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

Ideal for single people with no children
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON19 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
Pros
Pays you money for having great grades in school
Cons
Coworkers may create an unnecessary stressful work environment and high turn over

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON12 February 2018
A typical day at work was filled with hard work mixed with fun and laughter. There was times of stress like any other work place, but the support of your team would get you through the day.
Great place to learn and move on.

Hub Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lachine, QC12 February 2018
work culture is poor. Great benefits.

I learned to deal with a wide variety of internal customers, from unionized employee to various VPs. I really enjoyed my time there.

The job could at time be very physical. If you enjoy hard word work, challanges then UPS is for you,

Tremendous Organization
Manager (Former Employee) –  Multiple7 February 2018
UPS is by far the best employer I have ever or will work for. Their culture of promote from within coupled with the energy they put behind training their staff is second to no company I have worked with in 30+ years. The culture is and continues to follow a good days pay for a good days work. As is common in the transportation industry, hours are long and ones ability to adapt dictates your success level within the organization
