Applicants must create an external profile at http://usps.com/employment, fill out the online application, and follow the instructions to take Postal Examination 473.
All applicants must qualify on Examination 473 to be eligible for selection to a CCA vacancy. Qualified applicants must have a valid state driver's license, demonstrate and maintain a safe driving record, and successfully pass a pre-employment drug screening.
