    It's been one week since my job interview for package handler and I haven't received a phone call yet. Is it normal to take this long to get a call or does it mean I didn't get the job?

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    They may be in the process of doing a background check. I would place a follow-up call or send a follow-up e-mail on Monday.

    I would consider that a gift from God or some family spirit saving you from future hell. I'd even change my phone number :).

    It's such a shame when young people do not know how to google search a forum.

    Im in the same boat i interviewed about a week ago as well. The HR is on vacation now and she told the group when she comes back on the 23. She will call. The interview went ok but she had a poker face but i made her laugh for the most part. I keep checking my status online and it went from active to onfile soon after the interview. I dont know should i wait or move on. From what im hearing it being onfile isnt good....

    You know that there are worse things that could happen.

    You could get a call to come in.

    We have a major job shortage here

    I had 2 interviews on Wednesday.
    First 1, I had a short interview and was hired.

    Then I went to Capital Ex for another interview.
    There was no interview ! I even took the time to print out my resume, and they didn't want to see it !

    They simply made me fill out my info and SS # etc, so when I was half way done with that, I asked her when will I hear back if I'm hired or not.
    She said you won't - you're hired as soon as you done this paperwork !

    Good times are back ! :)

    I ended up working from 10am - 11:30 pm yesterday.
    I ended up with a $2.00 surplus on my $15.000 float.
    Got told I did good ! :)

    UPS hires same day or next day here, too.
    That's how I was hired - got call back almost as soon as I got home from the interview !
