    I applied for a PT package handler position at Whites Creek in Nashville and received this message:

    Thank you for your interest in UPS and for completing our online assessment. We appreciate the time and effort you have put into your application.

    After a complete review of your qualifications and assessments, we have decided not to proceed with your candidacy at this time. However, we will keep your application active for one year and notify you if a potential opening becomes available that is a good match for you.

    We hope you found the online games interesting and the trait report useful. We wish you every success in your job search and encourage you to keep exploring.

    Best Regards,
    UPS Recruitment.

    I searched the forums trying to find similar occurrences but couldn’t find any. I’m curious if this is a means to an end or if the position has already been filled. The application didn’t give me an opportunity to fill out job history or even references. Just my name, email, zip code and a 12 game assessment with pymetrics. Has anyone else had a similar situation?

    didn’t read the whole post . Just drive to your local Ups hr building & fill out application in person.

    “qualifications and assessments” for a package handler?..What do they ask you?, what’s 2+2?

    I was surprised, instead of asking for my job history it has me playing multiple games.

    Nice lol. However, it’s actually a part time position. Hopefully that it why they turned me down because their about to offer seasonal positions but who knows! :dont_know:

    Evidently you are not a good fit for UPS.

    I think you’re right unfortunately. Back where I’m from, my dads a package handler and my two brothers are package car drivers for brown lol. Guess I didn’t make the cut. ‍:chaseups:

    Or it could be that they drew the line on family. It was not that long ago that UPS would not hire relatives. I wonder if a family has a 'quota' you yours has been reached. Maybe try again after one of your relatives retires.

    I moved away for school and I don’t live at home anymore. It’s just unfortunate because I have a good resume but wasn’t required.

    You’re probably right. However, I didn’t even get far enough to give out any information. Pretty much my name, number, email and a 12 game quiz. Application didn’t even require a resume of any sorts.

    You might have been over qualified, UPS doesn’t want intelligent people they want work horses

    I remember back in 84 when I started, UPS use to hire from unemployment office. They would keep a list of applicants there and when UPS got ready to hire, they would go to office and interview people. The day I was hired was the day I filled out a UPS application.
