Pros: Flexible hours, business savvy, always occupied
Cons: Shortness of staff
A typical day at work could vary any day of the week at The UPS Store. One day you may see a large print job such as making 500 business cards or several banners needed for an event. Another day you may see several antique glass pieces needing to be packed and shipped to Germany. Another would be on the phone for hours trying to settle a damaged package dispute. The list goes on and on. However, this broad array of tasks that could occur each day has allowed myself to prepare for anything, and understand how to organize work in a proficient and timely manner. I have also been fortunate enough to work with some of my really close friends, three of which being my friends since childhood. This makes a huge difference in the workplace as far as entertainment, communication, and task cohesion go. The most challenging aspect of my job actually goes hand in hand with the most enjoyable aspect. When starting the job I found it overwhelming when being bombarded with several different tasks at once. In time, I began to adapt and find ways to work proficiently. Now that I have developed competence on each task, I really enjoy the since of accomplishment when completing several tasks in a professional manner.
