Do you need an air compressor or tire gauge
i hope you keep your glove box clean because that is what they are looking forHi all, new member here. I've been doing a lot of reading on the forums, have utilized the search function, and still haven't found an exact response to my question, so I'm posting a new one...as much as I know y'all are going to hate me for it, LOL.
UPS had a package handler position listed on Indeed about a month ago. I filled out an application online, but was too late - by the time I filled out the app, the job was no longer available. They said my app would remain on file if other jobs opened up. Last week, on Tuesday, I got an email from an HR lady at a local hub that positions had opened up and requesting me to complete my application online and that interviews/facility tour would be held Wed. at 6:30 a.m. I completed the application and "booked" the tour/interview for the next morning. Wed. morning I got there plenty early, had a great tour and interview, the HR lady was very complimentary of my appearance (4 of the 6 that showed up looked like they literally got out of bed and came in), that I had brought a resume, had asked thoughtful questions, had a great background, etc. She said she had to run a background check, but expected to call me in a few days and have me in there working within a week or two.
The day after the interview, I logged in and my application was "active" for "Load/Unload AM" & the additional documents section had been opened up in my application, and even though I hadn't heard from anyone, I went ahead and filled them all out (I figured I was being proactive/showing I wanted the job). It's been 6 days and I haven't heard from anyone. My dumb*ass didn't get HR's contact info (I didn't start reading these forums until after my interview/tour). When I log into my application now (since yesterday), it says "inactive/application on file" and is completely locked.
Any thoughts of whether this is a good/bad progression of things? Suggestions of how to follow-up? Should I try to call and get a phone number/email for HR, or should I just show up to inquire about the status of my application/express my interest. There is nothing in my background that would be an issue on the background check, so I don't think that's it. Just getting restless. And YES, I know from reading on here that they like to keep you in limbo and it can take a while. I'm just concerned about the progression from opening up the additional documents, which I took as a good thing, to the application now being listed as "inactive," which I took as bad. This is at the Durham, NC hub, and they said they had several positions open, and there were only 6 of us there that day (and like I said, 4 of the 6 did not appear to be impressing the HR lady - per HER). Any thoughts? Thanks!
