    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at UPS (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Disorganized dog-and-pony show; two-day process for me to discover it is a come-on. I applied online on a Thursday. The system gave me an appointment immediately for the following Monday at 2pm. I was one of about 25 candidates. The HR rep gave us a rundown of the job, pay, benefits, etc. Those of us still interested were told to come back for interviews the next day. We did, all for the same time, and were told the rep would be an hour late. "How do you interview everyone at once?" you might ask. You don't. So the process took HOURS. It is much like going for a civil service job--you wait, and wait, and wait, and get jerked around.

    I came to find out UPS is not really serious about hiring anybody. You need 40 working days to get on the job or they let you go (you may be scheduled and show up only to find out they don't need you and be sent home). A lot of guys are let go after 39 days. They don't make the union, they don't get on the job. UPS just uses them as non-union, temporary help while making them think they're getting a job out of it.

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at UPS.

    Interview

    No phone interview. One face-to-face interview was with one Manager and one supervisor. The other face-to face interview was with one Manager and two supervisors. The interview process was professional. The questions were not very tricky, most were about your past experience. The whole hiring process was very efficient.

    Interview

    TAKES 8 years to 10 years to become a drivers for UPS.

    The interview started with someone from the human resources came out from the door to great us. After that she point to the job description paper and ask if everyone has read it? Then she went into more how the job is but she started with all the negatives things about the job like very hard work for only 3-5 hours long... Also must be able to handle 800 boxes an hour for the job. Then she told us about the hours that we were able to pick. The shifts were sunrise 3.00 is to 9.00 or twilight 8:.00 pm to 12:00 am. Also have to work 5 days a week. After that was all done she let us think about if we really wanted the job about 5m or so. Then we were able to talk to her one on one so she could write down some information about you.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at UPS (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me to discuss my current position and explained in depth what the position required. That part took 45 minutes...I "passed" to the second round which was a link for a TIMED test...it was a mental test that stressed me out and I think they should give that test first before wasting 2-3 hours of my life...that test was ridiculous

    Interview

    My Inerview took place in 2006 with Kelly services and most of the supervisors and hr from back then are gone. This is one of the reasons I hate doing these reviews. This review does not take into account you may speaking to a former employee.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are usually pulled off the internet and are very general . Went thru Kelly Services for the position which is cheaper for the company.   1 Answer

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at UPS (League City, TX).

    Interview

    I went in for a group interview, was kind of awkward because everyone just had to stand in the office while the clerk desk was open and customers were coming in and out, but after being hired I realized there really isn't anywhere to conduct interviews in a lot of these locations. I was called into two interviews I believe and I was basically hired on the second one. The first one included personal interviews where you were called away from the group one by one and then usually if you are called back for another interview, you will be hired. It took a really long time from the hiring date to actually start my first day of work however.. Almost a month I beleive

    Interview Questions

    • Interviews aren't long, they just asked for your information and made sure you understood that this was a physical job that required safety procedures to be followed every day at every shift.   Answer Question

    It was very laid back and easy, we took a tour of the plant in a group walk through with other people looking for work. After the tour ended we were told that if the job wasn't for us we could leave with no hard feelings and no questions ask.
