UPS underpays it's package handlers after 30 years. I worked for 6 years in 1988 to 1994 and I started off at $9 an hour. I felt I was underpaid then, and the pay has only increased $1 to $2 more over time. It requires unloading tractor trailers, extremely fast paced, attention to detail, 5 hours of work non-stop. Constant bending and lifting if both arms and legs.

If I was in charge of whatever operations of this company, I would lean more towards giving people proper instructions and training along with a pat on the back for a job well done. Meaning gift cards and little things like that to boost morale. Also instead of firing someone on the spot for doing something wrong, inform them that they did something wrong and then correct them and give them a chance to do it correctly themselves the second time around. I'd say care more about the people that work for you than the packages that come through the buildings. Only because we're the ones that load and deliver the packages. If we don't load or deliver the packages then the company doesn't get paid. Instead of making it about the numbers make it about the people.

The interview was quick , laid-back , straight to the point. It was so smooth I didn’t think I got the job but they told me I was hired towards the end of the interview. They ask you questions like “ Are you a smoker ?” “ Can you multi-task ?” “ Do you have reliable means of transportation * no shared vehicle * ?” “ Have you ever personally been in a UPS store before ?”
