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

  3. Aug 03, 2022 Submitted my application early this year. Received an email to do a resume review over the phone in the summer.

  5. Jun 21, 2022 All previous interview experiences held true. Both retirees, the pilot was a former ACP at ONT. Both had only basic questions that are in the questions lists on this site, no real surprises at all, though the pilot did put his questions into more of a scenario than straight out question. They were cordial, and went above and beyond in answering my questions about schedule, bidding, benefits, etc. They did say while the "standard" company response is as much as 90 days, current...

  9. May 18, 2022 The interview was very straightforward. Read big brown and study the website to learn how UPS is technology driven, customer focused, and people led. Make your “Why UPS” answer as personal as possible using this information as a guide, they really appreciate it.

  10. May 09, 2022 Very consistent with previous entries. Applied early part of the year, received a cold call resume interview the last day of the month, Hogan invite the next day, completed it within a week, and then didn't hear anything until mid-Spring. Late Summer availability was likely the reason it went dark for a while. Asked questions about what leadership means to me, what have I learned about the company that I thought was interesting, and what tools are available to backup ATC on terrain...
