    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Columbus, OH) in July 2015.

    Interview

    This was not a typical interview. The postmaster did not ask me very many questions, instead chose to tell me about the job, and supposedly about the "bad parts" so I could decide if I was still interested. When I left I got the impression that she would recommend me for the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Summerfield, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Non interview. We sat as a group. Took 30 minutes. He read to us. asked if we had any questions. I was the only one that took notes. He explained last RCA quit because she could not handle the stress. The agency is NOW going to time your route continuously. Said it was OK if you wanted you could come in one hour early on your own time to get prepped (start sorting) to lessen stress. This MANAGER said I was TOO far away....I live 8 miles and under 14 minutes. He said he KNEW where I lived. He wants to call you and have you in there within 15 minutes. I could do that. I have a PERFECT attendance record and worked in the community. He explained half routes have LLV and half not but agency is getting new vehicles and then the old crappy llvs will tricked down to RCAs, He had the ability to hire all five of us, half will fail anyway, and TOLD us..he does not have to follow then list. only for veterans. He can skip folks (with higher scores) if he wants. The position is OPEN again. Guess he did not like us. He told me to apply somewhere else. I reapplied at Summerfield anyway.

    Interview

    very easy process, just like any other interview. Starts off as a group telling you about the job. then they take you back for a one on one interview. after you are done they will tell you if they selected you to go further with the hiring process. but it takes a couple of days for them to up date the status on line for your drug test had my interview may 14, may 26 got my email for drug test and offer letter for job, go to processing June 2

    Interview

    Applied online and took a personality test. After that I took the 473. Passed with a score of 86. Interviewed a couple weeks later. There was about 40 people getting interviewed. Seems like they interview those with higher scores first. I didnt feel like it was much of a interview. It was more of them describing the job and seeing if I was still interested

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Knoxville, TN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and within a week I was emailed a notification to submit info for background check and drug screen. I was then notified by the postmaster to set up an interview, It was very casual and comfortable. I was hired within a a week. The hardest part was weeding through all the scams that came by email.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed 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....
