I did both during peak season. Honestly I was one of 2 people who actually made It through peak. Only reason I wound up leaving was just because pay is bullshit
Shabani Weird (14 days ago)
To all ‘I started with UPS 200 years ago made $8.00 an hour.’ We are in 2019 $8 from back in the days is not $8 from nowadays. Coffee doesn’t cost 25 cents anymore, a gallon of gas doesn’t costs $1 anymore. A house that was worth $250 000 is now worth $450 000. It’s not the same money you were making back the days. We live in a inflation...please spare us with ancient stories from the past it’s not enough.

i worked as a driver helper at ups during the holiday season and lemme tell you its not easy work but it's fun for the most part you're constantly on the move
Donald Mosher (16 days ago)
My advice is never work at UPS. They want young strong backs and work you like a slave at a concentration camp. I worked there for twelve years and decades later that wear and tear on your body catches up to you into a host of orthopedic problems and it is too late to make the connection for a lawsuit although orthopedists know that damage can stay dormant and make you miserable with chronic pain when you get old.

They shorted me 1.50 an hour in pay. Always shorted my hours. It was joke do not work for these people.

AnthonyMac, serious question here. I just listened to you mention the hardest to easist jobs around 11:15 and I want to know how many mem/women over the age of 35 performed those jobs? I ask because you look to be in your early to mid 20's and I dont mean that in a derogative way but im 35 and can assure you i'd be going for surguries within 6 mths to 1 yr of that crappy laborer type work. It sucks on so many levels I cant even articulate properly. 5 yrs ago it was all about how poorly walmart treated their workers and now its all about the even faster paced world of logistics and on demand online ordering. Its a living hell and capitalism never seems to quit but its the people at the bottom of the grand pyramid scheme that keep the all seeing eye hovering, i.e, detached from the rest.
James Joiner (20 days ago)
I feel your pain 1000% but I gotta bust your balls for a sec, in the background I see windex and lotion near a tv/pc lcd so I instantly assume you like to rub one out to a very clean screen. Like some real OCD sh!t, lol. Seriously tho I worked for a walmart dist center for 6-8 mths and it was the worst working part of my life.

I work pizza delivery and make $10-15/hour and get to listen to anything I want on the phone 75% of the day. Usually Bring home $75 in tips on an average day not counting the hourly wage. You just need a good car which can be hard to find. Subtract $1.00 for car repair or payments.

Jim joe Kelly (28 days ago)
Sucks ass when u first start out, switch you place to place and don’t give you any training in any new place they put you at. Unload was easy, load side is terrible because it’s an absolute mess all the time. They keep when they say ur good to go, so if they try to force you over to twilight or m, a sort just make some shit about another job, or a religious holiday or something. When I worked during peak season and they wanted me to work for a 12 hour shift, I just told them I was Jewish and I had to celebrate Hanukkah with family and they sent me home.

I dunno, seems like he's griping because you have to work so hard, welcome to the world my friend. I deliver propane for a living and we pretty much deal with the same thing. Start at 8 a.m., get off when you're finished, might be 5, might be 10, 6-7 days a week in the winter. You learn quick that if you want to get done and go home, get faster, you WILL get faster, takes time to get the speed down in anything, once you get that muscle memory and speed down, you FLY.

Its ironic how they pay you the minium poverty wage where you must rely on welfare and must work 2 full time jobs to rent an apartment; yet they expect like the maximum work ethic. Its Ironic how they give you the least amout legally, and they in return expect you go give them your blood sweat and tears
Choice or No Choice (1 month ago)
Bunch of pussies. 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 and up. 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.

Dude i was working at family dollar distribution through a temp agency. I was on induction unloading huge cages of boxes onto conveyer belt and made sure barcodes were facing up for 12 hours a day 2 breaks and a half hour lunch. It was very physically demanding labor intensive and was very hard. On day 5 i was told by guy that trained me that not only do barcodes have to be up but have to be a certain way to be read by scanner. You also are expected to do 130 percent to be hired on full time. So working there on my shifts we had 3 people on inducting and as night went on cage after cage of boxes stacked on us and were expected to stay until all cages were unloaded because we were only three people trying to keep up with around 8 forklift pickers or more.

Connor Cerf (1 month ago)
By the sound of it, UPS is what you make of it. I don’t work there but I plan on working full time to make a career after I get my associates because I don’t see a future for myself in school. My friend just started working there part time and after 5 months he got moved to being a driver (which is insane because some people wait years) and is making good money and hours. After about 4-5 years of being a driver you can make up to 40$ an hour on top of a shit load of benefits. If you want quick money start selling weed because it sounds like UPS is a long haul gig lol

