Lots to do, lots to learn- overall a good experience in retail
Store Sales Associate / Jr. IT Technician (Current Employee) – Wellington, FL – 4 November 2017
It's never boring to work- the hours are manageable and go by fast. I learned a lot about shipping and packaging. Management could be more mature. It's a pretty easy job once you learn everything that needs to be done, but it's a whirlwind up to that.
Package Service Operator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 November 2017
a very busy and fast pace environment, time management a priority...Energetic and always on the move. Never a dull moment.. Working under unfavorable weather condition and circumstance. New challenges every single day...
Supply Chain Analyst (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 21 October 2017
arrogant management. the management believe in one way communication. there is no space for two way communication. the lowest level staff is treated like machines. would not recommend anybody to work for this company.
My role at UPS SCS was 7 x 24 x 365. It was a demanding yet very rewarding company to work for. I enjoyed grooming our future leaders. The training I received over my career was excellent and I continue to use the many practices I learned through this training today.
Walker/Helper (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 17 October 2017
I was a hired as a seasonal walker for the christmas season. Loved being outside and busy. But the union dues for a seasonal worker are ridiculous. First you should not even come close to paying the dues of a part time worker or if any. You pay exactly what a part time worker would pay even though your hours will vary week to week (4-28hrs). When they take off union dues sometimes you are left with nothing!! Remember your paid minimum wage!! Also the criminal record check is a joke. They make you pay for it but don't give you any proof that it was ever done.
Drivers are great. Appreciate how hard they work.
Not worth the money. Union takes the highest percentage.
Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 October 2017
UPS had a great environment, they paid very well and they had many time slots available for employees to work. Overall a good place to work, but the management needs to learn how to communicate with the employees.
Front-Line Supervisor (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 12 October 2017
This isn't a very desirable job. Especially at management level. starting wages are terrible and the work culture is negative. Saying that, this is one of the few part time jobs that provide a decent benefits package after 90 working days. once you reach top rate you can make ok money. They take on more than they can handle as a company.
Hub worker (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 12 October 2017
Good company to work for, was flexible with hours and lots of overtime and promotional opportunities which allowed to advance quickly, Pay was not adequate to the work done and ended up leaving for more money.
Air & package car driver (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 October 2017
I worked as an international air-driver so I got a transport Canada Clearance Pass. Learned the rules for customs documentation,; became a package-car-driver and found it too heavy of a work load being a new-mother and full time heavy job. I loved the job, just couldn't do EVERYTHING I wanted to do at the time.
Free uniforms/ with laundry
X-mas brutally long hours, not enough family time then.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Stony Plain, AB – 1 October 2017
On a Typical day i completed job duties like: Printing, Shipping, Packaging, Graphic Design, Wide Format Printing, Faxing, Managing Inventory, Customer Service, Processing Transactions etc. Most Enjoyable part for me is Customer Service.
Free Lunch some days.
To far from my residence where i live now and less benefits included in job package
Key Entry Administrative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 September 2017
I worked here part time for a year. It was great and I like my coworker there. But this job was not for me.
This is a good company if you looking for job security, stable income and benefits. If you come to work regularly and on time you shouldn't have any trouble with management. You can advance to different position if you take notice of the job posting once in a while. In the meantime, learn what you can especially reading books on how to work with other. Most of the job duties are trainable ... people skill that is something anyone should learn on their own to understand who they are and how they can work well with other.
job security, stable income and benefits.
part time and not flexible in term *cough* creativity
UPS is a good company to work for because it provides good company benefits but its being run by clowns who are not qualified to be leaders.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 19 September 2017
Usually its being run by a bunch of clowns who only got their position by sucking up to their bosses and ratting others out ....typical way to get to the top but not qualified to be a leader. The management team turn on each other when the going gets rough. Its a dog eat dog kind of workplace. Only the bullies survive.
