High pay and decent benefits but no balance

After 4 years , really good money for the position , paid benefits and pension ….. the pros stop there … expect too much work for too little time , outside of weekends , they will own you . Most days are 10-13 hours so getting home between 8-10 is the norm … work-life balance ? No such thing .

Not a place to work for long

This place will give steady work for a few weeks, but once you are close to joining the union they will try to make you quit. I started with 30+ hours a week, and they cut me down to 3 a week if I was lucky. They would say that package volume was "low" and to take the day off, but I'd later find out from others that it was busy. This happened to everyone I knew who worked there eventually. Overall, if you need a job fast, I say go for it, you will gain some muscle. Just be prepared to have a side gig

Fun

I really enjoy it. It’s pretty fun and easy job to do. I get to deliver packages and greet costumers. And the management is nice. The hardest part of the job would be the cold weather. Such as snowy days. It can be hard but if your physically and mentally ready you should be fine

Fast paced environment

Complete 3 hrs workout during the shift. No need to go to gym if one wants to lose some weight. Only problem is no safety measure are taken care of. Such as handgloves and wrist cut protection should be provided.

Seasonal

Was great as I could work other jobs and this one. You just deliver packages with a driver. Part time hours and can be only 3hrs a day at times but good while doing it.

Good payment

It is a good job for someone who does not have any other responsibility. Can be stressful because of the manager. Security takes your phone before coming in

If you're strong they will abuse it till you hurt yourself

If you work hard they will put you in positions to hurt yourself, then when you do try to get you to not report it so management can get bonuses for safety

Get employer

Owner is great to work for at Dartmouth location. You become close with the regular customers. Lots of different jobs to do from packing boxes to graphic design.

Fastpace

They do not provide more than 4 hours of work in a day. First two weeks of orientation and training, you would be paid only basic pay not $18 and that too of 2.75 hours only. Otherwise all good. Work include a lot of physical hardwork. Be prepared before joining UPS.

Cons

Short hours

Not a understanding company

I worked at ups as a temp then as a part time employee in 2021 as a mother i was having a really hard time with child care plus being only part time it was hard so decided to leave I gave notice and was told I could come back in the future. After finally getting my life together I decided to re apply for a full time position cause I thought I left on good terms and i actually liked the job there, come to find out they wont even consider re hiring me they have no empathy and will hold anything against you specaily if your not making stats.

Pros

Good pay, good benifits

Cons

No stability, Favors people with good stats.

Them are not clair about thé company politique

Au début, ils avaient promis avancement général en tout. Finalement, j’ai passé un mois sans paie, pas assez d’heures de travail, ils ont promis un bonus après 3 mois, et avant ce temps la compagnie a affiché qu’ils élimineraient ce bénéfice. Avec le temps de récession qu’on vit en ce moment. Ce pas bien vu, un compagnie qui ment au nouveaux employés, juste pour les avoir.

Good people

Great job, well paid after 4 years. Very hard to balance a social life with this job. Somedays you could be working 13 hours, and other days you'll be sent home with no work.

Pros

Weekly pay

Cons

Unpredictable hours

Misleading job postings

Positions advertised were for seasonal warehouse. When I got there, found out the only Position available was for delivering packages using your own car!Evidently since the warehouse jobs are union, seasonals can't work in the warehouse. However you still have $50/ month deducted from your paycheck!Wow! Talk about a bait & switch move by UPS!!!
