    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.

    Positive Experience
    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.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Huntington Park, Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    It was a large group interview with one surly man directing it. There isn't really much more to say because there were 10 others in the room and we all did the exact same thing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at US Postal Service (San Francisco, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied January 2016. First interview was January 21. Did not hear anything back. They emailed me for another interview February 11. I still have not received any offer. But they just emailed me a job fair for usps. To LEARN HOW TO APPLY for jobs! As if I don't know how to apply for the job that they interviewed me for two times. Made me call off my current job 4 times just to go through the same thing over again. I understand there's a process but making me do it many times is a waste.
