Driver/Operator (Former Employee) – Eagan, MN – January 18, 2019
*Worked at United for about 1 year.
First off, United is contracted by Amazon to deliver packages. Expectations on what area you are assigned to, how fast to deliver, and how many packages you have on your given route is all set by Amazon's logistics, not United.
The reviews about this company is misleading. As I driver I never had a problem with management or felt the expectations were to high. Management and the team at the station worked with me, and along with other workers. They went out of their way to accommodate my work/life balance schedule. Notice to have a day off was about 2 days in advance. Other companies I worked for required 2 weeks!!!
They paid me fairly for my time and due to my good driving status I was able to haul in a coupe of decent bonuses. Requiring an extra day to work was not a problem either,
The company also had other positions open higher up, but the work filed is not for me. Basically, there is room to move up.
Each day was pretty simple.Get route, go to company van, drive to area, and deliver package.
I'd say most guys finished under the 10 hour mark.

The company is a joke, been here a month and they have screwed my pay up 3 times now in a row. Hours are flexible and the job is easy but thats about it. Management is poor and incompetent, don't help when asked.
Easy job anyone can do it. Flexible hours
Poor pay, poor management, failure to pay, no advancement

Working for United was great if you handled your work well. Meaning, if you show up on time and are able to comprehend how to deliver a package it was easy. It was a simple and straight forward job.
The company was very accommodating with my schedule. They always seemed to understand my situation, along with allowing me to take time off. Other drivers also had easy accommodations.
My main problem was not the company but Amazon. Amazon loads the vans and Amazon generates the routes. The company does its best to make everyday easier, but Amazon is slow. Defiantly a large corp. that is very greedy.
Furthermore, some days were fast, while others were long. You get paid for a full day no matter how long you work, but some days go longer then others. Most guys were done before 10 hours. Like I stated earlier...just deliver a package
Food some days, easy to take time off, friendly people, move as fast as you want
clock in get assigned van and route inspect your van load your own bags onto carts and then into van. receive your gas (paid for) follow gps to designated stops (phone provided). return to warehouse go home, 10-12 hr shifts. kiss your lofe goodbye!
managment is a joke. dont care for their employees. do for your employees and they will do for you. some don’t understand that. fellow employees are rought to deal with. attutidues at its finest! they hire just about anybody! hardest part is loading your van. its stressful and tiring. your sweating bullets and worn out before you even get on the road! the only good thing is you get paid weekly (not enough for your troubles but you do get paid) and your out on the road alone.
weekly pay, being by yourself, good physical work, working for amazon
no benifits, no overtime, van conditions, poor management, picking up others slack, no extra pay
United Transportation does not offer any benefits to its employees that similar companies in the same industry offer. There are no paid-leave or sick days. Hours are not flexible and there is only one shift. You can choose your work days but are often called and asked to work your days off. The head manager at this location has poor memory and judgment and often walks away or refuses to listen to even his assistant managers. The operation run at this location seems rushed and unplanned. They are trying to jump on an opportunity and make as much money as possible in a very little time at the expense of their employees. As a temporary position, it is O.K. but no one should stay here long.
Can choose work days
No Benefits, No shifts, Demanding, No raises, No promotions.
Work 10hrs a day (8am-6pm). It’s a four day work week. DSPs are very reliable. Cargo vans are new and fairly clean. The company pays for gas. Lightweight parcels, usually less than 10lbs. Go at your own pace, but must finish delivery route. Treats you like family. Simple work.
Typical day: Go to warehouse, have morning meeting, get route number, organize cargo van, deliver packages, pump gas, return to station, check in with DSP and Amazon associate, then go home.
Free snacks (sometimes), simple work, nice management, treats you like family
A lot of packages (sometimes), little opportunity to get more hours
Very professional with alot of room for improvement
Inventory Control Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 13, 2015
Numerous phone calls and emails to be answered to start the day. A lot of the work includes tracking shipment and letting the client know about the shipments location. A lot of inside growth with excellent managers and co workers.
Assistant mechanic (Former Employee) – Ashland City, TN – July 16, 2015
I would manually dismount tires and do routine maintenance/ oil changes. I learned a great deal about how a car works and basics of an engine. Management payed good wages and on time. I loved working with my coworkers. They helped make the job enjoyable.
Some days are better than others we all get along with each other go over each others houses let our children play with each other. I would like to be around other people to go after what I need than find out how to get the things I want. Ive seen others grow in the company I would also like to be in a position to help me obtain the things I want an need. Some days you have to pull your self together you don't have the time to participate in some of your children activites because you work so many hours. Sometimes its worth it because you can take car of your family.
