Unable to apply at a different location 2 years after leaving

    I worked in a hub for 2 years as a sorter, and had to quit due to school (I gave 2 week notice etc). This was over 2 years ago, and I'm trying to apply to another location across the state as a package handler.

    When I log into the UPS jobs website, I see my old application from 4 years ago next to the new one, but when I click the new one to complete the form it just shows a message "Previous Employee" and gives me a link to the previous page.

    What does this mean, am I on the "do not re-hire" list? Should I try to contact HR at my old hub, or contact the place I want to apply?

    It sounds like you are indeed on the "do not rehire" list. Call your former sup----he will be the one most likely to be able to help you. Good luck.

    I have no way to call my former sup, I don't have any of my old UPS contacts.

    Does anyone know if this is a definite sign of the no-rehire list, or is there any way to find my status?

    I do not know but the fact that no one has responded may be a strong sign that you are coded as No Hire.
    Most "transfer" or "relocation" is set up in advance.
    It also depends how you were coded on your termination paperwork.

    I would contact both locations and be persistent.
    It is much easier to hire a newbie.

    Simple. Create another account and apply again.

    And while you're at it, create another SS number and false identity.

    Fact unknown to you......Say the OP gets rehired after a 2 year lapse in employment. His EIN will be the same as it was when he was hired the first time.

    Better to try, what does he have to lose? It's not like ups is a government job that goes deep into your background.

    Huh? That comparison is far off. Creating another account is way different than creating another SS account, which is impossible by the way.

    Nothing that I told him is against ups policy/contract. It's called sliding through the cracks, which I believe he has a 75% chance of achieving.

    I've heard of this happening to other young people. What worked for some them was calling HR at the building they were trying to apply at, or just walking in and explaining the situation. Honestly I've seen the HR people act pretty surprised when someone reapplies, most people don't ever think about coming back.

    Go back into the basement and your x-box.

    Even if he creates a new account, if he gets to the point of having an interview it will quickly become apparent that he used to work at UPS.

    (Oh yeah, establishing a new SS number is really not hard at all.)

    They'll know as soon as he applies...your SS# is attached to your EIN. EIN's are not recycled to new employees after you're fired, quit or retire. I think Cosmo's was 0000005 :)

    For a while your SSN WAS your employee number. Until it finally got changed to try to preserve a little privacy.

    We had a driver who previously was preload let go after several months when SSN discrepancy brought her citizenship into question. How did she get hired?
