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!

  I was also hired on for the ramp back in August(2021) and was told 3-4 weeks, but took almost 6 weeks for my USPS to come back. Hopefully by now the process has been improved since then. Congrats and Welcome to the team. The worst part was waiting for the background checks to come back. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions

Hi, do you have any recommendations  for the phone interview? Also, for the in-person, do they do it like a group interview? Or is it one to one? Thank you!

Hey @victorulloa! Our Recruiters have a weekly information session that covers questions like this, and has a Q&A portion if they don't cover yours. Come by tomorrow! It's from 12-1pm CT and you can register to attend by visiting htps://swa.is/CareerConnections. Good luck!
