Hard work, not entirely convenient for starting
Package Handler (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONSeptember 11, 2015
the hours were quite random for night shifts, and the pay for starting was minimum wage, though you were doing the same amount of work as everyone else in the warehouse. Management was accommodating but their were rules in place that made their job harder to do.

its was ok but no home life
Carrier (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, ABAugust 16, 2015
Its a great job for some but the hours can be long and sometimes you don't finish until very late in the day. It can become very stressful at times as they require you to take a lunch but a lot of times it delays your progress. Also if you finish too early they require you to help somebody else which is alright but if the other person is really slow or backed up your eight hour days can easily turn into 12 hour days.

UPS was pretty good. The shift was an early start for me but my Supervisor was a super cool dude. It sucks that I had to quit because I honestly didn't want to. Developed shoulder tendonitis

Great Company… However...
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Concord, ONJuly 2, 2015
Every company has its pros and cons. Ranging from a good management structure, employee advancement opportunities and many others perks and benefits. However, since the last several years with UPS, I have seen a decrease proper training for the management team (operations) and poor employee relations. As a result, the work has environment has become challenging and is not conducive to the employees mental and physical well being. The employees are treated as "less than," like if they were a piece of property that the company purchased. Furthermore, the employee moral is low.
Pros
Innovative Company
Cons
Poor management

I, was promoted to team lead then to shift supervisor after 1 year.

excellent!
Driver Helper/walker (Former Employee) –  Belleville, ONJune 20, 2015
Excellent employer to work for, typical day was fun filled and face paced. Improved my interpersonal skills, co-workers were great people, couldn't ask for better people to work with. the hardest part of the job was remembering customers names. the most enjoyable part was seeing the smiles on my customers faces when I delivered their parcel.

A good place to sweat.
Package handler (Current Employee) –  Montreal QuebecJune 17, 2015
The place is a nice and easy floor layout, as well as it is a good place to sweat if you care about your health.
At first it is hard but after a while it becomes easier.
