    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS (Farmingdale, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    So I filled out the application for the 6-10:30 shift and put my availability as well as school hours. On Tuesdays I have class from 5-8:30 and got approved for the interview! So basically, I could work any day for that shift except Tuesdays. It was nice to see that the company helps with tuition and is student friendly. The interview was for 7:30 AM so I got there a little early. At 7:15, I walked into the guard office and said I was there for the interview. The guard told me to come back 5 minutes before the interview, so I did to no prevail. She told me to wait until other people showed up, so another 15 minutes later, we began to walk into the warehouse. The second we walk in, a worker goes up to the HR representative and firmly tells her that workers need to wear gloves, because he's sick of employees hurting there hands and she shrugged it off. So I began to wonder if maybe this interview wasn't as I had thought. Us three applicants walk into a room and the interviewer said,"so everyone is here for the 4 to 9 AM shift?" I told her I was for the 6-10:30 PM and she questioned why I was even at the interview. I told her I had school that day, so I wasn't able to go at that time. Why I was even questioned why I was at the interview when that time was presented to me confused me. She called the 6-10:30 supervisor to tell him that I couldn't work that one day, or would have to do another shift, either midnight to 4 AM or 4-9 AM. He started yelling,"NO. NO" and some other mumbo jumbo that I couldn't hear, as we were all sitting at the other end of the table, practically across the room. She said they don't really even need a 6-10, so why the application was available in the first place boggled me even more. So she told me I could leave or consider working one of the other two shifts, as long as my schedule as a student didn't interfere with them. So at that point, I decided to leave the interview. How a company that is supposedly student friendly could have "higher-ups" so rude and not flexible leaves me in awe. I have never had an interview experience like that.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS (Bryan, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    There were two parts, a group part where they talk to all the potentials together and hand out a form to fill out, and the second part where they speak to you individually.

    Two hours past my appointment time, the interviewer came out and addressed us as a group first, describing the jobs we were applying for, the pay, how the shifts work, etc. It took maybe ten minutes.

    Then we were individually called in for the interview. I was called in last, which took an extra 30-45 minutes. The actual interview was about five minutes.

    Even though the UPS website said to expect a tour, and for it to take up to 90 minutes, there was none.

    Super quick and easy. Did a tour of the facility and afterwards you go meet with someone in hr and they offer you a job. I think they will hire just about anyone as a package handler as long as you can clean yourself up for a day.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS (Forest Park, GA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    For starters, the person that gave me the tour seemed very rude and to honest upfront, if you didn't feel comfortable working hard then this wasn't the job for you which is fine. But she in fact mentioned it several times throughout the tour process in which I thought was a little over abrasive. I think most of everyone that applied for the job knew the challenges they would face when it came to the work ethic. But what really had me on edge is as we were getting the tour an employee shouted out "FRESH MEAT" keep in mind it was different races, ages, and genders in attendance. I felt very awkward at that point because I started to question myself is this really the type of company I want to start at the bottom with that tolerates this type of behavior? Especially, if I was obligated to work a full year part time and be evaluated by the same employees in order to get raises. I don't care if it was in a joking manner, I for one take those types of slurs very seriously as a form of harassment, or even hazing, and not to mention the women standing across from me that applied looked very uncomfortable as well telling from her body language. Needless to say I continued with the interview and as I'm walking through the warehouse the employees were taking their breaks. I even felt uncomfortable then when the employees would form groups and as we were walking by talking about each one of us. It was a very disappointing experience for me so I ended up leaving along with two or three others. I don't know if it was just that day but this day for me was horrible.

    First we went on a tour of the package facility which was alright. Then there was a short 10 minute, individual interview with someone who works at UPS. They were very honest that during the holiday season, you have to work extra long hours.
