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.

Not it.

Bad management, no structure, better for college kids who don’t plan staying long/need work experience. Pay doesn’t match the amount of work, especially during the hot summers.

It was ok for awhile but way to physical not enough pay

It was ok for awhile but way to physical not enough pay. Rules seem to change on a weekly basis but i work there about a year so that's my fault. There is room to grow but lets face it someone like me doesn't bc of my background. But once you make it out of the warehouse and loading i cant say to much about that.

Good seasonal job

Lots of work but easy work for decent pay once you figure it out. Your day is mostly independent work so there is no one telling you what to do all day.

Great for Part-Time

UPS is great with work-life balance. Whether you're in the union or not, UPS offers great benefits. They are incredibly inclusive with a "Not in Our House" policy that emphasizes acceptance and respect for people in all walks of life (including LGBTQ+). It is the perfect place for a part-time job with a great pay scale. The hardest part with "moving up the ladder" is that most supervisors are part-time, so if you're looking for 40hours a week, this is not the place for you.

Very productive job with room for growth

Very active job if you like going to the gym this could be a perfect fit it’s like getting paid to workout fast pace able to dress comfortable friendly coworkers

Pros

No particular dress code other then must wear boots, you get discount on boots, and you get paid to workout

Cons

I can’t think of any cons because they tell you everything up front

Good place to work with room for advancement

Overall UPS is a good place to work if you enjoy or appreciate working hard and completing set tasks. During holiday seasons where incoming volume gets high, be prepared to work long hours and leave tired. Management was supportive and holds their employees to a high standard. Don't expect to be able to slack off and keep your job.

okay

wows okay I learned a lot and it helped that I was able to know that where is the door to the car while I was taking a long time going farther away from the place

So much stress

The stress levels are ridiculous for all employees. It’s worse than Navy Seal training. The people who are on top want to see you fail. The division between off the street hires and package car drivers is stressful. The management does not want off the street hires to succeed. They make it very obvious.

It just doesn't pay!

I agreed to take this job because it advertised a 7 hour work schedule that never came even during peak season. So we only got 15 hours a week. No bueno be young very strong and athletic or don't even bother. Oh and you will undoubtedly either get hurt or fall down. Goodluck!

Pros

Sense of teamship.

Cons

Pay isn't worth the work put out.

Great environment.

I had the pleasure to work for such a great company . It was hard work but the benefits are great . I put in 31 years and was able to retire at 55 with a nice pension plan .

Working with your hands not your head.

The work can be physically demanding but if you're in good condition it's not too difficult. It is also nice to have a task at hand that needs doing and getting it done. It also has great benefits thanks to the Teamsters. If blue collar is what you're looking for then UPS has lots of upsides, however you won't be building any non blue collar skills here either

Pros

Great benefits and good teamwork

Cons

Short breaks and weather conditions can be brutal
