A horrible working environment.
Driver (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 January 2018
UPS is a horrible working environment. The training is minimal but you are forced too sign a document saying that you know their procedures perfectly even when no training has been provided. The management is rude, abusive, and offers no guidance or assistance. The absolute worst part of working for them is that they assign a delivery workload that makes the day sixteen hours to complete, but as a commercial driver is only legally allowed to drive for twelve hours, that is all you get paid for! Work sixteen hours a day for twelve hours pay! Not cool at all! Management and the Teamsters union openly mock any attempt to recoup your stolen hours. Avoid this company like the plague!
Cons
Long hours working for less then you are owed while being treated like garbage by management.

Not worth it
Driver (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON22 February 2018
This is a good job for those already at top rate. If you you're applying now this is how it will work. You start at 16/h and in 48 month you go up to 30/h. Great right? Wrong. for the first 2,5 years you'll be making $16 to do the same job as the guys making $30. You only start getting pay raises after 30months of semi-slavery. Let me tell you, the earn every penny of those $30/h. This job has to be done in an insane pace. Drivers don't take a lunch break on winter because they have to make 180-240 stops a day. Just think about making $16/h for 30 months, working on all weathers, no a/c in trucks, heavy lifting all the time, driving in snow with the same amount of stops, the repetitive movements (stop car, unbucke seat belt, bla bla bla) and being on traffic all day risking you life with stupid and irresponsible drivers for $2 above minimum wage. Actually after jan 2019 it will be only $1 more than minimum. Good luck with that. If you are ok with breaking your back, working yourself off, you should find a job as bricklayer help, at least you'll start making 25-30/h.
Just consider if all those working conditions are worth only $1. If you say yes just send your resume and get ready to start.
Pros
Very easy job to get, they are desperate for workers
Cons
10-11hours a day is the regular shift (5 days a week), no winter tires, way too much packages, union is getting into worse agreements every time
