Sales and Inventory (Former Employee) – 3583 Sheppard Ave.East Scarborough – 30 September 2013
Dynamic and fast-paced working environment and many different tasks throughout the day. Learned many valuable skills to handle packages and assist customers. Co-workers have positive attitude. Hardest part of the job is assisting multiple customers at a time. The most enjoyable part of the job is the variety of work.
A typical day would start at 7am and end at approximately 6pm. Every day was a learning experience. Always something new to learn in the freight and logistics business. Management was not always the easiest to deal with, however, I would only say this of my direct manager and not the company as a whole. Fellow employees made it a good working environment. The hardest part of the job was the long hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was the wealth of knowledge gained on an almost daily basis.
Tgis is a great cimpany to work for. Happy people in a fast paced environment.

UPS is a great company for people that want to be challenged both mentally and physically. It involves a high level of multitasking and time management. It's fun for those who love to strategize and problem solve.
Good pay for hours worked, but bad pay compared to competition
OPERATIONS SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Concord, ON – 26 April 2017
I would say that UPS is a good place to be as an everyday employee; once you get into management though, I would strictly use UPS as a place to gain experience in a management environment, then leave as soon as possible to a better paid, less physically demanding management job.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 25 April 2017
Working at the UPS Store was my first real experience in retail/management, and my first paid employment experience. I was paid handsomely for my work, and I gained extensive knowledge about the shipping industry and graphic design from my co-workers.
Flexible work times
Slow working hours; most customers arrive to receive or send out packages

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.
everyday was an awesome day at work. happy smiling colleges. funniest drivers, i had the best drivers team. they make my day. nothing was hard about this job. i get all my work done within time. best boss ever. every friday was pizza party. i dont have any complains.

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 4 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.
Unloader (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 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.
Unorganized staff, unsafe training/supervising staff, general lack of competence in managerial staff.
Driver Helper (Former Employee) – Ottawa East, ON – 31 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.

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.
