Application

I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at UPS (Anaheim, CA) in April 2015.

TAKES 8 years to 10 years to become a drivers for UPS.

The interview started with someone from the human resources came out from the door to great us. After that she point to the job description paper and ask if everyone has read it? Then she went into more how the job is but she started with all the negatives things about the job like very hard work for only 3-5 hours long... Also must be able to handle 800 boxes an hour for the job. Then she told us about the hours that we were able to pick. The shifts were sunrise 3.00 is to 9.00 or twilight 8:.00 pm to 12:00 am. Also have to work 5 days a week. After that was all done she let us think about if we really wanted the job about 5m or so. Then we were able to talk to her one on one so she could write down some information about you.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at UPS (Anaheim, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Prior to the interview, you sit in the lobby of UPS with a bunch of other people. an HR rep comes out, thanks everyone for coming and briefly goes over what was written on the information sheet. They summarize that:
    -There's two shifts a package handler can work: Either the twilight (6pm - 12am) or sunrise (3am - 9am). They want someone who can stick to whatever shift they select.
    -if you're not going to school or have the background of a warehouse employee you're going to be at the bottom of the list with a nil chance of being hired.
    -They explain that you may not even get the full 6 hours, and that some days you might just get 3.
    -You have to be able to handle packages of all different weight and sizes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at UPS in October 2014.

    Interview

    After completing the application, I signed up for a facility tour. It was early morning (either 7 or 7:30); make sure you're on time, otherwise, you'll have to sign up for the next one. We were taken around the facility, shown the different work areas, given explanations of each job, & returned to a meeting room. The HR lady then gave more detail about the position's duties, shift, & expectations. After which, she stated that she would understand if the job wasn't what a person was looking for & if that was so, feel free to leave & any others could stay for the interview. The interview was maybe 10 min.; pretty easy too.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation.... Take it or leave it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at UPS in September 2014.

    Interview

    Honestly, they just detail the job for you and ask if you're really prepared to do it.

    The work is incredibly fast paced, especially around the holiday season, and very difficult. If you're not ready to wake up at 2 or 3 am every morning and go work out for four hours then this probably isn't for you. If you do your job correctly you will lose weight in the first week.

    They tell you all these things and just ask you repeatedly if you're really sure you want to do it during the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing is really super difficult, just be sure that you're prepared for the physical intensity of it all.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation.

    pretty quick interview process. took some time to jump through the hoops, but that was just to make sure person would come in for job after being hired. most of the hiring process was dependent on the assessment and passing a background check.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at UPS (Addison, IL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Addison August 2014, applied on line. Then immediately directed to set up an interview appointment.
    A few drop down menus to set up date and time (all very accommodating) and you are set. I set the interview up for the the following day.

    The process was all very simple.

    Interview Questions

    • Very low key office, looks like you are inside a temporary building. Surprised at the "shabbiness" of it (for lack of a better word). Didn't really get to any questions, job explained, NO guaranteed hours, at $8.50 an hour. I thanked her, apologized for wasting her time, she apologized that the the listed job is not more explicit in explaining hours and wage, I left.   Answer Question

    Okay so I first applied online and immediately after they set up an appointment (right after you fill out the application it sets up and appointment) at there main cooperation in Addison. I drove there and they told me about the job and everything I should expect. Then I finished the rest of the application there. They make copies of your two forms of Id. After that they set up a tour. I went to the tour. They show ou everything from the trucks to inside the truck and how they should be ordered and how everything has a place. After the tour I got called later that day cause the supervisor really liked me. He was like "I want her" haha so that's about it and I have orientation on Tuesday :)

    They actually told me if I didn't like something or it's to hard I can try other areas cause there's something for everyone

    No negotiating - but after 40 days you can get promoted.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at UPS (Phila, PA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    What interview? They essentially brought me in to take care of the paperwork. Part time package handlers aren't the most qualified people and UPS understands that so all they expect you to do is be able to write your name. No drug test, no trick questions. You sign up for a tour of the building and job, then at the end you sign up for a time slot to be "interviewed", then you go to the interview. From the time I signed up for the tour til I started working was about a week.

    Interview Questions

    • What's your name, why are you here, when can you start etc. Not really an interview, more filling out paperwork than anything.   Answer Question
