Loader/Unloader (Former Employee) – Toledo, OH – April 25, 2017
UPS was a really fun job not only did o get to learn how the ups system worked I got to get a killer work out also. The building the loaders work in they keep very cool in the summer and warm in the winter witch is great. Only down side is low hours.
One of the hardest jobs in all of the United States.
Package Handler (Former Employee) – Chelmsford, MA – April 25, 2017
Great union to join, but most non-union workers (management) had no idea how to make the job better; only worse. Many workers were subjected to verbal abuse by hypocritical supervisors and even inefficient managers. The union would usually only help those who had worked there for 5+ years, and the payroll after taxes and FICA were deplorable... below poverty conditions. I only recommend this job if you're planning to use the fairly decent benefits and do not care about making money.
A great workout, great coworkers, and lenient conditions
Time constriction to load & unload, flawed payment system, and dangerous working conditions.
A typical work day consisted of loaded and unloading freight as well as cleaning. I learned time management while working at UPS. The hardest part of the Job would be Working more than 12 hours during a busy season and slowing down to 5 hours or less a day
Driver Helper (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – April 25, 2017
I enjoyed this job it was real laid back. just delivering boxes, getting signatures, and being on the lookout for dogs from time to time. i recommend this job for anyone looking to make a little extra money over the holidays.
At UPS you find out what route you will be on then check the truck load. Delivery the package to the home and most it is dark before we get done. Sometime you had leave it at the gate which is a problem if you someone to sign for it. One can easy get hurt running at night. The managers was great,the place were always busy.

I say this now. If you're a college student and need a job, this is perfect for you. The benefits are outstanding. If not, Keep looking. On the morning shift, You are simply doing 6 hours worth of work in 4 hours.
