My Last Day at Full-Time UPS Package Handler: A Warning

932 ratings | 90832 views
The job itself is super manageable and doable but poor communication combined with several workers who aren't willing to do overtime will force temps and hard workers to feel obligated to work longer. This was my last day at UPS as a full time temporary package handler. I was a sorter for both the night shift and the preload. I wanted to put this up mainly to wrap up a few more thoughts that weren't covered in my previous videos and also to add in a bit more content since I haven't been uploading much as late. My last week and a half at UPS was an uphill battle. I got used to the workload of the usual 9 hr per day with a 1 hr break in between and often a good amount of overtime everyday. That was doable. When my lunch was cut in due to the workload, that's when the work got tougher. The full one hour break was an ample amount of time for me to enjoy food and stretch out sore muscles. When cut to less than 30 minutes, I was always going into the second shift half awake and fatigued. On top of this, I noticed that the higher ups tried to keep me as long as possible by providing me with a paraphernalia of things to do. If one task was done past overtime, they'd go out of their way to search for another task even when my lunch was already cut to 20 minutes. All in all, make sure you be mindful about how hard you work here. If you are a part-timer and plan on staying here full-time, then put in just the right amount of effort to get the work done. The moment a higher-up catches you putting in extra work, they will take advantage of your mentality and also your physical capabilities. As for summer-temps, this will happen regardless of whether or not you have the working mentality. Just grind it out, work hard, and make the best out of it. The work is tough. The environment is tough. But, the benefits severely outweigh the work that is put in.

Don't take this wrong. But when you get to work at any job. Give your boss 100% if you can't or won't do that. Then you need to find a new job. Work hard get more hours. Staying late if not free time. Dude you are paid by the hour. I know people at UPS and when they work more than five hours. They get paid overtime for anything over that 5 hrs.

Bunch of pu**ies. I’ve been at Ups for years. Make 6 figures now,because I STUCK WITH IT. I went through the SAME exact process as all you ‘QUITTERS’ . Entry level position and up. ANYTHING worth having will NOT come EASY unless you didn’t HAVE to work for it! 1. Almost $40 an hour. 2. Double time pay on non-scheduled work days. time and a 1/2 pay after 40hrs. 3. 8 weeks paid vacation 4. 7 sick days that can be sold back if not used. 5. Union job 6. Great benefits including optometry pkg with free glasses. 7. Paycheck every Friday 8. Off Saturday and Sunday If you BELIEVE that you’re NOT going to HAVE to bust your ass for access to those perks you’re high AF. It’d be best to say,that you just weren’t built for the job than come with a bitch and moan story. Quitting is easy.

I am currently working at UPS as a package handler. What they don’t fucking tell you is that during peak season you will be working 8 1/2 hour shifts... not 3 1/2 to 4. Oh yea, and you get a 10 min break and THATS IT. No lunch, no 15 min break. The union won’t do jack shit about it and I’ve contacted the union president and he just said sorry that sucks.

UPS is so unorganized. HR and supervisors are all telling me something completely different. People stay and work like slaves for the pay and benefits. Very sad.
BUCKETHEADache (11 days ago)
Yeah one supervisor tells me to load one way another tells me to load another way, a third tells me I been doing it all wrong...

The job is fucking easy. Hit the fucking gym and it will make things easier can’t be mentally weak and expect to like a job. You’re working in a god damn warehouse for fucks sakes. Easy money. Don’t be fucking stupid get the damn experience yourself before you start making decisions. The first two weeks are brutal though.

Ups destroyed my physical and mental health last peak. I worked at DFW and it was pure hell because the air hub facility was getting twice the load it was designed to handle. Working 12 hour shifts in the pouring rain and cold on the ramp. Quitting that hell hole was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Dude, you are a piece of shit worker. If they want you to walk back and forth through the hub...do it. They are paying for it. It’s a tough job physically, but, you’re a young kid, You should be able to handle it. It ends up being great pay and great benefits. You young pricks think you should be able to text on your phones and do nothing while you’re on the clock. If part time labor is kicking your ass then get an office job and quit your whining! We don’t want pussies in the labor trades!

From what you're telling me....it doesn't seem like a good job to have in the long-term. You sound very tired & fed up in your video, lol. Maybe it's one of those jobs that people should apply to, as a "last resort". I'd look elsewhere if someone wants to work full-time or just wants extra change in their pocket. You say that you shouldn't work too hard, but going the other way....managers/supervisors could think that you're slacking off and they'll eventually release you. Hypothetically speaking, you're screwed either way XD

I'm 34 and I can keep up with these 18-25 year olds because my mindset is always positive. I think about the paycheck and how to utilize it towards investments plus FREE benefits after a year. I mean who TF does that nowadays!!! Oh yes, please hydrate or drink plenty of water before you go to sleep, before your shift begins, during your shift and after your shift. Vitamin C helps too because of the unseen germs floating around the warehouse. Again this job is all MENTAL. YOU HAVE TO BE MENTALLY TOUGH TO ENDURE THE PHYSICAL PART!

