US Postal Exam 642

The US Postal Exam 642, used for supervisors, is a 90-minute, online, non-proctored exam. The test contains two sections—situational judgment and personal characteristics.

The situational judgement portion contains 48 items, to be completed within 60 minutes. This section analyzes your judgement in work-related situations. Each question presents a scenario, followed by two questions—what would you most likely do, and what would you least likely do?

The personal characteristics section contains 63 items, to be completed within 30 minutes. This section assesses your characteristics, traits, and tendencies toward achieving and obtaining an effective work performance.

It's important to answer the questions with a work setting in mind. When you encounter questions you can't relate to, base your answers off of similar experiences. Additionally, be sure to read the answer choices as there are different answer formats; some answers are in the form of strongly agree to strongly disagree, while other answer options are in the form of very often to rarely/never.
