Dave richardson (10 months ago)
This is management,they are not going to tell you the truth I know I had 23 years as a driver,no driver don't choose who gets delivered first,he goes by starting in the 100 section and go right down the line,during Christmas the package car is so full you have to make a tunnel to get to packages and hope you find every package for that stop,
M Craft (11 months ago)
This is such a load of shit. They do not deliver everything by end of day. Come to oshkosh Wisconsin and you will find out the drivers quit when they want and if your package is on the truck they take it back to the station for the next day and sometimes they will hold it for a week because UPS drivers are lazy. And on top of that they are good at dropping it off at the wrong address. Your customer support is as useless as a popcorn cart. So stop filling lies in the public.

There's another box coming so who knows if they'll leave it out there again. We ought not have ordered it till we could get the stuff sooner if it was left out there.

Lol as a "package handler" at ups, the job title should be changed to "package thrower" cuz that's what I do when I get pissed off when the belt gets clogged up with 20 different packages I just throw them bitches off the belt, other than that though I treat those packages real good

Prince Echo Lol I just started there 2 weeks ago bruh I didn't even get a full training day and now they got me loading a trailer plus 2 trucks gotta scan specific packages and load them in the trailer and make sure I don't mis place any packages. Just this past Friday someone called off and we got fucked real good that day and I had 15 misloads apparently that morning , I don't care though honestly. I'm doing the best that I can going through hundreds and hundreds of packages everyday, if they don't like it they can kiss my ass. And I heard they don't even pay for school, I'm in college and they never told me that they did pay for it. Anyways, it's a job and they gave me the job pretty quickly for that I'm thankful that I can keep going to school and pay all my bills and best of all no drug testing lol !
Prince Echo (2 years ago)
I hated Ups when I was in there. I was still new and they had me doing everything. They had me unloading the trucks, doing the small sorts, sorting out the big packages and they also had me load the trucks. It was hell. And they didn't even care that I was in college at the time. I got off way too late and started school the next morning very early.

+bertjesklotepino it is actually a pain in the ass, as 2 days can easily become 4 or 5 if its stuck on weekend, which actually was what i got through
bertjesklotepino (3 years ago)
DAMN!!!!! 2 days............... Suppose you had to get it from China, walking the distance. But yeah, 2 days man............... That indeed is something to worry about. It could be a matter of life or death. What if you get hit by a train during those days? You wouldnt have had the chance to see that new shit you ordered. What a disaster.
demont (3 years ago)
I have to agree, packages take about 2 days more than any other company, i would say FedEx is fast as fuck

It's a hard job no doubt but lots of rewards especially being a driver. Hardest job of all is loading but a good loader can load 4 to 5 heavy package cars.Its all about being in a mind zone no distractions,and balls to the wall.

UPS is the worst carrier in America!! A shipment was sent to me on a Monday, tracking stated a Friday delivery!! Got an email on Thursday that it would be delivered the next day and needed signature, so I took off a day from work and then got another email at 2:30 that delivery had been changed to Monday!!! Really!! I can mail a letter faster than you jokers!! NEVER SEND ANYTHING ups!!!

Worst Human resource department is located at the Charlotte, NC hub. Extremely rude ladies work there and act like we are nothing but idiots trying to obtain a job. I've applied for a position(s) in the area for over a year since leaving last season as seasonal help. I have a positive rehire status too (I hope so since I pushed almost 100 boxes an hour doing residential).

McDonald's workers get paid more than ups part time worker that's some bs. They say that ups have the best Union but in reality they don't really care about the workers taking everyone's hard earn money use it their own personal expenses. If you need health insurance ups is the job to work for I think it's tell to move to Fedx they pay more

TonyFreakinDanza (4 years ago)
As an exceptions clerk for 8 years I've realized how stupid some customers are. I've had people yell at me because their package didn't arrive early but just on time. I've also noticed that more than 90% of the time that packages are late, it's due to the consignee or shipper entering an incorrect address or forgetting an apartment # or having a rottweiler running loose in front of the house. Most customers are entitled pricks. (With that said some people have been very polite and understanding and they are most appreciated).

