Job Requirements: All hirees must have a minimum score of 70 on the Postal Battery Exam. No prior experience required.
Due to the limited experience requirements for postal service hirees, the USPS administers an online exam to screen potential applicants. This exam, the 473E, tests the postal service applicant on the skill set required to be a postal employee. The test is administered only once per applicant, and will be used to evaluate your candidacy for any Postal position for at minimum 4 months. A minimum score of 70 out of 100 is required to be considered.
Below are brief descriptions of major positions now available through the Postal Service. More detailed information will be sent directly to you via email when you complete the qualification process above.
