ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 19 February 2018
Best to leave your personal life out of this work environment. Management is focused on work. Your personal issues may temporarily be a concern and then you have pressure to return things to normal if your situation becomes a long term issue. Work life is often routine and fast paced. Added stress occurs during peak season.
Fair medical and dental benefits
Pays you money for having great grades in school
Coworkers may create an unnecessary stressful work environment and high turn over

Air Sort & Safety Board Member (Former Employee) – Concord, ON – 17 January 2018
UPS is a competitive employer that takes care of their employees. There is a lot of room for growth within this company and many different areas of advancement. UPS is also unionized and offers better benefits and pay to employees than similar positions in other companies.
As a driver it's a well paid stressful job. You leave the building with a truck literally packed to the gills with parcels and some how have to make it back to the building in time to drop off your express packages in order for them to reach the airport in time. All the while having no where to go to the toilet. Say goodbye to your social life!
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.
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
