Local Sort- Unload Interview

Local Sort- Unload

Interviewed at UPS

Interview Details I was hired on the spot because I knew a driver and he gave me a good word with the Local HR rep. There was no interview process. At the time, UPS was short handed because it was Christmas Time and they needed the help. I applied to a small center simply for the benfits and I wound up making a life of it.

Account Executive Interview

Account Executive

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at UPS in March 2012.

Interview Details You will first take a personality test to determine if you will move on to the actual interviews. You will then interview with 3 or 4 managers in a panel where they will ask you detailed questions about your work history and interactions with customers and how it would relate to sales at UPS. After that interview if you are recommended for hire, you will meet with HR and an offer will be made.

Interview Question – This was tough because I interviewed so long ago, but it would probably have to do with teamwork that lead to problem solving. No two interviews will be the same because of the panel style.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I would suggest not taking the very first offer, however, someone off the street will make more than an internal candidate.

Package Handler Interview

Package Handler

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at UPS.

Interview Details Applied Online. Received a call to come in for a tour of the facility. I arrived 10-15 minutes before the tour and one of the employees showed me and another guy around, and explained the position. It seemed as if they were trying to scare us with the amount of work/lifting required. I was told I would be called within the next two weeks for an interview.

The following week I was called in for an interview. I arrived 15 minutes before my interview time and there were four other men there for interviews. Some interviews took longer than others. When I went in, the interviewer told me she's looking at my address and a different location is closer to my house. I explained that I applied to the other position, but had not heard anything from them. She essentially told me they have a lot of applicants and I need to wait. She did not ask me any interview questions, she based her decision solely on my address. The other location is actually 5-7 minutes shorter of a commute, so I didn't understand the big deal. Furthermore, they had my address before I came in for both the tour and the interview, so they could have made that decision without me being present.

Interview Question – There wasn't any difficult or unexpected questions   Answer Question

Customer Support Representative II Interview

Customer Support Representative II
Middleburg Heights, OH (US)

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

Interview Details I applied online at the Upsjobs.com site and about a week later, I was called in for an interview. The interview was 1 on 1 with the HR rep. She followed a written format for the interview. I was called back over two weeks later with a job offer.

Interview Question – The most difficult question for me was about my weaknesses as an employee. I also had to list some of my strengths as well. Another question I was asked was why did I want to work for UPS. I suggest preparing a good answer for this question by researching the company a bit.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I was offered a full time job that I thought would be a better fit.

Inside Sales Representative Interview

Inside Sales Representative
Phoenix, AZ (US)

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

Interview Details There was a basic initial 15 minutes phone interview that consisted of typical interview questions such as "Why do you want to go into sales?" and "Explain to me a time when you dealt with an angry customer" If you are good with talking to people this should not be a problem.

Next there was an assessment that took and hour and a half or so. There was some reasoning based questions as well as some sales behavioral questions.

Lastly, was a webcam interview that lasts an hour. Most of the questions ask how you deal with customers in different settings and why do you want to work for UPS.

Interview Question – Explain a time when you dealt with an angry customer and the problem did not get resolved.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Non-negotiable.
