Work you like a donkey
Package Handler (Former Employee) –  Springfield Gardens, NYSeptember 23, 2017
If you want to try and become a driver or get a management position at UPS then this is one way in otherwise for the amount of work you have to do this job is not worth it. You will work a maximum of 20 hours a week. Anything over 5 hours is considered overtime and if you work OT they will send you home the next day. Also they change the shift times. When I started it was 4AM then it changed to 2:30AM. Also, they give you one 10 minute break and you don't receive any benefits until one year of service.
Pros
Various shift times, union job
Cons
Low amount of hours, physically demanding

Lead Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Richmond, CASeptember 23, 2017
work else where. Its a cut throat industry where management is run by investors. Management likes to break their employees and when they get injured blame it on the employee ( and I was management)

Part-time Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Parkersburg, wvSeptember 22, 2017
Very much concentrated on cost savings, producing good results. Good benefits and pay. Tough place to work during Christmas season long hours. If you are willing to work hard then this can be a successful career.

Okay place to work
Seasonal employee and rehired (Former Employee) –  txSeptember 22, 2017
Working at UPS was okay when I was younger. It is a fast paced environment with okay pay. During the holidays it is very stressful because we get an abundance of packages and have smaller delivery windows.

Loader/Unloader (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYSeptember 22, 2017
Very fast paced and little room for error. Very hot working conditions. need to be able to load at least 7 packages per minute, harder than it sounds. Pay does not equal the amount and intensity of job duties.

Fast pace, high volume, high expectations
PACKAGE HANDLER (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXSeptember 22, 2017
A typical day consists of constant working, moving packages at different rates. the weight unevenly switches as you handle the packages. You deal with packages that are worn and needs repair. Breaks are giving randomly during the sort which cause many people to get stressed out. You only work on average 4 to 5 hours a day but the work makes it feel twice as long.
Pros
Allowed to work more hours
Cons
Short breaks, has to work even harder to get an average extra 2 hours

Expect to Work Hard
Safety Compliance Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Halethorpe, MDSeptember 21, 2017
UPS is a great place to work depending on your age. It all starts off as part-time with times to pick up more hours. Low pay for new comers but good pay if promoted. Great job if your going to college they love that. Its hard physical work but ok if you pace yourself. Your open to the elements so expect to layer in the winter. They recognize people with UPS gear and food on the regular. Nothing but a relaxed environment instead of stuck up professional.
Pros

Slandering is OKAY here...
Customs Brokerage Representative (Current Employee) –  Auburn, WASeptember 21, 2017
Management doesnt care about work gossip that effects peoples lives. If you are the bosses favorite and that person harasses you, management does not care. They WILL find a reason to let YOU go instead of the culprit even if she has been talked to about her attitude. NOT a good company at all.
