Sales associate (Former Employee), Round rock – July 22, 2014
Cons: everything including management
Everything about this job was terrible. Starts at a low wage with many unfulfilled promises from your management team. The owner and managers only care about themselves and their customers and how much they make for their own pocketbooks. The owner drives a brand new Mercedes and dodge challenger and doesn't want to even give employees any benefits. DO – more... NOT APPLY HERE IF YOU RESPECT YOURSELF – less
Helping the driver scan and deliver packages during the Christmas season. Learned how to use the driver tablet to scan packages at point of delivery, obtaining signatures when required. Did not interact with management much but, UPS is a well ran company. Only worked with two different drivers and, both were great to work with. The weather and the occasional – more... dog were the worst part of the job. Not all dogs are bad though. Had a couple really nice ones on the route. The best part of this job was delivering package to customers at Christmastime so, you helped bring joy into their household by delivering Christmas gifts. – less
Slave labor with low pay but great fringe benefits.
Loader (Current Employee), Louisville Kentucky – July 21, 2014
Pros: excellent insurance, metro-college program
Cons: long wages, body damaging work, loud
Worked midnight shift. Hard labor with little pay. After 7 years I only make $260 a week. Hard to time second job or school during late November and all of December. All workers become full-time during this time because of peak season. Many will double-shift during December and it is very possible to make a quarter of your annual income because that – more... is the only time of the year to make money. It is a job where the benefits (Insurance, College program) greatly outweigh the income. – less
Dockworker and Package Handler (Former Employee), Memphis, TN – July 21, 2014
A typical you would come in and unload packages from trailer and load as well. The hardest part with this job were the weather conditions but after a while you will get use to it. The reason I loved this job was because of the stability and not much change!
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee), Greensboro, NC – July 20, 2014
Pros: great in great shape, know what they are expecting at all times, benefits
Cons: little advancement
If you want to get paid to go to the gym and play a giant game of tetris at work this is a great place to work. I had muscles hurt when I first started that I did not know I had. Great part-time job that will help you pay for college and offers free benefits for employees and family. (Union that is) management does pay for it but still affordable and – more... great coverage. If you don't have work ethic and drive you will learn it or you will quit. There is no middle ground here. I will be sending my kids to work here when they are of age as it is the perfect job to start off on the right track. Career growth is rough here because no one leaves (EVER) Good thing for the company not so great for the person wanting full time employment. It is made for the college student, someone wanting extra income or like I said gym work out while getting paid. – less

Truck load (Former Employee), East Petersburg, PA – July 20, 2014
I would go in at 3am, get my shipment papers so I knew where to load certain packages. I would load up to 4 trucks on a normal day, during busy times like holidays there was a possibility of us having to load more than 4 trucks. I worked with co-workers to achieve the goals for that day and my shift ended whenever I was accomplished with what was expected – more... of me, usually around 7-8am. If I or my co-workers needed help we were all there for one another as a team. I enjoyed the feeling of accomplishment and knowing I could count on coworkers and supervisors for any help I needed. The hardest part of the job was trying to load the trucks when it was getting closer to the holidays, we had lots of packages to load! – less
This job is more physical involves a healthy diet before going in to lift boxes.
Package Handler (Current Employee), Montgomery Alabama – July 18, 2014
Pros: 401k and health benefits
Cons: short breaks and low pay
A typical day at UPS consist of a steady and consistent pace as far as working is concerned. I seem to get along with all of my co-workers, we all have a great form of a teamwork effort. The management at UPS are professional and are strict as far as making sure everyone in my department are doing there part as far as completing assigned tasks. The – more... hardest part of this job deals with the seasonal change as far as working in the winter. In the warehouse it tends to reach a very cold temperature which causes my hands to become numb while lifting boxes. What I find most enjoyable about my job is when the company shows employee appreciation by sometimes grilling after we're are done for the day or even bringing snacks during break. This job has taught me a great amount of humility and has shown me an even clearer sense of responsibility. – less
Loved bringing a smile to customer's faces along with great co workers.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee), Salisbury, MD – July 18, 2014
A typical day consisted of well managed time and safety at all times this allowed all dead lines to be me in a safe and productive manner. I learned a lot of things about life through many of my customers. My co workers we easy to talk to and we all managed to be team players. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the different elements of nature – more... which no one has control of. The most enjoyable part of my day was when I would arrive to a customer's job or home and be greeted like a regular member of their family, but still on a professional level, meaning you want a cold glass of water or a hot cup of coffee. Things of that nature. I really enjoy dealing with people. – less
Dockworker (Current Employee), Kennesaw, GA – July 18, 2014

Their is nothing really difficult about the job. The best part is coming into work knowing that you have a great team and everything will get done in a timely – more... manner. – less
