Ramp Agent Hiring Process

It’s been a little over 4 weeks since I’ve completed my fingerprinting and drug screening. Ive been eager to hear from USPS or my recruiter but have yet to receive anything via call or email. How long does this process take? Should I contact my recruiter?

Hi @ccamp1123. Good question! 3-4 weeks is a pretty normal turnaround time on the USPS background check right now, so I wouldn't worry. If you haven't heard by next week, either let me know here or shoot over an email to your recruiter. Thanks for your patience!

Hi, how does the in-person interview for this position work? Is it a group interview? Thank you!

Hi @williamh thanks for getting back to me. I was hopeful to hear something this past week but didn’t. It has been 6 weeks now. I’m not sure how much you can help me but my name is Cameron Campbell, I’m hired on out of CMH. In addition I was also wondering if I should send out a quick check up email with my recruiter? Thanks again

Hey @ccamp1123 - Thanks for checking back in! I messaged your Recruiter, Caitlin, this morning and she (or one of our Coordinators) will reach out to you today to touch base. Sorry for the delay here!

Hi William,  I’m also out of cmh and having a difficult time getting ahold of my recruiter my screening was completed on 12/21 that was the last update I received I reached out to the two recruiters I had but I haven’t received a response

@williamh no worries at all! She did reach out to me and later in the afternoon I got word that it finally came back. Thanks for your help again! @tonimarie00 I had been waiting since 12/13 so it’s possible you still have another week or so if the timeline is similar to mine. Hope this helps!
