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. Sep 15, 2020 1+37 start to finish The formal interview was conducted with an HR rep and a retired Capt via online. The HR rep set the stage that this was an opportunity for them to get to know me, and to relax. She started the interview by talking about the company, how the HR works, what to expect if given a CJO. She then gave an overview of her career at UPS, followed by the retired Capt giving his career overview. Then they turned it over to me and asked for me to tell them about myself, and walk...

  2. Aug 20, 2020 Initial phone screening was straight forward review of my resume, received the Hogan test the next day. The next day got a call from HR to set up an online interview, scheduled about 5 weeks after the call. Interview was very similar as described by others, 1 HR rep and 1 retired pilot who happened to be the same guy that did my phone screening. Started out with the “tell me about yourself” question which sets up the interview for follow on questions so have that portion dialed... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Aug 10, 2020 Got an initial call with mini interview over the phone, then did the hogan test, after passing that scheduled the online Interview one month later.

  4. Jun 24, 2020 Interviewed with an HR person and retired pilot. Very welcoming and conversational interview. All the normal ‘admin’ questions to begin. Verify hours, aircraft currently flying, education, etc. They each gave an introduction about themselves before asking me to give an intro of professional background, personal background, or combination of both. Asked general questions (view the study guide of this website).  A couple questions on my international experience with the... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Jun 22, 2020 Online interview. Really relaxed. Standard HR questions you know are coming. Tech portion was very brief. If you get the interview. Do some consulting and you will ace it.  Be early. I was asked how early is too late. Be prepared to tell them what you are going to do to make UPS a great airline. My question was about how the pilots used to exit the aircraft via forklift. Hypothetical questions are in my opinion the hardest part. That was the only part of my interview that I didnt...

  6. Jun 03, 2020 The current gouge is very consistent and accurate. The interview was very relaxed, be ready to have a nice chat about UPS (history to current affairs), your self and flying! However, don't forget that it is still a very important interview so maintain a professional demeanor. You might experience mixed feedback during the interview; remember they are just doing their job and want to see how you react to different situations and types of interactions. Brush up on technicals topics: Descend... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. May 25, 2020 Online interview. Went exactly as expected. Know why you want to work there and background about UPS. Know approach plates and how to brief them, along with holding, basic instrument stuff, weather, etc. 1+20 total, mostly HR and how you will deal with flying at night and fatigue. Judgment question about going around on unstabilized approach and then what - safety... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. May 21, 2020 I had an online interview. My interview had very little company history a far more technical questions. There was one HR rep and one management pilot (retired 747 captain). He was the same captain that conducted my initial phone screening. Standard HR questions with technical questions about RVSM, SDF Jepp plate, SLOP, deice fluid, drift down, V1 cut, and RNP. Overall a very pleasant experience and was told “no news is good news.” Still waiting to hear... Continue reading this interview experience
