    IT Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview was very traditional but most of the questions were read from a sheet of paper. Nothing particularly hard or deep in the questions. Standard all around but he was very good in the part where the interviewee asks the questions. He seemed very interested in the interview and his job and was courteous throughout.

    Interview Details

    I received UPs Hiring Session E-mail last night while at work, but was unable to access the link on my Mobile Device and was unable to access a PC until I returned home. Upon arriving home, I expeditiously attempted to sign up online for the session, but was unable. So, I immediately notified Director HR Customer Services of this leaving them a voicemail. This morning I contacted the other H.R. phone # listed on the E-mail for the Service Center. They happily offered to fix the problem, but noticed the seats were full. They advised me to contact Director HR Customer Services and explain what happened and if there was a way to get into the session OR if they would open another session. I left two voicemails: one on office and one on cell phones.
    Within 24hrs the problem was rectified. Now awaiting the hiring session...
