Sorter/Loader (Former Employee) – Lenexa, KS – August 16, 2014
It's a part-time union job. The benefits are excellent and you are guaranteed a pay raise every year. It is a very physical job and it is like spending four hours doing circuit training. Some people take pride in their work and want to get everything done quickly, while others have the "I work by the hour, not by the item" mentality that can be found in any union shop. Doing everything quickly and correctly with a decent attitude will work in your favor.
Non-management advancement is awarded based on seniority
This location is based in a hotel. A typical day at work consists of providing shipping/ print job needs. I deliver packages to guest's rooms if desired. While employed at this establishment, I have learned to be more patient with others. The hardest part of this job is that the work load is solely placed on me. The most enjoyable part is work/personal life balance.
Package Handler (Current Employee) – Manhattan, NY – December 9, 2016
I love working for ups it's a great job where you can move up in the future if you become permanent and there is many other jobs that you can do other than package Handler or Driver helper I could see spending the rest of my life with UPS.
Company has its own payroll systems, so any previous payroll experience is of no use. They celebrate the mediocrity of tenured associates who have no education, drive, nor ambition to do anything else. All while monitoring your every move. Office cliques are rampant, due to most people having started working shortly after high school. Expect low pay with long hours - hopefully the extra overtime during peak season can carry your extreme boredom for the next 15-20 years before your next promotion.
UPS Package Handler (Former Employee) – Brockton, MA – December 9, 2016
UPS is a safe and steady workplace. Its has many reliable and dependable co-workers. The job is easy to understand but difficult to master. Overall, the job is manageable and doesn't into your school or your personal life.
It was very difficult to load 18 tracker wheeler but i did it. It's good to help one another at time I did not get help but I did It myself. The supervisors were not helpful there were boxes all over the place and if there is a fire hazard I would have to clime over all of them but I would clear my own path.
Sorter (Current Employee) – Pine Bluff, AR – December 9, 2016
The job is fast paced, and you learn new things everyday. The co-workers are nice and friendly, and the management is okay. The hardest part about the job is getting everything scanned and in the system within a two and a half hour time frame. The best part about the job, is the opportunity for growth within the company.
Bag Handler and Sorter (Current Employee) – Laurel, MD – December 8, 2016
There are many location that are not managed well including the warehouse I used to work for. The work load for the company is not properly distributed. There are good benefits that come with working with the company including discounts and annual paid leave
Administrative Support (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – December 8, 2016
The work always comes first before your life balance. Once you fill a position they do not let you advance until they find a replacement which could take a very long time. I notice those who make errors get promotions. The union comes first and they are highly paid drivers and full time hub workers. As for management be a specialist or a full time supervisor. Otherwise you become a manager and your really their work slave with a little more money. I wonder how they expect people to fill PT supervisor positions positions with so little pay. Most of all they tell you what you wanna hear and lie to you so that you stay at the company. Leadership is a total joke. If your in any type of PT supervisor, specialist, or admin position, and try to join the union just forget it its very hard to go drive to make the real money. They place so much work on you with little pay in management. If you were management in the 90s and are still there then your good. Otherwise management careers are a joke unless you move high up.
