Fast paced and physical work environment for poor pay and no recognition for hard work.
Local Sort Laborer / Jump during peak (Current Employee) – Ashland, KY – November 13, 2018
A typical day for me was coming in for local sort at 5:00 P.M. and working a 5 hour shift Monday through Friday. At the facility I work at local sort is composed of only around 10 people. Most of the people have been there upwards of 5-20 years so gaining seniority is very difficult. The wait time for becoming a driver is somewhere between 1-4 years and depends on many different factors. PEAK is the only time your able to make any decent money as a package handler since you can get an hour or two of overtime occasionally, and can jump with drivers making 15.00 an hour. The only enjoyable part about working for UPS is the benefits, and its a decent resume builder. I did every job in the building from sorting smalls, unloading, loading, airs, scanning, washing package cars, and more.
excellent benefits, payed weekly, off on weekends
Very physical work for little pay
