Mail Processing Clerk Interview

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Charleston, WV) in January 2014.

Interview

The interview is more of a formality to make sure everyone understands what to expect in the workplace, very rarely is there any competition within the group of eligible hires as they typically take only as many people in for an interview as they plan on hiring at the time.

    Interview
    The entire process took just over a month, and about a month and a half till the start of orientation (Remember this is a government job so there's always extensive screening processes). I did an online application on December 10th, 2014. Following my submission, I was emailed a link to complete an online assessment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Houston, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Disorganized and Unqualified HR...waited hours..couldn't find anyone's paperwork. They did not start on time. They had no idea who was supposed to show up. They could not read names or remember names...then blamed us. Waited and waited. Some got upset. Bathrooms were dirty. Pay is less. They talk about innovation...but no where near to that. I don't see how that place functions like that.
