the average starting salary for a partimer is 8.50-9-50 per hour. Not sure about bonuses but benefits inculude medical, dental and glasses and pharm. plus there is a earn and learn program where if you apply, they will reimburse your college tution. Not sure if it is all of it. As a far as travel, if you mean business trips that only refers to full-time magmt, not part timers. ---hope this helps.

Union rates for pt is $8.50 for unskilled & $9.50 for skilled. FT salary for drivers depending on the union usually start at $14.10 an hour. Depending on the district: PT supervisor's usually start around $1200-$1400 a month depending on the district, FT supervisor's vary, depending if it's non operation or operational. Usually $48,000 a yr for non operational. FT supervisor's get an MIP (stock), how much depends on the overall success of their department for the year. The end of year bonuses for PT or FT supervisors are a joke, they are heavily taxed and don't justify the amount of hours you put in.

What do you like best about working at UPS? Are there any great perks or special treats for employees?

In the beginning management was the type of company I desired to work in "recognition for being a great employee", 12-15 years later everything turned ridiculas. Great workers in any department were overlooked on promotions due to HR hiring strategies. Hiring unprepared minorities over experienced employees, promoting friends, transfering reputable coworkers for slackers, making dedicated employees do all the dirty work for the slackers, broken promises...and so on. There is no special perks unless you stay in the union, don't listen to any of the lies.

for package car drivers--pay is a two year progression where you will then reach top rate at 28.17/ hour.

What do I like best for working for UPS?

For me it is benefits. I have been here for 30 years so I am a little biased.

If you want to be a package car driver, it helps if you have connections. If you want to be a package handler--loading or unloading--it helps but definitely not necessary. If you show an eagerness that you want to work, then your in.

The only ones that I've seen state that it was not worth it are the wimps.

Good old fashion hard work. Not something we are used to anymore in this country. It's too bad.

At the end of the day no one, and I mean NO ONE will take care of you and your family like UPS. What other job will get you to $70,000 per year, full medical for your family (with little deductible), a pension, discount cars, etc., etc., etc. When you compare the overall package, not even the UAW can compare.

Hate to say this Upser Family. It's easy for you to say what you did, because you're obviously a full-timer just like me, and making that kind of money. What you have to understand is that most of the bloggers here are part time making only 8.50 an hour.

When I started before 1977, everybody was making the same pay which was 6.50 an hour. That is nothing now, but at that time, it was a fortune because minimum wage was 2.00 an hour. Then in 1982 the union sold us out and introduced the two-tier wage. What is absolutely appalling is that the 8.50 starting rate is the same now than it was back in 1982. Heck you can go to McDonalds and almost make that. You can work your own hours and work in air conditioning.

If it's any consolation to the would-be applicants, I will say, the working conditions are a lot better than it was when I started. Back then, we worked our asses off and we didn't have fans in each truck,and worse, we didn't have ten minute breaks. We use to work straight through the shift. During the summer, people used to drop like flies because of the heat. We also didn't have trainers that spent several days with you and taught you how to load. My supervisor worked with me for about 10 minutes and basically said, "okay, there you go, I will check back with you in a about an hour."
I guess what I am saying is fulltimers and part timers? YOu are comparing apples and ornanges.

Now, I do have a comment for Rik. If you have been there for 10 years, why haven't you gone into driving so you can make that 70+grand a year. Or at least bid on the article 22 jobs that come up now and then.

I agree, though I don't think UPS even needs to go that high. At $15 per hour they would get people standing in line now days.

Back then guys dropped going to college because it wasn't worth it. You made more money driving than being an Accountant, Engineer, etc.

[QUOTE who="What other job will get you to $70,000 per year, full medical for your family (with little deductible), a pension, discount cars, etc., etc., etc.
Yes, but how long does it take to go from part-time package handler to a full-timer making $70,000+? If it takes 10 years, how is that worth it? This of course is quite subjective and depends upon the individual.

For me, I'm coming out of the CA real estate industry where I'm used to 6 figure salaries. But due to the market crash these past couple years, and having a family of 4 now, I need to change careers. I'm considering UPS, but I'm concerned about not making jack for several years ($10/hr is great for a student perhaps...but not for those who have little mouths to feed, a mortgage, etc...).

To me, the consideration is "Will this result in a livable wage within a reasonable period of time?" $70K is decent in CA, but not if it means having to wait 4+ years. I may as well wait out this market if that's the case.

