I applied online and interviewed at UPS.
Interview Details – Call with recruiter, phone interview, now waiting for next steps.
Interview Question – Can you describe a time when you used financial data to identify key business planning issues or concerns? Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at UPS in April 2010.
Interview Details – Saw opportunity on school career site. Submitted resume and cover letter on company site. Received call from HR representative about setting up a first-round phone interview. Had phone interview, which focused on questions around how I broke problems down and how I analyzed and interpreted data. Was invited to corporate headquarters for final round interview day with a group of other candidates. Interview day consisted of three 45 minute 1:1 interviews, one written case and one assessment test. Overall it was a very pleasant day, complete with a tour of the building, a relaxing lunch and shuttle back to our hotel. However, all of the good vibes I felt after that day dissipated in the coming weeks. There was zero follow up from the company for over 5 weeks. While I recognize they were interviewing other candidates over a series of weeks, and that they were going to need the "2 to 3 weeks" they mentioned to get back to us, the complete lack of transparency was unsettling and, quite frankly, unprofessional, especially in comparison to the other companies I've interviewed with. When I finally received their answer, it was in a letter mailed to my apartment that was addressed to the wrong person in the salutation line. Overall, I left the entire experience disillusioned with UPS, which was unfortunate given how excited I was about the company, the people and the effort they are clearly putting into expanding the size and influence of the marketing organization.
Interview Question – Tell us about a time you made assumptions in analyzing data. How did you arrive at those assumptions? How did you integrate into your analysis? Answer Question
The process took 2 days - interviewed at UPS in April 2010.
Interview Details – They were all very nice during the phone screening and interview day - they showed us around the building, had lunch for us, and drinks during the break period. The interview consisted of 3 45-minute behavioral interview questions plus a case study and analytical assessment. I wouldn't say their interview process was difficult, it was just a little draining. The interview started at 8am and we wrapped up around 4pm. I felt pretty confident leaving but I think they were looking for someone with more experience. It was a little disheartening speaking them a few weeks following my interview. The positive experience I had interviewing was negated by the follow up email and phone calls that were not warm and friendly.
