Awesome place to work. A people company. Family like environment as company is mostly employee owned. Excellent benefits with promotion advancement from within first. A company that has been around for more than 100 years and is positioned for another 100 years financially.


great company match 401k plan, yearly bonus for management.

Physical hard work, good benefits, pay is ok. High risk for injuries

A typical day as a package handler, you come in early, punch in and go straight to your task for the day; preloading or unloading. If you have no experience working in a very physical job, then you have a 50/50 chance you won't like it or make it your first week.Orientation was a week long and I feel like they went over too many things over and over. They even made us do a quiz to pass in order to start working which was odd and unnecessary for a mindless labor job.Work culture looks whatever, everyone is busy working and there's no time for talking. Hardest part of the job is the work itself. They expect you to move at a fast rate unloading or preloading at times very heavy bulk packages and most of the time by yourself, increasing your chances of serious injuries. I recommend this job for strong experienced labor people looking for a decent part time pay with great health benefits, and career opportunities. However I really don't recommend this job at all unless you're willing to become a driver. The warehouse work at UPS is very hard on your body. It makes Amazon warehouse work look nicer compared to UPS.


Great Health Benefits, Decent Pay, 401k & Pension, Union

What is the best part of working at the company?Pay is low for the first year and you don’t fly. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Salary for the first year and training with management pilots since they are not union and company hires them to breath down your nick. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Toxic and not healthy. It’s stressful to commute to work and back home. What is a typical day like for you at the company?This question is nonsense because the work environment is not like a typical day in the office.

UPS was consistent 95% of the time, most nights I knew exactly what to expect.

Unloading of all Mail packages inside Semi trailers directly onto conveyor belt to be sorted and loaded onto smaller delivery Trucks. I learned the processes utilized by UPS to make sure the right packages get delivered to the right residence on time and in pristine condition. The managers were great to work with. I didn't really experience much culture in this particular job. The hardest part of the job is lifting the 100+lb packages. My most enjoyable part of the job is the people who I have built a great working relationship with.


Good pay rate


Late night early morning shifts

Fun work sometimes

Working in the warehouse is hard work. It pays well be the environment is very pressurized and could be toxic depending on who was supervising. The supervisors shifted like musical chairs and that made it hard to work around because everyone is so different to work with.

A typical work day is very simple you do the job you are given you have a 10 minute break and then you leave on the depending on the day and it's hard work but it's simple and the work environment and the employees are very good and helpful


You could bring one or they had vendmachines


You took a 10 minute break everyday or if you need a break doing work you could

Not worth the time you put in

Mandatory overtime. High school atmosphere. No work/life balance. You have to be friends and go out with higher up management to be promoted. Not worth the time you have to put in.

Good Luck

This place needs a lot of work. There was no proper training given by management so you have to learn as you go by yourself. There was a lot of manipulation from the owner in order to try to get what they want and will expect you to bend over backwards and drop everything for the store. Late pay checks and no apologies as. Expected everyone to work full time even when they agreed to hire at part time. Unprofessional environment with employees and customers. Constantly understaffed due to poor hiring system. The only good thing was occasionally the store was completely empty all day and customers sometimes pay for lunch or give gifts.


Free lunch occasionally, flexible, no Sunday's


No direct deposit, pay, management/franchise, communication

Productive and Fast-paced

You don't have to go to the gym! It will keep you in shape. Overall, good experience, pay is good. Worked night shift and went by quickly being so busy.

Good job for hopeless people

If you have anything at all going for you I would not work there. It's an easy mindless job but its only 20 hrs. a week if that as well as being surrounded by a workforce brainwashed by the union

They have the same expectations for you that they would a robot

The managers are complete d*cks, they scream at you all day long and don’t care about anything other then boxes. Its easy to get promoted sense no one makes it past 3 months there. If your not stacking heavy af boxes as fast as humanly possible for the entirety of your 6 hour shift your completely useless to them and they’ll make sure you know that.


You get one 5 min break 1 hour into your shift


Managers and higher ups will scream at you until you feel worthless

Its ok

I hope the new contract brings more inside full-time positions as it states. Not everyone wants to be a full-time driver. Good pay, good benefits, hard work, and sometimes your coworkers suck since UPS has a hard time firing anyone with the union always having their back regardless of how sorry the worker is.

Place is totally not what it used to be

Wouldn't work here at all. The place isn't a good one to work at. The company is slowly going downhill and will eventually be shut down. Would not recommend

Easy okay job

I was an unloader just unload the truck, keep going pretty simple job. I will say for people considering this job you only get a ten minute break so bare that in mind. I didn't enjoy getting sent home early though when I came to work.


Chance to grow


sometimes you're sent home early

Delivery driver

A lot of moving and driving but amazing pay and great staff and all around people in general. I work seasonal with ups for the last 3 years and plan to continue I love how great this job is and that you feel like your own boss on the road when your doing what you need to and making your delivery’s on time
