    It was a 4 month process consisting of an application that took me 10 hours to complete, a multiple choice test, 2 interviews, fingerprints, background check, and a drug test. I got the word today that everything checks out so I just have to complete a medical assessment (no big deal: can I see, hear, bend over, climb ladders, etc.) and I will be employed by the USPS.

    I've been working full time for 23 years and never made more than $2 over minimum wage, but soon I'll be doubling my income. I can finally get my license back, buy a car, and of course some new gear (I'm thinking a couple of GK neo 15's and an MB500 head). I'm super-excited about this and just wanted to share.

    Awesome, I am on my way to a better job as well. Unfortunately I am being held up by the hours by the interim job on completing the training I need for the good job. I know a lot of folks at the USPS, enjoy it, good benefits. Congratulations!

    I sure hope that is true. Government jobs are not as sure as they once werre because of our budget problems.

    OP, I don't mean to rain on your parade. I certainly wish you all the best!:)

    I've heard about the hiring freeze and the Post Office cutting the Saturday delivery, but I've also noticed that they are getting more into package delivery. After all FedEx and UPS are busier than ever with online markerting. Heck, even Greyhound is delivering packages now.
