Certification or Licensing
Although certification is not required, applicants for USPS mail carrier jobs must take civil service examinations. The written examination is composed of three parts, the longest of which is a general intelligence test that includes questions on simple arithmetic, spelling, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. Applicants must also pass a test section that covers reading accuracy, in which they compare addresses arranged in pairs and indicate similarities or differences. The third test section examines the applicant's ability to follow instructions in making changes on a mailing scheme and in routing mail.
