    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at UPS (Spokane, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly easy, takes around 10 minutes. You go over your application, whether you're going to school, confirm that you're physically able to do the job. I had two interviews, one with the hr rep, and one with the supervisor. The same day I went to a third person which finalized the process and asked me to provide an SSN, and then advised me to complete forms online by the following Monday bringing in an ID and SS Card. There was no facility tour.

    Interview

    First was phone, then in person (no questions were asked I figured the job was mine I guess), a couple of personality tests. The process took a couple of weeks. I should have negotiated a better starting salary but didn't want to lose the opportunity for a couple of bucks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at UPS.

    Interview

    I applied online and received numerous calls and emails from HR to set up an interview. I was also told to call HR after my interview to learn about employee benefits. HR treated me as if I already had the job, which seemed strange. The interview itself was rather quick. It seemed as if the interviewer had already made up his mind not to hire me before the interview even took place.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UPS (Santa Fe Springs, Los Angeles, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty informal. It was for a part of the business that was recently acquired called I-Parcel. Its pretty neat, very small but is growing at a very rapid pace. The interview was extremely informal the only real question was "tell me about yourself". After i received the offer,before you receive a "formal" offer4 I was told id have to take the MRE test which was pretty challenging. It takes about 5 hours and you have to solve scenarios where customers are upset, employees are acting up etc., scheduling. The questions themselves aren't that difficult but the time you're given to answer them is minimal.

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at UPS.

    Interview

    panel interview that lasted for about an hour in a conference room with a few people sitting across from you. I do not remember much from the interview as it was a few years ago, but for the most part it was a pleasant experience, they did not go out of their way to trip you up or make you feel uncomfortable.
