    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at UPS.

    Interview Details

    When I was hired into the union, they usually start everyone off with a big tour group of the building and the work floor. Then they educated us on all of the benefits and expectations of the job. After that is was just a one on one interview with a part time HR supervisor. Important key words are safety, power-zone, anything about lifting with your legs, oh and did I say safety?!?

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UPS.

    Interview Details

    Came in for a building tour and then one interview. Focus of interview was concerning reliable transportation and whether I could commit to at least one full year. This was for a package handler. Got the job which basically anyone will that's not a total fool and then put in letter for supervision 3 months later. Took a simple test on a computer where you rated yourself and responded to scenarios via multiple choice. Anyone with a brain will pass because you just rate yourself the highest and choose the obvious correct answer. There was no interview after that and was promoted 2 weeks later.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. For a PT job, the compensation and benefits are very good and all new PT sups get higher stRting salaries than past sups. UPS adjusts for inflation for starting salary but screws existing sups out of raises and gives them jokes of raises. It's not surprising if a new PT sup earns more than one that has been there for 3 years.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at UPS in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    typically hire from within. There is a 1-2 week class available for new supervisors in which general management guidelines are taught. There is also a 100 question exam which dictates whether or not one is management material; regardless of previous performance. Overall, the management class was useful since the typical method is to throw new supervisors into the operation, and they learn as they go.

    Negotiation Details
    There was not much room for negotiation; it was pretty much take it or leave it.

    I applied online. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at UPS in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    Essentially you are hired in as an hourly employee. From there on you are watched and evaluated based on your performance. I suggest that if you have a dream to become management, let that be known immediately to your supervisors and or HR. The process can be lengthy and time consuming. Put your best foot forward and try to learn all you can.

    Interview Details

    This is the first part of the old "hire from within" system. PT Operations Supervisors are pulled from the hourly operaions staff. For young hourly workers the temptation of a higher base rate needs to meet the reality that you will become part of the management team and will be looked at differently from your now former peers. The increase in salary does not offset the insurance cost you now will be paying for.
