Seasonal Driver Helper Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at UPS in November 2014.

Interview Details

I filled out the application and as soon as I finished I was asked to set an appointment time for and interview the next day. I got to the interview and it was sort of like a group interview. We sat in this room for like 2 hours waiting to be interviewed. Then the hr FINALLY came and pulled us out by groups of ten. One by one we went inside the interview room and she asked for our email and do we have a record. If your responses were right she told you orientation is the next day and wear boots to the orientation and you have some extra paper work to fill out once you get home. Basically you got the job.

Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at UPS in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    This past Christmas (2013) was crazy in this area. They needed help badly. I didn't know you could apply as early as SEPTEMBER until someone told me that. Go ahead and do this. You fill out an app online, wait for them to call and then go to the information meeting. Then they do a background check, short interview, and you show up for an orientation. They have several times available.

    Interview Questions
    • 1) I had a gentleman constantly shipping things from another country. He refused to wrap the packages well & they kept coming slowly. I had to gently tell him to rewrap them.

      2) The whole receiving terminal shut down twice this season because of ice and snow, in this area. Consequently, many packages were late (although I was blessed that this didn't happen much in the delivery area I was in). One man was angry and wanted me to take the package back. I kindly explained why it was late and told him how sorry I was and took it back. UPS is good about those things.

      3) HEAVY LIFTING! It was apparently appropriate to ask the receiver of the package to help you. I hated doing this, but I am a woman and had a man receiving a STOVE up 3 flights of stairs. I wish they would invent or maybe I could invent something that would help get stuff like this upstairs.

      4) Security. I cannot tell you how many times idiots wondered what I was doing when I had a dolly, a UPS uniform and a truck a few yards away from me with UPS emblazoned on it! People need to check their paranoia.
        Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I am retired, too old to constantly lift boxes/packages in a warehouse. 13 years ago this would have been great but now I am just too old. I know there are kids who need the jobs and can do them.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at UPS in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. After applying you are able to choose from a list of interview dates to come in for a group interview. Once you select a date, show up and they will go over the job with your group. UPS accepts almost everybody if you pass the background check. They will inform you of the difficulty of the job and then speak to you one on one to make sure you know your training date and pant and jacket size. Training takes place and a different date which mainly goes over safety.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation because it is seasonal work, they have plenty of people to fill your shoes, and they are a union.

    Seasonal Driver Helper Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at UPS in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    This is what I learned from my experience Part I of II:

    Time: 9:00am promptly following w/ a 30 minute orientation of what is expected from you beginning the 16th of November and ending December 30th.

    Orientation: entailing you will not meet at the HR headquarters/truck parking lot; you will receive notice three hours prior to meeting at a safe environment parking lot (Target, Kohl's, Grocery Store,etc). You begin on-hands training for only 3-4 hrs/day then eventually begin working 8 hour shifts with your specific driver. (Thanksgiving) MUST BE PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY PREPARED to jump OFF and ON the truck HUSTLING every 30 seconds (literally) to deliver a MINIMUM of 300 packages per shift!

    Interview: One question asking why your interested in working for UPS. Afterwards, you hand your interviewer your SSN card or Birth Certificate and your Driver's License or State ID so they can type the needed information into the Database. (Basically, she/he is setting up how you will receive your weekly income of $9.50)

    Conclusion: The individual that interviewed you will take you to where their computers are located to fill out the remaining portion. (your W-2 Forms/Tax Information) You will your e-mail address and password so please remember ahead of time.

    Afterwards, I was notified I will receive a phone call for Part II, which is the Hands-on Training and drug test.

    P.S.: some were underdressed as if they just rolled out of bed and one individual was over dressed with a suit and tie. I would recommend business CASUAL attire.
    Women: Black or Brown dress pants, black closed toe shoes (no heels) and a nice SOLID blouse and cardigan. (white, black, navy, grey or dark purple) Very LIGHT makeup, jewelry AND perfume.
    Men: black or tan dress pants, black closed toe shoes (no need for dress shoes) and a neat SOLID colored polo and sweater. (White, Black, Brown, or Grey)

    Of course NO visible tattoos and piercings! Remember, even though it may be a seasonal opportunity to work for UPS, you have to respect the company's policy and regulation to the highest extent as if you were hired for a permanent position.
