Postal Exam 473-E: Completing the Assessment Process

Working for the United States Postal Service means receiving great pay and a wide array of benefits which include health and life insurances, retirement plans, thrift savings plans, and paid leaves, just to name a few. Thus, it isn’t surprising that competition for the various postal worker jobs is tough. Most of the time, there are thousands of applicants all over the nation for career-track positions compared to the number of postal jobs available.

Anyone who wishes to become a USPS postal employee begins by creating an eCareer Profile at the USPS website (www.usps.com). This will create your profile in the site so you can begin applying for jobs posted in the system. When you have completed your profile, make sure that you take note of your Candidate ID. You can find this by clicking on the upper-left hand corner of the screen in the “Show Roadmap” tab. Once there, click on the “Assessments” tab where you will be able to find your Candidate ID.

After applying for a particular job opening, an email will be sent to you informing you of the time needed to complete the assessment process. For those positions requiring the postal test 473, you are given around two weeks or 14 days to finish the assessment after the USPS has contacted you.

Once you hear from the Postal Service about your assessment account, you will be asked to login to the USPS online assessment system at https://secure.vitapowered.com/usps/login.screen using the credentials given to you in your email. In the first step of your assessment, you will be asked to give basic and voluntary information about yourself. You will be given an email invitation to your email address. Make sure that you follow the instructions there to be able to proceed to the next step of the assessment process.

The second step involves completing the online assessment which you can do from any computer. You are usually given 90 minutes to do so. Once you have successfully completed this assessment, you are asked to schedule yourself for a proctored assessment which will be given at a supervised testing site. This will take another 90 minutes to complete and can only be taken at an approved location.

Take note that failure to complete the assessment on the specified time will render you ineligible for the position you have applied for. However, this will not bar you from taking the assessment again for another postal position. You will have to start from scratch and go through the whole process all over again.
