UPS or success is not for the weak. Ups is great company. I started at ups a loader at the age of 17 part time. By the age of 21 I was a full time driver making 70 thousand a year. I've been there 18 years and now I make 100 thousand a year. What job pays this kind of money without an college degree?

First of all, Teamsters do NOT recognize production targets such as 1,100 packages per hour (PPH), PERIOD!! Article 37 states "a fair days work for a fair days pay" meaning you come in to work and give what you've got. Same applies to the labels up percentage, it's not contractual so those numbers are nothing more than management trying to hit unmakeable targets given to them from higher ups. Your first 30 days are probationary and you can get released for any reason and cannot grieve through the grievance process. That's why I tell new hires in the orientation that being on time is more important than how hard you work those first 30 days. (I'm a Steward.) You strike me as someone with the stones to push back on management once a member and through probation, that's not a quality that UPS wants to see, they like sheeple. Great commentary and I sure hope you apologized to Bear, dogs are the most loyal and loving things in our lives!

I unloaded for my first year there and sorted for another 5 years before I finally quit. Anyone who says it's easy or you're being a pussy are just trying to over compensate for their tiny penis by trying to prove how tough and mocho they are. That shit is back breaking work, I don't give a fuck how big and tough you think you are.

I know you posted this four years ago. About one year ago I started working at UPS as a part time HR supervisor. It devastates me when my preload + local sort supervisors ax someone I hired in the first week. It is so much work to hire someone. You would not believe all the databases + systems I have to log in to to get someone hired. A lot of those I hire tell me I am the nicest person at UPS they've interacted with. I get all metaphysical during orientations + review Don Miguel Ruiz's Four Agreements with my loaders/unloaders. I'm so sorry you had a bad experience. I tell my package handlers, if you ever feel like you can't talk to someone here, you can always call me, and I give them my personal cell phone number. I wish you had come to work in my facilities.

Jake you are definitely not a pussy. I worked for u.p.s. back in the 80s while going to school. I think they did you a favor by letting you go. I saw people go on their 10 minute break, on their first day and keep going to their car. I lasted 3 months and quit. That was a small center. 80% turnover rate. Oh and I haven't shipped anything through u.p.s. since. If the customer's could see how they handle packages, they wouldn't either.

HOLY FVCK And here I thought that it’s only at my facility that shïts ALWAYS like this. Hell, I’ve been working there for 2+ years and they really don’t give a rats ass if you toss stuff, only the manager does. That and the work load is ungodly inhuman. I’ve seen someone break their leg lifting something. To every newcomer, I always say “Welcome to hell”
LONER MoNsTeR (25 days ago)
Unfortunately no, he just took as long as possible off with pay

Hey i just came across your video, i picked up UPS as a second job for about a month pretty recently. God what a mistake that was, ive had some really shitty jobs in the past but none compare to this dumpster fire of a company, without a doubt the absolute worst company i have ever been apart of. No benifits or pay increases for a year (and the pay increase is maybe 25 cents), absolute horseshit expectations on how much work can get done in a 5 hour shift, and like you said in your video they basically just treat you like a body that has no value whatsoever. DO NOT WORK FOR THESE PEOPLE
Jeff Vanter (1 month ago)
The longer you work for UPS, the more you realize that your back and your body are more important than their false sense of superiority.
Jeff Vanter (1 month ago)
Ive worked as a preloader for nearly 3 years and this can be very true. Since you worked for such a short period of time you never got to experience any union protection like I have. The union ensures that everyone gets to work safely and they will flat out tell the company to go fuck them and their numbers.

Wow. keepin ' the labels up! thats some Nasa shit right there ! Howd u do it ?
gogogabe9000 (1 month ago)
If you are part of the union you can practically never be fired. Got a warning letter canceled by putting WP under my signature which stands for “with protest” Even if you are not part of the union, you need to physically hand in your badge (which essentially is saying you quit) or receive a warning letter and then and only then after all that will you be fired. Another thing is who told you that you were fired? Your part time supervisor or your full time supervisor? Because if it was the part timer who told you that he has literally 0 jurisdiction over you getting fired or not. This video really is not needed they tell you the job sucks ass up front. You should not be surprised.

