Easy Interview

I applied online. I interviewed at UPS.

Interview

Very easy. Got job right there and then. They really didn't ask any typical questions you usually get asked. It was them telling you want is required and you answer that you are able to do it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Know Your Worth!

    Alright, let me start out by saying I understand some people need jobs or just can't afford to decline any offers. However, let me say this: KNOW YOUR WORTH.

    Okay, next point:

    This so-called "interview" wasn't really an interview. They simply asked for two forms of identification and if you are sure this is something you would be interested in. Let you tell you this, they will glance (not read) over your resume. The person interviewing me didn't even know I had a BBA despite having my information in front of her. C'mon HR, if you're going to have someone conduct "interviews", at least make them read the darn resume.

    Next, I'm going to give you the breakdown of how much you will be "earning" if you accept this position.

    Wages: 10.20 per hour (Hodgkins, IL Facility)
    Weekly Pay Check: Paid Every Friday

    Approximate Take Home Pay:
    3.5 hours at $10.20 for 5 days is a minimum of $178.50 or $255 maximum
    (Less 18% from taxes) -$32.12
    (Less Union Dues at 7%) -$13
    Weekly payout = $133.37

    In addition to this pay, you only get access to a 401 K retirement plan and educational assistance upon employment. (up to $25K with $5,250 per year) This doesn't include one week vacation, one option week, and 3 option days as well as paid holidays. You can only get these days off including medical and dental AFTER 1 year of employment.

    So why did I apply? I needed money fast to pay bills while I search for a better job. The lady that interviewed me said that only after 40 days as a Package Handler, I could possibly advance to Part Time Supervisor (same tasks and hours, but pay just marginally better), and then I could advance to management or hr after 40 or more days as PT supervisor. So advancement is possible.

    After the interview, you'll be scheduled to attend a tour of the facility, at which all of your information and i9 must be completed and submitted.

    It seems as if the people conducting the interviews don't really care out the interviewee's circumstances, and are trying to meet or exceed their quotas to earn more money. They give you garbage hours so you aren't eligible for benefits and they can pay you less than what competitors or other industries do. All for the sake of preying on poor people and work them until they decide they are worth more than this. Unless you are working full time and looking for part time work, PLEASE DO NOT GIVE IN AND ACCEPT THIS POSITION UNLESS YOU HAVE NO OTHER OPTIONS AVAILABLE. Know your worth and save your time.

    Thanks for reading.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS (High Point, NC) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied and then did the tour the day after next. Didn't get picked out of the group but was told, that positions will open in the near future. Got a call a month later asking if i was still interested, I said yes, so I was scheduled for an interview for the next day. Went to the interview and was told I was late (I wasn't) and was told to come back next week. Got a call that same day telling me it was a mistake, that he thought I was apart of the new tour group and offered to reschedule the interview the next day. The actual interview was ok, basically just going over the job details.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at UPS (Durango, CO) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and scheduled an interview and tour at 6:00 pm. I was the only person who scheduled a tour that evening. First the manager gave me a tour of the warehouse and then sat down for an interview. The tour lasted 5 minutes and the interview lasted for 10 minutes. He spent most of the time explaining why the position is available, what the work environment is like, when the shifts are, and the employee expectations. He asked me about my past jobs, if I lived in or out of town, and if I'm attending college. Then he asked me if I had any questions.
