In Alberta I applied via email Wednesday night at about 10, was called at 9:30 am on Thursday, went to an interview at 8:00 on Friday, met the supervisor that evening at 6:00, and had orientation the following Tuesday.It seems rather difficult to get into UPS... am I mistaken? I would like to get a job as a package handler. Put in an inquiry online, waited a month, and heard nothing. Are you less likely to be picked if you're not a student?
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!
at my hub in ontario california it seem that being a stundent is very key to getting hired. it seems that about 85% of new employee's are students
guy, you're awesome. you're an inspiration to us allWhen I got hired in 1971, to become fultime, you had to be at least 21 years old, have the military service over with, and be married. I was working part time running the receiving counter, loading the night feeder and portering. I fulfilled 2 of the 3 requirements. Then I got married on a saturday and was hired fultime the following tuesday. I never even went to UPS school. They put me in a ford econoline and had me driving to North Dakota when it began UPS service. For the next 30 years when ever I was chosen for an ass chewing I would say "well I never went to UPS school" and plead stupidity. Sometimes they though it was funny and sometimes not. Up to a month before I retired I tried to get them to send me for the week long training school (now I here it's 2 weeks) but they never would.
Apparently they didn't want to hire you one day and have you drafted the next. Oh yes-the draft- now that's another story. I still have splinters under my finger nails from when they drug me off the front porch. (just kidding)guy, you're awesome. you're an inspiration to us all
military service over with before you can apply, oh how the times have changed...
