    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Doraville, GA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at UPS.

    Interview Details

    There was no interview. I applied online, then visited local office to check on application progress, and was scheduled for a tour. If the tour doesn't run you off you're hired on probation until management runs you off or you join the union for job security. There is also no drug test for this position so there are A LOT of weed smokers.

    Quick and efficient. Week long paid training seemed adequate enough for me. During the class the new-hire training people were very thorough as to how the sort operations run and what is expected. Safety seemed to be their #1 topic among all activities and duties that are performed while on property and on the clock. Learned more than enough to do the job right.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at UPS in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    First an online app, then meet with a group at the hub and take a warehouse tour in which they review the rest of the app process and set UPS standards. Then you come back in (next day for me) and HR asks some easy questions. Then they refer you back to the online app to do some forms such as W4 and I9, then you set up a new interview with HR and then you'll be working very soon after.

    Seasonal Driver Helper Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at UPS in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process starts out with 35-40 people crowded into a room. Very uncomfortable. The HR person tells you briefly about the position (you won't be driving but will be moving packages, duh) and then says the wage, which was $8.50/hr. That was when I lost interest. I had expected between $10-$11 with it being outside physical labor. I should have done more research so I didn't waste my time like I did. The last part I was there for was the HR woman discussing the dress code: no long hair on men, no beards or stubble (exception being mustaches which are worse in my opinion), no tattoos on the neck or face or arms below the elbow. I'm sure if you stick with it that it could be a decent job, but as someone only looking for seasonal work, it wasn't for me. I'll stick with higher paying seasonal Target work. I walked out 5 min in with about 2/3 of the group. We were all a bit incredulous on the wage level. How do you expect decent seasonal help for $8.50/hr? Especially around Orlando?

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't get that far, but basically they'll hire anyone who fits the appearance guidelines and can handle the physical aspect. I wouldn't sweat the questions.   Answer Question
