This is a very fast paced job, new workers are sent to unload or load trailers. During summer the trailers are HOT and the fans don't reach the back of the trailer. Most people don't last long and those that do get great benefits after 9 months of PT work. Health, dental and vision insurance for employee and family. There are optional programs such as Aflac, legal service, 401k and employee stock option purchasing. Tuition reimbursement is capped at 25k and employee is eligible on the first day of work. A raise every year and paid vacations, holidays once you have been at UPS for one year.
Health, vision, dental insurance
Fast paced work and at times short staffed.
They treat you like an important part of the company. The job is ever changing by freight amount so it is never dull. Different shifts are hard to get used to but once you can, it’s easy.
On call, have to sleep when home.
It’s honestly a great job, it has ups and downs but benefits are amazing! You will be sweaty, and tired after the job is done. Management can be a little better but they’ll improve slowly. Other than that, you will bust your butt as a loader/unloader/pick-off, or anything that is related to packages. Just be prepared to move around very much!
Bad managements, low pay.
Advancement in UPS means making the brown machine your god. The pressure to perform overrides safety protocols but that is denied. Lower management is pressured to push labour.
Good pay, decent benefits
Ridiculous hours, excessive demands, low encouragement
UPS is demanding in several aspects but it's rewarding to those that are willing to work hard and never settle for less. Web the chips are down service becomes the priority and may require a flexible schedule on your part.
Advancement opportunities are abundant
Hard work, at times long hours
Help us improve!

I have been working at this certain hub for just too long. It is decent pay and great benfits. HOWEVER, you will be pushed to the brink to meet "their" numbers. Don't forget while you are being pushed to meet the numbers, you cannot put too much down the belt even that is literally what they told you to do. You are just a cog to them and nothing more than busting butt for the bigger machine that they expect to be worn down and replaced. Need Benefits and like being treated like a machine without feelings work here!
Poor management in the ground level which led to unorganized plans and high turnover of employees. Manpower was not distributed properly. Poor communication among entire operations made it difficult to maintain good working mentality. Employees wanted to excel but achievement of any objectives were usually crushed due to poor planning and short staff.
Company is a solid place to work. If you are not afraid of hard work, long hours and no AC in the summer then this is the place to work. Pay is fantastic, as well as health care coverage, provided at no cost. Pension plan, 401k, top pay in the industry. Job security, seniority, union environment. Also you can retire after 25 years, or 30 if you are under 55.
Great pay, benefits, vacation time and sick time.
Hot in summer, cold in winter, hard work, you do not go home until the truck is empty.
Currently night shift warehouse is making 19 dollars an hour. You will move alot of boxes, so cancel your gym membership. Definitely alot of dust within the building. Usually opportunities for overtime by signing up for extra shifts, mainly the shift that runs 2am to 10am. You're hired on as part time unless your a driver. 25 hours weekly. Management can be a little bit prickish but honestly I've had few issues there and some are really cool. Good benefits and pension, abilities to transfer to any ups hub of your choice provided there's a position available. Yearly paid vacation time.
***GoodBenefitsSOME co-workers***BadDidn't get no hazard payAlways doing more then quotedAdvancement sucks and for the luckyThey often say but you will see anotherIf your working for the first time and need benefits this is good 4 u.But if you need money, package handler isn't the way.
Noisy, physical, dirty. Cold & sweaty in the winter; hot and sweaty in the summer. To put things in perspective, as a driver, I had a tire wholesale account as my last pick-up. I had to fit as many tires in my package car as possible. Even soaked in sweat and covered in tire dust, I was never as dirty as my pre-loader.That is the downside. The upside is that it is honest hard work for which you are paid well every Thursday. The packages don’t follow you home.As others have noted, you’re guaranteed 3.5 hours per shift. You will get more than that. The joke at Brown is that part-time is full time and full time is all the time. The joke is accurate.Show up every day 15 minutes early, sober, fed, watered and ready to work and your supervisor will take care of you getting hours.
Starting as a warehouse associate you will physically work hard. If you do, you will be noticed and rewarded for it. UPS will push you to perform and those that rise will find the opportunity to drive and earn a good pay.
Good pay and good health benefits.
Full time driver pay is good but you will work long hours.
