Some good questions to ask a recruiter includes "What are my responsibilities as a Driver Helper?", "Will I be responsible for things other than just packages?", and "Would I be required to work alone as a Driver Helper?"
I think a good question to ask a recruiter would be how much heavy lifting is required from the job. That was important for me because I’m not the strongest person in the world, but most packages aren’t that heavy. For the heavy ones or odd shaped ones, the driver has tools to help with the packages, and you can work together as a team. I think it’s good to ask about any physical requirements you might be worried about so the recruiter can explain them to you and you fully understand what you are getting you and your body into.
What shifts are available? (If you are able to work preload or twilight you can earn extra money.) Is the manager exam available? (If you have graduated or about to graduate with a business degree, sometimes the manager exam will allow you to skip grunt work.)
Ask general questions about the entry level positions. Sorters are typically people that have been there 3+ years, but not all the time. Most entry positions are loader & unloader. Ask how fast and how much they require you to lift and load. They like to see people who can work in a fast physical environment and especially like to see people that are ok with lifting upto 75 lbs. Experience like warehouse work and construction are a plus. Also be very interested in safety. UPS is very safety oriented and try to avoid injuries at all costs. Ask what safety measures UPS takes to protect its workers.
Some good questions one should ask a UPS employee recruiter would be; how flexible is the work schedule for a college student? How long after I begin work would benefits kick in? Is there a vacation/option day policy available, and if so, how would it effect me as a new employee? Are there specific job roles or would I be placed wherever I am needed?
It depends on what position you are applying for, it used to be that every employee had to start as a loader or unload-er, but now they sometimes hire management directly.
"I am looking to start a career with a highly respected company, what turnover rate does UPS have?"
"How far can I go in the organization with the degree I have (or will have)?" UPS is international so there is a possibility of working outside of the USA
