Part Time Package Handler Interview

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at UPS.

Interview Details

I went in for a group interview, was kind of awkward because everyone just had to stand in the office while the clerk desk was open and customers were coming in and out, but after being hired I realized there really isn't anywhere to conduct interviews in a lot of these locations. I was called into two interviews I believe and I was basically hired on the second one. The first one included personal interviews where you were called away from the group one by one and then usually if you are called back for another interview, you will be hired. It took a really long time from the hiring date to actually start my first day of work however.. Almost a month I beleive

Interview Questions

    It was very laid back and easy, we took a tour of the plant in a group walk through with other people looking for work. After the tour ended we were told that if the job wasn't for us we could leave with no hard feelings and no questions ask.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at UPS in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    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.

    HR department asked basic questions. It lasted for 15 minutes.the interview was at 11 pm in the evening. Very casual. She reviewed my online application. She showed me the sorters chart that needs to memorized if I chose to be a sorter.

    Interview Questions
    • Main question was, HR stated that they have been through a lot of interviews so what makes me stand out more than other candidates? Other general background questions. Did not ask for references and did not dig too deep into my background. She mainly was looking for if I have the ability to do the job.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    It was easy to get invited to the orientation and start work. As long as your background was clean and you didn't have a felony, you were accepted. If you want to get promoted quickly, apply for the MAPP process or for a Driver position as soon as your probationary period is over. Keep on pressuring them for what ever you want to do and show that you are willing to do the work. Don't show up late and go above and beyond.

    Interview Details

    Took the tour. HR did a good job scaring people away with "hard labor, early morning/late night, etc". I asked a few drivers and they said it wasn't super hard, just a little tough if not a morning person.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UPS in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    It was an easy interview. First there was a tour of the facility with the rest of the applicants and then a one on one interview. He asked very basic questions and he also discuss if I was ok with the salary that I will receive. He said it is hard work and wanted to make sure that I was willing to work hard. This is the easiest interview that I have ever had.

    Interview Details

    Were informed about the hours, the shift time, and the responsibilities the position entails. The person in charge of the orientation/interview was honest about the duties of the employees and made every effort to weed out disinterested candidates. As a group we were also shown the area of the facility in which we'd be working if hired there.
