Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UPS (Columbus, OH) in May 2016.

Interview

I was refer by my friend. Then I apply online. One month after, I was contacted for a phone interview. The phone interview went well, it was easy just behavior question to see if you can sell, and could be a team leader. Then I was email and assessment test, who took me about 2 hours to complete. The test just want to make sure you are a leader and you will be good with sale. Then the next I was told I pass the test. 2 weeks later receive a phone call to be schedule for a panel interview in the next two weeks. When for the panel interview, 3 people director of sale, training manger and human resources. Each one asking behavior question then after you have to play a role as a sale man. Pretending to sale a product and the training manager is the customer. Tried it couple of times but after they told me I will not be moving on. Not ready yet. Too young, need more experience.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UPS (Boston, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very in depth, wanting to know more about you, your personality and whether you fit into the role. Wanted to know what you bring to the table, but also how you handle everyday problems. Process was rather quick, phone interview followed by one on one and then a follow up with the director.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UPS (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me to discuss my current position and explained in depth what the position required. That part took 45 minutes...I "passed" to the second round which was a link for a TIMED test...it was a mental test that stressed me out and I think they should give that test first before wasting 2-3 hours of my life...that test was ridiculous

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UPS (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Detailed, test included on reasoning. Very structured environment. 3 interviews. Two in the phone and one face to face with a panel role playing. They hire within a lot and i was coming from the outside with a ton of experience. They will likely hire someone less qualified if they already work there.

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS (Lenexa, KS) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Total process took a couple weeks. I applied online through upsjobs.com. I received a phone interview and then asked to take a Personality/Sales Test. Once I passed that, had a panel interview in front of the Director of Sales and an HR Rep. The panel interview was the most intense part. They ask pretty direct questions and then give you a scenario to sell to them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at UPS in June 2013.

    Interview

    Applicants vying for manual labor jobs like driver helper or package handler should dress business-casual for an interview with UPS. Due to the nature of the job, candidates who wear overly formal attire to the job interview may not necessarily improve chances of hire. Show enthusiasm and interest in UPS operations during the tour of the building, and ask questions if given the opportunity. During group meetings, hiring personnel typically take a few minutes to outline job duties and company expectations before asking candidates a few questions one-on-one. Common inquiries used during the UPS interview process include:

    "Are you aware of the physical demands of this job?"
    "Can you lift 70 pounds?"
    "Did you play any sports in high school or college?"
    Recruitment staff usually makes hiring decisions at the end of the meeting. Drug testing and criminal background checks remain common formalities during the entry-level hiring process.
