Other (Current Employee) – UPS Freight Portland, OR – June 22, 2017
If you ever wondered what working in a prison yard would be like, work here. The most hostile environment I've ever experienced. Management is against each other, dock works are out to get management. People threaten each other with bodily harm, supervisors have had their tires slashed. There is no morale, period. Poorly run operation in general. Also, they bait and switch, they post a job with specific hours, but the people they hire never actually work the job the were supposedly hired for. It's just a complete mess overall.
Really fast paced working environment but it has it's downfalls for example most workplaces give you lunch breaks of 25-30 minutes long UPS gives the whole place a 10 minute lunch break so they force you to eat all the food you have in 10 minutes which sucks.
You work very hard and get paid very well, benefits are great but way too demanding physically.you lift all day sweat all day and no money in the world is worth having a tough time getting up the next day off your bed.
Marysville - Runner (Former Employee) – Arlington, WA – June 21, 2017
Safe drivers- I was a runner/Driver assistant (During Winter) Great pace!- no actual running is allowed just fast pacing (Amazing Exercise) Management- Never had any problems with management Hardest part?- the outfit can be a little troubling and watching out for dogs.
Business Manager (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – June 21, 2017
Good place to build a secure career. Long hours and a great deal of commitment go into this job, however if you can put in the time and are willing to do what is necessary to get the job done, there is no place like it.
UPS is a good company to work for but I do not see any advancement in this company. It is based on who you know and who you can be like. I go there and do my job and improve my team but never get recognition for it. I build up my area then I get taken out of the area once the group is built. Once I get taken out then the area falls apart. I have seen this happen too many times but yet never get credit for the good work I do.
I get a check every week
No TEAM work due to pressure and threats of getting jobs taken away from us.
Operation management Supervisor (Current Employee) – Watertown, MA – June 21, 2017
My day Starts at 2pm pretty smooth, get daily reports, Dispatch the drivers, get concern done. Everyday is a different day. You learn something new everyday. Management soso. Just not organized for me.
Package Handler (Current Employee) – Sylmar, CA – June 21, 2017
As a package handler, you are required to either unload or load up 18-Wheeler trailers for transportation the following morning. The work load is hard considering the hourly pay you get. Working conditions also aren't ideal considering there's no air-conditioning/heating working within a trailer whether it's summer time or winter time. UPS offers a lot of benefits and many career opportunities for those who see themselves working at UPS in the long run. Great company to work for and job security for those employee's who continually work to the best of their abilities.
Load Handler (Former Employee) – Hodgkins, IL – June 21, 2017
This job is rather fast paced. You are required to do a lot of heavy lifting and keep up with a pace that I feel is asking too much, by yourself. I understand that this is a package facility and people's packages have to get out, but to throw someone into a 300 package per minute trailer with no help and expect them to keep things clean is unrealistic.
weekly pay, union, weekends off
mandatory sundays, no help, managers that care more for packages than employees
Processor (Former Employee) – Morrow, GA – June 21, 2017

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.
