    I dont know how I came across the application process but I manages to fill out info for a full time driver and a drivers helper. Once I completed the questions I was directed to select the "schedule" tab. I did that and I was told that there were no curent interview times. So.... what do I do now? Wait? How long? I am currently in the position in my life to accept full time employment with UPS, preferably a driver.

    Does anyone have any tips on getting the interview? :happy-very:

    Welcome to bc anna. UPS almost never hires FT as a starting position and unfortunately the word most of us have heard is likely noseasonal FT this year. We still have a lot of current FT drivers laid off. Most of us start as PT or seasonal. Good luck on your search.

    That means that position is not available. You can try back again at a later date, but it's doubtful until the economy comes back.
  6. Anna,
    I have limited experience in the Ground Operation as I am in the Airline, but my advice is connect with an HR person and to follow-up with them to the point wher you are almost being a pain. If you really want a career at UPS...Simply Say So!!
    If you are lucky enough to get a seasonal position; do the best you can, don't be a suck-up (no offense-just being real), do not engage in politics (keep your head down and do the best job you can); contact the HR person and tell them how satisfied you are with the job (assuming you are); and thank everyone for the opportunity once the season is over.

    The point?
    • You're energetic & enthused
    • You're a team player (no BS or dragging your butt because others are)
    • You appreciate the opportunity (it's all about relationships)
    • You're a good worker
    I actually brought a person up from a Non-Union Hourly to a Center Manager in 6 years. She was/is THAT good. So, it's possible.

    As I said, I'm not in Ground Ops, but I have interviewed/Hired/promoted/demoted/suspended/terminated many employees. Do a good job and things will work out; just remember:

    YOU control your future. Be strategic and smart!!

    Best of luck. If you get a job, let us know

    Kind Regards,
