    looper804 Is it time to go home yet

    Doesn't sound like you got hired yet to me.A tour usually takes place before the hiring.

    I would say that the smartest thing you could do, is learn how to use the search feature here. Then, you would find your question answered again and again and again.

    Give them a call, take the tour and look for another job. You will not accrue any seniority as you are being hired during a seasonal period and come the day after CHRISTmas, you and thousands of others will be sent packing. I'm hoping that with 20yrs seniority I can bump a couple part-timers and maybe clean trailers or sort or something. Look for about 10% cuts in full time work. Oh...Wait...Maybe the socialist party will win the election and you and I can just sit on our asses and collect someone else's earnings.

    this tour/hire thing must vary by facility or building...when I was hired in lou. air 14 yrs. ago, we had to apply & pre-interview@ ky state employment office, go to a ups building near the airport for another interview, go back to this building if hired for paperwork, fingerprints, id photo, etc. then, about a week into the process, you got to see what you were in for.

    In my area the HR lady calls and interviews or the phone then you go to the building and meet her and she gives you the tour. Fill out paper work and see the building sup. Then she tells you your start date. Then you she the building sup who tells you that it's ball-busting relentless work.

    Ups isn't going to hire you without seeing you and you seeing the job. It's bad enough that 60 percent of the people they hire quit with the first 2 weeks.

    So call the hr person up to make sure they know you’re still interested. Remember the squeaky wheel get the most attention.

    I've been at UPS for 11 years now and I haven't had a tour yet!

    Mind you I did 2 months on road before I got my half a day DIAD tuition.