So whats a full time package handler salary
MICHAEL WESTON (1 month ago)
I did this for 5 years and this guy is blaming the wrong people. If the Fucked up union faggots would let the supervisors help out on those days that are needed then all packages will get out on time, but instead they bitch, complain and file grievances, causing the packages to pile up out of control. The unions ruined UPS along with ALL industries that they infect, spreading laziness and nonexistent work ethic in the process. I worked as BOTH a preloader and a supervisor and have seen both sides of the coin. It's 100% the unions fault!!! De-unionize America and help bring work ethic back, the teamsters are a Cancer on the resume of this once great country!

I have a question you said you worked 1130-830 if I’m a part time handler either same schedule do I get overtime after five hours or is that consider to shifts with minimum wage pay
be g (2 months ago)
Akemi yea they told us after five hours is overtime but I dont know much about this company and wanted to clarify is overtime still applies if it’s a double shift
Akemi (2 months ago)
You get overtime after the four you worked assuming you've went over your total part time hours for the week. Make sure you check in with your supervisor because it may be different in your area.
Philip Jnz (2 months ago)
My mother works at a school cafeteria and she is probably the nicest lady working there (out of 11 women) and shes always telling us that her manager picks on her to do extra work the most out of all because she never makes a bad face or complains and is willing to help. Needless to say she is always extremely tired and still gets paid same as the other lazy women there. I wish there was an incentive like a raise to make people work harder and not just go for the paycheck. Im assuming you mentioned this "being too nice" thing because it happened to you while working at UPS?

Jessica Herrera (2 months ago)
okay, so what do you do when they are trying to take advantage of you? Do you just say fuck off lol I don't get it, what do I do if they are all up in business? I am a natural hard worker at heart, I was a CNA before with the ratio of 18 patients to 1 (which was me) and like half of those people were dependent. My nursing home worked me like a Hebrew slave, to the point I had no breaks, did 8 hours, hardly got my lunch breaks if lucky, mandated to do another 8 because the next shift that was supposed to relief me didn't show up, and go home and sleep finally, then come again and do it all over again. That was my life 4 years for full time, and I even picked up a lot of overtime, until they written me up for bull shit, and then I put in my 2 weeks notice. I figured ups couldn't be worse than that nursing home garbage...but idk, imma find out if it's good for me. Can't stand when supervisors aren't content with the hard work I put, and don't respect my limits.

Justin Martinez (3 months ago)
Number 1) you are guaranteed a 15 minute break on your shifts. Anywhere between the 2 or 3rd hour, you signed a waiver for this. You yourself made the sole choice of passing up on your breaks. Also, please dont discourage the teamster members to not work hard. We are here for the long run and we aren't temporary. The more you know, the better your situation is. You should have talked to your fellow employees and got a little more insight on things. As well as getting supervisors phone numbers to eliminate any of the run around. Simple solutions to real world problems.
adu1991 (1 month ago)
Yup, almost any job will treat well workers who actually *work* *hard* . Even if they do give extra work, they'll reward you even more, later on, for accomplishing those tasks. I'm still leaning towards working at UPS not being the right job for me, though....

I worked at UPS package handler from 1 am - 9am for mon-fri every week for seasonal around October 2015. I probably only lasted a month and a half. It was the hardest job I have ever had physically but it was a great challenge mentally and physically... but VERY stressful. I have to agree about the whole supervisor thing. Those guys are dicks and can be very up your ass on things. I can’t believe I got away with some of the disrespectful remarks I made to my supervisor for being a cunt... and I don’t regret telling him no. I ended up quitting because I didn’t want to work that hard of a job with someone who lingered around like that being the way he was. I was happy as hell to leave. Btw, the pay seems high but I’ll say right now it ain’t high enough and you will not be satisfied. Don’t waste your time at UPS... there’s better jobs out there, easier ones with good hours if you simply look.
The Oliver (3 months ago)
The warehouse feels similar to hell on earth at times. It’s not healthy. But no one forces us to work there and it pays. You may not have energy to live a life outside of work but if you are smart with your money and investments you may be able to have a significant retirement. I’m not sure if it’s worth it. It’s better than having no opportunies.

