    Delivery Driver Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS (Obetz, OH) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was basically filling out a form and listening about company's requirements. Their main concern was your ability to drive a manual transmission truck safely.

    I applied on 24th, I received the email with interview schedule the next day, which was to be held on Friday morning the 27th. They wanted me to get physical and drug screening done before the interview. So I had half a day do it and it was hectic and messy.

    Interview itself took about 5 minutes followed by overview of the position, expectations, requirements, and the overall situation as far as getting hired full time/part time.

    After 30 min talk, you were given the opportunity to leave, I decided to stay and they set up training class, which was to be held next Monday. I showed up Monday morning at 8am, after 35 minute drive only to be told the class was cancelled and will be held later. Class was rescheduled 3 times, from their side. Finally after 5 weeks I started attending class (4 drivers trainees total). Class took one week to complete and I passed with excellent score.

    At the end of the class each passing student was assigned to his new center and direct manager. One person got switched to another center as driver HELPER, not a driver. One was put on hold as his center didn't have any vacancies and two of us were standing next monday. I came to work on monday and the car was packed to the gills. You couldn't open the back door without having packages falling out. So it took team of two, driver with 23 yr experience doing the route and me as trainee full 12 hours, and I think I did considerably well BUT !!! I come to work next day and they tell me someone in the center had accident yesterday and they had to be assigned a supervisor to go with him and because it was vacation season, I didn't have my supervisor anymore. So I was sent home and was told to call tomorrow. So I did call at 7am every morning for 3 weeks only to b told the same BS: "Sorry, I don't have anyone today, call back tomorrow." After 3 weeks of calling every morning at 7am, after working late shifts until 2am every night, I decided to stop and asked them to give me a call. They never called back, yet they kept posting job ads for delivery drivers.

    While almost every single person I came across at UPS was friendly and nice in general, the organization, structure and their mentality is below frozen fish. WHAT A MESS ?!? From day one they put lot of pressure on moving things fast, yet the company is dysfunctional and now I am super happy I don't work for them. Saved me lots of headaches.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UPS (Dulles, VA).

    Interview

    It was very short and easy. The questions were pretty much closed ended questions and not open ended at all really. They did not seem very organized. When you get called in, they give you an orientation with other applicants. Then you will have a one on one interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at UPS (Mount Kisco, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview started with a group discussion basically giving information on the company and to expect on the job. Then an individual interview right after - basic questions, easy, not long. You then wait to be contacted to take a driving test - must know how to use a manual shift. Truck is not the greatest, shifting not like a car.
