What is the difference between hiring list and pre hiring

10 answers

  • I have applied for usps in the past many times before. I’ve done a background with his a few times I applied. But was never selected for a position. Well this time I applied for a pse position on 7/16/19 and received a call on 7/19 to interview in person on 7/22. Well I haven’t received any emails for a background or drug test? Just curious because I scored a 98 on the 477 exam and my interview went great. My past job experiences definitely matches well with the job. The PM said I should expect an email in 3 days. Just wondering what to expect because like I said I haven’t received emails for background check or drug test. Plus on the usps login site it says pre hire list in process.

  • Postal office they have me on the pre-hire list

  • Prehire usually means you are being considered for an interview. That was not the case for me. I was on a prehire list for 6 months and then received an email stating that I was not selected for the position. Hire list usually means that you've been selected after your interview and hopefully you'll receive an offer.

  • Hiring List means you have been already been approved to be hired, while pre-hiring list means you are being reviewed for hiring list.

  • Pre hiring list is when you are being considered and they will send you a email for your interview. Hiring list is when you are recommended after your interview. Offer phase is when they send you the “accept/decline” meaning you have the job.

  • Hiring List names are provided with no information on the individual

    Pre Hires have already been screened.

  • Pre hiring list

  • Pre-hire means you are a candidate for a possible interview. Hire means you have met all the requirements and are a job offer is received.

  • I don't know what the difference is between these two, but you want to look for Offer Phase (EXT), that's the last possible step I believe. Pre-hire could mean you still need to drug test or interview.

  • My understanding is that pre hiring list means you are waiting for an interview and hiring list means you were recommended.
