TE Letter Carrier Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Accepted Offer

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at US Postal Service.

Interview

Fill out application online. Depending on the position you may or may not have to schedule a civil service test. Lots of paperwork and background checks. Keep an eye on your email as they often send important communication that way (ironic isn't it).
The interviews themselves are actually fairly pleasant in my experience and I enjoyed speaking with the local postmaster.

Interview Questions

  • Nothing comes to mind, you actually get to be interviewed by a "real" person rather than an HR department which is a huge plus.   Answer Question

Negotiation

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at US Postal Service (Tacoma, WA) in August 2008.

    Interview

    The interview really just asks your physical capabilities and where you worked before. Must pass a physical and drug screen. Then you must be finger printed and sworn in. take about 3 weeks. You also must have a clean drivers license. I had to wait a month, which they were nice enough to hold my job because I had 2 speeding tickets and I needed one to fall off my driving record before being officially hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at US Postal Service (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    I had worked in the main P&DC on Lundy for over a year, many of my supervisors suggested I apply to switch from inside to outside work as the pay was almost double. I liked working inside with the machines & the people, but outside is fine too. There are only a few weeks that the weather is very hot or very cold & wet that are almost unbearable... but we get through them.

    Interview Questions

    • I loved my job, and would still be there if I could be, and when there was a package that was missed I offered to deliver it on my way home, after clocking out.   1 Answer
