I interviewed at US Postal Service

Very easy. The paperwork took much longer. I had to go to the district headquarters to meet with the person who would be my supervisor. I had to have my fingerprints taken.

Very EASY yet challenging interview process, must score high on the tests they require. Take your time and redo the tests to score high if you want the job, if you score high you will get hired, then you have to go in person to provide your documentation and you are hired.

Interview Questions
  • What would you do in this situation... if this happened etc, varies for position you are applying for.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Columbia, MD)

Interview

Started with video where you basically sell yourself. If they like it they bring you in for a interview at their Bolger facility. You are interviewed and if selected they try to accommodate your top 3 choices.

Interview Questions
  • I asked them if they could consolidate all of their mail (letters, packages, etc) into one type of machine. I don’t remember their answer but after I started working I realized that it would be hard to do that. Because of the volume of mail it is not practical

Nice people, very detailed and understanding. Answered all my questions and was attentive about my interview and background check. Seems like great benefits but long and hard work but it’s what you make of it.

They called us into a large room and explained the nature of the job. The process felt more like an orientation than an interview. However, you were expected to dress as you would for an interview.

Easy questions, hire pretty much everyone that passes screening during peak season. The only hard this was taking a proctored test at a testing center. But the test wasn’t that hard, just inconvenient.
