Management is always cackling about safety, but they ramrod the delivery drivers with phone calls designed to push the drivers mentally/physically and to the point where they are insinuating that laws need to be broken. UPS needs to stop using stops/deliveries as a number base, and start using packages delivered.
Rich Hogan (15 hours ago)
UPS is top heavy with management. To much micro management. Technology has not been friendly to the delivery drivers.

union system is underdeveloped in the usa. where i live the members of the union have to vote to accept or reject the deal that the union make. and it is divided into what type of job it is (so a trucker can not vote on deals for packers and vica verca)
janjancummings (2 days ago)
well depend how you look at it. in my eyes it has always been underdeveloped for the task it is suppose to have, even back in its hayday . and today,as you said . it has sacrificed its core purpose to become a tool for collecting fees and dues. not to help the worker have a safe work environment, and a livable salary
Coffee Talk (2 days ago)
Actually I think it's a bit over developed here. Whatever it started out as has been stripped away and all that is left is a system designed to collect fees and dues.

Yeah that's messed up ive worked for ups in raritan center in nj. I did the christmas help so i was helping the driver. The uniform there they gave me there smallest uniform i was swimming in.I swear every door i would go to the people would say oh how cute U no ive got the hat on this over sized jacket and pant's it was ridiculous.I had went to work one day i guess i met my driver around 3 or 4 and i worked I think i worked 6 or 7 hour's with my left hand in a cast. I broke my wrist jumping out of the car. long story. but anyway they called me into the office the next day and apparently had to let me go which was bull shit I even told the boss or supervisor whoever it was hey look i had no problem what so ever working yesterday. I was able to manage even with the biggest packages. and what the boss told me was we cant be liable or responsible if something happen's. And i was livid really what the hell else is going to happen. Ive already broke my wrist and it was my fault.Plus with a solid cast on my arm up to rite before my elbow so i could still bend it what was really going to happen my arm is was protected buy the cast.Ups sucks ass. They can burn for all i care.

People are very divided over what I had to say about UPS. Lots of people agree with my comments, and there are some who are die-hard UPSers that are pissed with me for the expose, (even though they never deny the working conditions, they just cuss me out for not liking it).
Will Powers (6 days ago)
I've been at UPS since 1985, it's a very tough job. The failure rate for new drivers is 85%. It seems farm kids or ex military are the only ones that seem to succeed lately. Our hub is very short drivers this peak and many part time and full time managers are doing routes. This job will break you unless you are physically and mentally tough. 3 years to go and then I'm going to enjoy my well earned retirement !
El Mofles (10 days ago)
He'll UPS is not everyone. F*** yeah it's hard at the beginning at least. Been there since high school. Worked the local sort and pre load for 11 years. Now 31, making bank with gravy routes of 60 to 80 deliveries . With 230- 300 mi a day 😅😣. Well now with peek hitting 90 to 115 deliveries. Same amount of mileage 😊

I just quitted ups yesterday i worked there for about a month and a couple of weeks and let me tell you it fucking sucked especially right now since its peak season its super busy. it was horrible i had aches and pains and bruises all over my knees and body my supervisors were actually cool but i could tell they had a shady side a couple of days ago i worked from 12:00–10:00 pm and i asked one of the supervisors since the coordinator wasnt there hes the one who lets people go usually but he wasnt there that time So I asked one of the other supervisors if I could go home and she said nobody’s leaving yet and I’m like are you serious ive been here for 10 fucking hours and she said well our system is fucked up like thats not my problem i worked over time im leaving so i just left and ohh i never got my pay stub ive asked for it several times never got it apperently they dont have them which is a load of bullshit fuck UPS

I was never able to get a pay stub either. They kept telling me to use one of the kiosks, but they would never print.

