    Could someone inform me as to what I should wear to a tour/interview for a package handler? I read something on the ups website about closed toed shoes and I believe jeans, but I am unable to find that now. What type of shirt? I get the point it's not a suit and tie kind of a thing, but should I just dress casually like I do everyday, or what? Thanks

    I always say shirt tie slacks, appearance is perception if you take the time to prepare yourself, people take notice
    But yea basics would be good looking jeans and a nice looking button down and closed toed shoes (try not to wear tennies)

    Guys, dockers, dress shoes, and a nice shirt. Girls a nice pair of slacks, dress shoes, (not spikes,) flats, and a nice blouse. Easy on the make up, and jewelry. And easy on the cologne for both.
    And leave your cell phone in car, and be on time. Be early.

    LOL Tooner, that is good advice for the women. We had a woman show up last peak for a road test, wearing high heels. Her 1st clue should have been the gravel parking lot. She didn't come to work for us.

    ^ HAHAHA I was coming in here to say "Search - Package Handler"

    I tagged my topic, and that pretty much has all the info these people need about the process. (Just ignore the Soy jokes ;))

    Not sure if that's a shot at me... but for the record, I posted this in the sticky, apparently the moderators decided to make it it's own thread. More attention for me. :happy-very:

    Forget the nice look approach, go in there looking like a worker. I wore my work clothes from a prior job, rugged worn jeans, steel-toe boots with miles on them, and a plain black tee. They loved it. I'd rather give the impression that I'm there to work as apposed to trying to impress them. And yes, be early.

    c'mon, "condsidering" isn't looking fora job in management. Ya'll are sending him/her for a job at an office complex.

    C--just go with casual dress. Jeans or shorts are fine. Polo or button down will work. No matter what you will undoubtedly be over-dresses compared to 75% of the workface already in place.

    A helper last peak showed up in questionable footwear, some of those 2 inch platform/high heel hooker boots. Hey they had sturdy leather uppers, knee high!

    LOL. I always laugh at newbies who show up for interviews dressed like that. My attire for my interview consisted of some old black shorts with holes in them, a faded old college t-shirt, and some crappy old hiking boots. I looked like I was ready to jump in and unload a trailer right then and there! Anyways, I got the job.
