    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at UPS in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied 10/20/14 and received my invitation for my interview at the end of the application. The interview time was for that day at 5. I immediately accepted it and printed off the directions. I showed up 20 minutes early but walked in 15 minutes early. Where I went for my interview was not the location of where I would be working if offered the job. I sat in the lobby for someone to come get me for like maybe 5-8 minutes. One other person showed up for an interview. When I was taken to the back I was then placed in a room with about 4 other candidates. The hiring people came to the door about every 5-10 minutes asking who was next. When it came to my turn I was called back and asked a few questions. I was offered the job on the spot. So my entire process took less than 24 hours because I applied 10/20 at about 7 or 8 in the morning.

    Interview Questions

    • There really wasn't anything difficult about this interview. They did ask me to wear khakis or jeans and boots but when I got to the place it was an office building.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at UPS (Buffalo, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring was different. The first round was a tour of the facility and a very brief overview of the company including a few slides about benefits. Honestly, the presentation was lousy. There were 15 of us grouped together to look over the plant with an HR rep. that could barely be heard above the hum of the moving belts. Additionally, the rep. rapped up the plant tour by saying, "I can schedule an appointment for a second interview if any of you are still interested in working at UPS". It felt as if this person was apologizing. When did you make a real effort to win me over? After several questions at the end I felt like I had a decent idea of what was expected.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at UPS (Vernon, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    It was a group interview (15 people) led first by the HR director and then the Union rep introduced himself and the EXACT DETAILS of the position. He was VERY direct. He basically told everybody what the job requirements were and if you agreed to it you MUST work for a full year without 1 missed day. If you decide to quit within that first year, he stated very openly to everbody the UPS policy, which is "You quit in the first year, you can NEVER EVER APPLY WITH UPS IN YOUR LIFETIME. Interesting to say the least....

    I'm a frail 20 year old college student the work out conflicted with my schedule & they couldn't promise that I wouldn't be required to lift 70lbs items

    I applied online – interviewed at UPS in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online, then immediately selected a date on which to take a tour of the hub and be interviewed for the position. As other reviews have said, there's no need to be well-dressed. Come in whatever you want.

    After all the interviewees waited in a room for a little while, the lady from HR came in, gave a brief summary of the job (almost word-for-word what's on the website) and took the group on a brief tour of the hub. Following this, everyone went back into the room and she called us one-by-one for our "interviews."

    A little more than a week later (during which they were performing a background check), the call came offering me the job.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't really an "interview," at least not in the traditional sense. She just asked for your social security number, asked if you're currently going to school, and confirmed what shift you were applying for.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at UPS in October 2014.

    Interview

    The Interview was pretty brief and fast. Basic questions regarding your availability, social security for background checks, ID, and making sure you knew that this wasn't a job you that you could ditch at a moments notice. They gave packets to everyone in the queue to be interviewed about. At first glance everyone seemed displeased about the union deduction pay since the entry fee was 500 dollars. She also didn't guarantee that we would get regular hours seeing as they where going to hire that many more people.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at UPS (Gulfport, MS) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Found job opening on job site. Went to UPS site to complete application. At the end it said next appt/tour was later that morning. I booked it and went to the local job center where it was being held. About 15 people met in a conference room where the recruiter talked about the company and the jobs available. Then we met with her one on one for a brief interview. Just basic easy questions. She entered information into her computer as we spoke. Told her I had a felony and she acted as though it were no big deal. She said she would email once the background check came back in 5 to 7 days, although in my case it could be a little longer due to my background.

    It has been three weeks and I have yet to hear from them. I hear having to wait two to three weeks is common, however.
