Pre loader (Former Employee) – Chantilly, VA – August 31, 2018
My overall experience at ups was not the best but I didn’t mind the work. It was very straight forward what your task were but the trick is being able to uphold the constant manual labor for a long period of time. it’s very energy depleading but the pay makes up for it.
Loader (Former Employee) – Addison, IL – November 1, 2018
Working part time during highschool this job paid great and the work was hard but oddly satisfying. One problem is the "part time" hours you work usually range around 35-40 which might be a lot for some looking for part time work.
Loader (Former Employee) – Greenville, MS – October 30, 2018
a typical day at UPS is usually predicted based on computer calculated data. The work culture at UPS is fast paced. The hardest part of the job is maintaining a clean work space when inventory is over sized
A great company to work for if you can get into management or a delivery position.
Assist other loaders (Former Employee) – Lenexa, KS – October 25, 2018
A typical day show up to work and you will either be loading/unloading a semi or loading a smaller package delivery truck. A physical job you need to be in decent shape to as it is a very fast pace position. If you stick around long enough there is room for advancement. Great company benefits but upper management comes out of the office and yells at the supervisors and in turn the supervisors yell at the laborers. Not a good environment for everyone. You have to have some thick skin to deal with being humiliated at any given time.
Loader (Former Employee) – Redmond, WA – October 24, 2018
As a loader you are asked to work too much for the level of pay you receive. UPS does do a good amount of training to stave off work related injuries. Work during the peak season is stressful and full time. The only good thing about this kind of UPS job are the Union health benefits which are very good.
Load Supervisor/Pre-Loader/Trailer Un-Loader (Former Employee) – Adrian, MI 49221 – October 19, 2018
Very fast paced. Accuracy when loading the delivery truck was of the utmost importance. Intense management scrutiny of hourly workers was the norm because speed and accuracy were an absolute necessity.
Instant gratification for a job well done on a daily basis. Team atmosphere.
The job is a lot of work not going to lie so if you're not used to moving quick don't apply but personally I like to stay busy so I love this job . It's not as bad as everyone makes it seem I promise lol Hamilton location is really good .
Pre-Loader (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 7, 2018
A typical work day begins between 1:30 am and 2:30 am, between those hours your always loading packages non-stop and you on get a 10 min. break. I've learned how to function in a fast paced environment and how to properly lift and lower heavy packages. The hard part of the job is pulling package that weigh over 70+ pounds each and every day. There's not really much enjoyable about working at UPS, it become pretty mundane and stressful after awhile.
