Customer Service (Current Employee) – Clinton, UT – August 7, 2014
A normal day at The UPS Store would include helping customers, packaging packages, making copies, sending faxes, and restocking/doing inventory for the store. Overall, the job is pretty easy, but there is a lot of information to retain and remember on a daily basis,

Package Handler (Former Employee) – Willow Springs, IL – April 24, 2017
The unlaoder was to unload delivery trucks on a daily basis day to day bases. I learned the job to be safe with heavy products on daily basis. The management team made sure that we were safe and complient the day. Workplace culture was excellent we made sure that we work as a unit and made sure thrucks were loaded and job was well done. Hardest part of job was loaded the trucks.

Customer care (Former Employee) – Silverdale, WA – April 23, 2017
I loved working there, I am a little sad that the seasonal work ended so quickly. The employees were all awesome to work with. The only downside I had there was that there were a good number to customers that no matter what always yelled at the employees. It can be hard when someone won't listen to anyone in the store.
Package Handler (Current Employee) – Ontario, CA – April 23, 2017
work hard to compensate for slackers learned how to sort by colors management is aight workplace culture is cool hardest part of the job is working with little to no breaks the most enjoyable part of the job is when you finally finish and time is winding down to go home
no benefits for a full year, no full time positions, seniority overall
They're all privately owned stores. I only got paid 9 dollars an hour but obviously that depends on who you work for. Definitely not worth it pay wise. You do much more than you get paid for. Especially if you're in a situation like mine where you're the only one covering the counter. A coworker of mine that recently left worked there for 4 years and only got a 25 cent raise during the time she was there. Like I said, great if you're a college student that only needs pocket cash and gas money.
Seasonal Driver Helper (Former Employee) – Uniontown, PA – April 23, 2017
I really enjoyed my time at UPS, however brief. It was an incredible work experience I hoped would turn into a career with engineering. The people you work with are great from the office to the trucks. Very worth the effort and persistence.
Good hours, Good people, room to grow, good benefits
Preloader (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – April 23, 2017
Usually work started at 11pm, I would clock in then after my supervisor would assign me to my trucks. Most of the time you would have 3-4 trucks to lead packages into and each truck would have around 100-400 packages all different sizes. It was kind of hard but you have to move fast pace with that job. It's a friendly job and you will have to communicate with your other employees to help everyone jobs go smoothly. The hardest part of the job was managing 4 trucks with so many packages but it helped me learn how to move in a fast pace for the future. The most enjoyable part was when your done packing all your trucks without the hassle.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – April 23, 2017
UPS isn't a bad company to work for they have plenty of opportunities to advance. However there's plenty of better career choices that won't break your back or have you coming home furious with your 10 bosses. The management their can be very shady and take alot of shortcuts for "logistics", their poster's should show workers throwing boxes and smashing them around then the driver throwing them at door steps. Not to mention the lawsuit when the union found out management was shaving hours off their employees checks. So yeah what can brown do for you?
Yearly raises that very, offers opportunities to advance, ok benefits
Very strenuous, very monotonous, boxes will basically run your life, and management is really bad.
