Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UPS (Chantilly, VA) in August 2014.

Interview

Interviews are scheduled online right after you complete the application process. Interview process is very straightforward, detailed information about the job and job requirements. After the initial presentation the HR people bring you in 1 on 1 for the interview, they'll take your driving transcript and make a copy of your SS and Drivers License. After that the process is background checks which generally take 2 weeks, after the checks and driving records are in if they want to offer a job they'll contact you to setup a DOT physical and a driving test.

Never heard back, online job status does NOT update.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at UPS (San Angelo, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    A quick interview process. HR called and asked to schedule an interview for the next day. Interviewed with several other candidates. Our group walked around the facility and learned about where the packages were sorted and where the trucks were loaded. We also learned about the logistics of how the packages were loaded onto the trucks in preparation for delivery.

    The interview process was a complete joke and waste of time. The job add was for a delivery driver but they were not hiring for that position. It was a complete lie and waste of anyones time.

    Interview

    Interview and hiring process takes time. UPS offers a 30 work day probation period before completing the hiring process for warehouse positions.
    For Package Drivers jobs, there is a 40 hour or 6 day training before getting behind a vehicle. After in-class training, a 29 working day on road with supervisor begins. In-class training and on-road is a probationary period.
    If either are passed, you will become a employee with the UPS company.

    Interview

    very quick and concise. they told me no lies. i was expecting a group interview. to my surprise they were very serious about hiring. i had read reviews that said it was a gimmick and they would give you the run around but no, they got right to business. the hardest part was the road test if you've never driven a box truck its a little nerve rattling. other that that its cool

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at UPS (Pittsburgh, PA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    As described by many others the process started with the HR representative doing a quick show and tell regarding what the job entails, the starting rate of pay and the offseason demotion to package handler. Basically we were told from July through December you would be a driver covering vacations and working during the busy holiday season. You would work 8-10 hours a day M-F at a starting rate of $18.75. During the offseason you would revert to being a package handler making $10.10 an hour working part time 5PM-9PM. There would be opportunities to drive during this time as well such as off season vacation coverage and Saturday pickup routes where you could make your driving rate of $18.75. Full benefit eligibility would be available after one year. This schedule is what would be expected up until a full time driving position becomes available...which could be years.

    Negotiation

    It didn't seem like negotiating was part of the process.
