Pre-Loader and Driver helper (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – December 6, 2013
Just getting as much volume out as we can its a team effort we are expected to run 7,000 articles per hour. Learned how to work at a fast pace and efficiently the equipment wasn't always your best friend but work smarter not harder is key.
UPS is a very good place to work. The hours are excellent, the pay is fantastic, and the co workers are really kind and funny. The hardest part is the heavy lifting and moving packages which, lets be honest, isnt very difficult
If you're waiting for a delivery that is anywhere near the window that UPS provides, you are going to be sadly disappointed. They do not adhere to that window in any respect whatsoever. It is my experience that they deliver their packages when they see fit. Mostly as late as an hour and a half from the last time it was suppose to be delivered. Do not use UPS under any circumstances if you need the package delivered on time.
Package Handler (Former Employee) – Chelmsford, MA – December 6, 2016
Getting hired for the holidays in a part-time position is normally a great way to make some extra money for the season, but the management is quick to let you go over the smallest of injuries, even if you don't need a lot of time off for it.
The shifts are short, and you're kept so busy that the whole shift actually flies by, which is kinda great. And the other seasonal workers and belt supervisors are friendly and really great to work with. However, management above the level of belt supervisors don't care as much about anyone beneath them, aren't easy to get along with, or work for.
For extra money during the holidays, it can be a blessing, but unless you've paid off union dues and have the union to help you, the job may not even last until christmas.
A average day at work was productive and fast paced. I learned new skills that i didn't previously know. Management was fair and i had a great relationship with the management team. The hardest part of the job may have been lifting very heavy packages. The most enjoyable part of the job was the pay that i was able to receive to help feed me and my family.
Database Developer / Software Integration (Former Employee) – LA to San Diego – December 5, 2016
Had the opportunity literally work with hundreds of companies and work with just about every database out there. During a typical day, I would drive over 200 miles to work with many of UPS' high-end clients.
Data Entry/3rd/Night Information Services (Former Employee) – Addison, IL – December 5, 2016
Data entry required perfection; less than 1% error and meeting a daily production quota. For a responsible and reliable person, this is a great organization for employment. Flexibility (working 3rd shift) was my initial draw to this position, but all employees seemed so helpful and pleasant that I enjoyed two years working through a placement agency as a temporary hire. Except for the level of pay, temporarily-hired employees were treated as part of the group and were invited to partake in UPS events. Because UPS prides itself in speed and accuracy (for tracking shipments) the employee has to meet accuracy standards (both quality & quantity quota) and a willingness to work longer hours in order to complete daily workload.
Work flexibility as UPS offers 3 shifs.
No leniency for those who are unable to be on time & meet the workload quota
I hate to complain about this job. I was young and in great shape. They pushed people so hard all the older guys quit. I saw a few people pass out. theyre benifits were great but it was a long term part time position
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Oxford, MS 38655 – December 3, 2016
The work is what you would expect, handling a wide variety of packages and shipping needs. Specific store has no seats for customers or employees, take that as you will. I made an effort to be nice to customers, and it was noticed.
Great working enviornment, the printing company that promotes productivity
Retail and Shipping Manager (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – December 3, 2016
A typical day at work is going into the office with mind to work hard and get results. Saving the company money and creating revenue is the primary objective. I've learned that, management is not about telling others what to do, but about motivating that individual to accomplish their duties at work. My co-workers are hard working and committed to the vision of the company. We all work together as a team to accomplish this every day, we are hear at work. The hardest part was creating those ideas and getting the target audience to appeal to us. We maintain a
We have company outings, such as Laser Tag, and bowling to create teamwork for the staff
