Based on the reviews i've read the email u pretty quickly. My question is being that i live in ny currently will the give me the opportunity to do an interview and training up here and in a few weeks transfer and work down there? Or will i just have to pick up and leave to go and do my interview and training down there?

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Reno, NV).

    Interview

    Mostly about how my experience would fit the job. Weather, strength, driving ability. I read several posts about an interview of this sort but they varied. My best advise is don't expect anything but to focus more on your attitude & making a connection.

    Interview

    No interview. Still waiting. Applied online and passed the personality test. Then I took the postal exam test - passed. About 1-2 weeks after that, I took the drug test. This was a couple days ago. I have not heard back for an interview.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online 3/15/2015 on 3/23/2015 I received and email asking me to go take the 473 exam which I scored an 80 on. My application moved to hiring list on one application and prehire list on the other application on 4/23/2015. Today 7/10/2015 I received an email asking me to submit a form via fax to submit my background check!! I have not received any invite to do an interview so I am lost at what is going to go on now!! I am hoping this is a good sign. But many people are saying they have the interview before the background check is asked.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Postal Service (Sarasota, FL).

    Interview

    Other reviews describe hiring process. I want to let everyone know (Sarasota FL 2016) that if hired for this, you only have ONE guaranteed day of work, you WILL work Sundays and Holidays, NO benefits, NOT a career position, and not much chance of getting into any position that's better. More packages than mail, so like FEDEX or UPS.

    Interview

    Short and sweet. But the process after the interview "Academy Training " is Critical. If you fail at any part of the process training, it will be six months before you can test again.
