UPS Package Handler (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 11, 2017
I spent my day unloading and loading packages onto trucks to leave for delivery. I scanned and organized each package and then loaded them on the truck in the correct order for the drivers to easily deliver.
I enjoyed working for the company because the management gave us the tasks and entrusted us to complete them on our own accord.
The hardest part of the job was making sure the trucks were organized correctly. If we did not do this correctly then it would make the job harder for the drivers which would slow them down and throw off the schedule.
I am very hardworking and detail oriented when it comes to jobs and tasks like this so the job was enjoyable for me because I enjoy having the responsibility of making sure each item was properly placed and each task completed well.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Paw Paw, MI – March 23, 2017
I would arrive to work half an hour to and hour early, clock-in, begin unloading boxes from the line and placing them on their designated pallets for their designated departments, afterwards pallets were down-stacked and groceries were placed on carts and then taken to the sales to be stocked.
STOCKER (Current Employee) – Pennsylvania – March 18, 2017
On a typical day I get yelled at for things outside my power to control. Teamwork is a must but half the team will hate each other. Management will constantly babysit you and try to control what you do throughout the day, even if it doesn't make sense. Working as an Unloader at Wal-Mart is hands down the worst job I have ever had.

For anyone familiar with warehouse work, it isn't anyone different from any where else. What sets it apart from other warehouses is HIGH production standards and decent compensation. The 3-4 day work schedule is really nice. However, expect extremely slow winters. I'm talking like less than half days, and sometimes no work at all for entire weeks for a period of 1-3 months. You can save for that in the summer when there's overtime available but you'll really screw yourself if you don't.
Good pay, great people, great work/life balance
TERRIBLE slow periods, very high production standards

Currently volunteering (Former Employee) – Mount Pleasant, MI – January 1, 2017
I loved working for UPS it was a great paying job. Not much to say about this job besides management could be worked on. The reason I say but about this job was, because of management. One of the assistant managers hated me and had it out for me. Everyday I would walk in and she would be right there to critize me and everything I did. Eventually she drove me so far as to arguing with her and a mutual leave.
Picker (Former Employee) – Kent, WA – December 8, 2016
It was a great place to work. There were many benefits and the pay is fantastic. However if you're not good at making friends you can dislike it there pretty quickly as with the position, you are by yourself about 7/8ths of the time and there is no music, and you can't bring your own so it's constant machinery and alarms the entire time you're there.
Great pay, many opportunities to move up, many benefits
Long hours, lots of standing, (night shift) sleep all day work all night rinse and repeat until you get your days off.
