    Marketing Management Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Having worked as a contractor w/ UPS for a couple of year-long engagements, I know the corp HQ mktg people and the Alpharetta SCS teams well. In spite of my "inside track" with proven skills and solid recommendations from supervisors and peers, I was treated very heavy-handed indeed in more than one interview undertaken for a regular, mid-management level position. I conclude that HR is hidebound in old school process. However pleasant and human my interviews with hiring managers went, I was eventually handed off to Torquemada, not even in the reporting structure for the target role, who grilled me as if I were a suspect in an investigation. After applying for several mid-mgr roles over time, even those that a UPS recruiter initially brought to my attention (!), I never, once, heard any feedback. No emails, no phone calls, no texts. This after hours of interviews and even a half-day of tests, which cost me a lot of $ due to No Work, No Pay. Simply unprofessional, heavy-handed, rude and inexcusable ways to treat any job candidate. Shame on you UPS HR.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UPS Supply Chain Solutions.

    Interview

    Administrator. The interview consisted of a call to visit the office and then a 30 minute talk regarding my experience and questions regarding the position.

    Afterwards, there were a few phone calls with HR which tended to be rather spaced out. They DO call past employers so do not "fluff" the resume too much.

    Finally, you get another call with the offer, and you pick your start date.

    Negotiation

    No.

    Backorder Clerk Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UPS Supply Chain Solutions (Swedesboro, NJ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was super easy. The two hiring managers were asking questions to determine your interest level and and to determine if you would be a temporary employee or a fixture. They looked for reasons to hire rather than reasons not to hire. There were no tough questions. This was the easiest job interview I've ever had, and I presume it was because they were looking for people to launch the building.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS Supply Chain Solutions (Alpharetta, GA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I had two interviews - One, by telephone, followed by an assessment test. I was then invited in to a 3-person panel interview. This interview was with the regional executive, the hiring manager and the HR professional.

    I was asked to give a brief background sketch. Next, each person followed a written set of questions, as well as one role-play situation. This was followed by an opportunity to discuss any questions I had. This led into a discussion about local management philosophy and specific job expectations. This also included questions about the resources available to help excel in the position and the role that regional management played in the support of the local organization.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions were situation based. The most difficult were surrounding handling customer dissatisfaction and subsequent account growth.   Answer Question

    Test Repair Operator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UPS Supply Chain Solutions (Mira Loma, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    For the interview process you are originally contacted by an HR representative online to schedule a date for the interview. At the interview, you are interviewed by a technical and an HR representative. They ask you general personality questions such as your strengths, weaknesses, skills, what type of person do you think a great employee is and scenario questions. They then get a little technical and ask you about what operating systems you have used and what hardware interfaces you have used. Overall I felt my experience was good but I think I may have been overqualified for the job as the job asks for a high school diploma and I have a degree. This is an entry level technician job.
