Great money, amazing benefits, bad management/employee communication
Cover Driver (Former Employee) – Alexandria, LA – October 25, 2016
Company has been great, but since UPS became involved with the NYSE, the daily goal of "what would be best here," went to "how much can we cram on every driver's truck." The money is great with daily 8hr and weekly 40hr base overtime, and the benefits that are even available to part-time after 1 year are second to none. What the HR reps fail to tell you is how much pressure management will put on you to be faster and faster, even making you feel that you need to clock in bathroom breaks as a lunch, or making you work during your unpaid lunch hour. Just because a computer tells them it can be done within a certain time, they expect you to complete it, even though the next day it shows it should have taken longer. Expect 10hrs of work daily, and during peak season, up to 14hrs. Most centers is a Monday-Friday workload with a very small crew on Saturdays, however some centers are changing to Monday-Saturday full work days.
Great money and benefits
Management, forget about being home for winter holiday breaks.
