Default UPS Interview Prep

Good afternoon, I was wondering if anyone who's recently hired or has recently interviewed could recommend an interview prep service? I had found some info before but I can't seem to find it now, is there a specific prep service for UPS?

Adam Hughes. A little hard to get a hold of but fantastic interview prep as well as sim prep. I highly recommend doing the sim prep too.

I did Emerald Coast....with a grain of salt. I went in there knowing I didnít want to be a robot and looked at it more about being able to articulately formulate the answers to the common questions. I read Big Brown and knew every inch of the company website, there is a ton of stuff they do....know it all. Lastly, I got a cheap desktop sim with a cheap yoke and worked on my raw data scan using a 757/767 cockpit. I felt very prepared and successfully passed the interview.

I second Adam Hughes. He encourages you to be yourself while ironing out the wrinkles that might inadvertently hold you back. I had done a ton of research and prep beforehand but used him as a confidence booster and to polish up the rusty parts. Coming to UPS is a huge paycut initially and Adam is very expensive; however, I feel itís he best money I ever spent to land my dream job.

Several people have mentioned over the past 3 years that during their interview they were asked if they used a prep course....

I was told by a recruiter back in 2016 they prefer applicants NOT utilize a course because they donít want canned answers. I have no clue what their position is now.

UPS will spend upwards of 2 hours face to face in that room interviewing you... unlike most carriers who spend 30 minutes or less.

I used Emerald Coast and Adam Hughes. In my experience Emerald Coast was more geared toward the legacy pilot interview, while Adam was more in line with the "conversational" style at UPS. Do I think I could have gotten the job without all the prep? Maybe. Would I try if I could do it all over again? No. Having never interviewed anywhere, it was tremendous peace of mind. Adam did a great job covering everything that UPS brought up during the interview...and much more. Nothing I said was canned or not true, but it was certainly nice to have thought about it a little beforehand. Now that I'm past year 2 I can say that the money you spend on prep will give you a far better return than most investments.

Will let recent folks detail specifics, Takeoff, fly basic instruments, turns, climbs, descents, fly approach.
More important IMO, is recent experience: Seem to use A-300 and 757 sims the most. If a regional, corporate or military single seat driver, then scan would be the consideration. It would be different than currently flying spatially. Coupled with lack of experience in A300/757 sized aircraft, may assist the profile performance to accomplish sim prep. If flying similar a/c then not as critical to obtain sim prep IMHO.
If not stabilized and safe to land in the sim... DONT, go around. Demonstrate safety
