Fast-paced, and challenging. I learned leadership, and commitment. Management was something to learn from! Co-workers at job assignment were great! The hardest part of the job was being trained, learning new work habits. The most enjoyable part of the job was having a job!
The job assignment was long termed
No breaks because the hours of part-time are not long enough to require a break.

I was promised I was going to start out as Full time back in october, but found out it was only seasonal. So after 89 days they fire you. So glad I found another full time job that has honest management
Package Handler (Part-Time) (Current Employee) – Shrewsbury, MA – May 28, 2017
When I started working seasonal at Ups 3 years ago, and they were vary gracious to keep me on I'v learned. Being that UPS was one of my first jobs I was new to a lot. I wasn't quite sure how rough my job was going to be first starting out, but with the help of UPS they put you through their comprehensive training program, and they will teach you everything you need to know. It will all became second nature and the manual labor will became nothing. It's all a very easy job after a little while.
Pros: Decent pay.(over time) Vacation time. Sick days / personal days.
Cons: Manual labor can get tiresome. Management issues.(rarely) Work conditions are dirty depending on your area.
Package Handler (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 28, 2017
It's a Mon-Fri job that starts out paying $10.00 an hr. A typical workday starts out with me setting up the rollers before e the belts come on. I get in a trailor start scanning packages,then move around to help my co workers out. Ups has taught me the value of teamwork,to always be on time, and to be aware of my surroundings. Ups can use more management .The hardest part of the job is when you sometimes have to be the worker and the manger bc some mangers don't do their jobs.

Pre-Load PT Supervisor (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 27, 2017
It seems as if Managers care more about the production value and process rate rather than employee safety. Also, managers seem to get high stress levels and start blaming others when things don't get done on time. The negativity that goes on in these unloads are strenuous and very unfriendly.
Preloader (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – May 27, 2017
Excellent company. Nice place to start a career. The day starts early and its "full throttle " until the job is done. I would definitely recommend this job for college students looking for part time work.
Sweeper (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – May 27, 2017
It is a good place to work at over all. It's not too fast and it's not too slow. If it wasn't for me going back to school, I would still be working there. The only thing I have to complain about is its lack of days off.
Preloader/Driver Helper (Former Employee) – Romoland, CA – May 27, 2017
Working for UPS was great, everyone is so nice and welcoming. The work includes a lot physical activity but it's a great work out and please there are just friendly. The staffing team is on top of everything. They provide snakes every Friday to get your day going. If you're unhappy with your position they work with you to find a great match.
