Postal Job

I filled out an application a few weeks ago and they said that they would be mailing the test information, about how long does it take to get that info, and how much time do they give you before you take the test, if anybody knows this info please pass it along, as I still have not recieved the test info.

Im not going to tell you what I have done to it, im just going to say that its not stock, thank you.

Takes like 6 weeks to get your papers back, then they set a test date (like a weeks notice), then you get your results back (I got mine in 3 weeks or so), and you wait on an Interview. It could be today, or 2 years down the road. They have been testing THOUSANDS of people, so just sit tight

Thanks for the input, and you know the thing that gets me is that when I go to the post office I get alot of people that cant even speak English, and I am having a hard time with all of this memory shit!! And are they even hiring, last time I checked the website they had tons of jobs, now none!!

Im not going to tell you what I have done to it, im just going to say that its not stock, thank you.

Yeah, they are hiring, you just have ALOT of competition. To give you an idea of how many people they are interviewing, the test I went too had ATLEAST 1000+ people there, and that was only one of 4 test THAT DAY, and they have been testing for weeks now. I will admit, of all the people there, I think I was the only Clean cut white guy there lol

On the form you filled out it says that it will take 10 to 12 weeks before you hear anything for a test date and then you have to wait another 10 to 12 weeks before you even hear about your test results. All i can say is that it is almost like the military were it takes time to go thru the whole process, and also your test score's last for 2 years and they can be extended for another year.
Just be patient and they will call you, i took the test back in 1995 and never studied for the test and passed anyway the test is not that all hard and you can buy the book on amazon.com so you will know whats on the test. Hope this helps?

Yeah it does take while a lil example my Father now has been @ the Post Office for 22yrs but he had prior military and it still took him 5yrs before they called him. Course that was a long time ago but then again my Uncles brother in-law took the test blah blah and was hired within a 1yr of it so you never know how long.

Test isn't hard, and I don't think its something you can really study for. Its looking for mistakes in addresses, and memorizatiion
