Package Handler (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – June 27, 2017
Pretty much the way it is there, go in load at least 3 90 ft trailers. Probably get yelled at through it all, like you're in middle school. The pay is horrible which makes you sent to move up, but once you move up you became eligible to get fired so to say. Pretty much they befits make up for the lack of pay.
Driver Helper (Former Employee) – Stockton, CA – June 27, 2017
This job as a driver helper is a fast pace job to work along side the truck driver to deliver packages to customers. It can be very enjoyable if you understand it is a team effort and you do your part. The hardest part of the job is that it is very physical labor the whole shift and can get tiring. What i learned from this job is how to be efficient in a fast pace environment.
Morning Preloader (Former Employee) – Farmingville, NY – June 27, 2017
Not the bastion of fair work that it used to be. A brutal and demanding job, that is also thankless and exhausting. Benefits are still above and beyond the normal workplace, so for those with multiple doctor visits in their future, still the place to be at.
Package Center Supervisor (Current Employee) – Klamath Falls, OR – June 27, 2017
If you want to get anywhere within the company, prepare to get your own name out there to be noticed/promoted. If you wait on your direct supervisor/manager, you will be stuck in the same position forever.
Package Center Supervisor (Former Employee) – Klamath Falls, OR – June 27, 2017
Company will push you to achieve business goals which in turn, makes you a better supervisor. When you first start at UPS, the wage is not great and the hours are minimal. Be prepared to work hard and for very little pay. Best case scenario, keep another PT job to supplement your income while waiting to get a FT job at UPS.
Most employee's start off part time. Low hours and very low pay per hour.
Package Handler (Former Employee) – Watertown, MA – June 27, 2017
Worked the night shift for several months during peak. Although people say the holidays are the craziest time period, many of the things that I disagree with in terms of management and treatment of workers was a year round issue.
Package Handler (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – June 27, 2017
Good if you like working with your hands. The benefits are nice, and for the most part its a pretty laid back environment. Guaranteed raises are nice, and having a union at your back can have its benefits.
Benefits, guaranteed raises, possibility for upward movement.
Store Associate (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – June 27, 2017
Learned new customer service skills. More interactions with customers than I have had in the past. I love when we do drop off packages because those are just super easy and quick and the customers love how quickly they can go on with their days

The job was fast paced, there was a lot of work involved, however transportation was a challenge that late at night. pay could have been better- heard amazon has better work culture and environment where everyone is valued.
