I think I just worked my last night at UPS as a pre-load sorter. ....after only 3 weeks. I’m 52, and I don’t know what I was thinking. I’m strong, focused, and fairly fast on my feet, but when that conveyor starts spitting packages at you...some of them well over 50 lbs...you’ll find out what you’re made of. And the pay?!...pssh. What the heck!! Ridiculous. Jake, you didn’t even mention irregs...talk about miserable. I could go the rest of my life without having some mindless ape throwing tires and steel pipes down a chute at me without any regard to my safety. Done. This rant just sealed it for me. Lol.

Dude, you're just too tense. UPS is not for you. Find another job such as ripping tickets at a movie theater before you maul your cat. BTW I worked at UPS for 5 years to help pay for school.

+Pea Stone it's only my first week not sure if union can help yet. I think it's 30 days after employment 2 be covered by the union. I'll find out. Thank u

Is it normal 4 new part time employees 2 be asked 2 stay home? If so will it end after seniority is earned?
Andrew Hartman (10 days ago)
It's all about getting that driver position. I don't personally work there, but my father has been working there for 27 years and has been a driver for 20. Making $94K after taxes and it's not too terrible in terms of physical work. For some people it can take 5-10 years to become a driver, others it can take 3 weeks.

Jonney Rapozo (12 days ago)
It always cracks me up about how current ups employees always try to stand up for it in the comments lmao hey there a good company I've worked there 20 years they payed for all four of my back surgeries ROTFL maybe you wouldn't need back surgery if you weren't being overworked. slaves with medical benefits more like.
Jonney Rapozo (11 days ago)
I worked there for the grand total of a day i got hired this year they promised me the whole world in the interview full benefits 14 an hour after my first year so i took the job i gave my two week notice at my current job came in for my first shift for the first 3 hours i dealt with all the bullshit it tripped me out because they wanted all the heavy shit at the very top and the lighter stuff at the bottom lol anyway so finally this 145 pound mini fridge came off the line i called my supervisor over because there was no fucking way i was gonna break my back for them the supervisor told me i had to lift it by myself because there was no team lift sticker on it i told him to go fuck himself and walked right out my job was cool enough to take me back they actually promoted me but if my job hadn't been cool enough to do that i would have been fucked your a real one for making videos like this @Jake G people need to know 👌
Jake G (12 days ago)
Jonney Rapozo Right logic is piss poor at best. Yes lets bow down because I injured myself to the point I needed surgery workin for 10 bucks an hour. But hey they paid for it. News flash once you screw up your back thats it. Idc how much surgery you have. Only time the insurance is useful is if you use it for something that already happened to you. Then fine I respect the decision. Gladly use them to pay for your expensive surgeries. But for everyone else it makes literally no sense. Its like workin at a place you know will give you cancer with the idea you are going to sue them down the road. Like what???

This video needs a disclaimer because eating food and watching had me laughing and almost choking on my slice of pizza. I like UPS because it keeps me awake from 3am-9am. So what if its back breaking work. Anyone should know that this isn't folding clothes at Gap kids. After a year you get free health, dental and vision. STAY POSITIVE!

This video could’ve not been explained any better. UPS REALLY doesn’t give a fuck about it’s employees and REALLY does look at its employees as numbers. The working conditions are horrible and the volume of packages a day are ridiculous. DO NOT WORK FOR UPS

I barely have muscle and skinnier than you dawg, I'm in pain a lot but I ain't bitching lol its a job, been there over a year now and I love it. It may be only $10 an hour but the possibilities are endless in moving up with the company. Can make serious bank without having a college degree, not too many places you can do that nowadays.

Only job without a degree where you can make 110 k a year
Almerinda Romeira (1 month ago)
On my first in UPS Deutschland as an unloader I felt the intensity of it, though it's the fast pace that kills you. My supervisor manages the hub so actually when he comes is when I slow down so that he can ask me if I'm still alive. There are most likely worse jobs than this one scattered around the western world

Expert Critic (2 months ago)
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?
John Williams (2 months ago)
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!
Corey M (2 months ago)
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.
Brian (1 month ago)
part-time sup and "your" facilities you say....ha! I'm ashamed to work at UPS and so should you and everyone else. The lowest of the low point in anyones life. At least you aren't working in operations.

Angela Wright (1 month ago)
Me feel better also after hearing your video. Thank You..❤ ... I'm a 61 year old active female.. Went back to work after 5 years of freedom. I JusT wanted the exercise and to feel productive in society again. Money is shit I don't know how people survive on it. Unfortunately I had to walk the fxxk out of Fedupx last FriDaY... I gave my all and was treated like shit... I loved my job in preload.. But I draw the line at being treated disrespectful and working under unsafe conditions. Managers talk safety but don't or won't give a shit. All and all it was an interesting experience I was there 11 months.

James Robinson (2 months ago)
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 (2 months 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 (3 months 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 (3 months 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.

Ups, FedEx, usps are all the same btw. Ups at least has union.

Wow. keepin ' the labels up! thats some Nasa shit right there ! Howd u do it ?
gogogabe9000 (3 months 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.

Chris Shanklin (3 months ago)
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
Chris Shanklin (3 months ago)
He’s not lying.The hours are a joke.
