I've worked as an unloader for 6 months (which is NOT when you get the benefits, it's when you get a bonus of around $200 to $250, that's it). Some supervisors are good and some not. The good ones give us acknowledgments, honesty, and cooperation. The bad ones do the opposite and give less care about what the package handlers are going through, they just want to get things done since they are so miserable just like I was. There is dust all over the place. We all came home with black mucus and severe allergies from the dust. I sent a lot of feedback the the hub, telling them that they had to make a lot of improvements in that nasty facility. I have suffered countless bruises on my legs and arms. I left eye was bleeding during the last day at work due to an accident involving doing a wrongful thing with another employee (tossing long and heavy packages). This job is very physical, short hours, noisy enough to damage your ears, dusty, very rough, uncomfortable, unsafe, and plain miserable. UPS needs to put money into making their facilities better and safer.
