Alright. So, here's my experience so far with UPS. About two months ago, I filled out an application online. Then, almost a month ago, they let me add more info to that online application. (Personal info, name, address, etc.) After that, I had the opportunity to be interviewed. I have been pretty bored, and curious, so I was trying to look up what exactly happens during the hiring process. I have seen a lot of people say there was a tour. I was never showed anywhere besides what I looked at as I walked to the interviewer's office. I was called yesterday with a job offer as a preloader ASAP, after a background check. When she called, she also said there were roughly 10-15 more forms online to read/fill out. I've done all of that as well. My first question, when she called she made it seem like I wasn't going to get "trained" or have a "tour", she made it seem like I would go in for work whenever the check passed. She also said I needed to bring in birth cert/drivers license ON FIRST DAY, which confirms my belief that I won't be there again until I start working. So, are they just gonna throw me on the line loading trucks? Or will I get some help at least for the first few days? Number two, my job position says preloader, what will I more than likely start out as? Loading package cars, or unloading/loading semi's? I know I would much rather unload semi's, I watched some youtube videos people posted and it looks simple. What are the odds that I WON'T be loading cars? My third and final question, when I talked to the HR girl, who I assumed interviewed me, she had no idea whether my position was seasonal or permanent. I start college in January about an hour and forty-five minutes away from where I am currently living. I know UPS has a policy of only being able to transfer for educational purposes. She told me that I could transfer after a year, but there's no way in hell I am getting up at 3am, working 5-6 hours, and then driving 1:40 to sit in a college class. My question here is, is it true I have to work for a year first to transfer? Thanks for anyone who comments.
