Part Time Package Handler Interview

Part Time Package Handler
Detroit, MI (US)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at UPS in May 2014.

Interview Details Applied online. After 2 weeks, I was emailed to come to a information session. First interview was a group information session about what to expect if hired. Was about 20 people there and we were called 1 by 1 for a very short interview. The interview was 4 questions asking: was I able to lift 70 pounds, how much exercise do I get, am I willing to work for 10/hour, will I be able to make it to work on time everyday. Second interview was a tour of the facility with about 4 other people. I was asked the same questions to reassure I still wanted to work there after touring the facility. Was contacted about 3 weeks later to start.

Part Time Package Handler Interview

Part Time Package Handler
Dallas, TX (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at UPS in February 2014.

Interview Details Fist step was a walk through of the entire building and the different areas. Interview process was very step by step and simple. They called me and scheduled an interview. One on one interview was short and sweet. They called and set up my orientation from that point. Overall one of the easiest hiring processes I have been through.

UPS Driver Interview

UPS Driver
Las Vegas, NV (US)

I applied through another source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at UPS in September 2010.

Interview Details This is a very competetive job opportunity. Be ontime for interview. Dress like you are going to interview not like you just got off work.
If you dont have previous experience you better have your thinking cap on. Ready to answer "Why you" for this job. Women dont show up all dolled up. They provide uniforms. Your nails and lipstick wont last a day at work. That wont help you at all. That will only put more doubt in there minds. They are looking for hard working, organized employees that know the City very well. There were 4 interviews
 (When I met with hiring Manager I had to sell myself on how my past experience was relevant to job opp. I was seeking. I was a single Mom with 3 children to support. I only had sales experience.)
 If you are not a good driver to begin with...,pass on this. You are driving a big vehicle in a big city.
Best time to get into this company is Christmas season. They will say its a temporary position. Stay dedicated ...work hard and pay attention to your surroundings. They do time you on how long it takes you to deliver your packages. So being timely and organized is a plus. Being able to work well under pressure is what they are looking for.
No free passes... if you wreck your vehicle in anyway your are done. If you can make it through the busiest season, they will hire a few great drivers permanently. Like I said not for everyone but great opportunity for the right fit.

Interview Question – Why should I give you the job when there are so many drivers from Frito Lay, Hostess ect. waiting for this opportunity?   View Answer
