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

754 ratings | 75271 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.

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.

I used to work as a loader from 11pm to 2am shift @ the Cerritos hub in California. I loved it for the first 18 months. Made a lot of friends, good pay, etc. Anyway, I went to HR to put myself on the drivers waiting list and she told me the wait time was 9 years. Yeah... thanks but no thanks.

You got an hour break for 9 hours? I got 10 minutes for that long and the union didn't do shit about it. Part time workers weren't allowed to leave after 5 hours either. They were threatened with being written up or fired for job abandonment.

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 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.

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.

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.

2 types of people: Illogical workers- completing on or above targets EVERYTIME, paid the same. Logical workers- work hard but send back inconsistency to the system when achieving targets. It reduces stress, expectation. Why do people work infinitely more for the same pay, more stress and physical work?

You must be work at a hub... Cuz I work for UPS for 11 years before I quit... And we will only guarantee as a part-time employee three and a half hours we can work over three and a half hours but they wanted to take us off the clock at three and a half hours we were gone and the reason you work about 5 and you can leave because that's when the overtime comes in

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 (1 month 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..

Rocky Dennis MVP (1 month ago)
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.

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.

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.

So true I worked there in my area where I live and after a month I left . I unloaded the freight trucks andThey didn't care about you at all or the fact that sometimes everything that's bulk (70#s or more or 5ft 6ft in length) that had to go down a separate chute not on the regular conveyor would weigh sometimes twice my own weight (162). They also would lay me off for at least a day a week never had a full week. Not to mention everyone was fucking miserable.

You have to push yourself and get your body in shape and the work is easy. A man has to be able to do physical work, it's the way nature intended but society has taken the pressure off of us. Believe me, this work is not hard. You think an Olympic marathoner was born that fast for that long? There's guys out there that do this and work a second job. My buddy is 20 years part time and he makes a decent living with his job at the fire dept and is going to have 2 pensions. Once you get to that level, then make a judgement about ups.

UPS is awesome!!! Work hard and ask questions. That’s how you get promoted quicker. If that is your last day and want to come back. Tell them you always wanted to be with UPS and it’s something that is great for you and your family. They will also help with school if you decide too. Not many people have a chance at ups but you do need to have a diploma and can not drive until you are 21yrs old. Remember at UPS cross your T’s and dot your i’s. Be honest and don’t steal. Cause they are always watching when you least expect

***UPSER EXPERIENCE*** I work at Worldport in Kentucky. I was a union employee for 5 years before I decided to get promoted. I gained a lot of communication and leadership skills. I also got to know a lot of sups really well and learned a lot about the operation. Getting promoted was the best thing I ever did. From a management standpoint, we’re not picking on the hard workers or whatnot. We’re relying on the best people we have to get the job done with the best quality work. All the while we should be working with the employees that need more training and try to make them the go to people for when shit needs to get done. Not every sup does that but a lot do or at least try their damnedest. It does seem like you guys do things different at the smaller gateways like letting people leave before the sort is really done and using all the employees efficiently. Your supervisor should expect the best from you and you should expect the best from your supervisor. Hell expect the best from your fellow hourly employees. The better everyone works the better the easier the job is. I speak from experience.

I started package handling for UPS a year ago. I was 41 years old looking for an opportunity to change careers from middle management in retail to the shipping side of retail. Last year I was old, out of shape and wanted to quit every day during my shift. I'm now in the driver training program and will be making over 100k/year. Did you ever consider that the doors you load or unload are not as heavy as the doors you have to help others with? The job is hard, it will beat you down. It will make you want to either quit, or push yourself harder than you have ever been pushed both mentally and physically in your life. I'm now in the best shape of my life with muscles and a sixpack for the first time ever! At 41 almost 42 years old even! I'm about to make a six figure income for the first time in my life. I'm sorry you had to quit because of school, an education is very valuable! UPS is one of the few companies I know where having only a HS diploma still gives you an opportunity to make that kind of income. It's not the job that makes you quit, it's your motivations. Financial freedom was motivation to not quit. My mentality was to go to work and kick ass, not get my ass kicked!

This comment is very well written and constructive! It's true that there are times where quitting feels like an easy way out but putting in the work and dedication with a focused goal in mind will push you far in this job. I mention a little bit about this on one of my newer videos that discusses some of the benefits I've gained while working at UPS for the short time that I did. You're very correct that this is one of the few jobs (besides freelancing) that can net over 100k with benefits with just a HS diploma for sure. Congratulations for reaching financial freedom! You've earned it =)

Hey i just have a quick question, did you ever work holiday's. Such as 4th of July, thanksgivings or Christmas?
Fernando (3 months ago)
Akemi yeah i would like to see a video like that, especially because i dont plan on staying at ups forever
Akemi (3 months ago)
I just graduated from college with an OIM degree! But I'm currently pursuing freelancing with a hobby I picked up while at school and now I'm in a financially stable position. I will make a video about this on this channel if people are curious about it!

Akemi oh ok im doing the day shift. If you dont mind me asking what job do you have now?
Akemi (3 months ago)
I didn't work holidays. I had a weird schedule with the 4th of July though. Since I didn't work on the 4th of July, I worked the night shift on the 3rd of July and worked the preload shift on the 5th of July.

OG Krillin yup thats how it is the manger doesn't give a fuck if your body hurts he wants you to go faster there was times were i almost blacked out and he still wanted me to speed it up

MAFIAMAN I was just a package handler at fed ex just last month before I quitted within a week and a half of being there. During orientation they said our hours would stay consistent from 4am-9am, they would txt me every night before to come in at 5am then around 8am they’ll send me home. So I was only there for 3 hours everyday plus they moved me from unloading trailers to lifting huge boxes over 70 pounds I think they called them high C’s or icees I may have spelt that wrong but whatever overall it was the worst job I’ve ever had. I even asked the Manager If I can switch back to unloading because my back was killing me and he laughed and told me to tough it out so I ended up quitting right there.
MAFIAMAN (1 month ago)

I spent a year and a half at fedex. In that time i was a package handler, switcher, and ops administrator. I left the warehouse to be a driver. What this guy says is true. You show youre a hard worker your managers will exploit that and work you harder. Theyll send the lazy slow people home and keep the hard workers to pick up the slack. Dont get me wrong it was a fun job but its not for everyone. My first day i didnt even wanna come back for my 2nd.

I was thinking about becoming a switcher but I smoke weed. Do they drug test when promoting switchers? I know they do for management.
