Safety Team Member (Current Employee) –  Doraville, GASeptember 15, 2018
Good benefits but the pay isn't that good considering the amount of work you have to do and hours. Management isn't professional. No good raises. The only advice I can give is to work smart and make wise choices on the trucks you choose to unload, load, or sort.
Pros
Tuition Reimbursment, above minimum wage
Cons
Low Pay for amount of work, unprofessional managers

Not fun
United Parcel Service Package Handler (Current Employee) –  Syracuse, NYSeptember 15, 2018
Just wasn't for me don't feel your appreciate as well as respected. You work your tail off just to be told hurry up. you only get 10 min break in a 5 to 6 hour shift. That's just someone taking advantage of the laws by doing that. pay is lousy for that kind of work. Take care of the little people, that's not whats happening there.
Pros
none
Cons
work to hard

Packaging Associate (Former Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LASeptember 15, 2018
I got the chance to learn the proper steps to pack and ship packages across the world. The work place is small and relaxed and you get to know your co-workers very well. Although the pay was low its a good first job to understand the workplace and even get a foot in the packaging workplace.
Cons
low pay

Fast pace work
Clerk (Former Employee) –  Tyler, TXSeptember 15, 2018
Arive at work, set up area by getting supplies ready and getting body streatched. Start processing any items left from the night before, then start processing the packages as needed when they come down the belt. Whenever there is any time when nothing is comming down either catch up or assist others in the area to help them catch up. Continue to work as fast pace until brake, then take 10 minute brake then finish work that is comming down belt. After regular items are finished make sure everything in work area is clean, call customers if needed, and move packages that are left for will call, future, or that or being held to the correct locations. Then assist in other areas as needed like bagging up small bags, assisting with customers, or locating packages for customers until time to leave.
Pros
Good pay and bennefits.
Cons
Fast pace work, not totaly safe.

Hard working and fast paced enviornment
Preloader (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCSeptember 15, 2018
A typical day at UPS is fast paced. As soon as you walk into the building, you get straight to work. My usual load, being four trucks, had to be fully loaded before 9 am; the end of the early morning shift. 100+ packages can be loaded onto each truck. When you have multiple trucks, packages for each of those trucks will come to you in one or two bins. You have to keep a watchful eye on that and make sure that you don't load packages onto the wrong truck. With that being said it's a physically demanding job that has you on your feet for at least five hours. There's a lot of heavy lifting, pulling and or pushing, in order to have all packages fill the entire space for each truck. The hardest part of the job? Adjusting to early morning hours; 4 am to 9 am. Most enjoyable part? Seeing the friends who helped me get that job.

Heavy focus on deadlines and safety
Package Handler (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYSeptember 15, 2018
Usual 4-5 hour work day, move the product as it comes to you as quickly and safely as you can. Management and job culture are lacking. The work is not hard in and of itself, however the buildings and overall environment is depressing, moreso during dayshift. Workplace culture is wholly focused on safety, and attempts to engage through "edutainment". Hardest part was peak season, 12 hour days with large spans on no activity, then large spans of non-stop movement. The pay and benefits are amazing, however.
Pros
Paid tuition for UofL, free amazing insurance, lots of vacation time with seniority
Cons
Poor management, depressing workplace, little room for upward movement
