    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at UPS (Portland, OR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Showed up to the "Interview" appointment early and waited for the HR rep to arrive. Most people were just wearing a t shirt, jeans, and sneakers. The HR rep arrived and gave a brief overview of the position.Tried to weed potential candidates out by scaring them off, stating that the job is "not for people who are looking to pay their bills" and is extremely hard work for little pay. Judging by the tour that was given afterwards, that seems totally believable. Was quite a long process, but there were quite a lot of details to share. After the tour and some details about the pay, benefits, and requirements for the job, we were asked if we wanted to schedule an interview.

    Offered the interview, and haven't attended yet.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at UPS (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Arrive on time and wait for the other people that is getting interview. When the person call our names we follow then from there she told use what the pay is which is $11.00 in NY and orientation pay was $10. Than the interview was average what the last jobs you did and why you want to work for ups. After that you wait for the background test to clear then you get a date to report for a 4 day training course which well quiz you and give you hands on training to see if you can do more than just loading packages. Like loader which load the trailer and unloaded which unload the trailer. After all that it depends if you know the safety rules of ups to pass the quiz to see if you are good to work in a fast pace environment if you did not pass the first quiz then try again no pressure.

    If you need money and can work from 4am-8am and have the rest of the day for yourself than go for it. If you do not want the jobs than it may depend on luck to land a job in this economy.
