Seasonal employment was a gamble
Driver Helper (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 January 2018
Worked as a driver helper. Long days, minimum wage. Unclear chain of command between all workers and dispatch.Fine for a temporary gig, but seeing as the drivers felt so much pressure to complete impossible seasonal positions, most workers are contract and thus inexperienced, and I still haven't received my bonus pay 3 weeks after my last day: I wouldn't return to this company. Not to mention that dispatch only wanted me to work four hours a day. Laughable.
Pros
Opportunity to experience a logistical nightmare
Cons
Orientation was more painful than surgery

Terrible place to work
Courier (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB17 January 2018
Dont work here, chances are this posting is misleading. They will hire you and let you go without any warning before your 90 day probation because all they care about is cutting costs. They dont give proper training and expect you to do the job efficiently, management is terrible.
Pros
Good Co-Workers
Cons
Bad Management, Terrible work-life balance

Air Sort & Safety Board Member (Former Employee) –  Concord, ON17 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.

Fast Paced customer service & high reliability
Assistant Helper (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON7 January 2018
My experience working with UPS Canada was really amazing and fulfilling one. A typical day at UPS would begin in the morning around ten with sorting of the shipments for the same neighborhood and in the sector. It was fun and amazing work when we delivered at the sorted addresses all together in a fast paced environment.

Worst management you will ever encounter unless you are sucker!
Markham - Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON20 December 2017
Management is the worst you will every encounter. They only see what they want to see and promote who they want to promote. Unethical practices by management is very normal. Personnel get promoted without job postings, or without requirements met for the position. Great place for suckers!

Hardest part working at this place is at -30 C conditions for the same exact pay as the person walking around and counting inventory. That really sucks.

Most of colleagues are nice but very few are hypocrites, particularly one lead hand. These hypocrites are very friendly but they stab you at the back by gossiping to everyone including management. Very hard to identify these culprits.

Pick, pack and ship is normal process at work except few areas that needs heavy lifting of packages

The most important thing I learned here is how valuable the product is for the patient and the need to ship out by the end of the day. Due to some of the hard working individuals, UPS SCS is still holding the client. Because of these individuals you feel happy you are not alone.

Finally not recommended to work at this location due to two supervisors and one lead hand. Manager changed 6 months back and nothing much changed.
Pros
Nice environment, great client, some good coworkers. Favoritism pays a lot.
Cons
Worst management you will ever encounter, pay sucks, hardworking not recognized, punishment program in place if you don't obey management.

Delivery driver (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC17 December 2017
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!
Pros
Well paid with benifits
Cons
Stressful and long hours

Tough Job
Package Handler (Current Employee) –  2900 Steeles Ave W6 December 2017
Not worth travelling to. They only give you part-time technically, but you can work double shifts of approx. 5hrs each. Because of the double shift, you are not entitled to OT.

Pay starts at minimum and you hit max pay after 4.5 years. Good thing is that the hours are flexible and if you put in work, you can do multiple shifts; they need all the help they can get.

Very high turnover rate, unhappy workers, management could be better.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
poor work conditions, job culture, morale

Status Caller (Current Employee) –  Fredericton, NB5 December 2017
I have never worked for a company that treated their employees so badly. They come first. Management is very inconsiderate. Don't plan on working here and having a work-life balance, especially during Christmas time.

Very fast paced environment
FULL TIME PRELOAD SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB4 December 2017
As a preloader you come into work and start working, packages come down the belt and you need to load the packages on to your cars in a set order for the drivers day. It is very fast paced and if you don't learn the methods it is very difficult. If you do learn the job it is incredibly easy and rewarding. It is physical as well and will make you feel you are at the gym everyday.
Pros
High wage for industry
Cons
night shift

Office Administrator (PT)] United Postal Services (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON28 November 2017
a very good company to work for but very hard to get a full time employment. Safety is a top priority and that's great for UPS employees. The company allows employees to buy shares and that's great for investments. Also, UPS provides a competitive benefit package for its employees and their family.
