Dear members,

How long does it typically take to move along in the hiring process? I've applied for a position with USPS over a week ago and I'm currently at the "pre-screening" stage for a week. There's no test involved for this position (AFAIK).

Thank you




PS I tried searching for this answer 7 pages back and couldn't find it.

I think my timeline will be different as there is no Exam to take, this is a mid-management level job. However, I think you're right "no one has a freaking clue", it could be 2 weeks or a month. I hope not longer than a month.

I understand, I am just trying to get some sense of how long this could take if anyone on the forum can chime in if they have the experience.

Unfortunately there is no way to estimate the time it will take. "Pre-screening" is done on all applicants. It will depend on how many applicants are on the hiring roster for the position. If you know you are the only one on the list, the hold up could be on the final authorization from the compliment committee. Frequently local managers are impatient and make offers/promises of jobs before they have authorization, and then the position is nixed. 1st rule for employees: be patient; 2nd rule be flexible.

It honestly varies depending on the postal needs and location. I know for some it takes months and others it may take weeks. Be patient and good luck.

I'm in the middle of my background/driving record check for CCA at the post office near me. After about 3 weeks they called back and told me they found something on my record that I didn't disclose, so I would need to come back and fill that part of the application out again, and be honest. I could not recall what that would have been so I went to my DMV and got a copy of my record. When I saw it I remembered I got pulled over and cited for not having my correct address on my ID. So I went back and filled that part of the application again.

I'm just wondering if they will do the whole 2-3 week process again or if its done, and that's what they came up with, and just wanted me to fix it and that's all. If so I consider myself very lucky they gave me a chance to come back and resubmit that part.

I'm just hoping I get a call in few days and not a few weeks again.

Thank you for your reply Kimberly. Are you a USPS employee? I've applied for a position at the HQ in DC, that has nothing to do with mail. I'm hoping to a status update by the end of next week. Do you think it be good to call the HQ and ask about whats going on if it still shows "pre-screening" by the end of next week?

This isn't a CCA position it's a mid-managament level position.

However, this is strange I received notice that the vacancy has been cancelled. However, just yesterday they have re-opened the vacancy...** is going on? Somewhere I read they do this to try and get a certain applicant hired (usually a family member or relative) so they cancel and re-open until their pre-selected applicant gets in....