For the most part, it does pay off. With that being said....people aren't always going to appreciate the hard work, and if someone truly feels miserable at their job....they should consider quitting. Workers shouldn't be forced to stay at their job, and if employers are doing that....then legal action should be taken against the company.

I work for usps and I started out as a casual (another word for holiday employee) government employee right ? You would think they would treat you with a lot of respect - still got hazed, harassment, lied to about work or breaks you name it ! I stayed with my position and did get a year contract until I get moved to regular (fancy word for full time benefits regular employee) even though I work over 40+ hours since I’ve started working at usps.

Hm, I've been at ups for a 1yr & a half. I love it, they have great benefits! It's fast paced which is extremely fun. Putting in hardwork at a job is good work ethic, you'll definitely get noticed for it. Don't be that guy who doesn't put in enough work. If you can't handle breaking a sweat then don't apply there. We talk shit about your lazy ass lol . Other than that the only downsides is the pay rate $15.50 & the hours, I get 4-5 hrs a day (part time) that still wouldn't cover life expenses whatsoever. Moral is you can test out the waters & see if you like the job.

Back on in 2000 I worked at UPS for 4 days at a major city hub. If you go to work there as a package handler, make sure you join the union. If you don’t want to, this job is not for you. I decided not to join the union because my thought was why pay for representation seems an outdated way in today’s US workforce. Unions were created in the industrial revolution... Boy was I wrong, those union people will f you over. Lied about fans not working, leave you alone to unload/load an entire trailer w/o help, etc. They will make your life miserable to get you to either join or quit. UPS is definitely not a company I would recommend to work at, simply because they let that shit happen. Find a better job, they are out there. Thanks for sharing your experience there.

Golden God (4 months ago)
Exactly. I was working on an assembly line for a very notable medical company. My hours were 6:30 am to 2:30 pm monday through friday. It was a Friday, and I was not so much asked to stay until 6 pm, but rather told that "we need you to stay for another three and a half or four hours." This shit was sprung on me at literally 1:45 PM. I was winding down for the day, and looking forward to getting off to go chill with my bros. I told my boss that I had plans already set and that I could not stay past 2:30. He was disappointed, but that shit was worth it.

Wow this new generation is in trouble lol body aches bc can’t stand for 4 hours straight with an hour break then stand for another 4 hours lol I’ve been working since I was 14/15 an started out at a fucking fish house aka fish packing plant where I would unload boats an it would get boxed with ice lol I didn’t have no problems bc my generation was the last generation without the luxury of cellphones where if you wanted to hangout with a friend you call his house or walk or ride a bike over to the house.. I’m not trying to be mean but what I’m getting at is the new generation sits down way too much.. Growing up in late 80 an early 90s we would only be in the house playing our Nintendo when it was storming out or night time lol I remember me an my brother an our friends playing in the rain trying to make a mud bowl playing football an/or trying to play baseball in the rain by our parents would call us in bc of the Lightning.. All this technology got the new gen lazy I mean people making videos of their selves playing video games on YouTube lol that’s nuts it really is

It also doesn't help that these facilities are pushing towards more automation over workers for convenience and to save money. Bottom line is we as the consumers and the workers often don't have a choice but to succumb to corporate changes or get left behind in the dust. You make a super good point on the luxury part of the new generation. As I've noticed with walking down campuses and the metro, people are detached from the world around them and fixated deeply into their own lives and circles. Now many people can't form meaningful relationships. And even when these "friends" get together and hangout, they're still on their phones. The world is truly a scary place today.

Lila Polite (4 months ago)
Power to you, my brother. Package handling is the worst job EVER! FedEx is no better. Trust. I loaded the trailers. Multiple ones. Worked the belt. Helped in other areas. Worked smalls. They worked the shit out of me and all the folks that worked hard. Busted my hand and it’s permanently jacked up because they handled the incident poorly. The lack of communication must be in their training manual as a right of passage! The dehydration is real. Comes from touching the boxes and you have to drink water! You sweat in the summer and worse in the winter because you have on two layers of clothes in those brutally cold warehouses. Pat downs, security scans, shoes off, hats off to enter and leave. Dummies for managers. Nasty asses. Drunk and high folks who don’t show up on Saturday because they got paid on Friday. No regard for the job and the job has no love for you. Unsafe conditions. Folks getting robbed, attacked and violated in the parking lot. Supervisors with the brain power of a fly flexing on folks old enough to be their mother/father...Just all parts of fuckery for the sake of greed. And don’t you dare question anything even in the most professional manner. For a lousy $200 a week, if that. Your body, brain and soul take a beating. 4am always got here too quickly. I would not recommend this shit to my worst enemy. But, if you go in with blinders on and not think about the bs, get your little change and go. Perfect for college students and a second gig to pay off a bill. Thanks for letting me rant. Good luck to you!

