    Interview

    UPS promotes from within. I expressed interest in management as a driver and was promoted from this position to full time management. The interview was conducted by the District IE Manager who rode on car with me for a full day to get to know me and ask a lot of questions. I also had to take an aptitude type test to measure my compatibility with UPS management.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at UPS.

    Interview

    I was contacted within a couple weeks. I met them at a job fair, so it's likely they had a lot of applicants to process. I was brought in for an in person interview where I was asked pretty typical questions. There was also a basic skills test with very easy math and problem solving as well as an aptitude test. Overall, not too bad. As long as you've done a few interviews before and have some decent experience or extra curricular activities you should be fine. Have examples of you problem solving, meeting goals, mediating confrontation, and leading. The aptitude looks for consistency most of all, you can choose what you will, but it has to be dead consistent.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a goal you met and how you achieved it.
      Tell me about a time you had a disagreement with a coworker and how you overcame that challenge.  
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None whatsoever, at the intern level, they have a set package. Time off and personal days are at the discretion of your manager and supervisor which could be good or bad.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UPS (Milwaukee, WI) in May 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was very straight forward. Mine happened over the phone. Both an engineering manager and a H.R. manager were in the interview with myself. They asked the regular questions, such as "tell me about yourself." They were very pleasant and made you feel relaxed and comfortable.
