A very large organization, with the pro's and con's of giant companies.
Employee Relations Manager (Former Employee) – San Franci – November 10, 2018
UPS had a very long historic corporate culture that is rapidly changing. We were a very tightly held company until we were publicly traded. While the transition happened many years ago, we are still having some issues deciding who we are.

Package Handler (Former Employee) – Doraville, GA – November 10, 2018
Ups provided its employees with anple overtime both throughout regular hours and with overtime hours during their holiday seasons. The hardest part of my days at ups would be the weather would change and your unloading trucks in sweatpants and a tank-top in 30 degree weather.
Plenty of overtime was offered. Job advancement isn't to complicated.
lunch breaks wasnt long enough and/or wasn't given.
It’s a great place to work for a Vance but probably pay him time off

Package Handler/Safety Representative (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – November 10, 2018
Depending on where you work the nightly shift varied. I worked outbound in the hub. That consisted of loading containers that varied in size that went out to the airplanes to be shipped across the United States.
The management and culture of the company was overall very pleasant, of course there are always bad supervisors wherever you work. It was strictly on a person to person basis
The hardest part of the job for me at first was learning to remember all the zip codes based on the destination you were on. After awhile I eventually became really good at knowing what goes where, atleast I thought. The weather also played a big factor into being one of the hardest parts of the job. It wasn't climate controlled and during the winter some nights were painfully cold.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the fast paced, productive work environment, the work pushed you and if you weren't able to keep up people noticed and would help you accordingly. There were always different people coming and going. Even though you worked with the same people most nights there were always new faces and different people to interact with.
fast paced work, short shifts that made time go by fast.
Day consists of the same routine everyday with the only difference of the volume which goes up and day pending the day. In addition to daily operations there are several meetings throughout the week on various topic pertaining to operations based on region for performance.
Dock cdl (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – November 9, 2018
Good place to work as far as pay but not sure on future. Good benefits but bad equipment . Would love to stay but not sure what the future holds with the union contract being negotiated every five years.
Sorter/Packer (Former Employee) – La Vergne, TN – November 9, 2018
Worse place I've ever worked. You're treated like a slave. You can work 10 hours standing in you feet but get only a thirty minute lunch break. 10 minutes if that is waiting at the clock to punch out, another ten to get your food or find a seat by the time you sit down it's back to the cotton field!
i had work for ups for 6 month and it was seasonal
Driver Helper (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 9, 2018
my position was a driver helper and I had take package to build apartment and go company and delivery their package. we had to have the customer sign for their package. we had to carry the package and un load the truck
They just make ups much more complicated than it has to be. The only people who make real money are the driver's. Being a supervisor you not supposed to touch anything. Not one box, or anything for that matter. They still do so because of management doesn't want to pay anyone but driver's and supervisors. The rules in ups might be the most idiotic and irrational rules at a job. There's a lot that ups offers but it's just not worth the little money you get for that hard work.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – November 8, 2018
Work is hard for most and you have to have very thick skin. It is a militant environment. When it is hot outside, it is hotter inside. Also the same is true for cold weather. There is a lot of yelling from everyone.
