Intern Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UPS (Alpharetta, GA) in November 2016.

Interview

A club that I was in presented me with the opportunity to send my resume in for the UPS internship so I did and the club leaders sent my resume along to UPS. About a week later I got a phone call from a Talent Acquisition Specialist that was basically a screening. She asked me what I would like to highlight on my resume and talked to me about my resume. Then about a month later (!) someone from HR set up a phone interview with me and talked to me about my strengths and what I like to do and what languages I'm familiar with. He asked a lot of questions like "are you familiar with this ??" I think he was just getting a feel for what would be the best position I would fit within the different departments. He said he would send my resume along to even higher hiring managers. Three days later I had another interview with a person in charge of the department I would intern for - it was supposed to be with two people but one was busy. She asked me to talk about myself and my history with coding, how good I am at self learning, languages I knew - which one I though I was best at. She asked a lot about previous projects I'd done and what I wanted to do the most. The same day I got an offer for the internship. All in all, they were all very nice people and easy to talk to. No hard questions, they just want to know about your background to see if you're the right fit.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UPS (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Straightforward and easy, nothing too difficult at all; questions were based on experience. I submitted the app and was emailed by a recruiter to schedule an interview, I went to the in-person interview and met with 2 hiring managers. I was emailed back a week later to schedule another interview with a higher-level manager. After that, the original recruiter called me about a week later offering me the position.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at UPS.

    Interview

    They will ask you many of the typical questions: strengths and weaknesses, why do you like UPS, what would you do during a difficult situation with a complicated person, etc...

    Interview Questions

    • They will ask you non-behavioral questions, things that you would learn in class. For instance: if you are marketing how would you go about calculating the prize of this item? If you are IT they will ask you to explain how to do a specific thing within the programs they are looking for. If you are Finance, they will ask you how to calculate specific $ values. So just be prepared to answer questions you would typically see in one of your classes.   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at UPS in January 2016.

    Interview

    I had recently completed an internship in the same field just before applying to UPS as a soon-to-be graduate. I do believe I flubbed one question, but answered it to the best of my ability considering it was out of my undergraduate studies. It was an hour-long interview that I felt went very well. I sent a writing sample to the interviewer, and I felt as if I performed admirably. I received a courteous response to my sample email, and that was the end of communications. I feel like if a potential employer is going to devote the effort/time to interview with your company in-person, the minimum effort on the company's part is to send a "thanks but no thanks" offer via phone or email. It's kind of bad manners to not even send a notice.