I am a hard UPS worker, supervisor for 7 years, but what frustrates me is trying to manage office politics. I am currently trying to relocate into Portland for school and to get married, and I have not been able to get the people at my hub to get this done in a timely manner. Is there anyway to "pull" my transfer through from the other side? Would contacting a HR or mgmt person in Oregon help?

Edmund Fournier in Pensacola, Florida said: Hello, this question is for 30 year upser. How did you get your start with the company?

Actually it was a stroke of luck. I was in college and I was eating lunch with a classmate and I asked him what he did for a living. He said he worked in HR at UPS. He told me the starting rate was 6.50 an hour. I almost choked on my food. This was 1977. at the time minimum wage was like 2.50 an hour, so 6.50 seemed like a fortune. It would be like minimum wage now at 7.50 an hour and the starting rate would be 22.50 an hour.
Anyway, I asked him--more like demanded him to get me on at UPS. The rest is history. I have done just about every job there, from unloading to loading to driving the brown trucks. The only thing I haven't done is drive the big rigs. I am now a sorter and an address correction clerk.

I've been a PT package handler for several years, and am interested in becoming a package car driver. Can someone please explain the procedure to me in detail? I've signed the bid, but I'm concerned about the "UPS road test." I drive a car with a manual transmission. How do I prepare to go from a small car to a package delivery truck and pass the road test? What criteria must be met to pass the road test and how do I find what those criteria are?
Thanks for any advice you can offer.

The road test is nothing to be worried about. If you know how to drive a stick, you're halfway there. When driving a package car you will just have to be more aware of your surroundings. Just relax. If you are still somewhat skittish, what I would do is rent a truck from one of hose hauling services. They are about the size of a package car. This will give you a feel of the size of the truck and how to maneuver with it.
Also you will need to take a drug test and you will also need a chauffer's license, so if you dont have one you will need to study up for the written test.
As far as being a driver if you are good with directions and are detailed oriented you should do fine. You will have a supervisor with you for the first three days to show you the route, etc. Good Luck

Tony, According to the new contract signed in December, if you were hired after that, you yourself will not get any medical benefits for the first year and another six months for your family. Inother words, it will take a year and a half from the time you were hired for your family to be covered.

If you were hired before the contract was signed you should have coverage for you and your family. There is a copay of about 10-20 dollars for medical treatment. The best thing to do is go to you local HR to find out what your benefits are.

If you were hired after the contract signing, you might want to consider going into supervision. I am assuming you will get medical coverage since you will now be in management. If you have a good work history even after six months, ie no attendence or tardiness problems, a good worker, well liked by your peers and supervisor etc, you shouldn't have any problems getting a supervisor job. If you apply and get interviewed for a sup. position, have a plan on what you will say. In other words tell them your plans such as you plan to stay because UPS is a solid company and there is opportunity to move up, etc. I am not sure how much of a raise you will get.
Hope this helps and good luck.

To Tony - My son has been working for almost 1 year as P/T package handler here in CA. What he has learned is that while UPS says P/T employees are eligible to full benefits - you must work 80 hours in the prior month to get those benefits and employees are only guaranteed 3.5 hours a shift so you never meet that 80 hours except during holiday rush. No sick leave, no medical etc. Its a very deceptive lure to potential employees. He'll complete his year and look elsewhere to make more money for less back breaking work.

I am currently 18, and started as a pt package handler when I was 16. After 1.5 years of employment, I became a pt supervisor for the operations, and I recently got promoted to an Operations Management Specialist. I am currently making appr $66000 a year, with no post secondary education. I have full benefits, and work out of an office with great people in a team environment. I couldn't ask for more. Anyone looking at working here, show some motivation, ask questions, and learn a few things. You'll be surprised at the amount of career options made available to you.

Hi, i'm currently looking ahead to the future for a career and i've heard nothing but good things about UPS. I have 9 months left in the military which will complete my 6 year tour. I'll be moving back to upstate NY where I will live and i'm thinking about applying to UPS. I am a crewchief on tankers and work extremely hard. Taking care of multi-million dollars worth of equipment everyday and being in charge of ensuring the success of the mission. I was wondering if UPS looks kindly upon men and women with prior military history. Trying to get as much information as possible while doing my research. I'm currently deployed but will check back to see if there are any responses as soon as I can. Thanks for all the information i've ready already.

