There are various things that you can do at a UPS Store, so it is best if you are a versatile person. Customers who enter the store most likely do not know what they want. So they are searching for you to shed some light and help them out. Due to the versatility of working here, there is a lot of knowledge you need to have down. Such as faxing, basics of printing, knowledge of both UPS and USPS Shipping policies and basic data entry. The work place can either be very productive, friendly and exciting; however, it can also be extremely stressful, negative and boring. A downside is that there are not very many places for advancement in the company. However, depending on the boss, can make this up by being very flexible with the schedule and having a close knit bunch of coworkers can be really nice as well. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the UPS Store and am very grateful for the relationships I have gained personally and business connections I have made as well.
Flexible hours, close knit coworkers, fast paced
short lunches, hard to take breaks when busy, crowded and not much room for advancement
Preload Supervisor (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – May 16, 2018
I was a supervisor at UPS, so I got to see handlers, fellow supervisors, and drivers at work. First, the hours are awful, and are never set in stone. Extremely high-pressure workplace during sorts, decent communication between the high-low levels. The Job Culture gets 4 stars because it's a blast working on the sorts with the wide variety of employees. It should be a one, because the high-level management only sees numbers when they look at you.

They are very rude at the DC location on Lst and in CLINTON me. They owner is disrespectful and a pervert. The manager rashida is a thief but blames everybody else. They was hard to work with. They only give you like 5 hrs a with 16 to 20 hrs a week. Don't ever work for those locations
Package Handler (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – May 16, 2018
A normal day at UPS can either be extremely stressful or pretty laid back. You never know what to expect when you walk in. The hours at UPS are good - not too little and not too many - and the pay is great considering they also pay for school. The management at UPS takes their job very seriously and always knows what is going on. While working there, I've learned more responsibility, how to help other coworkers while also getting my work done, how to work under different supervisors since they are shuffled every couple of months, and how to adjust to working third shift. The hardest part of the job at UPS is not knowing when you'll get off every night and also keeping up with the fast work flow. The most enjoyable part of my job at UPS is talking to my coworkers while also working because I really like forming relationships with the people I work with and I also really prioritize getting my job done.
Pays for college, good hourly pay, casual work environment, good supervisors
can't request off, have to wait a year before receiving benefits, no air conditioning, stressful

UPS Freight is a high paced place to work. Teamwork is essential to meet goals. daily pre shift meetings help with daily objectives. communication between managers and supervisors has room for improvement.
Preloader (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, NC – May 15, 2018
I did well at the job. I was hopeful to become full-time. I wanted to become a driver. Unfortunately it is difficult and many in line to get that position. The warehouse position does not offer the benefits of becoming a driver. It can be worse to become full-time in the warehouse.
UPS Driver Helper (Former Employee) – Flagstaff, AZ – May 15, 2018
sweet job but i couldn't get them to keep me on permanently so after the seasonal work ended i had to look for a new place to work which was really not cool because i worked my butt of harder than anyone they had there and i know that for a fact.
Great pay/ incentives for seasonal employment. Great team collaboration and HR team. That being said, they encourage you to work harder and faster simply to benefit they're productivity be during peak season you get worked like a dog.
Free pizza at break
Union dues are high/ long time to get benefits/advancement and higher pay
I had the greatest time working with UPS. I had so much fun, and learned so many new things. Helping drivers deliver packages was an amazing feeling for me and the customers. The relationship between coworkers is great and being able to joke with your coworkers makes for a stress-free work environment.
