    Easy Interview

    Application

    Interview

    I was referred by an HR professional and received an interview within a week. I showed up to the interview and met with a supervisor. Interview was fairly easy. We talked about the history of the company and why I wanted to work for UPS. The hiring manager talked a lot about how there is opportunity to grow and how the company likes to promote from within. I was offered the job immediately after the interview. I decided to accept but a week later I was offered a position with another company and accepted that one.

    Part Time Package Handler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cerritos, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at UPS (Cerritos, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Completed online application. Afterwards about a week or two later received an automated e-mail from HR thanking me for my interest. The e-mail provided additional description about the job and if I was still interested to schedule an appointment online to attend an information session.

    At the information session there was about 20-25 people there. HR went into details about the job, shifts available, average hours worked per week (17.5 - 20), benefits which would not begin until one year of service and a starting wage of $10.15/hr. Minimum wage in CA is currently at $10/hr.

    They mentioned this was a union position and that we were REQUIRED to join. The initiation fee was $200. Rather than collect it all at once, $25 would be deducted from your first 8 checks and then a monthly dues would be collected to the equivalent of 2 times your hourly rate. Oh, and they also mentioned that if you were interested in becoming a driver that the typical wait was 7-10 years at that location.

    After the orientation they had everyone line up for individual interviews that lasted about 5 min each. They asked very basic questions. Afterwards they said they would call back if they were interested.

    I did not receive a call back which did not bother me. I thought the starting wage was ridiculously low considering this was a union position. Similar warehouse/distribution type jobs in the surrounding area start at around $12-13/hr.

    Part Time Package Handler Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at UPS (Edison, NJ) in September 2016.

    Interview

    You apply through the UPS website and they give you a time to show up for an "interview." Hopefully they give you proper directions to where you need to enter or you will be late trying to find where to go. After you get to the HR area you will see about 10-15 other people sitting and waiting, you all get to watch a video together about how great it is to work for UPS (they made it so its going to be GREAT).

    Then one at a time the HR person will bring you in and sit you down, ask you if you want to work for them and have you enter info to start your background. After this they will tell you to come back the following Friday, if your background clears you will do a few pieces of paper on that Friday and they will start you on Monday....

    Thats the entire process....

    Bait and switch, applied for full time local delivery driver got to interview and job is for part time warehouse loader 3-5 hours a day, with occasional driving only when another driver is out sick or on vacation. Warehouse workers get 10-11$/hr and drivers get 29$/hr but to become full time you have to have seniority over other employees or they will get promotion before you if they apply for the same position. I will never wastep my time with ups again.

    Can't support a family of 5 on 3-5 hours of work a day in the hopes that an opening will come up for full time and someone with more seniority doesn't apply.
