    OK, still doing the job hunt thing. Exploring my options. I am taking the Civil Service test January 11, at 1pm. Just curious to see what I should expect.

    Thanks in advance.

    I took one for the post office, very easy. They actually sent me a book to study, that had all of the specific info on the test.

    Matt,
    Its Just general questions on a lot of subjects.
    Just get a good nights rest and do your best.
    When they give you your results (ask someone for this) look it over and no matter how you do.
    Don't quit! Keep taking them if you have to untill you get the results you want!!!
    After taking the test you will know more about the questions they ask.
    If they give you an interview Its your job to convence them that you are excited and really want a job.
