Honestly, I’m glad UPS actually cares about how the trucks should be loaded At Walmart, everything is literally thrown in there & they also put random pallets inside which creates more work for us unloaders

This is nothing I work in Ontario, CA twilight hub. We do about 200 trailers in 6-8 hours. My highest pph was 700 but i could do it for 8 hours. These guys say they do 800pph but can only do it for an hour. I love UPs, i get paid to workout.
James Rockwell (5 months ago)
You suck at loading
Modemhead (6 months ago)
My all time record for loading is about 800 PPH, and I wasn't 'power loading'. Didn't have anyone breaking my jams either. Wall quality was on point too. Beat that.

Aten Akehnaton (11 months ago)
Man yall got it easy. I used to have to do more than that by myself. Then again, that's why building has one of the highest turn over rates in my region, and I cannot forget to mention lowest peer review. Don't get me wrong, I'm not proud, I was a fucking moron to do that much work. This looks like absolute cake to what we have to deal with. In a building with 80 employees tops, we'er always understaffed by 10 or so and today we had at least 6 no call no shows I know of. Wait I just realized this video is from 7 years ago. Been there 13, not sure if it was this bad 17 years ago. I do know it's been getting worse every year though.

I work at the main hub in Louisville, where in the world is this place?! My hub just updated they're equipment and got rid of pick off. It's crazy!
theangryemonerd (1 year ago)
I like how you stack them. where I work at they want you to stack them in a manner where the boxes are even. its total bullshit too because as long as the entire row doesn't move I think you are good. I noticed some of your rows the boxes are not leveled at the same size.

This is a light sort. I load trucks that go to CACH at my hub and it's always between 1400-1600 a night for me.

There's one in near down town right by the University of Illinois at Chicago, it's called Jefferson Hub cause it's on Jefferson St n Roosevelt Rd
familyphotoshoot (2 years ago)
+MASERATI BOYZ Are you talking about the CACH Hub in Hodgkins or one of the ones in the actual city? I load at CACH and it's super easy. The volume is super high so they don't make us scan packages, just visually check labels. I'll do like 1800-2200 packages a night.
MASERATI BOYZ (2 years ago)
It's not hard at all it's just hard on your body, I'm not sure if you will be an unloader, loader, or sorter it all depends on what position they put you in for. From what I heard loaders and package sorters get more time than unloaders because we're the first ones out the building. But it shouldn't be that bad I know a few girls that are loaders just take your time that's what I did before I used to go fast but it's not stated in your contract of how fast you must work so don't work too fast or too slow but at a moderate steady pace
Alisha A (2 years ago)
I have a interview coming up for that exact same location i choose the sunrise shift. Will I be loading trucks or unloading. Loading looks super hard
Muilisx (2 years ago)
ohh the memories..spent 2 years loading and 3 years as a pick off. Pick off is the place to be

Jewish Person (2 years ago)
UPS, FedEx, DHL, USPS, etc... are the unsung heroes. Thank you guys for your awesome service! I know you catch a lot of shit for damaged packages but nobody realizes how many packages go through your places.
Jewish Person (1 year ago)
Yeah I worked for UPS in college like a lot of people, that shit is hard work, and people who do it as a career, you guys make my business and let me live a comfy lifestyle. Seriously you and truck drivers thank you!
Mike Williams (1 year ago)
it least you can stand and load top level....we have to stand on a boom that is three feet off the ground and still struggleto the roof.
Frank Castle (2 years ago)
You're welcome it's hard doing this stuff, but us loaders and unloaders have fun doing it lol

vaughn pounds (3 years ago)
@Marcos I think you are the loser. Why the hell would you get on here and talk crap about someone doing a hard honest days work? Most of these guys load/unload and are in school and this is a night job that is helping pay for there school. Don't be so quick to judge. You have no idea what any of these guys story is. So maybe you need to stop talking shit to hard working people and take your stupid ignorant ass back to Mexico or wherever you are from. The only loser here is you. . If it wasn't for these guys you wouldn't get your packages on time or at all for that matter.
Chad Groom (3 years ago)
Seeing 6 figures a year? Better bennies than anyone else? Yes definitely for losers Marcos
T Marginau (3 years ago)
Break time?? Talking? Ha!! That was unheard of where I worked(loader at Greensboro hub). 6 or 7 hrs, no break, no food. They say bring snacks but shit, when was I supposed to eat? Anytime I slowed down to catch a breath I'd get a "Let's go!!" from a sup or lead(who were cool btw, just merciless). Free benefits are great but you DEFINITELY work for them for that year. They make SURE of it. I won't even get into hardware..loading carts and carts of everything 75lbs and over from the floor into the truck at the END of the shift. It depends on where you work, who you work with, what position(loader/unloader), and when you start. I started during peak season(the WORST time for a newbie..even vets complain) I laugh at people who sit in offices their whole lives, complaining about "lazy people" stealing their "hard earned" money. That statement would be more realistic if they excluded the hard earned part. Also, those who call these ppl losers, you shouldn't look down on someone who does jobs you wouldn't last a week doing.

