This guy must have a nice retirement fund ready for him. He was probably making 6 figures. Our UPS driver has been there for 20 + years and he’s making 6 figures

God bless him over the 30 years I wish I knew back in 1981 when I first got my CDL license I would have applied at UPS back then now I regret it because I would have had over 30 years also I could have been retired by now so now I'm still working at the age of 57 years old struggling trying to make ends meet

I did this job for a summer. It’s brutal. It’s how dumb people make something out of themselves. Not for everyone

i buy a lot from amazon and the first thing i ask is UPS bringing it to me. and if they say yes or don't answer. i take it out of the cart and find something else from someone else that will send it through anyone but ups. UPS SUCKS. just last week i had something coming in from ups and it never got here. when i called the woman said i could come get it or she will return to sender. the next day it was in new york, nowhere near where it came from.

UPS company is mocking me. I'm ready to start a trial on this company or something like that. I got a message from UPS about delivery on Jul10. And I didn't get it. Also, they didn't collect my phone number which the sender with 1 day delay. On July 15th their website suggested me that the delivery would be on July 16th and the website made me wait the whole evening and I got no delivery. At 6:20 pm I didn't meet anybody and I called the UPS help center. Their representative said that there's no delivery for this day. It's a mistake on UPS system and I should wait for the package by the end of July 17th. So I left the apartment. I came home and I got a note that it was delivered but nobody was at home. So after 7 days of the delivery day, 5 phones calls, 5 emails I still had no delivery. They left the sticker which suggested to pickup the package at their location point. The the next day when I waited to visit their location suddenly their website said that it's out for delivery and I had to sit at home from 4 to 8pm the third time during this week. I was waiting the whole evening. I saw a UPS truck leaving. I ran after it with no success and I found another sticker on the porch. So the delivery guy simply didn't want to go in the building which the first delivery guy did on the previous day. Nobody called me while every time I call their customer service they collect my phone number. I called UPS phone service again and I was said it will be on July 18. They made a request to bring my package to their location. Today it's July 18th. I called their customer service and I was said that the previous request was made incorrectly again and I will not have my package delivered today to their location. I paid for this item 3750 CAD and around 500 taxes which UPS collected. I think they lost my package and they hide this fact or they opened the package and they use it or something like that. Even if it's not I still feel like it's mockery. I've been mocked by UPS for 8 days in a row. Plus it'm afraid they may steal my 3750 CAD for item and 500 CAD in taxes.

Hats off to you. I couldn’t do that BS- carrying packages to houses, worry about getting dog bites, and dealing with a holes. Rather just keep driving an 18 wheeler drop n hook.

UPS driver here. My center is HUGE on safety, and first thing i notice in this video, not even 40 seconds in, he did something against UPS safety policy. Your seat belt should always be clicked in, before putting your vehicle into drive. That would of showed up on his telematics report, if his supervisor monitored it. I just find it funny how they let that part be in the video. The average person will look at that, thinking not a big deal, and i understand that. You will have to have worked at UPS, as a driver to understand LOL.

I have a thing for UPS drivers and FedEx drivers in DHL drivers any partial drivers they're rude most of them are route in a sense that they have no courtesy for the other drivers who actually drive big rig trucks they cut us off they take the dog space when they could be on the ramp they're just horrible people

Most underrated part of UPS- free food everywhere. I had a route for a while with 2 hotels with nice breakfasts, and every day they would both let me take as much as I want. Soooooo nice. Mayne like 5000 worth of free food in 6 months

30+ years as a loyal hard working driver but UPS probably hires stoned out punks for bullshit office work for less hours with only 1-2 years of experience and gets payed 2-3 times more then he does... Welcome to the 9-5 life!!!

Glenn Weeks (6 months ago)
I worked during the peak season ...at first it was okay but then they put me with a couple jerks and it was no longer fun. The first jerk driver was a chain smoker and dared me to complain. As the day progressed he started using slurs to put down people he thought were less than him. He had just gone through a divorce and of course it was all her fault. I got sick of listening to his big lies and I called his bluff. I told him that I would not be working with him again. He sorta made a stupid threat and I told him to go fuck himself and I got off the truck. The supervisor didn't even ask why I left the truck. They do not care about the helpers at all. They have some good guys but mostly jerks like the guy they put me with. I ended up just working about 4 weeks. I will never go back to be treated like they did me.

Jules Bono (6 months ago)
Chez nous, UPS est d'une ridicule inefficacité. 6 jours pour une livraison à 4km. Les chauffeurs doivent passer les 3/4 de leurs livraisons à mettre des avis de passage dans les boites aux lettres de clients absents, lassés d'attendre en vain une hypothétique livraison. Faut-il prendre une semaine de congés et guetter UPS sans bouger de sa fenêtre ?
