What to Expect When Interviewing
The majority of applicants that interview for a position at UPS report a positive interview experience. Potential employees can expect a fairly straightforward interview process consisting of a face-to-face interview with a hiring manager, in which standard interview questions are posed. An example might include a question such as, "Describe a time a customer had a problem; how did you help resolve it?" Those applying for managerial positions may find a more rigorous interview process that may include a panel interview or a skills test. Potential employees can apply online or in person. Applicants who are offered positions may need to complete a drug test and submit to a background check.
