well, finally worked 2 days, only 2 hours each day. PURE HELL!! When you stop and think.. I just unloaded two 55ft semi trailers in less than 2 hours, and made about 20 bucks.... Crazy!

To put it simple... It’s slave work. I’ve been there for about 3 weeks now and it’s just for the summer which means it’s like 105 degrees inside the back of the trailer. We work our ass off for a 10 minute break which is basically enough time to fill up your water bottle and walk back to your trailer. Most of the people that have been there are assholes and expect you to be able to the same work as them after a week. I was disappointed after my first check too. My last job was at a car wash and i hate i ever complained about it 😂 all in all don’t apply unless you like slaving for like 250 a week. Honestly it would be easier if we can have headphones and listen to music it would be somewhat better but i don’t think there would be a difference. Management and supervisors will yell at you to go faster no matter how many packages are coming down the belt just ignore them and work at your own pace. They don’t pay you enough to pass out in the back of a trailer from exhaustion and the heat. You’re not a robot lol

Do they allow you to pick if you want to be a loader or if you want to be a sorter?

I just started two Sundays ago making $13 an hour thanks to the newly ratified contract, and I've already started working by myself without a trainer. I work in the second largest facility in the network, and although the job is tough, everything is good so far. Don't do this job if you are lazy and unfit, it won't work.

Here in Colorado, the pay is $15 an hour, but the average price of rent for a one room apartment is over $1,000 a month. Very expensive to live in Colorado. I agree with most of what you say. UPS is moving toward technology and does require college degrees for upward management positions.The pre-loader position is a sooo physically demanding position! You will be sore always and you will lose weight. Eat lots and lots of protein and you will build muscle. I have been with the company for less than 4 months and never had any training. I was told about the numbered shelves and "irregs". It was sink or swim. So you are lucky that an attempt was made to upscale the work of Pre-loader (Package Handler). We are the lowest of the low. Just today, a DRIVER who got a DUI citation, was saying that he was okay with having to work as a pre-loader because it was soooooooo EZ and he was making $30 an hour (claimed it was a little less than what he made driving), and the shift ended at 9 am. He had an EZ slide on the pen, but to brag about how he made twice what we made, makes me speachless!!! I bust my ass and he says it's EZ!!!! OOOhWee, not good!!!!! If you do more than most or try to stand out, you will be sorry! I have never had a UNION job. If I bust my ass and the person next to me is a sluggard, it makes no difference except more will be expected of me. The pay is the same regardless! Did you hear that? This is not performance based job. Management will single you out and try to make you harder. I didn't believe it at first. I thought my performance would be acknowledged. It was in little, insignificant ways. Or in other words, working hard, busting your butt, will not MATTER!!! There are at least 2 people on my pen who are sluggards! And that doesn't include the "DUI Driver". Not counting the "DUI Driver", pre-loaders make the same regardless of the work done. All you have to do is show up on time and do not have any misloads. Life at UPS will be good then.

No you dont. Our union book says all you have to do is work as hard as you can SAFELY. You CANT get fired for being too slow. If that was the case then all the old ladies would get ran out of there.

I have been with UPS over 20 years. I have done it all. Don't make the same mistake I did. UPS will abuse you, destroy your body and toss your ass out like TRASH. Fat Shop Stewards and Union Leaders are in bed with management and have already sold YOU out! I just resigned from the Tyranny of UPS after winning a lawsuit against the Company. They will retaliate against any employee and covertly attempt to terminate any under paid slave (u.p.s. worker) if the employee exercises tbeir union rights or if management gets any hint that you may be suffering from an injury. To them you are just a beast of burden and when you start getting old ......figuratively, they plan to take you out back behind the barn and put the old mules down. At my HUB center a driver with 3 months shy of being able to retire with a full pension and thus full health benefits for him, his spouse and 3 minor children got an aggressive form of cancer preventing him from working the last 3 months he needed for full retirement and health benefits. UPS denied him and his famiy from his full pension and healcare coverage as a result, leaving him and his family in financial ruin from huge medical expenses. He lost his house and eventually died leaving his family destitute. Dozens of drivers tried to negotiate on his behalf to offer our collective time towards retirement to make up 3 months for him. UPS said no and the Teamster Union bent over grabbed their ankles and begged management for more abuse. Don't take my word for it. Research the endless case histories of veteran UPS victims. You have been warned.

