    So I was finally able to fill out an app for my area; after it was complete, it said that the last step was to set up an appointment. Subsequently it stated, no appointments are available. Is there anything I can do now?

    Yes. Find out where that location is. Then you need to go there. This is not an uncommon problem. The website needs someone (usually HR) to schedule those appointment times in advance. If they do not do this it does not necessarily mean they are not looking for candidates, it may mean they have neglected to set up the appointment slots.

    Drew, you know as well as I that he does not have the secret phone number to eternal happiness at UPS. If they gave it to everyone we would no longer enjoy the perks of having it.

    Haha, that's right. I'll have to head on up there.

    It looks like the only time they are open for customers is between 3 and 6 PM. Would I have to get there during that 3 hr. window?

    No--I would wait until just after the drivers have left the bldg and go to the employee entrance and ask to speak to a supervisor.

    Forgive my ignorance; when would the ideal time for that be?

    We start at 9:15 in my center but I think most centers are on the road by 9 so I would say between 9:15 and 9:30.

    Thanks for the help, UpstateNYUPSer. Unfortunately my current job's hours would make that difficult. Would any time in the evening, even if not ideal, still work?

    Not to sound rude, but do you want this job or not? If you do I'm sure you will figure it out.

    No offense taken; you're right. I'll work something out. Thanks again for your help.

    If you want the job go on your lunch hour you could go at night it just wouldn't be as successful. Also when I put in my app there were no appointments but a week later I got an e-mail telling me that UPS was hiring and to go online and set up an appointment so that might happen but I would find a way to get down there and talk to someone. If there is one thing I have learned about UPS is that you have to be PERSISTENT!

    Don't take off work for this though. You can think of something smarter. It will take more work, but it won't cost you time at work.

    Find the facility you applied for. See if they have a preload. Check out the building at 6AM on a Tuesday (for example). I know that sounds "inconvenient" but at least you won't have to miss work.

    This is just one option, figure something out that will give you an opportunity to gain with out taking a lose. People always say times are tight, but they really are right now.

    Persistance, persistance, persistance. I DID get an appointment scheduled when I first applied.... but if it were only that easy.

    Scour for a number to call, show up in person, maybe twice a day if you have to.

    I began this thread a couple of weeks ago; all of your advice paid off, especially going out to the center and pestering people. Watched videos tonight; start tomorrow!
