Busy all day long. Learned how to clean a hospital kitchen. The management was very nice and easy to work for. My co-workers were fun to be around. The hardest part was cleaning the trays and the kitchen.

Local Sort Supervisor (Current Employee), Las Cruces, NMJuly 15, 2014
Pros: amazing employees, fast pace environment, multiple job functions throughout the company
Cons: stressful during peak season
Day to day routines are very repetitive but with different daily scenarios that require smart business ethics to effectively resolve problem situations. Although all company's may have hard times, there isn't a better group of people that I would choose to work with. Hard working, dependable and respectable (it's a two way street)

Operations Specialist (Current Employee), Lauderhill, FLJuly 14, 2014
Pros: company picnics, rewarded for safety and hard work by management, healthcare, the union
A typical UPS shift includes moving packages quickly throughout the building to get them to their proper destination on time. I've learned to manage my time effectively due to the tightly scheduled trailer routes. The hardest part of the job is communication with other employees. Thankful for the union and management keeping things in order. It is satisfying – more... knowing that my small contribution in the postal service goes a long way. – less

Not a pleasant place to work
Leave Representative (Current Employee), 10881 Lowell Ave Overland Park KSJuly 14, 2014
In a nutshell, as long as you are healthy then every thing is not bad but do not get sick or have a family with a medical condition and you work in Overland Park KS in the HR call center. You and your situation is treated different from the other UPS locations. If you file for FMLA is very unlikely that you will get it. I submitted 29 pages of medical – more... information for FMLA from 3 doctors and was denied. This has happened to many people in the call center. Also there have been so many individuals that have applied for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that have been with the company especially drivers for over 20 years and was told to apply and was told that they did not have another position for them and told them that they would do a 6 month search for another position for them (while they were not working and had no other incoming in because you cannot work on ADA which is something that they do not tell people when they inquire to their managers about it) then they terminate them. I will NEVER recommend UPS to anyone. – less

It was great work experience
Stocker (Former Employee), Aurora, COJuly 14, 2014
Pros: great job for right out of high school
Cons: unless you're in it for the long haul, there's few advancment opportunities.
The job consisted of lifting, sometimes heavy, packages and building walls with them from the front of the trailer to the back. The boxes have a bar code with a zip code on them that you need to scan so the system knows where it's going. You need to pay attention that the zip code is the one assigned to that trailer. The job was a workout so I enjoyed – more... that. The hardest part was dealing with the temperature regulation in the trailers; for instance if it was hot outside it would be hotter in the trailer, and if it was cold it would be colder. – less

Package handler (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCJuly 14, 2014
Pros: fun co workers, we eat sometimes
Cons: working conditions are terrible(heat, cold), work is extremely physical
Typical day at UPS is pretty straightforward, you come in and punch in, you go to your assigned area and do your assigned work and you punch out when your shift is over.management is there to provide us with any questions or concers we may have about anything work related and are always keeping us on our toes. Teamwork is one of the major qualities – more... taught to us because the only way we can acheive our long tem and short term goals is by usng teamwork. The hardest part of the job is the work iteslf cause it is heavy and non-stop and unrelenting. Your co-workers can be the reason your day goes by smooth and steady, if you have co-workers that are efficient and good to work with that have a good attitude and are good at their job it makes thing easier. – less

Receptionist, and Assistant manager
Receptionist and Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Buffalo, NYJuly 13, 2014
While working at the UPS store I learned a lot of things such as working on time sheets answering phones when customers had complains or just to tell us how we are doing I really enjoyed working there the customers were very friendly my typical day at the ups store started at 8 am I would work on time sheets working on the customers orders that needed – more... to be sent out, the owner of the ups store is one of the nicest guys that I have ever met he always had a simile on his face and one thing that he did was always make me feel like I was part of the family no matter what the hardest part of the job was when I first started I wasn't sure how to do the orders and I was scared that I was going to mess everything up but with the managers help I did excellent – less

Productive and enjoyable workplace with a great team of hard workers.
Supervisor (Former Employee), West Palm Beach, FL & Chicago ILJuly 12, 2014
Working at UPS was a very fun experience for me and I learned a lot while working there. I started out as a part-time package handler and when I left I was in charge of dispatching one of their 757 aircraft each night and supervising the loading and unloading operation. I managed 21 employees and ensured that they were always working safely and in accordance – more... with FAA,TSA and company policies. I am a very hard working person that always strives to be better and I was constantly being recognized for my achievements as supervisor. – less

Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee), miami, FlJuly 12, 2014
Pros: paid every friday
Cons: 15 minute break
The staff at UPS were all young so the work day was always a fun and breezy day no matter the work load. A typical day would consist of us joking and laughing while listening to the radio standing at our work station keying package descriptions until the shift was complete. The management team was sometimes hard on us for laughing and joking around – more... so much because we were still in a professional setting even though it was centered in the middle of a warehouse. I learned the importance of detail in this position because if a description was keyed and the weight of the package didn't match what its assumed to be, there was a consequence that resulted in being written up or being sent home for the day. The hardest part of the job was getting there on time. It was a major conflict because me and my older brother shared a vehicle and he didn't get off from his job until 5:00 with me having to be to work by 6:00 – less
