UPS Package Handler Interview

UPS Package Handler
Canton, OH

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at UPS in January 2014.

Interview Details – After putting in an application you may eventually be sent an email informing you of a group interview session (NOTE: This arrived in my spam folder!) You are asked to log back into UPS and finish your application. The interview takes place at the warehouse with other candidates. After a job description you'll be called individually to answer questions about whether we can fulfill the duties and why we want to work at UPS.

HR will soon contact you via phone (possibly email) asking if you still want the position and if so to return to update the application and give you and orientation date. After signing papers at the paid-orientation you're officially a UPS employee.

There is no drug test

Difficult Interview

UPS Package Handler Interview

UPS Package Handler
Cerritos, CA

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at UPS in September 2011.

Interview Details – First of I went onto the UPS career website , I applied for the package handler it was a pretty small application at first and then then after that application they said someone was gonna review it and then I guess someone reviewed it I had to finish another application but this time was more detailed and more information and after that they gave me an appointment date ( after the first application you have to log back into the website consistently to check the status on your application because they dont send an e mail or call to let you know that yoir first application has been reviewed) when I got my appointment time they told me to dress business casual (in other places they specificly ask you to come in casual) all this has been a 3 day span, once I went to the appointment it was a group of around 20ish people, we waited outside to be called inside we all had to sign in since we didnt have id/pass to pass the security outside in the guard shacks, once inside a Human resources representative gave us a quick review of the job (package handler) and she seriously made it seem like the worst job ever , in fact 3 people walked out and said it wasnt for them. Once everhthing was over she gave us a paper to write down our basic info (name adress phone number) and then the shift we wanted to work, we all turned in the sheet and she took them and left. she then came back and called us up 1 by 1, and when it was my turn I saw that every time I said I did something that included endurance or muscular activity she wrote it down on my paper, which in my case I told her I did wrestling, swimming, water polo and construction on the side with a neighbor. After that I got another appointment time right there and there by her. Whem I was leaving I caught up to the guy that went before me amd asked him of he got an appointment time and he said no. I came in for the next interview and kt was a regular interview 1 on 1 with the main human resources supervisor, after the interview he sent me home without any idea of my future. After 2 Weeks of nothing I got a call back telling me I had an appointment at 5am(because I choose the preload shift) told me to wear pots and comfortBle clothes I had another interview/tour the interview was 1 on 1 but the tour was 4 guys after the interview and tour I had to fill out all the employment paperwork of UPS. After that they told me to come in next Monday to start our hazmat training while we got paid and three days later after that I was already working in the pens.
