Application

I applied online – interviewed at UPS.

Interview

It started with a room of upwards of 15-20 people or so, to my surprise. The HR manager came in and began talking about the job saying it was the most difficult job you would ever have in your life. That he didn't care if "you were in construction" or you were "in the military", that this would be harder. He also went on about how with the pay during the probationary period and the union dues, you would barely make even all that much money. The interview ended with him saying that after all of that, if you were still interested, to call him the next night. I called and I was only 1 of 3 that got hired. I'm not sure if he effectively scared the others off or they just weren't selected.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at UPS in September 2012.

    Interview

    The first response you will receive after completing all of the questionnaires on the ups website will be a phone call from an HR rep. You will be asked to go in for the first interview, it's not an interview, it's a information seminar where you will be explained to what you are/ will be doing. After the seminar they will speak to you interview style, but the questions are ones you have already answered on the website. When you pass, and you will, they will call you to go in for training which lasts one week. Paid training
