    I just got a general e-mail telling me to be at an interview session for the seasonal package delivery driver position tomorrow.Can anybody please tell me what the expected dress code is for this?
    It's a real interview or some sort of group orientation/application and testing deal?


    Lastly, if they like me, what is the usual offer?


    Thank you very much

    I have never heard of such a thing about hiring drivers , so they hire drivers just for the season is there anyway you can get hired on permanent and skip over being seasonal

    Forgive us new people not being as 'advanced' as you. If you know the answer why not simply write that instead or pasted the link where it can be found elsewhere?

    Thats what my email stated. I wondered the same thing so wanted to be sure I get it right and know what to expect etc...

    More than likely, you are interviewing for driver's helper, not a driving position. Seasonal drivers have pretty much all been hired and either gone to training or their training is scheduled.

    What do you think you should wear for a job interview??

    forgive my brethren new guy. Seriously, they're looking for guys that stand out.
    3 piece suit, they love earthtones, particularly brown. Good luck.

    Today is the 12th. Isn't it kinda late to be hiring, let alone interviewing, seasonal drivers?

    Let's say they hired the OP tomorrow. The earliest he would probably start would be Monday. He would have one week before the poop hits the fan.

    Seasonal drivers are already hired in my building....still hiring helpers though. OP probably misread it....

    That was my first thought----they don't usually do group interviews for seasonal drivers.

    That's true. Nothing like applying for the wrong position...lol

    Thanks NY.

    "interview session" was the wording- I guess Ill just go and see. Can't imagine a company large as UPS doing some sort of bait and switch but then again I don't know anything...
