    I had my tour 6 days ago and they told me wait a week until this so called " hiring papers" come to the HR office my question is What kind of documents are they talking about? and I haven't heard from them yet should I be concerned if they never called me they made me sign a union paper and couple of other documents. Did I Really get a job at UPS ? and last but not least are they waiting for my Background check to be completed? what advise would you give me becasue I really do want to work at ups I really don't mind the hard wok and the fast pace it comes with the job. After all the documents I completed online especially the direct deposit and the tax forum. I am getting discouraged over here becasue I thought i got the job. If you would help me I would greatly appreciate it.

    They probably will not hire anyone prior to Nov 1st. I don't know when the volume levels will dictate the adding of people in your location.

    Sure if you have the number ... be polite and let them know you are eager to start and need the money and will do a great job.

    It sounds as though the background is the last item on your hiring checklist. These take time and you need to be patient.

    all i know that she told me wait a week until " the hiring papers" come to the office and i really don't know what is she talking about lol never mind, so they are probably waiting for the background check to be complete usually how long does it take ?

    The best answer is that it will take as long as it takes...even after all the 'papers' are in order, you won't start until they need you, in terms of staffing.

    I got hired in June, got trained in July, and didn't start working until August. It all just depends...not the best news, but if you've made it this far, you've got your foot in the door and hopefully it's just a matter of time.

    Good luck!
