I've honestly only been at UPS for less than a week now. It's definitely an easy job to get, but this place does have a HIGH turnover. There was 30 of us in the beginning of the week and 3 people have quit already. It's more than likely more people will quit by the end of the week because this job is not for everyone.
My first day was meeting up in the auditorium and watching videos and going over all the safety procedures and properly lifting packages. I unfortunately got stuck being a loader, which I hate because I feel like I'd be better as an unloader.
I'm not a very physically active person. So even though I've only been training/loading for 2 days... my body is really starting to ache. I don't think I am the best at loading boxes into a truck, but I noticed my speed increasing after a few days. My problem is I build columns, and not T's as I was taught.
You only get a 10 minute break, which is very short, every job I ever had was always 15 minutes minimum.
I'm more on staying for the benefits they offer and the opportunity to advance to a part-time supervisor. So I would recommend this job if you enjoy the physical work or if you are in school because they offer tuition reimbursement, (earn and learn program starts day 1)
Benefits after one year, short days, Earn and Learn program, picking your own shift, management and supervisors are nice