Coffee Talk (19 days ago)
Was that so hard to make a legitimate argument instead of just hurling insults? You like the job, that's fine. Your hub is run better than the one where I was stationed, that's fine too and I can respect that. But just insulting people because you don't like or understand what they said doesn't help you make any kind of point, it's a waste of time, and that I can't respect or take seriously.

not sure havn't seen him since i was a kid, know he was a drunk, and a drug addict, since the internet is a little past his time i'm guessing not a troll, just a worthless @$$hole, point is i've been at ups for a couple of months part time, best company i've ever worked for not making much now but with a little luck (AND HARD WORK) will be hired full time sooner or later then benefits great pay etc....it's hard in the begining, but look at all the people that stuck it out, where else can you make what ups employees, make without a college degree, besides it's not that bad, maybe your just a wuss

I have worked at UPS now for 2 months and I work inside the warehouse as well. I load trailers, residential trucks, scan the boxs, unload and sort. We get paid $11.50 an hour. It is a job that requires heavy lifting and patients. There are good and bad days. There are days where I have to run up and down conveyor belts and days when I'm so bord I sleep standing up (not really). I go in at 3:00am and leave at 12pm. Cyber Monday is so far the only day we have to be there at 1am. I recently got hit in the head with a 50lbs box and received a concussion, they have been nothing but understanding and helpful with the long process that take for one to get better with such head injury. The company is paying for the physical therapy and doctors appointment due to being injured. They constantly take the time out to make sure you are being safe, they have lights that are adjustable shining into the truck, they do random quizzes on training scenarios, they even show you better more effective ways to do your job. Management are the nicest people I have ever met. The driver's are the people who bitch and complain about anything and everything they can. Hell they even do prizes for perfect attendance. THIS HAS BY FAR BEEN THE BEST JOB I HAVE EVER HAD!!!!

The new extender belts for unloading at our plants now go all the way to the front of the trailer. No more rollers. Have had them for a few years now. And the newer plants have a lot of auto sort equipment. Yep your local is not doing they're job, that's why some say your union is not a good union.

Coffee Talk (1 month ago)
Believe it or not I love getting comments like this. Reason being that it actually helps prove my point. Only a mindless UPS wage slave would make comments like this because they lack the cognitive ability to either make a plausible argument or provide any constructive criticism. All they can do is hurl insults and or make threats. But then, if they were any smarter, they wouldn't be killing themselves for a sub standard wage and free insurance, (which they are going to need when their bodies begin to give out)...

Teamsters are the most corrupt union in the country, they now protect corporate America only the members get to pay for it. On the other side of the argument, if you could have gotten one of those high paying jobs you would have sold your soul to the teamsters and they would have been the best thing since sliced bread. Meanwhile, the teamster are hacking away at pension across the country. I only get 200 bucks a month and they stole that. Also anyone that represents the union, is told, baffle these clowns with bullshit, after all they don't care about you, they just need a warm body to be able to collect the protection money, they changed that to dues to make it legal.
Marty Marsh (26 days ago)
LMAO, even if you mess up? Just one more reason they are failing.
Nick T. (26 days ago)
It goes both ways. Without the Union UPS takes advantage of workers and can fire you at will. So the Union is a necessary evil, that if you're in good standing will fight for your job back even when you mess up.

You won't get an argument from me about that, but, because of all the corruption they are losing their hold on that.

Not sure how bad it is at UPS, but with fedex the ground trucks at my terminal are loaded by the package handlers. I am a new driver and it is a nightmare for me to find stuff. I haven't heard of any of our package handlers getting write ups because they mis-loaded something. Its a fairly common occurrence, I guess UPS got tired of it and started disciplining people. They are unionized though so I would have thought that would be more rare. Do you not have a steward on the job there or something?
Nick T. (26 days ago)
Wow, it's so different down here in Texas. Most trailers I pull have retainers, the Union helps you out but you have to do your end of the paperwork, same with the stewards. As a delivery driver you can even request shorter days if you think they're overworking you. The employees that know the system use the Contract and Union to their advantage.
Coffee Talk (1 month ago)
There is a steward, if you like hearing pro union rhetoric mixed with excessive cuss words from someone with a thick Chicago accent who does nothing outside of talk...

