    There was no interview as you pass the postal exam your hired. The only interview was a medical one to determine fitness for the labor intense duties. There was no actual in the conventional sense.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Seattle, WA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The process takes a lot of time. Plan on an average of 6 - 12 weeks, depending on the area. They are working on everyone's application and quite a few people apply there so, patience is necessary. Once you take your Civil Service Exam, you have to take a drug test and then you wait. Once you get called in, the interview is not too long, but very much to the point. Be prepared to answer the basic interview questions and supply any documentation for Veterans Status if it applies. After that, wait some more and they will let you know whether or not you got the job.

    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.
