afternoon loader (Former Employee) –  Maui, HIAugust 10, 2018
You must be a hardworking individual to enjoy this job and this type of work. The most enjoyable part of the job was the relationships made with coworkers.

Decent place to work
Loader (Current Employee) –  Delaware, OHAugust 9, 2018
Ups is a good place to work part time but cannot be your only job if you have your own place and other bills to pay. If you choose to work here you will be happy
Pros
Nice pay for part time
Cons
Do not have full time

It is a good job.

It is a good job if you can work at odd hours. It will require heavy physical work and it will fast-paced. If one can survive the first few days, it will be a very good job.
Pros
Benefit, paid offs, discounts

short breaks, odd hours, heavy physical work.

Not really much to it just keep a clear head and a consistent speed of unloading and you'll be fine. Drink plenty of water and make sure to eat before you come
in.

Good place to work in college
Trailer Loader (Former Employee) –  Tucker, GAAugust 2, 2018
There are many good places to work while in college and if you have classes in the day then the night shift is good for you and if anything it is back breaking work that will hurt you if you don't take care of yourself

Dusty place, overtime pay is good just work if you're not fatigued,heavy lifting,Short break,Part-time hours some days,poor equipment and management
Loader (Current Employee) –  Commerce City, COJuly 31, 2018
( part-time, weekly checks)If you are planning to work in Commerce city Denver hub as a loader. Be warned. You will be moving at a pace or you can get stuck into the trailer loading boxes and have to go back and forth breaking jams that make the boxes just fall on both sides of the trailer because too many boxes are already in your chute. Picking up those boxes that are in your egress can be a pain. going at a pace keeps you sane and your area clean. The equipment in the trailers is usually what they call "rollers" and the rollers occasionally send five or four boxes at a time before getting caught or having the box just fall off before it gets off the chute. The equipment could be better if it was just repaired. Some are missing a tab which keeps the overflow of boxes to a minimum. This is bad because Boxes fall onto the rollers quickly depending on the number and weight of the boxes if the tab is missing the boxes will come flying into you if you're not cautious but this is rarely happening because The rollers are missing some of the parts. It can get caught in between the rolling bars but mostly gets cluttered by the chutes. If you have rollers though. The electric conveyor belt that you have in some areas is better but some don't extend long and drop to the floor which makes you think it might break. depending on the area you can have a ton of boxes some of the days you're there or bad management and you are being sent to clean someone else's work you can get stuck with boxes each night. Now the people like to talk (insert word) depending on the area and leave without finishing  more... the work.No biggy if you have to time and are not fatigued to care, You're there for the money. Most are definitely friendly and longtime workers. Overtime pay is great if you have or get the time checks weekly and benefits after a year. It is an alright place to work if you can make it work and make a difference. Some people throw boxes around and they come damaged already to the hub so its like you have no choice but to load it. It really can be better.  less

Hard Work
Loader (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXJuly 27, 2018
You work constantly until you can't anymore. It's at least 5 hours of consistent manual labor. They don't really give you a chance to take a break. Everything is on a time schedule and they want you working for literally as long as you possibly can. Honestly it was worth the money when my bonus was giving me 15$ an hour. But then myself and a lot of my coworkers weren't getting our bonuses which didn't make it worth it anymore. The bonus was based on showing up on time and every day you were scheduled. Which we all did and they just kept coming up with excuses as to why we were not receiving it. This went on for about 3 weeks before I finally quit.

Pre Loader (Former Employee) –  Maspeth, NYJuly 18, 2018
You have to be able to move quickly, yet swiftly. Clumsiness cannot be accepted because it will not work for you. It's not so much the difficult tasks that is asked of you, more of a challenge to get the work done on time.
Cons
All tge great benefits are alloted to tge drivers only, the MOST IMPORTANT position is treated unjustly

Great job. Some benefits begin immediately. The best benefits are achieved with long term employment. If you are not lazy and don't mind exerting energy, this is a great job.
