Revenue Auditor (Former Employee) –  Hodgkins, ILSeptember 17, 2018
I really enjoyed my time working for Ups , Ups as a company tried to make the warehouse as comfortable as they could... Ups always have little competitions going on to make you go harder.

Loader (Former Employee) –  Hodgkins, ILSeptember 17, 2018
If you can make it to your 1 year mark, the health benefits are great. Low copays at doctors, very low to none payments on prescriptions. However, it is a very loud & dusty facility. You will meet some great people & a lot of not so great people. The management isnt all that great. Part time supervisors are generally really nice & good, full timmers and up are a big pain in the butt to deal with. There is oppertunties to learn & grow within the company. Whether it's getting promoted to a part time supervisor or a full time loader/unloader (granted it takes years to make full time), or even being trained & certificated at different job tasks throughout your work area. There's always plenty of things to learn.
Pros
Paid holidays (after 1 year), paid vacations, 3 paid optional days, after 5 hours is time & half
Cons
10 min breaks, not a lot of hours to be made until peak season, senority is a big deal, managment is horrible, pay rate is not good

Overall experience at UPS wasn’t too bad. Hours were shorter than expected, wouldn’t provide as much em tea hours due to huge staff. Commute from my home in Berwyn was too much after the holiday season

Package Handler, UPS (Current Employee) –  Hodgkins, ILAugust 28, 2018
It's a quick paced work environment with a lot of activity involved. There is plenty room for advancement within the company. There are also good benefits but you have to be there a year before you receive them.

Worked like slaves for lower than average pay
Package Handler (Current Employee) –  Hodgkins, ILAugust 9, 2018
You will be worked like a slave for 5+ hours with not enough pay or long enough breaks. Although some of the management seems to know how to operate properly, most people in the company do not.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Short break, not enough pay

It’s not for everyone
Supervisor/Operations Management (Former Employee) –  Hodgkins, ILJuly 23, 2018
UPS is fast paced, there is a lot of turnover but the work isn’t difficult. I feel like people just made it hard just because. Management position is stressful but if you like working under pressure, leading a team, managing multiple things at the same time then you’d enjoy it. Good hours, good overtime and good pay. If you work hard, do your job, and be a company person then you will get moved up
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Stressful

Fair
UPS Package Handler (Former Employee) –  Hodgkins, ILJuly 20, 2018
They have a fair company but need hirer wages. It’s a very easy job if you like fast pace environments I come from that so I can adapt quickly. The no dress code is also good.
Pros
No dress code good hours if you want
Cons
Low pay

Productive days of hard work
Package Handler - Seasonal (Former Employee) –  Hodgkins, ILJuly 19, 2018
The hardest part of the job was making sure everything went to the right place and nothing was in the wrong spot. If a package was in a wrong bag or sent to the wrong area, we would get in trouble. That was the hardest part of the job besides maybe the heat within the summer months. There was no air movement in most the building, but water was given to us every hour to make sure we were hydrated. Supervisors cared for the most part how we were doing and would check up regularly. It was a good job for the most part, and easy enough to go through the day without thinking too hard.

Good job for benefits/pays for college
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Hodgkins, ILJuly 13, 2018
UPS is a good company to work for because of the benefits and the fact that it pays for school. The work is hard and the work conditions can be brutal during the summer and winter seasons. Workers are backed by the union and that usually makes managements job difficult.
Pros
Pay for school
Cons
Wrk conditions
