Challenging job

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Everything is rather disorganized, and you will not know whether or not you are working that day until you get a call in the morning. This job will tire your mind and legs.

Working at the UPS Store was not what I expected

Unfortunately, the UPS Store is a franchiser. I worked as a store associate for a year and management did not help me with any overwhelming rushes and orders.

Great driver and work environment

There is a lot of footwork however can be very rewarding with the ways that customers treat you. The management isn't very flexible and slow to respond. Driving rules are also strict but what you expect from a parcel delivery service

Good pay

Hard work but good pay. Depending on the season could be long hours but again real good pay. Being able to move up or go to a different position overall is great. In case doing the manual work is not for you anymore.

Stressful job, pays well, ankle injuries are very common.

Expect to work from 8am to 7pm, and during the season until 10pm. It's a very stressful job, especially when starting. Team leads usually help you and are there when you need them. If you have good feets and ankles and want to make money, this job is the way. It's hard, but you're getting pay well for it.

Pros

Pays well

Cons

Stressful, Hard labor, Some packages are 100 lbs+ and sometimes you got to take them up to the 3, 4, 5 floor with no elevator.

Sort Isle is Terrible

Out of all part time positions at UPS working in the sort isle is probably the worse experience. Do you enjoy being overworked, and basically being treated as a slave especially during peak season? Unless you are really good at being a sorter expect to be sent home early and thrown away by the company. Majority of people are slow and terrible at the job so that requires you to work ten times harder.Not only that but have fun being backed up by small sort since literally no one there can do their job correctly :). Also, the community there is kinda nice as well. But getting the job was a breeze, and no drug tests are required unless you're a driver.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Lack of communication, Terrible Management

Fast paced and highly energetic

You will work hard at UPS, real HARD, but they pay extremely well and the benefits are excellent. If you don't like pressure, especially the last 3 months of the year, you may want to consider something else. The month of December is the hardest I've ever worked, I had NO life outside UPS that month. But once again, I was very well compensated for my time.

Pros

Excellant pay and benefits

Cons

No life the month of December

Nothing Positive to say

Supervisors didn't have time for you! VERY unorganized Supervisor Training is a must for Woodbridge! Make promises that are not kept Training class is a joke, 1 week of class training, not once did we see a Supervisor. The class worked together to figure out how to complete online training

Pros

Enjoyed other Drives

Cons

Everything else sucked

Okay place to start

If you're fresh out of high school with free time, it's a decent place to work. The pay is alright. The hours are bad depending on what shift you choose, but during the holidays you get a lot of overtime

Really fast pace, tiring with no breaks. Managers are inconsiderate of employees and often offer little to no help while setting work expectations high

Pros

Weekly Pay

Cons

No breaks with a lot if constant working

Safety

They say safety is their main concern, but when those belts start running, and the workers get flooded with packages they suddenly forget they can stop the belts. Or the forget they have radios to speak to other departments to control the flow. The possibility of someone getting hurt EVERYDAY is 9.5/10. Also you will work one hour sometimes even less if they choose to send you home that early just to save money for their bonuses.

It’s good

Great job and pay, really easy to catch on to the work you have to learn. Your work day is pretty simple, depending on how hard and quickly you catch on. If you love working alone it's even better! It requires great organization skills and you obviously need to dress according to the weather. If you're a people person this job is a great fit. It's a job you'll want to keep forever!

Pros

Good place to work

Good job to have while searching for a career. While it may not be the most satisfying job, your customers really appreciate you and the work you do really is not very difficult.

Say goodbye to your family!

Long, stressful hours, but rewarded by good pay. Expect to work 6 days per week at 10 - 14 hours, each day. Leadership is all about creating fear and intimidation to make sure you get the job done. There isn't much of a teamwork culture. If you enjoy hard work and being able to perform as an industrial athlete, then this is the place for you. Make sure your immediate family members know that your availability at home will be minimal (Sundays only!)

Pros

Pay

Cons

No family time
