    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at UPS (Maspeth, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    It only took me less than a week to get hired. Wish all interview processes can go like this. I filled out an application online and it me gave a list of options when I wanted to come in I chose 9:00 am. Although, the supervisor was really late and security wasn't letting us in until they the go ahead, he apologized and made up for it with a friendly run down on what we were going to be doing, the hours and what the salary was. One by one we were interviewed by one of three people. I went second and the interview was quick into the point. She asked some pretty easy questions and the interview was pretty simple and realistic. She didn't ask me anything stupid or complicated and she was pretty funny. When it was over she asked, when can I start? I said as soon as possible. She told me to fill the second part of the application which contained a W-2 form and show up tommorow at 7 am for a paid orientation. I knew was hired from there on out. The next day I went to the Orientation and they gave us a quick tour of center and took us down stairs had us read and sign a booklet of what it takes to be a Driver's helper. We also got lectures frome three drivers, a Supervisior and then had to watch a slide show about safety procedures. Then I meant my manager after selecting which area I wanted to be in. The orientation was about five hours. Then within the next day I was working.

    Part Time Package Handler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gardena, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UPS (Gardena, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Applied to the Gardena, CA facility online for Part Time package handler in early November. I got a text end of November claiming they had lots of jobs to give away and I should get down there asap. So I heads down there that Saturday on December 2nd. When I get down the facility, there's a whole host of people there waiting for their tour and interview with HR.

    They start the tour, lead past the guard point and into some sort of hangar, where they give us fliers describing the company, it's pay, ect. They have us make a circle and one of the guys that works there stands in the middle and explains to us that they're very short staffed because people have been walking off the job en masse and if we have the drive, want the hours, the work is there for us but we just have to want it. I'm thinking to myself "Hey, if they don't want the work, I'll take it no problem." After that, this very short woman who was the HR person told us to line up in single file in front of her office.

    Now here I am near the front of the line with the ability, drive and dedication, pleasantly waiting my turn. She comes back out the office after the third person, and hands us these sheets where we had to fill out our name, number, ect and what shifts we were interested in taking. So I'm finally called in to this little office and she ask me if I've ever been in trouble with the law , do I have any health problems, what hours am I available to work ect. I'm good on all that. So I answer, letting her know my complete availability and she tells me the sunrise shift is full and someone will call with confirmation on the twilight when a space is available. So I'm sitting there thinking "Didn't your guy back there just say you were severely understaffed and people were walking off the job? How did you go from understaffed to brimming in the quarter hour or so, I've been standing here?"

    Nevertheless I thanked her for her time and went home to await my phone call. Over one month later, I've been waiting and calling down there only to be told no positions available, when they've advertised a need for help with the very job I applied for at the very facility I applied at 6 times since then. Heck, they're advertising for that position on Glassdoor right at this moment, but still no call to the qualified guy supposedly on their waiting list and probably many more. I'm so done.

    My advice to interviewees is don't put your hopes on a call from here and my advice to UPS is to get a new competent HR down there because the one you got doesn't know how to run your business.