Man I got lucky then! I work at UPS that is in the airport. I work in the Ramp and its the easiest job I have ever had. 4-5 Hours, the pay now due to the new Contract is 13/h which is great for my state. Except for pallets that weight 4-10k pounds, the rest are easy to push due to rollers. I have my college paid, and recently there was an influx of young high schoolers-first time college hires like me which makes the day go faster with socializing. Great job! but when we randomly get pick for HUB DUTY! Hell that is literally hell.

Dang man, that sucks and thanks for the warning. I've got an interview tomorrow because I need a job and havent found much else lately since I normally do freelance work online but, this is kinda making me wonder if I shouldn't bother to go through with it.
Kade Markoux (4 months ago)
Akemi so after getting the job I can agree 100% that this job is pretty much a joke in my area. I was told by a few people they’re desperate for people to work such an early morning shift but it seems otherwise. I received a call last Friday telling me I would start on Saturday so I went in at 3:30am only to sit there for about an hour doing absolutely nothing until the manager on duty came and got me and some other guy then all we did was watch videos for the next two hours and got sent home afterwards. During that time I heard two employees getting yelled at for stupid stuff that made no sense when all they were doing was informing the manager about some problems at hand and he just said make it work pretty much ignored the situation. What a huge lack of communication and organization as far as I can tell. There was also no clock-in system to track employees coming into and leaving work and I think that’s bad too. The manager took down our information and said he would call by Tuesday to let me know what’s going on and I never heard anything so I went in this morning at 4:30am and found everyone working already. I then saw a supervisor I recognized from the first time and asked him if the manager was around. He said no he’s at training and said I could go home they don’t need me and he too took down my number. This is turning into a huge waste of my time so I am going to look for a better job in the meantime. It’s becoming very apparent that working here sucks and will lead to nothing but more stress and drama..

Kade Markoux for freelancing if you work at ups you'll be getting full time benefits for part time work. So if you endure it's not too bad.

I worked for preload for 3 years. Had 1 of the worst supervisors in the facility, went to my home town to be a driver and it was way worse. No union protection cost me the job pretty much, as the union stewart could care less because he was close to retirement.

Here's some real advice. You don't start at UPS as a full time employee. You start off as a part-timer, working 4 hours making $8-$9 an hour. You start off in loading or unloading. Loading is HELL, and I mean HELL on your back. You have to load two 18-wheeler sized trucks from front to back, top to bottom with no gaps. Imagine Tetris, but bigger real life pieces. Not all pieces are nice square boxes. Not all boxes are light, some are heavy filled with bolts, nails, these boxes go on the bottom and serve as the base. Sounds easy right? Then you get shit like horse saddles, or boxes shaped like a bowling ball and 25 chairs. All must be packed perfectly in the the truck. You spend most of the shift bent over, and your back just BURNS. By the time you get off, you are soaking wet, head to toe. There is no A/C, just a fan all the way at the back of the truck on the dock. If this is what you are looking for, this is PERFECT.

Preload is the hardest job, physically next to delivery. I'm a delivery driver , and thank god its my last year. UPS is a meat grinder. Take care of yourself buddy.

I've been there 10 years as a part time employee, learn the contract language and tell them to EFF OFF when they violate them. Also I only work hard for managers/supervisors who have earned my respect everyone else gets a box every 3 seconds. I'm also a part time driver I frequently have to tell part time supervisors when they are about to violate dot/labor laws.

sounds likes it very disorganized and it's bad that they don't appreciate efficient workers but it was the same where I worked and that was government.

This is almost every labor job in the United States. Shit hours, pay and work. Women working, automation and NAFTA have given us a surplus of labor and you are very expendable. There really isn't a reason to pay or treat someone good anymore. As for as loyalty...there is none. You are there until the second they don't need you. My advice is to pick up a trade or a skill like HVAC, plumbing or mechanic, somthing a robot can't do (for now), a woman won't do, and the work can't be shipped to a Mexico. Fuck college, its a money trap too unless you go for somthing in STEM. Anyways hang in there. You are at the bottom, and the only way for you to move is up.

worked there for a few yrs , Slave labour, but. You have to know how to play the game. Whats the game you ask ? You're in the strongest fukin' union in the country. So when they bring u into the office to reprimand you or whatever. Dont sign shit. They will tell you. "You have to " and then u tell them . " no i dont" . This guy did ramble on but what he says at the end is spot on. The harder u work , the harder they will drive you. Do the minimal, its all about seniority let the 'new schmucks' do it.

they should not have started you full-time right away, you got to work into that man, that's crazy
