Started around 10-10:30am Monday through Friday. Worked until final package delivered. Usually finished after 4pm but as we got closer to Christmas, worked later. A regular UPS driver would drop off the deliveries for the day. I split the community between myself and another UPS driver. We had golf carts with small trailers hooked up to golf carts. Organized route with the closest deliveries first and work back. Those packages we couldn't fit on carts, left in a locked trailer. Some of the stuff was heavy so I took what I could fit on the planned route.
Deliver items in my neighborhood
Having to plan out the route and know what I could fit on the cart.

Stressful Work Place Quick Paced UPS's primary business is the time-definite delivery of packages and documents worldwide. In recent years, UPS has extended its service portfolio to include less than truckload (LTL) transportation (primarily in the U.S.) and supply chain services. UPS reports its operations in three segments: U.S. Domestic Package operations, International Package operations, and Supply Chain & Freight operations.

When I was working there I loved my job I was trained to do everything the people there were great they tell how to do each and every step the correct way I wish it wasn't seasonal because I love that job
The job I got was very fast paced and always a way of learning how to make it simpler. The break times were paid which made me work with a purpose. The supervisor was on the road also to assist with wrong slot
From the start of a shift to the end , everyone is professional and hardworking while keeping a relaxed mindset throughout the day . The teamwork displayed day in and day out pushes you to become a better you so you can put yourself in a leadership position someday.

The job was okay. It taught me that manual labor was not for me however helped me pick up on certain skills I may have been lacking. A typical day was from 9am-9pm of non stop moving, unloading,distributing, and helping others.The best part was seeign the truck that was sometimes filled from front to back empty after each and everyday.
Productive and very high pace workplace.Although management isnt the best wages as a driver are very good also with great benefits

Wages as a preloader aren't good,you get 25hrs a week not including overtime and your check comes out to barely anything at the end of the week,Benefits are great but they make you have to work extra overtime at my position to see the pay you really deserve
