    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at UPS.

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews in their Expo office - the first round was held by HR manager and business manager. I don't think there were a lot of questions related to the JD itself. They seemed more concerned about company culture fit. The second round was held by Business managers from related departments and also the HR manager. Interesting enough the interview was more about softskills.

    Interview

    panel interview that lasted for about an hour in a conference room with a few people sitting across from you. I do not remember much from the interview as it was a few years ago, but for the most part it was a pleasant experience, they did not go out of their way to trip you up or make you feel uncomfortable.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me to discuss my current position and explained in depth what the position required. That part took 45 minutes...I "passed" to the second round which was a link for a TIMED test...it was a mental test that stressed me out and I think they should give that test first before wasting 2-3 hours of my life...that test was ridiculous

Then she went into more how the job is but she started with all the negatives things about the job like very hard work for only 3-5 hours long... Also must be able to handle 800 boxes an hour for the job. Then she told us about the hours that we were able to pick. The shifts were sunrise 3.00 is to 9.00 or twilight 8:.00 pm to 12:00 am.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at UPS (New York, NY (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Disorganized dog-and-pony show; two-day process for me to discover it is a come-on. I applied online on a Thursday. The system gave me an appointment immediately for the following Monday at 2pm. I was one of about 25 candidates. The HR rep gave us a rundown of the job, pay, benefits, etc. Those of us still interested were told to come back for interviews the next day. We did, all for the same time, and were told the rep would be an hour late. "How do you interview everyone at once?" you might ask. You don't. So the process took HOURS. It is much like going for a civil service job--you wait, and wait, and wait, and get jerked around.

    I came to find out UPS is not really serious about hiring anybody. You need 40 working days to get on the job or they let you go (you may be scheduled and show up only to find out they don't need you and be sent home). A lot of guys are let go after 39 days. They don't make the union, they don't get on the job. UPS just uses them as non-union, temporary help while making them think they're getting a job out of it.
