Employee (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – November 20, 2017
As a Sales Associates I play a important role in retail establishments as they increase customer satisfaction and generate higher company revenues by helping clients purchase products. The most successful duties at a typical day of work include handling cash transactions, placing items on shelves, creating attractive displays, answering to customer inquiries, and reporting sales to managers. Essential skills include sales orientation, customer service, organization, teamwork and communication. There were no difficult parts to my job, but the most enjoyable time was interacting with customers.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – November 20, 2017
UPS warehouse associate is not what I would call a desirable job. Benefits are good but the hours are not, typical start time is 3 am. I would recommend UPS to a morning person who would like to become a UPS driver.
Sales Associate/Notary Public (Current Employee) – Berkeley, CA – November 20, 2017
The managers were mean and hypocrites. They gave us no benefits, even those working 79+hours bi weekly. They do shady things that are definitely against the law such as writing us personal checks instead of giving us our paystubs and an unpaid luch with no breaks. There is no opportunity there and it's unfair for the workers to be overworked and mistreated. No paid lunch, as a matter of fact, they make employees take it off their time sheet. The pay wage is non negotiable. They promised a negotiable pay raise if you become a notary for them, but it was a 50 cent increase no negotiations.
Productive workplace; all too often detached from work life balance.
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Tennessee – November 20, 2017
Many times one can find themselves in a good working situation at UPS; however, work-life balance tends to fall by the wayside in terms of having to help other sorts or simply by "having to do it all" by oneself to achieve any adequate results in management. Difficult environment to be mentally sustained in.
My review ratings may not have been expected due to my current living situation at the time. Was fresh out of high school had another job as well as full time school work and still living on my own independently.

Working at UPS was definitely a growing experience. You are constantly challenged to adapt to different situations in a fast-paced manner. You learn to get a strong sense of time management and teamwork as you work together to get all the trucks ready for the morning.
Human Resources Consultant (Contractor) (Current Employee) – West Columbia, SC – November 19, 2017
The position is very demanding. A very face pace environment. I have the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people. I travel a lot. The hardest part of the job is making changes at a second notice. You are given a small amount of time to react to changes. The great part of the job is that You are feel that You are making a difference. It is not a boring very challenging.
Making Your own judgement decisions.
Changes made too often to react on a short notice.