David: you are not mentally and physically capable to work at a place that only a few with the right genes and vision can actually love coming to work at UPS. You know who you are and if you are in a position of loader or similar position knows that there are benefits and opportunities available in the near future and to have the knowledge that NOT EVERYONE can be hired at UPS. When you have emphysema, cancer, erectile dysfunction, depression, bipolar or get a hospital bill for $200,000, the benefits at UPS works like this: you pay $0.00. Did you like that? That is what you missed, among other things. And for the naggers, there is a way to let you know that a manager or supervisor has THINGS to do on a timely manner and the way to get it done is....being an asshole. Just be a jerk, do not even look at the naggers and YOUR job is already defined: unloader, then look for every truck on your assigned belt line (100 to 300) and unload! For the next 3-5 hours, your job is to go from one to the other. Not talking, no fooling around when you have boxes in the trucks to be unloaded. When 9 pm hits, then relax a bit. THAT IS YOUR JOB. Then you can go back to your landscape, hospital, wife duties. when you get home David, you husband will be very pleased to see you. If you have a VALID question, then look for a manager or supervisor BECAUSE, if you don't, then HE OR SHE will find something for you like DAVID! Are you doing something? uhhh, no. HELP JACKSON LOAD THE TRUCK! It is 8:50...the truck leaves at 9:00 pm ON THE DOT! There you are David, sweating like an iguana loading boxes of 1 lb, 25, 70, 100....like it is a sheet of paper. MOVE IT!! LOAD IT!. FAST!!! NO STOPPING! LOAD, LOAD!!....AND...what was your dumb question? WHAT TIME CAN I CLOCK OUT? That is the answer why supervisors and managers MUST act like the worst or assholes, TO THE POINT so they will not track of all the emails, calls, deadlines and good for nothing elements like you DAVID. i would recommend for you to go to work at Goodwill centers. There, they can ACCEPT that you are slow, take your time, and support your mental state or HANDICAP. Maybe putting sales sheets inside the newspapers. That is a job for you! UPS...no. Only the few and the strong can work for UPS. AND I am not talking men. WOMEN!! One can look at the eyes of a woman working for UPS and you see something different. She can be white, black, yellow, brown. tall, short, heavy but she has her POWER. I see it every day. Remember: you are already a UPS reject. Don't you ever forget it.

Here is the problem, you seem somewhat intelligent and of a mental capacity to work in a job that is considered normal. But you took a job that is meant for people that are either out of prison, on drugs, or borderline destitute. You need to find a line of work that is above that level, otherwise suck it up and admit you are that low.

This guy had limited experience in UPS. I have worked at 3 different facilities and have done pretty much every job you can do as a union employee or management in my 17 plus years of working at Ups. Without the union the pay rate and the benefits would be shit!!! I am currently a full time management employee. And you need to read your union book. I would go into detail but there is no need. Just know that UPS is not for everyone and this guy did not have a good experience. It is hard work and it can be shitty but overall it’s a good place to work. There are people who work as loaders in the building (not drivers) making 30 plus $$ an hour. You have to stick it out for a few years at least to see what it’s really about.
Nick T. (26 days ago)
+Jason Woods, well said. Been doing it almost 39 years and never had to go through what he did. Unloaded, loaded, sorted, delivered and feeders. It's a hard job but well paid and with great benefits. Once you put your time in you pick what you want to do and make a good living.

ups is one of the best jobs you could ever get. 25k to school. a raise every single year no matter what position. GREAT insurance and health benefits. but it is also an insanely hard job. i work from 10;30 to around 4 am on the midnight shift. i leave every day feeling destoyed. but in my opinion its worth it.
john doe (2 months ago)
i work at ups. im a loader on my dock pd3. there cant be regard for the walls. my trailer gets about 900 boxes an hour and im all by myself. yet they expect me to check every label, sort all hazmats, and make the walls 100% secure and tight. the unloaders have the easier job. their there around 3-4 hours while i spend 4 and a half to 5 and a half.
Nick T. (26 days ago)
john doe+ and I bet the receiving end appreciates the tight loads as well as the feeder drivers. When everyone does their job right it makes everyones job easier. We're almost a 24/7 operation now with Saturday delivery and it's a wonder how efficient UPS is moving all those packages. They're doing something right or we'd be out of business.
Qaletaqa Alvarom (2 months ago)
here in Philadelphia  they hire package car and feeder drivers off the street. the current top rate is $35.76 an hour if you have four years seniority. we currently don't pay for benefits and get a pension that pay out  roughly .005 %  for your yearly contribution. which could be as much as $26,000.

