    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at US Postal Service (Severna Park, MD) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, then was taken to a screen to schedule for the test, took test got my score almost as soon as I was done. Then I was a little over a month before I received a call for an interview, which was plessant, she told me i was the only one who showed, so it wssnt a group interview, it was myself and two postmasters. All the questions they asked were pre written and they wrote my responses down next to the questions. At the end I was told to watch out for emails regarding background and drug testing...which is where I'm at now about 5 days later I received an email to do a background which was completed online, but no email for a drug screen, so I'm guessing that email will follow? My status online went from In Process, Hiring List to now Pre Screening.....its a long waiting game....

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at US Postal Service.

    Interview

    Take the test and pass with highest score possible. Interview was slightly generic. Hiring seemed solely based on test score. They want to make sure you have the ability to work quickly and accurately.

    Negotiation

    None

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at US Postal Service (Monroeville, OH) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had applied online mid December, took the assessment and scored high enough to be considered for the job. I received an email inviting me to an interview and a day after I got that email I got two more to schedule a drug test and get a background check done, I did both right away so they would be on file for when I had my interview. Went to the interview, I feel like it went great. the interviewer said all my paperwork looked good and to keep an eye out for an email. It has been a week since my interview. I keep checking the status of my application online, it still says hiring list and I have yet to receive an email. I am kind of nervous, I know that an RCA position is just picking up when a regular needs a day off or has a scheduled day off but its a foot in the door and that's all I need!

    Interview

    Good interview .a very personable time with the Manager. Great person to talk to.Interview probably lasted 1 hour. It felt like an conversation with a friend. I wish the Government would treat employees with respect and provide health care, but they are worse than any private industry I have ever seen.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at US Postal Service (Portland, OR) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I put an application in online with several post offices for the same position. After about two months, I got a phone call from a postmaster saying he wanted to interview. I went in to the interview that had a couple other applicants there. The postmaster didn't say a whole lot; just that there isn't any guarantee of hours. he walked us around the post office and showed us the vehicles. Finally after the tour, one person decided she didn't want to continue. I went into his office, answered his questions, and he said he'd pass my name onto upper management, who would then run my background check and decide if the should hire me. About a month later, I got another call from the post office asking me to come in that day to sign some paperwork. A couple of days later, I had to go in again THAT DAY to sign some more paperwork.