Yep it's called the union..If you don't get a break they can get in big trouble

GmJunky87 (3 years ago)
I worked in a hell hole, umm... I mean hub for 5 years. Our hub was that old that the trailers sat like 4 inches above the dock so that packages wouldn't flow in. I got fired because I loaded my two doors and the sloth next to me, his doors were the whole way up so I went in to load one of his doors. the roller line he had had NO STOP at the end so the packages just went all over the floor. I loaded, he came into HIS door and he forced the packages down the line which hit the back of my legs and almost knocked me over. We exchanged obscenities and went fist to cuffs. We both got fired he got his job back because he had like 2 months more seniority than me. Only good thing about that job was the pay and benefits (I was article 22). Everything else a fucking nightmare!

ex0gen (4 years ago)
lol you guys are totally not following methods when you guys were loading (not bending knees, not left to right, etc).  If I was your supervisors we would have to fix that.  
Mike Williams (1 year ago)
where we run you have to double wall....the main wall is 60 centermetres (2foot)but behind it is a small trench wall half the size of the major wall.....beause we would recieve incompatables with all shaped freight you have to have the secondary wall as a spill zone to dump 40 lb boxes that are 6x6 inches and lengths that cant be stacked....we have to stand on telescopic booms to reach 12 foot high ceilings.
ex0gen (1 year ago)
+Operator Bunz It's simple. Either you're loading according to methods or you're not, right? Either there are "T" shapes, you're loading 18-24 inches wall depth, front to back, 3 level shelves minimum, above waste height, back to front, etc, etc, etc; either you're doing that at the minimum pace or better, in a way which is safe, meaning not putting yourself in unnecessary risk of injury, or you aren't. All of those things are quantifiable. There is nothing about the job which is subjective. I've worked at UPS for almost 20 years. Now, I don't agree with micro managing mentalities. I agree you should "let the man load." But at the same time, 'then do the job the way I told you to do it" and I will stay out of your way, is more or less my attitude. You don't do it like I asked, then I'm going to talk to you, even if you refuse to do it, then that's what progressive discipline is for. Not that I want to take it there, and in my experience, rarely do I have to, because employees respect and like me. But if it has to come to that, then the jobs till has to get done.
Operator B (1 year ago)
+ex0gen unless you can match or beat my load rate of 600+ (that's average, get some coffee in me and I can crack out over 850) and the quality of my walls, let me load how I wan't. That was our biggest problem at FedEX, fucking managers would come in trying to "teach" us how to load "properly" and not only completely fuck our walls up but get us backed up and then bail out when they realized they weren't helping at all. Yes, if you see someone doing some safety hazards, correct them. But if the loader is killing it, and has a record of doing great work with none to minimal safety violations or work injuries. Let the man load.
ex0gen (4 years ago)
Because the rollers should be close enough where you can pivot and not have to take steps. What you do is as you start on the right side you face 45 degrees in the direction of the TOFC rollers.  From that position you pivot and load and when you get to a point half way through the wall, you reposition to face the opposite way 45 degrees so now you are facing half way between the TOFC rollers and the wall again, except now you are facing the right side (where previously the left).
alexis manuel (4 years ago)
Left to right method its just a waste of time! Why would you walk back to the same place you started if you can just start from the left to right and right to left?

God as soon as I heard the sound of the rollers i started having fucking flash backs and had to stop the video. fuck that job. The cold ass winters, the summers where I felt like i walked into a pizza oven every time i walked in the building, the sounds, the shitty little announcements telling us to take relief. I'll never miss that hellhole. To this day I still have nightmares about the fucking "irregs." Best day of my life was the day i quit.
