    Hello, I interviewed for part time package handler position last Wednesday (10 days ago) at UPS and she told me she'd run a background check and get back to me. Wasn't invited to fill out tax forms or direct deposit online yet, and should have asked if I got an offer but didn't receive an official yes or no. Interview went pretty well, I thought, but I still havn't heard back or received any updates. I called HR and she said she'd call me. If she ran a background check, in your experience, does this mean I got the job? How long after interview did it take for you to get an offer? Or is this just code for no I didn't get it, do they tell you you got rejected or you hear nothing back? My current status online is active for preloader. I don't think the checks take this long and I am worried, going to look elsewhere for employment soon but UPS is my first choice. I worked there as a seasonal driver helper two years ago and have backroom experience. Any input would be great.

    Background checks take about a week, because of the volume they have. If your status changed to preloader, they are just waiting for a spot to open up.

    UPS can not afford to not hire everyone that applies and still want the job after the building tour. If you have better prospects, I would go for it.

    No criminal background of any kind aside from two speeding tickets on my provisional license 7ish years ago. What do they check for anyway?

    Congratulations on your promotion from applicant to part time supervisor. Get some rest though, when you make center manager in two weeks, you will be working 60-70 hrs a week!

    I'm in the same position also. I applied at Farmingdale NY. Went in on aug 25th for the tour, and 1on1 interview. Took my SSN for the background check, told me the check only takes a day. And said something about orientation after labor day. I don't think he told me to call in or anything, but I tried anyway.. But Couldn't get a hold HR dept to check status. My On-line status sais active/preloader too. Anything else I can do, or just wait and see if they call?

    Yea I work there...and you were lied to....background checks take longer than one day. And cannot contact HR by phone until you actually work here. Sit tight or head down to the FedEx building a little further down the road and apply there....rumor has it they pay more.

    They ran my background check 7/26/16 I was cleared and started training 8/1/16.(They called me with my started date) I had to go online in between that and finish the online application (as per HR). I got a paper copy of the background check in the mail about a week later.

    lol at target, not directly packaging handling but thought it was worth a mention. with that and driver helper experience felt i was qualified enough but who knows

    $150 a week? You could make more working at McDonald's.

    True. And not rupture a disc in your back in the process. A McDouble is a lot easier to load than a 60 lb. box filled with goldfish bound for Petsmart.

    I should clarify, want the tuition assistance, and to get foot in door to become driver possibly, and for reg type driving position as needed. for me, its a good opportunity