BagelXC (3 months ago)
Honestly, I got say I am a pretty good worker at my hub for UPS. I give it my all the whole time I'm there and everybody loves me for it. At one time I resented everyone for constantly relying on me to do everything but as time went on I grew to love it. Sure it sucks loading a trailer meant for two people alone but it helps everyone out and the smoother everyone else has it the more everyone loves having me around and its all thanks to everyone in the first place for teaching me the big techniques for loading faster, and better. I am so fast I can pretty much load half a trailer in 1 hour alone with decent enough walls. I average a PPH of 480 every day when I load. The highest I got was 561. The supervisors all love me and because of that i get some special treatment like which belt i want to be at for the day, but i never get a choice of the trailer since they stick me in the hardest trailer for whichever belt i'm at :/ I have learned all the numbers at my hub so i have done pick off for the heaviest belt we have and i got to say i like it more than loading but pick off is harder than loading. It's harder because you gotta constantly move fast and be able to tell where each package goes by just a glance although it is easier on your back but your arms are gonna be tired, plus another thing that makes pick off hard is you gotta rely on your loaders because if they can't keep up then the belt gets clogged and you gotta figure out what to do with the packages or you can just turn the belt off and watch as the supervisors flip out wanting to know the reason. Again i get special treatment so they let me off with a little head shake and tell me to just run the belt again. The hardest spot at UPS has the be sorting the packages to the pick offs... trust me its shitty you have to go even faster than loading, and pick off. You need to know which belt to send the package to with just a glance and be prepared to lift heavy packages the full 5 hours your working trust me you get no break. Although there are tons of lazy people at UPS but nobody minds them since they have seniority and people like me pick up the slack for them. So what i'm trying to say by kinda bragging although i'm not because in reality i am pretty much being taken advantage of but i don't mind since i love doing hard work... When you go to UPS you make sure your ready to work and bend at the knees all you gotta do is have the stamina and some decent strength and your pretty much set the rest you'll learn from the veterans whether they are lazy or not like how to stack easy, reorder the packages on the rollers, wrap the scanner with tape, use the load stand quick to make sure you reach the top of the ceiling, where the bar code is on the packages to scan, how to use some of the crappy scanners, make good walls, learn when to push up your rollers before you get screwed over, learn which rollers suck and learn how to deal with those sucky rollers, learn who your coworkers are and learn how they work, move, load, and build, because if your like me then whenever you have a free second your gonna have to go help them because you can't help it you gotta keep moving. and learn how to salvage crappy walls, and the most important one learn how think and move because if you want to break a pph of 500 and make some good walls at the same time then ooohhh boy.... i got nothing i just broke it one day and i did it 2 weeks in a row. I guess all you need to some experience like knowing what boxes your gonna get and learning from past walls how the box will fit sooo good luck cuz honestly it ain't too hard and for those that say we treat the packages horribly its most the noobs that do that or people who just don't care anymore. Good luck and make sure bend at the knees never use your back to lift you can still be fast without hurting yourself sooo good luck people btw not sure if you should trust my paragraph i'm just 19 years old i weigh 130 pounds and i can bench 140 pounds I'm 5'7" and i have worked at UPS for 7 months and in 2 more years i can be a driver because i got a special deal with my hub soooo yeah if i can do it you can too although it might take you longer than me to go full time but good luck cuz you never know whats gonna happen :)

Hey thanks for your experience and info, do you think they would hire me as PTer being in highschool? Im going into senior year and I will turn 18 in September. In my state minimum wage for a Part time job is $7.25/hr and the Package Handler job UPS near me starts at $11 and can go up to 13.50/hr. I think its well worth it being 3 dollars more even 4 maybe

