    Hey guys, so I just went on a tour/interview in brooklyn, New York on thursday and I feel it went well and the only thing I regret was wearing a tie considering I was the only one wearing one. So a day after the interview I go online to check the status of my application and it has changed since the interview. It now says "On File and my status has changed to "PRELOADER". Can anyone tell me what's the significance of this change in my application? It has been 3 days now and no call or email from them, please help.

    It sounds like since you wore a tie you got the job! The Preload works early in the morning loading packages into the delivery trucks before the drivers report to work. Your shift will run about four hours, our Preload in my area works from about 3:45 to 8:30 AM.

    Don't be embarrassed that you wore a tie. It shows you wanted the job bad enough. I say good for you & best of luck in your new endeavor

    Yes, that tie might seem like overkill to you Josh, but it was an indication to the interviewer that you were willing to go the extra distance to be presentable. That also might indicate to the interviewer that you will be willing to try to show up on time if at all, amongst other things.

    Smart move, Josh.

    When do you think I can expect a call or email from ups?

    If you don't hear anything, send HR an email & try calling as well. They want hungry wolves, you sound like one of em

    I was offered a 2nd interview right away after the 1st. Then I got offered the job 2 hours after the 2nd interview through email.

    So are you saying I did not get the job?

    I know at my center new-hire preloaders tend to start Wednesday mornings. About 1/2 way through the shift, so hopefully you'll get a call tomorrow morning or very early afternoon telling you to report at 430-515 AM or so, and a contact name probably the Preload Supervisor. Good luck to you.

    I received no call today, what should I do? I remember the interviewer telling the group during the tour that we should not make an attempt to call them after the interview. I don't understand I thought I had the job for sure when I saw "PRELOADER" next to my application status after the interview. Please help.

    Wait a week and then give H.R. a call. Let them know how much you want the job! Good luck!

    If they made a point to say not to call, don't. Patience young jedi. At least for this week.

    I just want to say thank you to all who posted in response to me, you have all been very helpful. Once again thank you and I can't wait to become an official upser.

    How long do they usually take to hire you after the interview?

    Wouldn't he be a Padawan at this point? Has his Midi-chlorian levels been tested? Are we throwing out references to the Phantom Menace?

    Is this really a sign that they hired me?

    Usually if they are interested in hiring you they will call you for a second interview.

    The tie look trumps the gangsta look every time!
