70% or higher. After you receive your results, the company sends an e-mail to you indicating which facility to report to for a group interview. A few weeks later, they will tell you to report to another facility for orientation (ours was in Carol Stream, IL). If you don't make it there for the 2-day orientation, you will automatically become disqualified for employment. After attending both days f the orientations, the company will tell you that you will start within a few days afterwards depending upon the shift that you had previously selected.

    Interview Details

    There was no real interview. We were told to come in for an "interview" and it was just a basic overview of the position. They then went down the list by who had the highest scores on the placement test. You gave them all your info and went to another room to get documentation to take a drug test. If you passed the drug test you are called back to get your fingeprints done and get your orientation information.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at US Postal Service in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    First I applied on their website and was asked to take an online assessment. After I passed that I was asked to come into a local technical college and take the postal exam. About two weeks later I received an email to come into the main post office in my city for an interview. The interview process consisted of a few questions and I was asked which positions I preferred and was told I would receive an email if I was offered the job. A few weeks later I received an email with a job offer. Finally I did my background check and drug test and came in for orientation.
