Meeting and talking with different individuals was exciting
CALL CENTER REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – June 21, 2017
A typical day at this job was sometimes overwhelming due to the call volume. I learned about different route choices that the customers were able to choose from. Management worked as a team player when having different situations. The hardest part of my job would be the irate customers that hadn't received their packages on time. The most enjoyable part of the job would be helping and making customers feel good about chosing UPS
Receiving kudos and acknowledgement for a job well done from management
Having only 30 minutes for lunch and the cafeteria is located 10 minutes from your station
Loader (Former Employee) – Mesquite, TX – June 21, 2017
UPS had really good benefits. It was really hot inside the warehouse though. It was tough labor. No a/c in the warehouse. It was a great work out at the same time because of all of the labor. Overall UPS was a great experience i had.
Dismal working place with vending machines that don't work and no A/C or Heat in the warehouse.
Package Handler (Current Employee) – Alexandria, VA – June 21, 2017
If your a college student or a driver then UPS is the place for you. If your just working in the warehouse. UPS is not the place for you. None of the operating procedures or practices are in place. Safety is a constant issue as well as damaged packages. Retention is also another issue facing the company that has a very high turn over rate.
Good place for benefits and building your 401K
Bad place to work because you can be demoted or terminated without a moments notice
Customer Service Representative I (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – June 20, 2017
Management would make a point to let the employees that work hard know that they are appreciated. I learned how to assist callers in a timely fashion. The hardest part of the job would be to explain certain situations while still following security guidelines.
Package Handler, UPS (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – June 20, 2017
On a typical day of working at UPS its very fast pasted or you have to be physically fit for working at UPS. You really don't learn nothing but to pay attention to the things you do while being very careful. Management at UPS is good. Hardest part of the job is keeping up with loading because there are a lot of boxes and things to sort through but also being physically fit to pick up very heavy boxes and load them into the truck by yourself.
Package Handler (Former Employee) – Willow Grove, PA – June 20, 2017
A typical day at work would involve loading packages onto package trucks. It is laid back at my hub but you are kind of your own boss in the sense that you manage yourself. Everyone is a team so if you are not finished loading your packages onto your package trucks, which you get at max of 4 trucks a day, your team would help out at the end. But it is cutthroat because if you don't load a certain amount of packages they will fire you.
A day at UPS was very fast paced and usually successful. I learned how to work at a fast pace and how to stay focused. The management was above average. The hardest part of my job there was staying on track and not getting behind. The most enjoyable part was being active and seeing your success at the end of the shift.
You work a lot and are constantly busy so time does go fast on your shift. You can ask for overtime hours and sometimes they will give it to you. Some managers where great to work with and others let the position go to there head..
