Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2017.

Interview

Applied on 10/23/17, emailed for interview on 11/1 to be scheduled on 11/6. Attended interview amongst possibly 100 people. A lot of people end up leaving before the main part of process due to not understanding the job is temporary unless otherwise stated on job posting. Application reviewed then interview. Depending on how many interviewers available you may do one one or in group with 2 to 8 people. Overall easy process. Next day I received an offer by email which you are given 7 days. Another email was to consent to background check. Then another email to schedule drug test. After I completed all that by 11/13. I received an email on 11/15 to come in on 11/17 for final processing.

Be prepared to be there for 2 to 5 hours.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Not really an interview as much as just waiting for them to check you off and let us know what type of work it is.
    A room full of people (about 200-250) waiting to get through the interview. Resume/background & punctuality/listening to basic rules seemed good enough to get hired.
    They seemed really in need of people but want determined people that really want the job. Said they needed to hire about 900 people. It seemed like a first come first serve but they let people who came late by an hour to join us.
    I guess there wasn't enough interviewers so the process took about 8 hours. It was supposed to be about a 4 hour process.
    No books. No phones. No "resting your eyes". Still got to be professional.
    For a seasonal/ temporary position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Portland, OR) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Submitted a background check and drug test. There was a short personal interview at one of the three mail processing plants in the city. There were two interviewers that were polite and asked standard questions pertaining to my previous work experience. For more permanent positions there is also an online personality test and a proctored skill/memory test that you have to pass. The personality test is easy as long as you exaggerate how nice and helpful you are. You can prepare for the proctored test online.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Lafayette, LA).

    Interview

    The entire process ocess was very laid back and pleasant. I think that they were more concerned with personality than skill, which worked out well for me. Interviewer asked a lot about background, college coursework, plans after graduation, etc. He explained the details of the position quite well and I think that he was surprised by the number of questions that I had in the end. Downside was the length of time between interview and start date: 2 months.
