    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    First I did the online application. Then I did the assessment test. Then I was invited to come and take the 473 battery test. Then about three weeks later I was invited to interview. Then about a week and a half later I received an email telling me to background check drug test and come in for a paper session. At the paper session we were told if we passed the background check and drug test we would be hired so and then we had to do fingerprinting also so that's where I'm at now.

    PSE, Sales & Distribution Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Submitted application on 2/23/17 & immediately received request to complete online assessment. As soon as the assessment was completed, I was asked to take the 473 proctored exam. I took the exam on 2/28/17 and scored an 84. It's not the greatest score, so I am concerned that I won't be offered employment. On 2/28/17 after the exam, my status online stated "Pre Hire List" & then one day later, 3/1/17 it then said "Pre Screening" - not sure what either mean and if the difference in status is a positive step forward. I hope I hear something soon on next steps in the process.
