Package Handler (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 14, 2014
Although I enjoyed my short time as a seasonal package helper, I was hoping for permanent placement. I ranked high among my competition but still wasn't hired in. Be ready to work vs slowing the drivers down as you will find yourself not being called back. I also did not like that they typically only let the helpers work 4 hours out of the day.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Palm Desert, CA – February 12, 2016
A typical day would be to come in and go exactly to work. Whether it be covering someone's lunch right away, helping a customer as I come into my workplace, or help maintain cleanliness throughout my area. I've furthered my experience with customer service with this job.
Pre loader/driver helper (Former Employee) – Westville, IN – February 11, 2016
UPS is an absolute amazing place to work. I learned how to organize in a quick and sense able fashion. If you can handle the most basic instructions and have the a moderate understanding of numerical order you can learn this job quick. The hardest part of this job is keeping up with the line during peek season, and making sure you put the proper parcel in the corresponding truck. Multi-tasking is key! UPS pays at higher rate than almost any entry level job, and even at part time, you can receive full time benefits. Amazing I know. Management at the Tri-City location in Westville,IN are friendly and outgoing. The culture of the job varies and is a great atmosphere. Young and old come together to allow all sorts of intriguing conversation. Job security is easy to achieve by joining the Union. This is absolutely a dream job.
Good hours, low stress, great atmosphere and even better bosses.
A great group of people to work with who make the work environment a fun and productive place to be. Very flexible with a college student hours,weekends off, and a sustainable pay for part time/ seasonal workers.
Customer Service Representative/Trainer (Current Employee) – Newark, NJ – February 10, 2016
Handle employee compliance, organize company records for FAA, OSHA and TSA compliance; train new employees on company procedures and protocol, create and maintain computer based files, data entry, heavy phones and in house communication, shipment tracking, prepare daily reports, knowledge of workplace safety regulations and procedure.
I pretty much do the same thing everyday. My coworkers are cool people and I get along with mostly everyone. What I can say is hard sometimes is the load of packages, meaning how heavy the work load can be. The most enjoyable thing is that its an easy job.
It was a very fun working environment with an easy work routine.
Cashier, Print Expert, Packer/Shipper, Logistics (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ 85032 – February 9, 2016
This job was great for helping me to learn Logistics with the packing and shipping industry. It also gave me the opportunity to work on my Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator skills while helping members work on their advertisements or portfolios for businesses. I loved this job, so much so, that when I was leaving I recommended my brother and he was accepted.
Lots of free time. Opportunities to learn new computer skills.
Around holidays packing and shipping becomes very hectic an fast paced.