To anyone reading this it is the worst company in the world to work for if you are a driver then you make some money and you have a few benefits if you are not a driver and hold any other position you are a nobody you are dispensable nobody cares what you say nobody cares what you think and nobody cares about your personal life just shut the fuk up and move those boxes and if you're anything less than fall down on your face grateful for this opportunity then you're fired. From a customer standpoint do not ship through UPS we shoot baskets with your boxes in the garbage cans when we get angry we throw your boxes from the line into the truck bouncing them off the door that separates the cab and the back of the truck I cannot speak for everywhere but this is true in the Kankakee Illinois facility watch your ass people

Gail Cook (5 months ago)
So I just ran across this. I have worked for u.p.s. for 22 years. Ontario California hub. I am currently recovering from a hip replacement surgery, work related wear and tear. The exact management people who never listened or cared about my suggestions for a safer work place, are now calling me to see how I'm doing?!* it is a horrible place to work. They only care about numbers and safety is at the bottom of the list. It is nothing like the way the company portrays it in the video. Do not make u.p.s. a career. It will ruin your body and your spirit if you.let it. If other u.p.s.ers have a different experience I would say that is not the norm. If you have worked in Ontario, California hub you will be able to relate. Go to school, use your brain not your body. Even though eventually you make a decent wage, as I am discovering, it is impossible to enjoy life when you are in constant pain
Gail Cook (4 months ago)
@Dennis Pluto thankyou for your reply. We are the *truth*, we are living examples of how the company works (or dosent work) if safety were #1 we would be provided the time and equipment we need. Just like in the SAFETY VIDEOS. It's shameful. I wish you well and hope you recovery enough to enjoy life. We all deserve that. Sincerely, Gail
Dennis Pluto (4 months ago)
Gail Cook you are so right I have knee replacements spinal decompression surgery after 12 years there and that's when we made 16 hr. In 1989 even thought I collect a ups pension it's not worth the pain and destruction of your body

Back in 95 I was working for Sears and was going to College, I picked up a second job at UPS. This only lasted a month and was by FAR the worst company to work for. I can't believe this dude thinks Unions are a plus. I quit after and month because I realized the faster I worked, the faster I went home. Nice but less pay. No team work at all, Boss in a white shirt a tie yelling the whole the time. Unions kill team work, every man for himself. If you want a raise the Union has to get it for you. it was 110 degrees at 1am no fans, and the management always asked what I would do if there was a fire? Every day, what do you do if there is a fire? Unions are for people who have no problem doing what they are told whether it makes sense or not. I ended up getting on at a semi conductor company a month later working three days a week 24.5 hours and had four days for school. I also got personal absent days and vacation days to start along with 5 holidays a year along with insurance. I went full time a year later, six months after that I had received my third raise sense starting the job. I also got three bonus a year on top of that. This company treated me like I was a person for 20 years. I loved almost every day I went to work. In fact it wasn't work most of the time. I got paid to think and to troubleshoot. I got to work with Engineers and saw what a good team could do. I got raises based on what I did, not what the Union thought I needed.

Zach Hayes (5 months ago)
20 hours a week although it’s hard work it’s really not that hard. My hardest days are when I’m on call and come back. The company is about time so if you’re not happy time will fix it. After the first year you’re getting paid holidays, two weeks!!! of vacation, a raise, and really good health insurance, which I haven’t had since I was eighteen because my parents are shit. Pension, 401k, opportunities to move up, I got my first A to C car basically based off the fact that I work at UPS. Twenty hours a week gives you plenty of time to figure out another way to make money or chill if the hours you’re working are really so damn hard. Basically this job blows all fast food and retail positions out of the water. Cons would be if they don’t deliver on promises, if amazon takes over, communication about the new contract is poor and they have had us grouped up several times where they could have brought that up. Also ALL of the older guys complain about back injuries, do not want.

This place is a joke for Working class people interested in taking advantage of the tuition reimbursement. By the time you get off, you're too exhausted to really apply your self to education, plus do the math. It's 10/hr and they reimburse 5k a year. That's 2.50 and hour more. If you worked at Amazon for example, where it's 15/hr, you'd have 5k in savings after taxes and they still also offer tuition reimbursement. Ups really doesn't offer anything good in terms of benefits, pay, and your paying a fucking union. A union who is not interested in helping working people at all . It's a joke.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 (8 months 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 (6 months 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 (6 months 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 (6 months 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 (6 months 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.
