If you’re preparing for a UPS (United Parcel Service) assessment test, there are several steps you can take to help you practice and improve your chances of success

All About the United Parcel Service (UPS) and Their Hiring Process

UPS aptitude tests may include numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, and abstract reasoning questions. These tests are designed to evaluate a candidate’s cognitive abilities, such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and numerical skills.

Getting a Job at UPS:

To begin your career at UPS you first need to find the opening that is best for you. The list of jobs at UPS vary pretty greatly, but a few that tend to have consistent openings are:

  • Freight Truck Driver (CDL)
  • Delivery Driver (Class D License)
  • Warehouse Workers
  • Package Handlers
  • Automotive Technicians
  • Fleet Leaders
  • Engineers
  • IT Specialists
  • Sales Representatives
  • UPS supervisor

Once you have found the position that interests you, complete an online application. This can be done through the listing site for the position, but usually is completed on the United Parcel Service’s career website. When completing your application, be certain to include an updated resume that has been curated specifically for the position you are seeking.

Assuming your application is well received, the third step is to complete an interview. This interview may vary by location. It may be a phone interview, a face-to-face interview at a nearby facility, or a mix of both. Show up prepared to share your knowledge of the company, the position, and how you are a good fit for both.

The last step to landing a job at UPS is to take and pass any pre-employment assessments or tests that may be required.

UPS Pre-Employment Assessments

There are a variety of tests that you may have to take before successfully acquiring a job at UPS. The majority of applicants will be face with general psychometric tests created by the company Kenexa, but others will be faced with job-specific tests (DOT test, driving test, etc.).

Driving Tests and DOT Drug Testing

Those who wish to drive for UPS as a delivery driver, freight driver, or fleet leader will need to take a driving test and a DOT drug test.

The DOT (department of transportation) drug test is a straightforward drug testing procedure that is approved by the DOT. These tests are administered at registered locations and are usually scheduled within a week of the request to test.

The driving test goes beyond the standard test that was taken to receive your license and focuses heavily on the ability to make proper decisions under pressure and stick to driving safe practices. This is a digital exam, and you will not be getting behind the wheel for this test.

UPS Psychometric Testing

The list of psychometric tests you may be asked to take include:

  • Numerical reasoning Test assesses the test-taker’s ability to evaluate and utilize numerical data, especially from charts and graphs.
  • Bennet Mechanical Test A popular aptitude test that displays the test-taker’s ability to understand mechanical functions and utilize this knowledge to solve mechanical problems.
  • Situational Judgement Test A scenario driven assessment that lets the test-taker choose between hypothetical answers to see how well they would perform in a real work environment.
  • Caliper Profile Test A personality assessment that explores the test-taker’s character traits and identifies how they would be beneficial or harmful in a specific career.
  • Logic and Verbal Reasoning A multiple-choice assessment that looks into the test-taker’s ability to read and comprehend information, utilize that information, and communicate both verbally and in the written form.

To prepare for UPS pre-employment assessments, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the types of assessments that may be used and to practice similar types of questions.