I've worked for both UPS & FedEx and I can say this with no favoritism, UPS SUCKS. They create a climate of management vs subordinate employees. They look for ways to make up ridiculous military style rules just to keep an atmosphere of psychological droning over workers. Plus why no dam air conditioner in the trucks unless you live in Arizona. Billion dollar company, pitiful. And if you like spending time with your family on a work day or having the energy/time to get in a workout or even if you like to sleep a standard 8hrs forget it. By the time ur finished sweating out 50-65hr work weeks ur gonna be paying someone to do everything from mowing the lawn to screwing your wife for you!

I've heard that a lot about UPS, that even when you are making the good pay it isn't worth it because you have no life of your own.
Alfred Hernandez (3 months ago)
It's a good job if you stay in it for the long run, if you become a driver, with overtime, you can make some good money. There's no such thing as a 40 hr work week though, those guys work minimum 45-60 hrs, that's one big reason why they can make $100k+ a year, a lot of it is overtime, at 40 hrs a week it's about a $66-$70k a year job, not bad, but if you have a college education and/or some other useful skills, you can make that without breaking your back doing something else. Not a bad gig though for someone with only a HS diploma and no other skills, the wait is long though, during that time you can go to school, learn some other skills, have some options. The benefits are great though, especially for being part time.
Nick T. (26 days ago)
There are positions/jobs that work you less than 45 hrs. I had a run that averaged 42-43 hrs. Like you say though you get used to that overtime pay. You can buy more toys lol.

I can't lie. UPS ask you to do a lot and the check don't seems worth it at times. But with good sups and coworkers it's doable. The benefits are great. But he has good points. The drivers get most of the good stuff far as pay. The sups treat them more with breakfast etc. but with that they are worked hard spending most of their day away from their family. Work load is a mfer lol. Unloading those feeders is tough stuff. And at our facility you don't get to rest In between truck move. You either dump bags jump to another truck or help with irregs. This is my number one complaint when the sups come asking why I have been in a truck past a certain time. But his experience is a lot different from mine. Most days I can just leave and my work day is irrelevant. But some days when every sup is on another level it's frustrating. But all in all the job isn't bad. Just some bad times and misunderstandings from sups who never done the job

In the Dallas area we have a lot of women. Even feeders has a few of them now. Lots of hiring right now and certain hubs have all kinds of rewards for hub emplyees (barbecues, gatorade, fruit, games and raffles etc. In the last few years we've added 2 more hubs and are building another, so it's a good time to get hired if you're young and want the best paying jobs when you get older.

I only actually saw three, two were scanners, (which isn't too hard by comparison) and the other was a pre-loader and she kept up with everyone else.

I am 19 years old and I currently work at UPS, the benefits are worth the amount of labor. They tell you up front "it is a tough dirty job and most people hate it" . The job is worth it as long as you have the work ethic and stick it through

