Do You Still Work At UPS???

I worked for UPS, as a counter person, in the deep south, for approximately six months. It was by far, the worst job I ever had! I was called every name in the book, including racist, if a customer's package wasn't ready and waiting. When I turned in my two week notice, I got fired. I am happy for those who make a good living for UPS, and I know some do, but I hate the way they run their company, and how I was treated. I pretty much got stuck on the counter with five minutes training, and abandoned. Then, when I couldn't figure out how to do something(like shipping a package overseas), nobody was available to show me. And nobody would come forward to defend me against the onslaught of angry customers. I left a job at Walmart, for a dollar more at UPS. I should have stayed at Walmart. At least you could get a manager to come deal with an unhappy customer. So all you Walmart haters, go get a UPS job, please! I have only worked a few side jobs since UPS, since I screwed my spine up, lifting heavy packages, while dealing with nightmare people, alone. (UPS also told me that back injuries don't come on gradually. It either happens all the sudden, or it didn't happen.) I do like that the guy reads his Bible every morning. I probably should read mine more. Because every time I hear about UPS, I get angry about the nightmare that I went thru. Is hating a company a sin?

Itd be nice to be a UPS driver but in a different state every day. Sometimes youll see mountains, or the desert, or sometimes in the fog in a forest
N1ght L1gh7 (2 months ago)
Do you have assigned trucks or do you just take a truck that’s ready to go?
onetonk5 (2 months ago)
Most people have assigned routes that have the same truck each day. There is full in “cut drivers” that run the routes of people on vacation, or sick and so forth

You left out the part where you don't even try to deliver the package and just smack a failed deliver notice on the door, then drive off.
W Clark (3 months ago)
@Zow Err I know the Purolator driver because he actually delivers stuff, so I've seen him. The fucker from UPS just dumped my stuff at a UPS store without even trying to deliver it. Two different packages, two days in a row. Didn't even bother to stick up a notice for the second one. Since I was home all day both days, I know there was no attempt.
Zow Err (3 months ago)
Hello no, I don’t want the same packages on my truck for three days. I’m getting that shit off one way or another, unless it’s a sig req. and you’re not home. Get to know your UPS driver and he will work with you. I have customers who are good to me so I’ll go the extra mile to make sure they get their stuff.

I know the UPS life I worked as a trucker in a russain Wearhouse and boy it's a hard life. With just 14 trucks in our fleet but our Fridays were so busy our Wearhouse was stacked to the brick and if your package arrived in bad shape or even damaged it gets kicked and tossed around very bad to get things done fast

Denis Berduo (7 months ago)
Is it worth being a ups driver right now im 18 yrs old
onetonk5 (7 months ago)
Denis Berduo - depends do you like physical, fast paced work that’s outside. Do you like long hours? Do you mind mico-management? If you want to work at UPS, the younger you start the better in my opinion.

I would have done this job, but my eyesight is so poor now, I'm borderline legally blind! Couldn't stand the possibility of running over somebody or smashing into another's car and face the severe reprecutions and feelings of guilt. My friend's brother who's two years older than me has worked for UPS for 20 years. It's a great career.

