CITY LETTER CARRIER Interview

Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO

Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Saint Louis, MO).

Interview

I had to show up three times. Waiting on letters for contacts and times. People showed up filthy and got the job. While i was in business attire and made fun of, i should have run for the border then. On my last interview a woman who has since passed told me you have to have a tough skin to work here because people will talk to you crazy...... I had no idea how bad it could be.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Englewood, CO).

    Interview

    To be honest it's been like 15-16 years since my interview so I really can't remember what was said. I know there were questions about if I had any problems with walking because we have walking routes in our office. The postmaster was very nice and professional. He also asked about if I had s fear of dogs, just because we can come across many dogs when delivering mail.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Postal Service.

    Interview

    The postal service has no interview processes. The way a person is hired is through a series of tests. The original tests were conducted in person with about 500 other people and would that take about 5 hours to compete. Now the testing is conducted online. The tests and application are accessible online throughout the postal service website www.usps.com. There are now interviews included in the hiring process, which are conducted by the HR department.

    Interview Questions

    • I am not sure what questions are associated with testing process, but if it is remotely close to to the written test it will ask things associated with numbers, and comparing house numbers and addresses.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation phase, everyone is hired at the same level of pay which is consistent with the position hired for.

    Interview

    Very short, straightforward, easy and stress-free. The man that interviewed me was acting postmaster and even though he had never carried a piece of mail in his life, he was still able to give me a good idea of what to expect with the job.(hours, expectations, physical needs, etc.)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a year or more. I interviewed at US Postal Service.

    Interview

    It may be different now but when I signed up I had to sign up to take a test that gave you a score and the interviews and hiring was determined somewhat based on the score of the test, whole process took over a year between first applying for the test and actually getting an interview. The hiring took over a month after the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The toughest part about getting hired would probably be keeping a clean driving record. I have one, and if you don't it might keep you from getting hired because driving is a large part of what a carrier does.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Nothing is negotiable, everything is based on set pay, unchangeable work hours (pretty much everything is at the management's discretion regarding work schedule) and if you're unable to work any day of the week that isn't sunday, you will pretty much exclude yourself from the hiring pool.
