Arrived 5 minutes before report time of 0815. Signed in and was given a visitor badge. A few minutes later I was greeted by a nice retired captain who would be conducting my sim eval. He showed me around and then we sat for a while which he explained the process of the day and the sim profile. He took all required paperwork and logbooks and they were viewed by another office during the sim eval. (view the... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Jan 12, 2022 The process was very straightforward. Called for the resume review and it was basic. Only to verify who you are, and the experience you have. Why you want to work for UPS, any failures, any accidents. The one question that surprised me was any failures on any FAA written exams. So be sure to know your history. Then to Hogan test was 48 hours later. Pretty standard, remember to answer the questions truthfully, and not what you think is the correct answer. Got a call to schedule interview...

  2. Jan 10, 2022 Interview experience overall was very positive with UPS. Resume review over zoom with retired UPS Pilot and zoom interview with current FO and retired HR Rep. They went out of their way to put me at ease and made the interview pleasant. Word of caution, don't let this relaxed style bring your guard too low, you're still being evaluated. I used a service for the HR portion and felt it was a big help in gathering my stories and figuring out how to communicate them in a professional way... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Jan 06, 2022 Very straight forward interview. HR guy + retired Captain. All questions made are in this website, no surprises, no pushes. Everyone very kind and straight forward. Technical questions very operational (charts interpretation, contingency procedure NAT, what would you do with smoke on board, what do you understand for leadership, TEM model, CRM, holding pattern). HR with some TAAT like questions as challenging times, how would you handle a difficult colleague, how you got into aviation, what... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Jan 05, 2022 Applied late fall, got an email about 2 weeks later for resume review which I did over the phone. Just talked briefly about my career, why UPS, and went over formality questions. Recieved email for Hogan test, given 7 days to complete. I got a call for an interview, which was the first week of the year. All the questions on this site are 100% relevant, I studied them, practiced answering, and focused on being myself. I got on my zoom call, about 5 mins early, and both HR and...

  5. Dec 06, 2021 Study guide was perfect. Zoom interview. 33yr captain and 35yr HR rep. Logged in 10 early, started 5min early, lasted 90min. Lots of TMAAT, scenarios, some minor tech, Jepp IAP and holding. Nothing crazy or unexpected. They put you at ease right away. Asked why not pax carrier, and how I thought I'd handle UPS lifestyle. NAT emergencies and divert questions. Gave them a couple different IFEs or quick decisions made. Discussed whether I'd commute if didn't get first base assigned. Also, asked...

  6. Dec 01, 2021 Very friendly and approachable interview. Had a retired-returned HR person and a 5 year FO on the interview, they were professional and seemed very genuine in their desire to get to know me. Interview lasted 1:20 but it went fast, told probably 4 stories in longer format than my other (major) airline interview and they had follow up questions/comments after about the stories. Tech questions were straightforward, be prepped with 60:1 maths and other basic pilot math (nothing exact, just be... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Nov 30, 2021 The guide here captures it all. Only surprise was about half of the zoom interview was technical in nature. Nothing too difficult but be prepared. The TMAT questions were not worded directly as such so pay attention to the interviewer's wording. CRM scenario was a CA that dives at GS capture and is belligerent to feedback. Briefed SDF 35L ILS.. Jepp plate was provided onscreen. Was asked to teach the HR rep on basic instrument scan techniques. Was asked how many hours I flew in each of... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Oct 26, 2021 In no particular order are the HR questions.  Then Technical Questions. He then shared his screen with the UPS TEM model and asked me to read through it and explain it someone who has no idea about TEM.  Talk me through a V1 cut in your aircraft, right after you hear the V1 call. You can stop whenever you want so I took it to clean-up and terminated at calling for the applicable checklist. He shared his screen with the ROBUC3 STAR into Boston,  Said I was at the Kennedy VOR,... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Oct 13, 2021 I submitted my application at the beginning of the year. Initial zoom interview was scheduled about 6 weeks ago,  which lasted 10 mins with one of the HR people. I received the Hogan test invite one day after the zoom meeting. Hogan was done 10 days later. Final interview was scheduled for 2 days ago. Interview took 1hr 20mins. I was asked only 1 technical question (Approach Briefing) and rest of the questions came from HR side. It was a nice experience and they were very professional. I...

  10. Oct 04, 2021 Great experience logged in 15 min early got started 5 min early. Took 1.5 hours in total, HR asked alot of CRM and conflict TMAAT situations. Technical portion was straight forward with all the top questions on this site. No... Continue reading this interview experience