This is 100% true except he did not experienced the supervisor take on this. I worked Twilight, night sort, preload HILEAH, on road all as full time supervisor for a total of 17 years. I do not consider my self a super star but I ran every shift if a building That works 24 hours a day. The only position I did not worked was the Guard house because is not part of the job. I read some messages stating its a great company and pays well. Sure I was a full time on road supervisor in the lakes center HIAFL after 17 years career operations Some of my drivers made $95,000 in one year. A driver made more money than me.What is incredible about all this is all were house P/T employees made no more than $ 16,000 in one year. I know because I paid them. I completed all couerses as an on road supervisor including post,safety training and many other courses requierd to be an on road full time supervisor.P/T is more intense and physical demanding than a driver who only see their boss once a day for an hour if that. A I do not want to put down a drivers job because I did it.I deliver under the rain and 95 degree weather but you are your own boss and no one telling you LETS GO! LETS GO! OR PAY YOU 9 DOLLARS AND HOUR FOR EVERY SEMI TRAILER YOU UNLOAD AN HOUR. Some of you comented "UPS PAYS GOOD(YES) and is a great company with benefits( NO)" Whait untill your body breaks down and they put you throught their work comp doctors hire and pay to do what the company wants. Please write back after they do not need you any more or you find a whom do not like you, The way you talk or the color of your skin. Yep it happend to me and will happen to you because at the end of the day you are just a number....................GM

When my body told me I couldn't do the delivery job anymore I went to feeders lol. I even worked out till I got married and started forming a family at 31 y/o. If you take care of yourself and stay healthy, which most of us feeder drivers don't do, you can retire and live a good long life. No regrets from me, another 5-7 years and I'm out.

I work at UPS. Loading and Unloading trucks I saw as a workout because I couldn't afford a gym membership. And it truly worked for me. Started when I was 19. No I've been a feeder driver for 3 yrs and 21 yrs of employment. Warehouse work is not for everyone.

I can imagine so. By your video you definitely sound like someone who's been pampered and becomes easily distraught. I'm sure you've never found an easier part time job with better benefits, either.

I've loaded and unloaded... unloading is 10 times better than loading, mate
Coffee Talk (3 months ago)
And sometimes longer! True enough that most of the unloading crew are out early.
ScratchGolfer72 (3 months ago)
Lifting boxes up over your head is easier then lowering them, plus loaders get out 30min to 90min after unloaders.
Coffee Talk (3 months ago)
Unloading is more physical work, but there's less to think about, so from that perspective it is better.

I see a lot of UPS and FEDEX violate the law by not stopping at stop signs and speeding. I have even stopped and confronted them about that person for not stopping. The drives need to obay all traffic laws.

Brandon Carraway (3 months ago)
Lol at the damages. I agree with this. Especially during peak. Wow. The sorter at the load belts will walk all over packages unscrupulously.
Nick T. (26 days ago)
And yet as a company they still make a good profit. It's also up to the individual. If you don't care you'll walk all over the packages instead of moving them out of the way. Jams do a lot of damage too.

Turnouts are expected. Your working on a federal level. As for mgmt not getting searched, they have the privilege because well, they are mgmt. Also, there are fewer mgrs than "grunts" which is easier to control. It's the hazard of the job. I get your frustration, however, I feel that your expectations of security are unrealistic. Just my opinion. Haha
Brandon Carraway (3 months ago)
I rather enjoyed working at UPS. I worked at the one in Central Austin, which was a rather large facility. Was it rough? Yes. Was they pay amazing? No. Did I get a free workout? Hell yea! I got real fit working there. And it really teaches you commitment. We started at 12am. Worked to anywhere from 6-9am.
Coffee Talk (3 months ago)
My particular facility, (Palatine) was notorious for being a disaster area. Although I heard from someone who started there just recently and said that the training regiment has been completely re-tooled, (and much better) due to considerable complaints from employees and a very high turnover of new recruits. So at least there's that!

Love it when a UPS wage slave tries to throw in their 0.02 cents and all they can do is make pitiful insults instead of making a point. Little do they realize that all it does is add credibility to the story. But then if the bulb wasn't so dim to begin with, they wouldn't kill themselves at a thankless job for just above minimum wage.

I've been working at UPS for a while here in Canada, honestly just do your job and try to move up in any company you work for. That's how life works...some people want everything to be served on a gold platter. I'm going into the real world soon and I'm excited and nervous at the same time but that's life don't get complacent... we're all human fuck labor fuck management

Certainly is worth it for me. I reaped a lot of benefits from it and hopefully in retirement. I lucked out though, because I had some "avoidables" if you know what I mean and got my job back.
