  • 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 took all required paperwork and logbooks and they were viewed by another office during the sim eval. (view the...

    The interview process was via zoom with 1 retired HR and 1 retired Captain. It lasted a little more than an hour overall. They started with HR questions, (view the study guide of this website). Then they swapped to the technical portion of the interview. The retired CA asked me to perform a descent planning scenario, asked me to perform a holding entry and procedure, talked through wind-shear escape maneuver, and briefed an RNAV arrival in SDF. The process was very laid back, very...

    Very welcoming panel of interviewers. They quickly put you at ease and want to get to know the real you. The whole interview is more of a discussion with follow up questions than rapid fire back and forth. I used a service and the study guide on here and felt more than prepared for everything that was brought up. If you made it far enough to interview they really do want to hire...

    Very casual interview session. It was more of a nice conversation than an interview where they are firing questions at you. Both interviwers were truly gentlemen. One retired captain and one retired HR. They just want to know who you are, why do you want to join UPS and want to know more about your intereactions with colleagues in your previous jobs. How do you handle different situations, etc. Overall it was a great experience. If the mayority of people at UPS are like the gentlemen who...

    Everything that’s been posted is spot on. Use the study guide questions to prep! Very relaxed interview. The interviewers were the retired hr gentleman and the retired pilot. Focus on tmaat scenarios. I came in from 19 years of 121 from a major and I was a line check pilot. So the focus was more on those experiences. The questions seem very tailored to your experience. Know how to read a jeep...

    The process was almost identical to what others have described here in this most recent wave of hiring at UPS. Two weeks after submitting my application, I was called by a management pilot to schedule a “resume overview” on the phone, which occurred two days later. He goes over your flight experience and flying record. I had an ATP checkride failure from 17 years ago which I went over in detail— so much so that he had to confirm I was just talking about a single event! They...
