my understanding is that you should have gotten the results already. Phone your HR person. Is your correct address on file?

I took the battery 473 exam on the 7th of dec and I just got my test score back on the 22th of dec. I scored a 83.8, I was wondering if anybody from Chicago got around the same score and has been hired in last month.
As well before I received my test scored about two weeks ago they sent me a paper for reschedule test date but I could not make that date. I don't know what that was about.

If anyone out there gets hired here in Chicago with a score in

Why would they tell you to restest if you just had took the test. But the lady in the post office told me they should be hiring around spring time of this year

I have nothing to lie about.. I received my test score on the 22 of Jan and it my score expire on the 01-16-2010. I got a score of 83.80. I did receive I reschedule test date for the 15th of Jan when I had taking the test on Friday 7, 2006, but I missed that date because I had to work. The woman you talk to at the post office to you a lie or she didn't know what ahe was talking about. I have no clue why other people have not receive the score back here in Chicago but I do have mine. The return addreess is for the HARRISON STREET POST OFFICE.

I took the 473 exam in early December 2007 in Chicago, and received my exam results earlier this week.

I got a basic rating of 84.90 (no vet points). I wish I knew where I stood with that score, but I guess I will just wait and see.

Here is an example of how long it can take to reach a score of 83.5. Of course it is dependent on how many people took the test, how many passed, and how many positions are eventually filled from the list, etc. Town of 30,000 people, about 200 people tested. Test was for positions within the state. Took approximately 2 years to start receiving orientation letters, and took 2 years and 9 months to actually be hired. What one has to remember is that scores range from over 100 with Vet Preference points to 70. Sometimes it can take a while.

No scores can vary from 110 points to 70 points.
You can score 100 in the test plust either 5 or
10 points added for Veteran's preference.

In the 1970's and with a score of 95 it took
a year and a half at my office to be called in.
So it is going to depend on exactly what the
above post stated with the exception of the
scores/

You're tests can take several weeks. USPS is not hiring nobody, only casuals and T.E.'s. In Puerto Rico over 30,000 took the test and no one was hired,what I heard, they have to open an announcement ever so often, but they don't have to hire. Only war heroes wounded in action.

Mid 80's is a good score on the new exam and the score at which we are hiring here in the Northeast. On the old exam, I had a score of 103- 98 5 vet points and it took a year and a half before I got hired, disabled vets all go first.

After reading several of the preceding posts, I am really discouraged that our mail is entrusted to people not being able to spell or form sentence structure. I wonder if they can read at acceptable level for the job.
