I applied for a Job at UPS sometime last month as a package handler. I interviewed with them about 2 weeks ago. Today around 11 am I get a phone call from Mario at UPS and was offered a position with the company but for a different shift. I applied for the 6pm-10pm shift, he offered me the 4am-8:30/9am one. I had to decline the position due to my college hours. I have classes from 8am-9:15am on Tues, Wed, Thurs, and Friday. I listed my hours of availability on the aplication and even explained them to him on the telephone before being offered the interview. He asked me if I could rearange my schedule to fit around theirs, I explained to him how I can't do that, but next semester I'd be more than happy to shedule my courses around the work shedule. I then asked him if I could leave at 7:30/7:45ish. His answer was no. I was then told, "we want someone who is going to be flexable." Like this is somehow my fault that I can't make it in for a shift that goes against the hours I told them I could do. They knew full well what hours I could keep. It really irks the crap out of me because I need a job really badly, I'm finally offered one, and a good one at that, $8.50 per hour to start, 50 cent bump after 90 days, full medical, dental, vision, insurance, and 401 k, for part timers. and I have to shoot it down.. I can't get over how anal places are. They know your hours, interview you knowing these hours, then offer you a totally different shift and give you a line about flexability and how you're making a huge mistake by passing up this opportunity! I do actually feel like a just blew a huge opportunity too.
