Post Office Interview?

Okay, so I'm practically a veteran when it come to applying to jobs with the U.S. Postal Service. I've apied to roughly 25 or so, but I've never been able to make the interviews for the ones that got that far along. Background: the application process consists of a background investigation, drug screen, and interview as far as I know. My question is, what method are the hiring managers using?! I've been invited to interview before the background or drug screen; I've been backgrounded then drug screened, but no interview, and I've had the drug screen but no background or interview. In a few days I'll be interviewing for a clerk position which has backgrounded and drug screened, and also a temp relief carrier but no anything else. Also, like I've stated, I've been through this all before. Why in the world isn't a drug screen good for a certain number of days, or a background check good for a few weeks? For a quasi-government, independently funded agency is seems like a waste of money and unnecessarily redundant to background someone 15 times or have someone take drug tests 6 times all in a two month period. Anyone know why they operate lime this???

I'm surprised they are hiring at all since they want to shed employees.
