Interview Tips

The Interview is an important part of the hiring process. You should come to the interview prepared.

You want to set a positive impression. Smile, and be friendly. Dress nice, and look presentable. If hired, you will be representing the nations largest employer, so you will need to be a good ambassador.

Walk thru it in your mind a few times before you arrive. Don’t ask a thousand questions, focus on convincing the interviewer why you should be chosen for the job.

First impressions matter. Show confidence. You might even consider role playing with your family or friends. Have them ask you some tough questions: “Why do you want to work for the USPS?”, “What are your strengths?”, “What are your weaknesses?”, “Why are you the best person for the job?”, “Are you a team player?”.
As the Boy Scout motto says: “Be Prepared”

Make sure on the day of your interview you arrive early. Shopping up late could be a deal killer. It’s best to show up 30 minutes early. This sends the message that you are taking this job seriously. Plus you never know if there is accident on the road, which could cause a delay, and end your chance of getting hired.
