    Package Delivery Driver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redmond, WA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS (Redmond, WA (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. At the end of the online application I was given two time slots to choose from for a on-site interview. I applied on a Monday and the interview was on Thursday of the same week. At the interview there was three other guys. Someone from HR greeted us and took us on a tour of the facility. Showed us a full truck getting ready to leave. Even let us check out the computer program with a routes information on it. Then we went up to the breakroom. It was there she laid out exactly what to expect in the process. This included starting pay, a brief overview of benefits, and the onboarding process. The basic road map is as follows:
    - Apply Online
    - Interview(tour and then 1 on 1's) Wait for a phone call if you made it through the first steps.
    -Driving test(to see if you can handle driving their manual transmission trucks)
    - DoT Physical/Background Check
    -40 hours of training (She said there's lots of videos and study guides to learn)
    -30 day probationary period(Where you go out with a supervisor everyday until you can run a route by yourself)
        This is where she says she looses the most people. In this location(Redmond,WA there's only four training routes. Sometimes there's a wait list for said routes. Could be a few days or a month. This downtime is unpaid.

    It definitely seemed from the HR lady and in talking with other guys that are drivers that this 30 day probation is tough. But if you make it through and they feel good about your performance you are then officially a employee. and they let you loose on a route of your own, by yourself.

    Driver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fredericksburg, VA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS (Fredericksburg, VA (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    There were 10 candidates scheduled at the same time for my site tour and 1 on 1 interviews. The job posting was listed as full-time driver. Upon arriving at the site, the HR representative came out and explained to the group that they were only hiring for coverage drivers, we wouldn't receive benefits, and we would be laid-off in 3 months time. After that she said we'd have the option to apply for a part-time package handler position which only guaranteed about 15 hours a week. She asked who would like to remove their name from the list and all 10 candidates removed names. We all walked out to the parking lot and left. While leaving, the HR representative apologized and continued to tell us how great a company UPS was and that they really needed drivers...

You will be given a run down of all the benefits and opportunities available, then taken to each station and given an brief explanation of the job function while standing in the hottest part of the location. This is to make sure you want this job.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPS in August 2017.

    Interview

    They sit you in a room with other people looking for the same position. The hiring manager walks the group around the facility and shows what a typical day looks like. Then the hiring manager interviews people one-on-one, based on who arrived first. DO NOT waste you time applying if you cant work JUST morning (3:30 AM - 8:30 AM), JUST day (11:00 AM - 4:00 PM), or JUST night (5:00 PM - 10:00 PM) shifts as this job does not have much of a flexible schedule.
