  • Applied Sometime in December of 2021, received a job offer on February 15th of 2022, I filled yes to the job offer, then was told to call for fingerprinting, went for fingerprints the next day, and filled out the background check through the email they sent that same day, during the fingerprints they told me the requirements of the jobs and if i was still interested to sign, so I signed then they went ahead and tool fingerprints of all 10 fingers, after that they told me I should be receiving an Orientation invitation within the next 2 to three weeks. Now just waiting. Overall it's been a long process

  • I filled out the online application on December 26th 2021. I took the online test on December 30th along with background checks, fingerprints and paperwork January 14th. Today I received my welcome letter and orientation dates to be a city carrier assistant.

  • Applied and was sent job offer within a couple of weeks. Went for fingerprinting and background check. 2 months later and job was rescinded and readvertised next day. Wasted a half a tank of gas and 2 months of job searching for USPS to jerk me off. Way to go USPS