i started working at ups straight out of high school i loved it in the beginning i didn't mind the hard work i started in Oct of 05 well once Christmas was over i was given my own pull which became a 5 truck pull with the last truck having a extra car on back all of which carried bulk stops and i received NOOO HELP for months i was up to 475 packages per hour. everyday i was left on a island to deal with the it myself and my supervisor was lazy and so was the part time sup i got no help what so ever yet everyday i finished on time. I even hurt myself a few times with the crazy pace then it got to the point where everyday they would blame for the problems on my belt if u have 5 bulk stops (AND ONE WENT TO A MALL) come all at once for 5 different trucks you tell me how you would get it done. Like it was very common to see 1 of 30 1 of 50 1 of 70 and on a bad day all at once which would be cool if like the 1 of 30 wasnt footlocker boxes and car parts and other random things that didnt fit on shelves. No one would help me even when there were ppl on the belt with 3 trucks who often had chances to just stand around my supervisor would blame me to deflect his failings all the suits would wonder whats going on and they all would promise me help that i never ever got so oneday i just stop going i couldnt take it any more this was 3 years ago and after i quit they had to hire 2 people to do my pull and my supervisor was demoted and my boss since then has been transferred. So i tried to re apply online because i loved my job so i tried to re apply today online since some things have changed. I just was fed up with being taking advantage of it now says im not eligible for rehire lol I feel like if i were just on another belt or anything my experience would have been great but i guess i didnt have that luck

30 year upser...

I just thought you would be the best to ask this question to... perhaps someone can help me with this... My father just recently left UPS in order to take care of two of his children, my mother was absent during this time. He did leave on good terms, and had been working for UPS for the past 15 years. Well he and my mother have just divorced and she left my father with nothing. He really needs to get back to work, but when he went back to UPS his former supervisor told him that UPS had a no rehire policy. My father has been a shop sup for years. He realizes he will not be able to find another job that pays as well as UPS, esp since he does not have a college education. Is there really a no rehire policy in effect or is that guy just angry that dad left. If anybody can please help me with this answer i would be grateful... thank you

I can give u my experience. I have been w/ UPS for 4 years and really can't complain. I was hired as a seasonal driver and worked my butt off. I called my supervisor and would ask who needed help after i was done with my route every day, yes every day. Remember the goal was to remain an employee after peak season was over and decisions were made on who to keep and who to let go. I also inquired about Management and after one year i was promoted to full time management. My offer was more than adequate and after 4 years, I am grateful to UPS for the oppurtunity. I am also a member of the military and when called to active duty which I was UPS payed me a differential while I was away. Upon return I was given my exact job back. Full time Management also receive a half month bonus and MIP. MIP can be as much as 2 1/2 x's your monthly salary in stock every year. If you are willing to work hard, the oppurtunity is there.

You have to work one full calender year before you to start getting benefits and a year and a half for your dependents.
In other words, if you started today, you wont get benfefits until one year later to the day. Good Luck

lori

benefits aren't based on hours, It is based on the calender year. So if you work one year, not matter how many hours worked, after the one year anniversary of your hire date, you will be eligible for benefits
Once you are qualified for benefits, you wont have to pay into the insurance. The only out of pocket expences you would have is co pay which is minimal, which is usually anywhere from 10-30 dollars a visit.
Yes all medical benefits are covered. The only thing you may have to pay a large percentage service is your visual--eye glasses, eye exam. For some reason this service sucks.

Union dues for a new hire is 20-25 bucks a month a believe. They are taken out of your pay check.
You will have to pay an initian fee which is I think 500 dollars, I may be wrong on the amount. These are also taken out of your paycheck.

Hope I've answered your question, Lori. :)

Lori, unfortunately that was negoiated in our last contract. I say unfortunately because that is what the company wanted and the union caved. Believe me I was totally against it as were a lot of upsers. Neverhteless the contract passed and we are stuck with it until the next contract which will be 2013.
I am not sure why the iniation fee is high except to say it is a Teamster decision not UPS. Supposedly, they use it for processing fee which I think is B S.

Hi nygiant
This is what I wrote to somebody earlier this week regarding this same question.

Let me say should you get on at UPS, you will not get any medical benefits for yourself for the first year. If you have a family, you will not get beneifts for them for another six months. In other words, it will take a year for you to get coveravge, a year and a half to get your family covered. Good Luck
As far as starting salary, you will start out at 8.50 an hour. In ninty days it goes up to 9.50 an hour.

okay.....for others who are reading this blog, besides dishonesty, stealing, and attendence, other reasons one could get fired is failing to follow instructions--when a supervisor tells you to do something and you dont do it, cussing a supervisor out and, misloads. Usually if it is for misloads you go through the grievance process which is a verbal warning, warning letter, suspension and finally termination.
