Good Benefits & Good Raises
Preloader (Former Employee), Tempe, AZApril 22, 2014
Pros: free medical/dental/vision/life insurance for entire family, great pension, weekends and holidays off, overnight hours so you have the day to yourself
Cons: mean/negative managers & supervisors, mean/negative workers, painful physical labor
PROS: FREE medical/dental/vision/life insurance for you after 12 months, and for your family after 18 months. Raises are inevitably $1 every 6 to 12 months. I liked the work hours (overnight). Weekends off. Holidays off. Paid vacation/personal/sick time after 12 months. Good way to keep in shape. Can wear regular, casual clothing to work. Can bring – more... and play own music.

CONS: The majority of workers (managers, supervisors, drivers, loaders) are ridiculously mean and negative to one another. Employees are allowed to scream at, disrespect, and cuss at their managers & Supervisors, which I just can't stand such disrespect towards superiors. Supervisors & Managers, in turn, are allowed to do the same to their employees. There seems to be enemies: drivers against the loaders & loaders and drivers against the managers. It's hard, physical labor that leaves you hurting, and would be worth it if people showed kindness and appreciation towards your hard work, but they only show hate. It's a really weird organizational culture that I just couldn't stomach. – less

Productive environment.
Package Handler (sorter) (Current Employee), Tualatin, ORApril 22, 2014
Pros: free bbq/hotdogs for a week or month without injuries.
Cons: short breaks, extremely demanding physically.
Typically my job is fast paced, and physically demanding. I enjoy it, however. My co-workers and I process incoming packages and move them to corresponding conveyor belts to make sure the packages get to the proper destination, without mistakes. We average 43,000 volume per day. Management is very nice and understandable for the most part, they can – more... be hard, but they do have a schedule to maintain. The co-workers are amazing for the most part. There are a few hard-heads, naturally, but I digress.
The hardest part of the job, is getting to work, honestly. Once I'm there I just starting going through the paces. Don't even get sore anymore. I really enjoy the banter of my co-workers and supervisors. It's hilarious. – less

Package Handler (Former Employee), Forest Park, GAApril 22, 2014
Pros: cool supervisors, free food
Cons: short breaks, temperature
i loved working at ups, a typical day at work varied,there good days and bad days.like any other job. i learned the about the work in warehouses and distribution centers and how difficult it can be sometimes.my management was cool,they could joke with you,and be a leader when need be. some of my co workers were cool,and some were not so cool.the hardest – more... part of the job was when the heaviest boxes would be just raining down off the belt in the trailor,and you get trapped like a avalanche.and you would have to dig yourself out,if everyone was busy.the most enjoyable part of the job was sometimes we would have pizza,it was just a laid back environment to work in. – less

A great place to work
Driver Helper (Former Employee), Houston, TXApril 20, 2014
Pros: meeting new people everyday
Cons: delivering packges in very bad weather
This is a great place to work. The days are long but the job is very rewarding. You meet new people every day and management is very helpful and easy to work with.
If you enjoy hard work and long hours this is the job for you.

Great Workout
Package Handler (Former Employee), Alexandria, VAApril 20, 2014
Pros: nice pay
I helped the package delivery driver with package delivery. It was a lot of walking and lifting, which leaves you a bit sweaty and toned. The driver I helped was nice but yet tough, but we worked well together.

Logistics Operations Supervisor (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAApril 17, 2014
Pros: the pay is good.
Cons: long hours and no work life balance
Very long days with little since of accomplishments. The minimum work day is 11 hours with sometimes no break. There is no work life balance and too little concern for change. Co workers are very involved but also very stressed. There are a great since of team work to make production needs. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people. Being able – more... to train and motivate employees to be the best workers and encourage wellness. – less

Great seasonal job
Driver Helper (Seasonal) (Former Employee), Myrtle Beach, SCApril 17, 2014
Pros: drive around and see the sights
Cons: extremely high expectations set by the company, almost impossible level
Started the day out every morning arriving at the center no later than 7:30 am and working no more than 10-12 hours a day (since it was during Christmas time) it was a fairly fast paced job. The driver was a nice guy, never came into contact with management since I was basically at the bottom of the totem pole.
