I agree with everything except "flying trips they just won't do", from what I've read they are flying some pretty good trips.

Also these jobs might be temporary at WGA, don't think UPS will be allowed to violate our scope forever.

[QUOTE=Need4speed21;2535565]It went well the Skype was about 30 minutes long they asked everything,very nice people very professional after skype about an hour later got a call from Cinthia the HR Mgr for the face to face in Mia the interview in Miami is a little tuff they talk about the Company future goals everything straight forward no run around the bushes after that you get a math test and a very difficult technical 40 question test,then after that a sim eval...

Need4Speed21,

Can you please expand on what made the written test difficult?

Another person wrote that there were a lot of ICAO/International Procuderes related questions (not sure if the questions were on the test or part of the face to face portion of the interview) was this also your experience?

Entries made to Aviationinterviews refer to a "sim script" and "FMC setup" as part of the sim evaluation.

Can anyone answer if:
1. The sim script is sent before interview day or handed to the
applicant the day of the interview?
2. Are you instructed on how to setup the FMC during the
evaluation or are instructions given as part of the sim script for
you to then demonstrate during the evaluation?
3. What kind of FMC does the sim have? (I want to search online
for available tutorials).
4. Has anyone rented the PanAm sim in MIA for familiarity prior to
the evaluation?

I have an interview scheduled and would appreciate any help/advice/gouge that anyone has to offer.

PMs are fine if you prefer.


Thanks in advance.

...
I guess I should’ve used a sarcasm smiley
Point being, ALL those trips should be flown by ups pilots. Period.
I think that’s something we can agree on..