Everything he said is spot on.They don’t even really train u.heres what caught my attention tho.If they see u struggling they could easily move u to another station.instead they’ll fire u.Thats why they have tours every week with like 13 people.And they quit or get fired within that week

I know the job probably sucked but try staying at a job for awhile. I’ve been in a meat department for 1.5 years now. I started as a wrapper and now I’m lead boneless cutter( behind manager) gone from 10.25$ an hour to 18.00$ in 1.5 years

Mark Overfelt (1 month ago)
Lol I was gonna say something mean but your video cracked me the fuck up! I started at UPS 29 years ago this month and I almost walked out on my 2nd day cause unloading an entire 53ft trailer sucked dirty balls but for some reason I kept going back. IRS actually a great job if you get to where I'm at which is Feeders.i finally learned to let their bullshit go in one ear and out the other and laugh at them as I'm cashing my $2,000 a week paycheck and that's bring home after tax and 401k and their insurance is killer and they pay for it. My biggest complaint is the few asshole supervisors I've had over the years almost stomped a mudhole in ones ass 10 years ago but for every one prick there's 3 decent ones. I made $137,000 last year driving an air conditioned truck and get to sleep in my own bed every night unlike most other truckers

Remember this my friend, The fat kid wins the race at UPS. I have been there 7 years. There is no need to bust ass for a union and company who treat you like dirt. The more work you put the more they pile on you. The only language they speak is money. Safety as it is thrown around is an empty label. Supervisors have no real power unless you give them any. Part time sups are the scapegoats with no real authority. Anyways i liked your video. Keep your chin up. 👍
Alejandro P (1 month ago)
UPS stands for Under Paid Slaves. I took a job there after retiring from the military. My first Christmas season as a delivery driver was enough to me to quit. They were piling so many packages on my route that I was out there until 10:00 PM every night and still expected to be in at 7 the next morning. I told the manager sorry but I got a life. Even now when I am ordering things for the office I have to tell the vendors please don't ship this order VIA UPS because we need these supplies in the morning. Even with next day delivery UPS won't be here until 8:PM , by then we've all gone home and the security guard will end up signing for the package. They have gotten terrible.

I work at UPS as a local sort Supervisor and started in unload. Its not a fun job, hot as fuck, dirty, and exhausting when you work for a smaller hub with crappy equipment. That said, you said you showed up late and by this video, it sounds like you had a bad attitude. Accountability and attitude are the greatest factors in how successful you will be at UPS. If you are genuinely a hard worker, show up everyday on time and just get your part of the job done, then you will move up quickly. UPS pays the best in the industry and has by far the best benefits, anyone watching this, if you are willing to work hard UPS is a fantastic place to make a career.

Yep! You bust your ass for shit pay and they don't give you breaks until after you are done which is 5 to 6 hours without a break. I was a can loader at the airport.

Loading sucks I've been at UPS 4 years I've been a loader an unloader on the main unload and metros the main is a little hard on your body but the package cars is easy shit right now I'm a sorter and that is pretty easy also small sort is easy the air wing where you just load air cans all day that's really easy cake work
Hannah Kapitanich (1 month ago)
I can’t help but laugh, my boyfriend had the exact same experience! In the beginning he was ‘named’ the fastest loader in that group and got a fucking UPS flashlight! Suddenly weeks later two out of three leads were embarrassing the hell out of him each shift about how slow he was and how shitty his walls were. Then they decided to change the time his shifts started... without telling him. Halfway through his shift, his boss was on his ass about the ‘new’ way they do their walls now, when no one had mentioned a thing! He started having severe wrist pain and his boss told him to get over it and sent him to do trailers by himself. 6 months later his wrist is still ruined. Also refused to give him full time until he had worked there for 2+ years??He then switched to a gas station job where he makes the same amount for a 1/4 of the work. Not to mention some shifts were 2 hours, some were 6. Some paychecks were $120, some were $275.

I'm glad I watched your video. I'm a 45 year old fatso office worker and thought this job would be good exercise. Seeing how buff you are and having a hard time, I think this job would kill me. Sounds like your manager is a jerk, and they just say the same line over and over. You deserve a higher paying job anyway. They did you a favor. Fuck them
Cat (1 month ago)
My grandson worked at UPS last Christmas. He was a loader & only received 1 hr of training. So you were real lucky to have your week of training. After 6 weeks he was told that he wasn't fast enough too(and the Christmas/ new years day rush was over). So obviously you're not the only one who wasn't fast enough. But from you're video, it sounds like your attitude was probably your real problem. Lol

I didn't watch the video because I really dont care. I just want to say this: READ YOUR UNION HANDBOOKS, PEOPLE! I've been there 8 years and no one tells me anything about speed or PPH because it's nowhere in OUR handbook. Work safe, not fast. Work smart, not hard. You only have one back and it shouldn't be lost overexerting yourself because your supervisors want to go home early. Go to your union meetings, read your handbooks, frequent upsers.com. We are union for a reason! Don't let them run you over!!!

Dude that kind of work isn’t for everyone. They did you and themselves a favor by firing you. They could care less about you breaking your back for ten bucks an hour and if you didn’t like the job there’s no reason for you to break your back for ten bucks an hour. Don’t stress it, Move on to a better job and please feed your cat. His name isn’t UPS so dont be mad at him.
