    simple...let them know you are not afraid of hard are willing to make a long(ish) term commitment to this job...and act impressed by whatever they show you on the tour...good luck...but if you follow my advice you are a shoe in....(assuming all the standard stuff- firm handshake, look in the eye etc)

    Now a days if you can spell UPS, they will hire you on the spot.

    Ask the HR person for the phone number if they don't give it. I would also add that you be there on time. At my building, they do the tours at 6:00 AM. If you show up at 6:05, you can forget it. Good luck tomorrow, ac33.

    Not so fast--first, we have to check if you have a pulse and, second, you have to breath on this mirror.

    best of luck to you---- but, make sure you actually want to do the job if they offer it to you... nothing is more frustrating than hiring someone who lasts through training and then quits...

    If you spell your name right on the application you will be a shoe-in.

    When did UPS start doing tours to would be employees? I started 15 years ago and NEVER had a tour. I never even knew where certain parts of our building were until I was there 5 years. I started on Preload so that was all I ever knew. one day when I was driving hey told me I was running a bulk van out. They told me it was out on the Purple Belt. I asked them where that was and they thought I was kidding. It's a decent size HUB and I had no reason to be anywhere else inthe building except for the center area so I had no idea.
