Part Time Operations Supervisor Interview

Part Time Operations Supervisor
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed 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?!?

Interview Question – Nothing really, all pretty ad hoc and pretty typical.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Hourly wage was already stated.

Delivery Driver Interview

Delivery Driver
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at UPS in September 2013.

Interview Details – Typical questions...Why do you want to work here, The work enviorment can be very demanding and difficult at times during inclement weather etcc. Very easy laid back interview. So professional, probably one of the best interviews I've ever had. The interviewer wasn't uptight, didn't ask any personal questions. Asked about previous work experience in only the related field.

Interview Question – Explain how you succeeded and your ability to problem solve an issue where you were not at fault...And with all the background in customer service and delivering why are you applying for this poition   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Family comes first and it was more of a schedule conflict.

Part Time Package Handler Interview

Part Time Package Handler
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at UPS in July 2010.

Interview Details – They take you on a tour to show you how physical the job can be then they do one on one interviews with everyone. Basically you want to tell them that you would like to work there forever and that you love physical labor (do NOT say you only want to work there for a couple of years or so or that you have and physical injuries). The Swan Island hub does not drug test and there are many people there who have criminal history's. I have heard that some UPS Hubs will drug test.
