    City Carrier Assistant (CCA) Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Babylon, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    This process has a lot of steps & is very lengthy.
    Submitted application - 2/7/17
    Assessment Invite - 2/8/17 (Personality test)
    Scheduled Exam 473 - 2/16/17
    Side note: Applied for 2 more position - 2/16/17
    Interview invite - 2/21/17
    Motor vehicle record search - 2/21/17
    Scheduled Interview - 2/23/17 (Missed bc I was out of the state on vacation, could not reschedule)
    Interview Invite - 3/3/17 (Applied twice for the same postion)
    Scheduled Interview - 3/9/17
    Conditional job offer - 3/15/17
    Background check - 3/15/17
    Drug test - 3/15/17

    You need to stay on top of your email. They give you deadlines to get certain things done by. The interview process was very long that day. There was over 100 people that showed up. I arrived an hour early which got me a lower number and was one of the first people to interview. HR tells you more about the positions and what to expect. I would say half of the people left before their interview.
