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.

You meet alot of people and get great experience in a warehouse environment. I would do the preloading job again if i could. The company also has great benefits that come along with it.

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.

Package Handler (Current Employee) –  Lenexa, KSSeptember 21, 2017
Management tells you time and time again to work safe. When the work area is not safe, they get upset when you aren't working fast enough. Packages are thrown and stepped on. It's seems that the only goal is to get packages loaded as fast as possible, no matter what happens to the employee or the packages.
Pros
Benefits and tuition reimbursement

Fast paced. High volume of calls.
Customer Management Associate (Former Employee) –  Newark, DESeptember 21, 2017
Customer call load exceeded existing number of customer service associates. This did improve necessary skill sets to tolerate and calm irate customers, improve organizational skills and multi tasking abilities.
The manager in our group was very knowledgeable and quick to assist customers when calls became backed up in the queue.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the team spirit of my co-workers.
Pros
Paid vacations.
Cons
Healthcare.

High Stress but good for short term
Package Handler (Former Employee) –  DFW Airport, TXSeptember 21, 2017
A very high stress environment, very poor management.

but,,,,, if you are good at looking ahead and planning what you need to do this is good for a short term position. This job offers time to look for something more.
Pros
Time to find a better position
Cons
terrible management

You will dream about packages
Industrial Engineering Co-op Student (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCSeptember 20, 2017
With E commerce, UPS revolves around consumers and businesses. We knew when a new Harry Potter book came out or when everyone would send flowers to their moms for Mother's Day because it would be something to plan for. Best thing was if you tried something new and it didn't work, you could try something different the next day without lasting difficulty.
Pros
Varied opportunities
Cons
Would drive past three other UPS locations to get to mine, everyday.
