Just applied and confused

Discussion in 'Introductions and Welcomes' started by I'll handle your box, May 6, 2016.

  1. I applied to be a package handler at my local distribution center. The last step is to setup a time to meet with HR. After I did that it brought up a screen about a tour. Does this mean I have the job? Is there an interview? Should I dress nice? This is what it said.... Remember to wear casual slacks or jeans and a sturdy closed-toe shoe in order to tour our facility. Please do not bring any personal items such as cell phones, pagers, ipods, and/or any weapons i.e. pocket knife. Do not bring bookbags and purses on the tour. THESE ITEMS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE BUILDING AND YOU WILL HAVE TO RETURN THEM TO YOUR CAR BEFORE YOU CAN TOUR OR INTERVIEW! Plan on your tour of the UPS facility to last anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes and upon completion of the tour you will have the opportunity to speak with an HR representative

    The tour happens after the interview. It is pretty self explanatory. It said how to dress also.

    It is a warehouse job not an office job. Wear clean clothes that don't have obscene or derogatory sayings on them.

    FFS...what part of the application where it said dress casual did you have trouble with?
