Strong solid company with proven record.
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLMay 2, 2016
This is a top company. No games, professionalism is the standard. Know what is needed and do it. No excuses work hard and you will do well. Not a place to do personal expression, The work is mostly achieving the company goals in time proven methods. Expression and creativity can be part of an upper managers day but only a part. This company knows what it is doing and will communicate its goals. If you want to help them the job can be rewarding.

Fun workplace, and high paced
Package Handler (Former Employee) –  Maysville, KYMay 1, 2016
Very fast paced. Usually get five trucks and have to unload the five trucks and a required time usually 3 hours and a half. I've learned how to read a package and determine where it is being sent and where it should go accordingly on the truck.

Driver Helper (Former Employee) –  Chico, CAApril 29, 2016
The hours were long, I really got along with the driver I was assigned to. He helped teach me how to organize packages. The opportunity for overtime was offered and the work day was labor intensive. However, I really liked to be outdoors and communicate with the different customers. Overall experience with this company was great.
Pros
Got to be outdoors

Hub Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Doraville, GAApril 29, 2016
I love UPS but the work is very physical even as a part of Management, and the hours are long and odd. I have some of the best team members who have become friends. The best part of the job is knowing that you changed someones behavior to make them better.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
Long hard hours, No work life balance

This job was a workout. It deals with alot of upper and lower body strengths. The climate can vary depending on what time of the year it is. It was very easy to make friends and you get a chance to work in both teams and individually.
Pros
4-5 hour shifts, 5 days a week
Cons
no breaks

If you need the money...
Truck Loader (Former Employee) –  Chelmsford, MAApril 28, 2016
They will get their work out of you. You will sweat until your whole shirt is wet. It's dark, dusty, messy but you're not alone most of the time. At least at the beginning they have a good trainer help you but eventually it turns to managers. Managers are the worst because even though they have been in your spot they still want you to drop everything and let your belt back up just to sign some papers at the other end of the building and trust me they will for your first month. Your coworkers will also hate you for a little bit as you're the new guy and they need to not only compensate for your slowness but also deal with any messes (eg box opening and spilling or a wall of boxes falling on you). One amazing thing though is this job can replace your gym membership.
Pros
A lot of people are nice and the pay is decent for them hiring anyone in the door way.
Cons
Some bad apples and lots of lifting

Great learning experience, challenges body and mind.
loader (Former Employee) –  MarylandApril 28, 2016
A typical day at work consists of coming in around 5 pm to go all out for 4 hrs, lifting and organizing boxes. Your arms, chest and legs might give out on you but this challenges your endurance in which you will have to keep pushing forward until the end. As you get use to the job atmosphere your body becomes stronger and you are able to do the work more efficient.

Part time offered little pay, Union was more trouble then it was worth .
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Windsor Locks, CTApril 28, 2016
Low pay. Few hours. Union wasn't helpful to me as a part timer. Benefits were good for the hours worked, but you cant make a living wage.

Waiting for better openings was dependent on seniority, so you could potentially wait a very long time for a decent job.
Pros
very physically demanding, fast paced.
Cons
few hours. low pay.