VaNDaL253 (1 month ago)
i started at $15 an hour with $200 bonus a week. and over time after only 5 hours.....its damn good pay if you ask me
VaNDaL253 (8 days ago)
jdl 68 yea I don’t blame you. I already left UPS too. Since peak season is over, no more $200 weekly bonus. And the hours sucked, only 3-4 hours. And I’m not willing to travel 47 miles for work anymore , for peak season they provided us a free shuttle from Tacoma Wa, go Redmond WA, but that’s gone too now. I just started a new job at Northwestern Industries Inc in Seattle WA making $18/hour FT.
jdl 68 (8 days ago)
VaNDaL253 lets not forget here i was called a beast by my managers because i always was the first to finish im only 5'11 165 lbs 22 years old and was liked by every one of those managers they were good guys but the HR department lied and the union lied. I have that back pay in writing as well too bad id be going through too much trouble time and money to get it now ill never see that check which should of been in the 1k zone by now. Oh well but again i worked my ass off and had to pick up others slack. Boy i tell ya though opening up a beer at 6 or 7 pm and not having to worry about going in that time feels amazing but cant get too comfortable.
jdl 68 (8 days ago)
VaNDaL253 yeah then why at our metro well the metro in this city i quit a few days ago. We got no bonus we got 240 a week with no work on sundays no 25 hours a week more like 23 if that. Overtime doesnt exist unless you are liked i was but only given one day. On august 1 i was promised 13 dollar raise and for any day after that i would get backpay for it and since then i didnt get shit nothing no bonus nothing. I said fuck it and left i should of had another job lined up but im looking as i type this. I was tired of getting up at 2 am and driving thirty mins for 240 a week thats trash if i was given 500 a week i would be fine.
VaNDaL253 (8 days ago)
jdl 68 you don’t believe me!? Hahaha are you serious? Would you like me to give you the number to HR and you can verify it for yourself. I didn’t even mention the double pay on Sunday’s, that’s $30/ hour. You can even work up to 20 hours if you want! And anything after 25 hours you earn double for for the rest of the pay period (one week) . In Redmond WA.

Taylor Meabon (2 months ago)
There a plenty of videos from disgruntled and entitled ex employees who have some shit to talk. It's nice to see someone who differs, and gives a honest opinion of what to expect in the facility. Every building will differ wildly from each other. Hell even many of the shifts differ a lot. On my shift, sort aisle is the hardest job, but the shift after mine, sort aisle is the easiest job. So it depends quite a lot. But the core of this video really got it right: If you have a good work ethic, if you want a workout, then UPS can work. It's a great place to build a career if you don't have an education. It's a good place to get benefits as a part time employee that can serve you and your family. It doesn't pay a lot to start, but if you know where to look you can set yourself up for the rest of your life.

Man it's my second week, I had no idea there were so many ways to load a trailer WRONG. Thought I was doing good because my packages weren't piling up, until the overseer comes in the trailer every 5 minutes to tell you he doesn't like how you build your walls. It sucks. There are much easier ways to make 10 bucks an hour.

Everyone who wants to work better have thick skin. Females prepared to be sexually harassed it’s a different culture there. At my location people in charge were taking advantage of females having sex with them. Your checks may be shortened also. You are a slave there so expect to be treated like one. I only suggest this job to ppl who are out of options and are desperate. It’s long hours if your a driver. Ppl will be fucking around but stay focused on your jobs they have lots of immature ppl there and it’s sad cause there older too. I moved with purpose and was serious about my shit and I gained the respect of the ppl I worked with.

Uhhhh hmm, wait a moment... So you're telling me, that the UPS Hub who hired you, during peak season... after 3 or 4 days of the cornerstone training class, instantly put you as a pick-off on a load wall?? by the way.. somewhat of a high seniority position.. .. Sorry.. but that is literally beyond unlikely to me.... Cool story though.

It’s not worth it, they lied to everyone at my interview they told us we load for a year and we could be a driver, then it was changes to two years by my supervisor who was younger than me. Then the night manager said five years and I was like fuck no, I went from loader to small packages to unloader and then they told me no work for 5 months and I kept harassing them forever and they let me back. I then was put on line unloader which sucked I was too slow for it and I quit. I did loading for 5 months and It was the worse job I ever had but I stuck with it because driving is insane but they FUCKING lied to me and when I came back 5 months later only 1 person out of 30 in my interview was left. I might have been in it when I came back but 5 years of loading can go fuck itself.

Loken (8 months ago)
My first day was today as a unloader. Like this guy, I read the reviews, thought people were pussies for quitting and marched my stupid ass in there ready to get down with them packages. MAN... big ass 50/60/70/80 pound packages my supervisor want on the conveyor every 3 seconds. I was like "bruh I ain't no damn robot, I'm a human being. I just slammed 30 huge ass packages on that belt, give me a minute to regain my strength!" I was hacking, coughing, wheezing, just begging for that hell to be over. I think I got the trailer unloaded before dude was like "alright see ya tomorrow." I was so sore and happy to be free. My advice to everyone is not to listen to these bastards talking shit about people just not wanting to put in hard work. This is not hard work, this is fucking slave labor for minimum hours and minimum wage. Sadly I can't just walk off the job because I have a family to help take care of, but if you don't have to do this job-- DON'T. I'm already weeping inside about having to go back tomorrow. Ups has a high turnover rate with people just walking off the job for a reason.
