How do you get hired by the US Postal Service?

There's an ad in my local paper that tells me to dial a 913 number. Then I hear a long message about how easy and good a post office job is. Just send them a $38 application fee (that they guarantee to return if you're not hired after a year). I went to and they had an 800 number that also made it seem too easy. How does it really work?

This company is a scam, and just wants your $38. Sure, they guarantee to return it - and how do you expect to enforce that? Here's the link to USPS re requirements: and on getting hired:
