Application questions

  • Why do I want to be an engineer? Do I live a commutable distance away? What are my pay expectations? That is as far as we got before cell reception failed and the recruiter subsequently made himself unavailable.

Comment

An out-of-state recruiter launched into a phone screen interview when I was simply returning a call, hoping to set up an appointment. I was on the side of the road in the first safe place I could stop, trying to be prompt. After losing cell reception, I called back immediately and had to call 3 times until the recruiter answered and said he was in a meeting and couldn't talk now. That was the last I heard until an automated email 3 weeks later, saying the position was filled. After the phone calls, I had written the company off and was glad to have gotten a glimpse of its operations.

  • The site itself is very thorough. Took me awhile time to complete it.
  • No contact after weeks. I know UPS has a good image but I never heard back. Nothing. No rejection letter or potential interview. No phone call msg.

Comment

For employers to call people and leave a voicemail vs emails. When people are searching for jobs, they will be getting a lot of job related emails on openings. It's far easier to reach a candidate by phone, leaving a msg.

Application questions

  • The interview never happened nor did I get a response from this company to whether they were still hiring for that position or not.

Comment

Check out the online applications and if not at least give a location to where people can apply for the position. If you are no longer hiring then let these job search engines (i.e. Monster, Indeed, Career Builder etc...) that you the employer use to post when you are looking to hire, that the position is no longer available. Don't keep the same posting for a month and not respond to the applicants.

Comment

Stop talking out of both sides of your mouth. UPS purports itself to be a "People First" Company. Nothing could be further from the truth. Start practicing what you preach.

I retired from UPS after a long career in Management. For the last 3-5 years prior to retirement it was apparent that the Company attempted to build a case against me in an attempt to terminate me before I could retire.

Application questions

  • The company's main focus was to ensure each applicant had reliable transportation as it was not on a public transit route nor was there any acceptable excuses for not having transportation to the job site.
  • No feedback was offered for not being considered for a position. the initial speaker's only comment was that if a candidate did not hear from the company within 3 days then"the job was offered to the person sitting next to you".

Comment

Application was lengthy, time consuming, and detailed to specific experience.
