Its takes about 2 days for the whole interview process, and no felonies are required. Also you have to list if you were ever fired or terminated from a job and why.

    Interview

    The hiring process was a breeze. I've already worked for USPS, so I was only a phone call away. The only thing that I was required to do was complete the paperwork for the new position.

I no that a 100 passes the exam 473, what is the overall average score that is being scored on the test?

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Beverly Hills, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I am reviewing this through my experiences as a newcomer, this was my first interview. Please keep in mind that Im new to this and not very good at remembering things so chances are some few details here and there might be a bit foggy, my apologies. Also because I didnt follow directions properly I was never given a chance at an interview in the end.

    Like everyone else, the process time was about the same: a couple of weeks after your initial application date, where you get an invitation to an interview. I was so foolish, I was so happy when I saw that interview invitation thinking I got a chance to get a job considering I had a very poor resume with little job experience. Technically you do have a chance but it turns out the invitation was through an automatic process where lots and lots of other people were invited as well.

    Some reviews said 30-40 other people were in the interview with them. In my case, it was around 100+. You go to the usps location on your appointment date, where they take you to an auditorium-like place and talk to you about what to expect from the job. I dont remember exactly, but PSE, Casual, and job titles with things like "(Holiday Term)" in it are just temporary, not a career. Once you complete that and they think you did a great job, you'll be put on a list (if you agree to it) for a year long term and you'll be hired IF NEEDED. If they hire too many people and need to lay off some people, those that got laid off can still get put on a list for future consideration. Termination and resigning are a different story. After that, career opportunities may arise and then you can start thinking about a permanent job there.

    The Foggy part:
    The USPS has lots of different locations/districts and if you apply to the Los Angeles district for example and do a temporary job there, you'll be put on a higher priority list should you apply there again, but only to the specific Los Angeles district, and not others (Santa Clarita for example). They did mention that seniority carries over as you work in the usps but I dont remember if they said this applies to specific districts or not.

    This was all I heard before I was prompty kicked out for wearing shorts. Dont be silly like me, wear business attire, follow that interview invite directions exactly! Or maybe the person there didnt like me for some reason because I know I saw a couple people wearing pants there too...

    Either way, good luck to you all.
