    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 4+ weeks. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Arlington, VA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, took postal exam 473E, received test results via email, and received request for background check via email.

    About 20 days after applying and taking the exam, I received an invitation to interview. Arrived at the facility, signed in, and within 2 minutes was called into manager's office to have a one-on-one interview that lasted about 15 minutes. Questions were very typical, and I was essentially told I had the job as I walked out and to keep a close eye on my email inbox for further notice (urine test and official job offer). There was no group interview or informational meeting beforehand.

    Brief, a little awkward (from the interviewee side) Seemed like the interviewee was ordered into the position by a higher up and decided to accept the task.
    Surprised me that it went rather quick.

    It was easier 19 years ago, a little bit more tricky hiring process these days. You had to pass a very hard memory test & at least score above 90 to even be considered for a phone call. Had about 3 different interviews with 3 different cities. Lucked out & got hired in the city I grew up in.
