All applications must be submitted online.

Immediately after an application is accepted, applicants will be directed to information to assist in preparing for the Postal Entrance Examination 473.  Although this is the only test support material made available by the Postal Service, applicants might also choose to acquire additional test practice material from outside sources such as a library, bookstore, or online search.

A minimum score of 70 (excluding veterans’ preference points) is required to be considered for the position. Higher scores are given hiring preference, so it is very important to be prepared and do well on this exam.

To be considered for employment, an applicant must successfully pass a pre-employment drug screening to meet the U.S. Postal Service’s requirement to be drug free.

Applicants must also be a U.S. citizen or have a permanent resident alien status.
