Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Peterborough, ON3 April 2018
Each day is a new adventure, with its own challenges.
I've learned that everyone is replaceable, regardless of your position.
In 9 years, I've had 3 different managers. Being a supervisor, I've also had the privaledge of interacting with management from other departments. They are all task oriented.
The workplace culture is diverse, and multicultural, at some depots more than others.
The hardest part of the job is maintaing the numbers, making my shift look good in the reports based on performance of their tasks.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with the other employees during training, or going out on road to learn the various delivery areas.
Pros
good benefits package for pt employees
Cons
long hours

Great working environment. Very friendly staff. Positive attitudes. There is always something to do when arriving at the workplace. Work will be non stop but there will be breaks when timing is available.

Trailer Associate (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 March 2018
Manageable hours with weekly pay. It's a nice side job if you're looking for a little extra cash.
Promotions are in-house making it easier for those who have been in the company to climb the higher up the ranks.
Teamwork is essential, everybody has their own part to play.

Fair Job
Package Handler (Current Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS18 March 2018
The job does have a wage progression schedule and a union, as well as benefits. It is only part-time so it's best to have another job or being enrolled in some kind of post-secondary.
Pros
Wage progression and union
Cons

The worst possible job.
Early morning un loader (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB14 March 2018
Terrible management and even worse supervisors. Potentially one of the worst places you could work. The supervisors are lazy and don’t actually help unload the trucks like they are supposed to, they make an excuse to stay inside rather then get in the trailer to help. All the company cares about is saving themselves . They also treat packages like garbage , wouldn’t be surprised if people received damaged orders due to the negligence of the ups supervisors throwing stuff around carelessly.
Pros
None
Cons
hours not guaranteedminimum wage pay, rude management

Too many bosses
Package Handler (Current Employee) –  Lachine, QC26 February 2018
The supervisor think they own the job.
And don't really care about the pre loaders as long as you get the job done.
Poor ware house conditions working in the winter with very little warmth in the warehouse.
As far as the pay its worthless for pre-loaders your starting at 11 dollars and 25 cents and after 3 months it's goes up by a few cents.
If your working in pre-loading it will take you four years to get to top salary while working with guys that are doing the same job.
It's so stupid.

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
