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?!?

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.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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 Question – There were no difficult questions. Answer Question
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.

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at UPS.
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.
