PSE Clerk Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at US Postal Service.

Interview

Applied online. Received an appointment to take the postal test (which is mostly memory) through e-mail the same day. Took the test later that week, and received my score the same day. Almost three weeks passed before I received another e-mail inviting me in for an interview. The interview was very informal. If you get invited to the interview and can pass the drug test and background check, your basically hired.
However, the job is only guaranteed for 90 days.

    Interview

    First you apply on-line. Than they will send you an invite to the exam. The exam is straight forward computer based. If you score decent 75 or better they will call you for an interview. The interview is a few questions. The ones I was asked is Why do you want to work here. How long have you been considering a job at the Post Office. Do early morning hours bother you.

    Negotiation

    None 15.63 an hour no benefits.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at US Postal Service in November 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online back in June and then in Aug was sent an email to go take an assessment, got my scores back from that within a few hours. After doing so I thought that I would have heard something back, but didn't get an email extending an offer to come in for an interview until November. Once I went on the interview I was joined by another person and it just consisted of filling out forms. No questions were asked or anything. After the forms were filled out I was told to take a drug test. All of this took 4 hours after i was told it would only be an hour and a half. The next day I received a phone calling telling me to come in the following day for a physical. The physical was a "group" physical that consisted of filling out more paper work that lasted 2 hours. And no actual "physical" took place. After that I was told I was hired and to come on Monday for training.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at US Postal Service.

    Interview

    There was no real interview. We were told to come in for an "interview" and it was just a basic overview of the position. They then went down the list by who had the highest scores on the placement test. You gave them all your info and went to another room to get documentation to take a drug test. If you passed the drug test you are called back to get your fingeprints done and get your orientation information.

    Negotiation
