the USPS is a great place to work, however their hiring process is backwards. I don't feel they make you feel secure about working here. You risk your previous job I feel for something that might not be solid. they make you go through this whole hiring process just to be let down in the end I feeI. So I got hired, did my fingerprints and went through the whole process, then took my clerk academy as I was asked, took the test and failed it, now I'm out of a job., because that one of their conditions, you have to pass the test in order for you to keep your position. So I now have no job, with a family of 4 and very little income coming in. Its a great place but beware of their conditions to work for them.
