PSE Mail Processing Clerk Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at US Postal Service.

Interview

There was a group of about 25 of us. We put in a large room, given some forms to fill out, then they would take us individually into another room to talk to us. Some of the supervisors were really nice. Some of them were mean--you just hoped that you wouldn't have to work for them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Postal Service (San Francisco, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Fill out the application, take the test (opinion based, not objective), take the second test (interview), then get fingerprinted, cleared, etc. I thought the exam was pretty tough (failed) even though it was supposedly based on our own personal opinion...Kinda sad I failed the test but I guess for future test takers...give them the answers they want to hear. Hint*

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Peoria, AZ) in August 2013.

    Interview

    In my office they would interview 15-20 people a day so competition is pretty high, but if you score high on the test and/ or a military veteran it should be easier to get hired. I recommend to buy/ borrow a book that will help you with the test and do a lot of practice.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Van Nuys, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Hiring and interview were a bit long but overall pretty easy, I would recommend applying the pay is good, and the job is stable, the staff was friendly and very helpful. And when I went back after I got hired they were really easy to talk to.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Atlanta, GA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process for USPS is arduous & protracted. For some positions it is done as a large group of people, while other positions are done individually. The worst part being that at no time are you judged on your individual skills, but rather can you work like an automaton.

    Interview

    Applied 12/28/2016
    473 exam 12/29/2016, score 84.9
    Interview 01/18/2017, downtown Detroit, MI

    Interview consisted of about 15 interview-ees and 7 interviewrs, so 7 people at a time. They went over the job description then asked normal interview questions, like tell me about a time you had a conflict with a co-worker, dealing with an angry customer, etc.

    Was told I would hear from them within a week if I am to move forward in the process. I'm assuming background and drug testing is next. Waiting for my email...

    Interview

    I was sent a email in October , I was scheduled for an interview on nov 4 . Had to be 60 people or more for interview but it was for 4 different locations and once . I've been on several Usps interviews and there usually don't feel like interviews they ask a few questions and told me be on the lookout for emails . Haven't heard from them since . Hopefully it's soon because it's great pay . I know they usually call people when they let go of the holiday workers . Just wondering if there's anyone else in my position and how long have you been waiting . Comment under interviews questions
