It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview -- and preparation can make all the difference. What is the interview process like at UPS?

Any advice on striking the right note?

I have an initial "tour" of the facility before the interview for package handler. I would like to know if anybody knows what you should wear to something like this. Thanks, also I am 45 years old(but don't look it) is that going to go against me?

wear casual, but prepare to possibly get dirty. Sometimes they will let tourees load or unload to get a feel of what it feels like to do so. As far as age, if you feel that you are in pretty good shape, I cant see them not hiring you. In fact, I believe they like "older" people because they have better work ethic and are not likely to quit in two weeks.

Don't sweat it Marcus. You will do fine, although because it is summer, you will be sweating. :) It is hard to say what you will expect since I dont know what you will be doing. If it is loading or unloading, you will be trained by a supervisor. Several things to remember, Work hard, but dont kill yourself. Be on time and show up everday. This is what supervisors look for on new hires. Good Luck.

I am interviewing for an account executive position with UPS. I understand it is a 3 person panel interview and they will ask you situational questions. Can anyone give some tips on how to prepare for it?

I just had the same panel interview. Prepare by having a lot of examples about success and your ability to problem solve.

went in for an (Inside Sales Rep) ISR position. Here is how it went. Day 1-sit down face to face with HR person. Did a sales pitch role play and and typical interview stuff. Individual was so impressed I was given same day Sales Rep test on a computer. Lots of scenario driven questions. Again, after that was scored, they were still impressed and set me up right away with a 3 person panel interview next day! I really had no time to prep, but went it with an idea of what to expect. Well, I was wrong. I was unprepared somewhat for several statistical responses with having to give specific examples of "how i handled this conflict? Or how did I handle unresolved conflict?" Alot of questions like that. Like I said, I did not feel I was not ready, but now I wait to hear if I get the call back for orientation....guess we will see.

I made it through that entire process, and guess what, their very first question to me was, "With all this background, why are you applying for this job?" (Silly question, I need a job). Then again, if you look anything around 50, I guess you are sol.

So Pauline, were you hired or do you think age was an unspoken discriminating factor?

I live in Canada and had an interview for a Delivery Driver job. There were 2 men that interviewed me, it was easy. They only asked me one "personality" question. (What would you do if a customer was screaming at you cuz you were late with their package?)Other then that they just told me about the job. I ended up declining for personal reasons but I did get the job if I passed the training etc. They wanted me to stay in a hotel for a week in a different city where the training was. They would pay for the hotel and $25 a day for your food. Also I think they were going to pay for your mileage as well. I asked if I could commute back and forth to the training, but they said no. They wanted you to stay at the hotel all week by yourself so you could study in your room at night. Hope this Info helps someone. If you have any questions you can ask me. Also if you have piercings or tattoos you have to remove piercings and cover your tattoos. So in the summer if you have an arm or leg tattoo you have to wear pants and long sleeves. Also for the week long training they want you to dress business casual so you CAN'T wear jeans or running shoes. Which I think is silly as it's just training but that's their policy.

I just said that I would apologize to the customer. Then the interviewer said "well what if they didn't accept your apology and just kept screaming at you?" I then said that I would just continue apologizing and that I would try to calm the customer down. Then the interviewer AGAIN said "what if they just kept screaming." Then I said that I would contact my supervisor and let them know what was going on. The interviewer said "yes that's right you can't stand there all day and try to apologize to someone, there is only so much you can do.
