Highly productive environment. Very fast-paced
package handler (Current Employee) –  Concord, ON14 April 2017
UPS Canada is a very interesting and intriguing place to work. At work, it's mostly loading trailers and it's very fast-paced. I've adapted really well and can work in an extremely fast-paced environment. The people at UPS are very welcoming and the supervisors are extremely kind. The hardest part of the job is when heavy flow comes and there are hotshots when trailers are bombarded with boxes. The most enjoyable part of the job are the people and how fun and entertaining the environment is.
Pros
Recognition - Free pizza every week
Cons
Late nights - finish around 12-2 a.m.

Customer Service (Former Employee) –  London, ON12 April 2017
I had my student placement at UPS and learned so many new skills. I had to deal with customers, copying machines and cash. The owner was pivotal in my learning.

Disorganized

Overall ambiance is good and the management is cooperative but the company is pretty huge and disorganized when it comes to communication and implementing the system.

Not very organized
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON4 April 2017
Disgusting expectations for low amount of pay, it requires too much damage to to body for the reward. Unless you're a drive or Office worker, you will be benefited. Anyone in the Warehouse with surely regret the job.

One of the worst run facilities.
Unloader (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 April 2017
Management is absolutely clueless.
They treat their employees like literal slaves.
You are expected to break your back for minimal pay, while supervisors talk down to you like you're some sort of cattle.
Safety standards are also abysmal...

If you can hold out and find somewhere more promising to work, or to become a driver with them, by-pass UPS altogether.
Especially if you're outspoken and challenge their "intelligence". They don't like that.
Pros
Benefita. Apparently..
Cons
Unorganized staff, unsafe training/supervising staff, general lack of competence in managerial staff.

Easy job if you learn quickly
Driver Helper (Former Employee) –  Ottawa East, ON31 March 2017
The job was fairly simple, to scan and deliver packages to residential and commercial customers. Once you get used to the system of delivery, the job is a breeze. Main problem was inconsistent work hours (some weeks you get 30+ hours, others you get < 20), but there is not much that can be done as you work on an on-demand basis.

Pays great
Package handler (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON28 March 2017
UPS pays well but hours can be long. Supervisors can be annoying sometimes. You well need to work from Monday to Friday, for at-least 3-4 hours. you'll average around 20 hrs per week and get payed every Friday.

treat employees with no respect
Package handler (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON21 March 2017
no respect for employee and management doesn't involve in day to day activity with the worker and all they need is a word from your close supervise which is not qualified to begin with.

Terrible Management and Schedule awareness
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Lake Country, BC12 March 2017
Just terrible management some days they would post a start time some days they would not. They would text at a ridiculous hours of the night to advise us of start time which could change at any time. No communication between management or staff at all. Union staff that work they employ are opinionated and have been known to belittle staff.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything stated above
