    It has been super basic and simple. Interview is kind of a mix of a walkthrough of the building and then shadowing a person doing what you would be doing. A couple of basic questions followed.

    Part Time Package Handler Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS in July 2020.

    Interview

    Horrible. Maybe the most unprofessional I've experienced. The email said have two forms of ID ready. Then the Zoom meeting had 20 something people in it. What? And the host dropped twice for several minutes at a time. I applied for a specific time range as listed on the posting. Then it was said they will start several hours before the listed hours. I can't do earlier than the posted hours so this was a complete waste of time. Also, the host stated this is going to be full time hours for the foreseeable future, likely til 2021 but will part-time benefits then laughed about it. I applied for a part time job and then told this will be full-time but with no benefits and you'll still need to pay union fees.

    If you have NOTHING else going on, and I mean NOTHING else then go for it. I'm looking for a second job so I can't start three hours earlier than the posting listed. Posting stated 5:30 pm, I get off work about 4:30 pm. Then you say need to come in at 1-2 pm. Why are you misleading people? The pay for this job isn't good especially after the union fees. Considering how physically demanding it is, better off seeking a retail job because the extra dollar or two isn't worth it after the demand and fees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UPS.

    Interview

    You either have to know someone or have to start as a package handled to get the interview, but when you do, it's pretty straight forward. Make sure you let them know that you're a leader and that you know basic statistics because you're going to have to learn how to calculate your shipping frequency.

    Easy and very comfortable. I was at first nervous about being interviewed by a panel although it turned out great. The panel was very professional and made me feel less nervous throughout the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS (Chapel Hill, NC (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I was sent an unprofessional and curt email without any information with my name spelled incorrectly and with numerous grammatical and spelling errors. the interview was never scheduled, due to lack of organization and poor communication on her end. I responded in a timely and professional manner and I had to continue to reach out to see if she had any intention to scheduled one. I was very disappointed in the entire process and reached out to the corporate office and would be happy to share the emails with them.

    Digital Print Specialist Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UPS (Albuquerque, NM (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly typical. It was actually a much better process than most. What ruined the experience was the really insulting lowball wage they offered. This is a specialist job (literally in the title) and they could only offer me $10/hr! I looked at the regular retail associate job offering (which was work they expected me to help around the office with in addition to my digital printwork), and they offer $10/hr as a starting salary to those workers. Best of all, the interviewer mentioned that they have trouble keeping talent in the specialist position. It might have something to do with asking additional work from your specialist while paying them the same wage as your regular untrained employees. I was highly qualified for this position (to the point where they started the interview as a formality more than anything), yet they refused to negotiate a fair wage. $10 was their first and only offer. I already have a job that pays much more than this job on hourly salary alone. I would have been fine with a lateral move (which would have been a net paycut because they don't do bonuses at this company) because this is closer to my career choice, but I can't just slash my monthly budget to ribbons. I don't know how this company expects to hire professionals if they're not going to pay them more than their unskilled laborers.