Rick James (3 years ago)
@Jorge Castillo Sorry, just saw this.   You don't give your age but overall it's a place for young people to start.  A CDL isn't  necessary to drive delivery vehicles or package cars as they call them but it would help you to either transition to feeders(tractor and trailer) or even possibly starting out on them if you don't mind doing the all night driving thing plus you would need to live in an area that has a hub.  Most of the delivery centers will only have a small number of feeder drivers to take out the days pickups and bring back the packages for the days deliveries.  As a rule though at UPS you start out part-time and wait sometimes for several years for a full-time job to open up.  It's hard work and long hours and not that fun for the most part.  It sucks really which is why you see so many rants.  The trade off is decent money and pension.  The pensions though not as good as they once were are still quite generous compared to most jobs have no pension.  Most pensions allow retirement at about 57 now I think.  It varies depending on which union local you are on.  Wages can be looked up online.  The whole  Teamsters/UPS contract is online actually.  My opinion, I hated most every day of my life but I retired at 47 years old so in the end I suppose it worth it but now I have pretty severe back problems and several surgeries from it so I would say my experience is about normal there.  If you have any more questions though I would be glad to give you honest answers.  You could probably do electrical work while you waited on a full time job  I suppose.  The part-time jobs don't pay very well now plus I think there's a wait, possible a year for benefits to kick in.  I've been out since 08 so someone else may  have better info on that.  If you like electrical work though and are certified and all my guess is that you'll be much happier doing that but it's your decision in the end.  Good luck

+Rick James hey man im looking into trying to be a ups driver. im currently a electrician. i am considering changing careers. i am just wondering if ups is a good place. seen ppl rant about being a bad company and all. i have my cdl permit amd soon goin to do the rest to obtain the cdl license .
callofdutyguy9 (4 years ago)
I'm only 19 and have been trying for about about a year and a half since I left high school to Get on. I have no problems having to wait and work hard just like the next person for a driving positon. And so you know, I live in Ventura county in southern California. I currently work for an appliance warehouse and have experience using forklifts, unloading trailers and parking class 6-7 trucks. I also want to get my CDL and learn as much as I can right now so my chances of being rehired are better. I'm also amember on browncafe, my username is specter208. Thanks for your advice!
Rick James (4 years ago)
@callofdutyguy9 It's a tough place to get on and then if you are planning on waiting until you can drive it can be many years in some some situations. As I said I'm retired but I do know that lots of the pension plans are strapped for money and are making changes like increasing the age for retirement. This effects you because if guys can't retire then there are less openings. If there is someone there you know and trust you should find out about how many part-time people would be ahead of you and roughly how many will retire in the next 10 years or so and a driver there should be able to give you a rough idea if you got on part-time how long it would take you to get to driving. There's no way to be exact but you should be able to get a rough idea to decide if it's worth it to wait around. Your current age and whether you are already married plays into it as well. I don't know where you are but if you really want to work there you could go to a hub and probably start immediately there but that has problems as well. If you could get a CDL while you're waiting it might come in handy as well. You don't need it to work there but once hired it might help you get a feeder job out of a hub or lots of different options, one being a sup. which could short cut your time to get to the better money. Good luck to you, if you ever have any questions I'd be glad to help if I can. There's a website called browncafe.com that may be of some help to you. Some of the guys there are pricks so if you run into one of them don't pay any attention. If you contact me again let me know what general area you are in. I still know a few people but it's unlikely I would know someone where you are.

Aten Akehnaton (2 years ago)
The amount of work you do should equal to your pay. At UPS it doesn't. People always say they know some guy who works there and makes over 100K a year with no education in less than 2 years. I've been there 13 years and I haven't ever met anyone like that, in fact I only know of about 3 people who make that kind of money and they've been there a very long time.
emello81 (2 years ago)
Your probably a lazy ass, that's why you don't work for them. Stick with your office job.