Mike Auger (9 months ago)
Enjoyed this video bro. I'm old school....as in...graduated high school in 1982. So I wish I had a name to attach my TYVM to because I would like to give credit to someone that has a real name, and not some YT avatar tag. . . know what I mean? . . . name's Mike btw. . . . . Anyway, I arrived to what I have figured out as the crossroads of my life. And this crossroads brought me to applying for a position for what I USED to do, in another lifetime, 16 years ago, as a delivery driver. And the time I'm referring to is the "now", the now time in my life that has brought me to UPS as a delivery driver. I've had other jobs since then, many in fact. Don't know if you've ever heard of the phrase "what goes around, comes around". . . well. . . life has come full circle for me. I'll save the explanation about what this actually means to me for another time. But for now, lemme tell you about what I think of your video; I love it ! ! ! :) I only had to see it once to figure out what and why I loved it so much. Why? Because you hit the bulls-eye for the ingredients to the perfect story. Which is the 5 "W"'s; "W" ho you are; a regular guy, (someone 99% of us working stiffs can relate to) "W" hat (what you do, and how you do a REAL days work "W" here (refers to the area in your life, in your world, when you have to do what you do) "W" hen (the timeline in ones life that calls you to do what you need to do, in order to get where you want/need to go) "W" hy (to show what it's REALLY like to REALLY know what it feels like to do a REAL days work) I'm looking at the date when you made this video bro, and I realize that you made this about 5 years ago. Which means you will most likely not even see my reply to your YT post. But I don't care. I don't care because I'm willing to take a chance that JUST IN CASE you DO see this, it'll make it all worth it for you. Here's what I got from this short 4m17s clip; - you're a regular guy - you're just 99% of us regular guys just trying to make a buck in a tough, modern day world - you start your day like probably 99% of North Americans do - you LOOK just like 99% of North Americans do when they wake up first thing in the morning - you DO exactly what 99% of regular North Americans do when they wake up in the morning (why am I using the term "North Americans"? because I'm a Canadian, up north of you) - your expression says exACTLY what 99% of us North Americans think about when the alarm wakes us up, and what we are thinking about the second our feet touch the cold hard floor - you show us what 99% of North Americans do for a living, each and every DAY - your music score couldn't have been a better choice bro. . don't know what that track is called, but it's PERFECT ! ! Because just with hearing the musical notes being played, seeing you in the camera frame, I'm able to see, hear, feel, sense, understand, ALLLL the 5 "W"'s of what brought you to this moment man - when I said earlier just from looking at you in camera, I can tell exactly what's going through your mind. it's not fake, it's not exaggerated. . . it's REAL. It's as real as the expression on your face, as real as the tired look in your eyes, it's as real as the age displayed on your face, and you don't even have to explain it to anyone. It's as clear as when you see a look of anger or happiness on someones face. you see it, you KNOW IT ! ! ! ! - and within a tight time-frame of a mere 4m17s you were able to tell us, well, at least ME anyway, you were able to tell us that ALLLL of this took place in one. . . long. . . 8-10 hour . . . work day !!! - and then if that's not enough, you steer us smoothly, and effortlessly toward the final "W". . . the WHY. By showing us the quintessential example of why most of us do ANYTHING. . . for the children. How do you do that? you show a short clip of you coming home, coming through the door, your daughter greeting you. . and not JUST greeting you. . . showing us the "WHY" by giving you that million dollar smile to remind you, and to NOT forget WHY you do what you do. And you reciprocate by giving your daughter a big bear hug and a smile when you both lock eyes on each other. And that's not all man. You brought this story the full circle about why you, WE all do what we do. And each of us have our own reasons for doing what we do. Hope you see this, hope your not board, hope you like it ! :)

I'm a retired single UPS driver. Most of my coworkers we're divorced or Unhappily Married. Working long hours till 9pm is asking for a divorce. I had girlfriends that couldn't wait till 9pm so they cheated on me. They couldn't understand why I was getting off so late.

I used to work for the "A" Holes ... Ran 125 to 140 Stops A Day , and was told that wasn't GOOD ENOUGH ... !! I was young then . Supervisor got in the P 500 package car with me one day , had a clipboard and a stopwatch in his hand . Said I had to run so many stops in a hour . I SAID , I guess the next thing out of your mouth is about SAFETY ..? I Told him to put his seat belt on , and close the door ...!! And we went through residential area 's 35 - 40 mph .. to try to make his delivery times of 1 hour .That Company IS RIDICULOUS ... !!!!

There are many paths to finding god. This is a fantastic video and you show yourself performing the job exactly as it should be done. Maybe some driver release could have been more out of sight...but good 3pts. Good check on mirrors. Good glace over left shoulder. Good optimum carry. Proper carry aid use and methods. Wish they were all like you. You seem to have pride in your work and like your job. I am happy for you. Thanks for sharing. Hope you got no grief from your 1st amendment creativity.

Hello great video! 👍 my husband works for ups driving! Any Tips on how to deliver more packages in less time? He says he has trouble finding the package in Truck! Thank you🙏
onetonk5 (10 months ago)
Odalys Muñoz - thank you. If you can’t find the pkg within a min and you will be in the area during pickups leave and do it later. Check on the shelf below if 7900 look at the 8900. Just be safe and honest and you will have a long career ahead.

How do drivers know where to go? Is everything GPS or do you just know your routes to the T
onetonk5 (10 months ago)
As of about a month ago the diad’s have a making system that shows the path. But if you have done a route for a week you can get to 99% of your stops with no assistance.
