Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied through college or university - interviewed at UPS in January 2013.

Interview Details A job opportunity was posted to the school's career services website for a position at the UPS store right across from the university. An email had to be sent to the owner indicating interest. After that I got a response to set up an interview date and time to meet and the owner asked a few questions purely based on items on my resume. No other questions were asked about an particular experience I had that demonstrated a desired quality etc. A new owner had just bought the store from a man who had been disliked by much of the community, so I was asked how I could envision expanding our market.

Interview Question – In what ways could you imagine building a new reputation for this store?   Answer Question

Inside Sales Representative Interview

Inside Sales Representative

Interviewed at UPS

Interview Details It's a bit intimidating because you are taken in front of a panel of three. You will sit across the table from them while they take turns asking you scenario related questions. They will not respond but rather take notes and stay quiet. The questions are typical "Tell me how you dealt with this situation before.." So if you have relatable situations already in mind, you're good to go.

Interview Question – "Tell me a time where you were NOT able to overcome a hard situation."   Answer Question

UPS Package Handler Interview

UPS Package Handler
Canton, OH (US)

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

Interview Details After putting in an application you may eventually be sent an email informing you of a group interview session (NOTE: This arrived in my spam folder!) You are asked to log back into UPS and finish your application. The interview takes place at the warehouse with other candidates. After a job description you'll be called individually to answer questions about whether we can fulfill the duties and why we want to work at UPS.

HR will soon contact you via phone (possibly email) asking if you still want the position and if so to return to update the application and give you and orientation date. After signing papers at the paid-orientation you're officially a UPS employee.

There is no drug test

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.
