    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Portland, OR) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I scored 100% on the entrance exam so I was offered a position immediately after I passed the physical examination and drug screening. Many veterans passed the exam with their additional bonus points. I suggest to buy study materials or practice exams or you will not pass the exam.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Birmingham, AL) in February 2009.

    Interview

    I was emailed for an interview three days in advance. I showed up on the day of the interview, five minutes before the interview was scheduled to start. I waited for about 30 minutes. I finally got called in, we talked for about 10-15 minutes, and that was that. It was an easy interview. Basically just questions of morals, things of that nature. He told me I would get a call within a week once my drug test came back. I waited a week. Two weeks. Finally called, no response. No response. I finally gave up, and two and a half months after the initial interview, I was called to come start orientation in two weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • Would you be willing to drop everything and come to work if you were called in on your day off, even if you were in the middle of something?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. It was, "Here is the salary." I mentioned that it was less than what was posted on the website when I applied. He disregarded that, restated my starting salary. That was it. I accepted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at US Postal Service in March 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very simplistic for my position only because it is a very demanding, dangerous, life changing experience with no benefits. The system is built on carriers and the management treats you less than a person.

    Interview

    Was given a tour of the mail room. Met with the postal boss. He was nice. The interview was fast. He asked how much I could lift, destined the working conditions. Told me he'd hire me, but needed final approval from up top. A month later I was selected. Paper work took a while because people didn't do their job and move it to the right offices.
