Getting a Job at UPS

The United Parcel Service, or UPS, is a great place to work. It could be tough to get a job at UPS, though, but once you're in, you've got it made until you retire, with a great health plan, stock purchasing ... Full Story

If any of you care about keeping what you have then you had better correct the LIES that you and Swift are telling about me on your site or I will without care take everything you have from you all. I am the person who turned in Swift to the USDOT and FMCSA in part for giving CDL's to people who did not deserve one according to Federal and State Law. One of the guys that I personally witnessed getting a CDL was an ex Marine thrown out of the Marines for being a fruit loop who was at the time on Anti- Psychotic Drugs at the Swift school in Millington TN. Another guy was from some African Country (not a US Citizen) and he could not hardly speak or read any English at all and he caused an accident by running another driver off the road on the on ramp to the highway on his practice run for his driving test putting that drivers rig in ditch and shoulder of the ramp. This according to TN. State Law is supposed to be an automatic one-year suspension of his CDL Permit to learn how to drive. Swift driving school employees made sure he passed and got his CDL because he paid CASH for his school and did not get a student loan. Also according to Federal and State Law all holders of a CDL must be able to speak and read English fluently. Both these to guys were assigned to my motel room and assigned to my four-man student-driving group. I wrote a complaint to the company (Swift) about this while I was in my third week of school (class 574 June of 2007) and that is when Swift and its employees chose to deliberately assign me to a truck after I graduated that they new was infested with Wood Ticks without telling me that said truck was infested. This truck and driver that I was assigned to drive with were told about to us all in class one day and come to think about it after I filed said complaint. But they did not say in class that day who the driver was or what the truck number was. The Swift Schools in Millington Tn. and Memphis TN. along with Swifts Terminal and East Coast headquarter Offices in Memphis were RAIDED by Homeland Security, Secret Service, FBI and other various State of TN. Law Enforcement agencies because of information I turned over to them about Swift Transportation Inc. and their ILLEGAL practices and operations. Correct the LIES told by Swift Transportation Inc. on your site immediately or suffer the consequences.

Girl scouts sell cookies and earn merit badges...Every hard working woman and man deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. As an hourly employee you will not get that at ups..If you drive a truck, u won't even get a lunch. Ups management abuses all of it's workers in more ways than any other company in the United States...Dont take my word for it, just go ask a driver or loader how they are treated at work!
I agree with you. The girl scouts have their standards of dignity and respect, not to be found at UPS. That was my point, at UPS you can make good money, but it is a tough job physically AND mentally!

During the next 5 days, UPS will supposedly deliver 240 packages per second world wide, I feel fortunate to be a part of something that has such a impact on the world. Am I brainwashed, not at all. I still see the crazy politics in UPS, just like they are in any other company. What I respect is a blue collar job where someone can come in, with out a big time last name, with out a $80,000. education, simply through hard work, they can make something of themselves. I think there needs to be more companies out there like UPS.
I respect your views on hard work and that's true there is ppl at UPS that make great money but not those package handlers they get paid scraps for those slave like duties they have to preform for about 8.50 per hr just to try and make it past that year to get the benefits fuck that I'm all for hard work and I busted my ass at every manual labor job I ever had but UPS was to far not gonna bash the job some ppl can do it but I just feel some of the work procedures seem a bit ridiculous.

This is advice from UPSers who go to panel cause of violatons. Written by BMWMC

I always try the truth first. Fact that they couldn't cut a deal at his center and is about to enter the place were all contract and legal rights go to dies I just figured he'd need to throw some on the wall and hope enough sticks to mitigate the judgement. Considering the lying two face back stabbing bastards UPS management are I wouldn't leave anything off the table. Dishonesty is a gross misconduct charge that disqualifies you for COBRA, unemployment benefits, and you don't want to put that on an application for a job. When they accuse you of that its full scale war and no prisoners.

After being unemployed for almost a year I got hired by UPS a week ago as a package handling slave (load). Been in classroom training for a week and as the real day of being thrown into a feeder approaches, Im gettin sick to my stomach. I see the employees who work here and they all either look like their dead from exhaustion or ready to kill you, or both.

Some of them look at you and silenting seem to be saying 'Welcome to hell. You're gonna be very sorry ass*ole.' I see young strong men devastated by the heat and exhaustion, slumped over in their feeders at break time. Too tired to even move out to eat.

Im gonna give it my best but I sense doom is looming. Damn I started out so hopeful and positive but reality is beginning to soil my enthusiasm.

What did I do to deserve this God? Oh thats right--you will sweat by your brow promise.

UPS is a very tough place to work! If it was easy they would call the girl scouts! You should have been working out for a few weeks if you were not in shape, didn't anyone tell you that? It takes about 6 weeks to get used to the physical workout. Did you stay or did you already quit?

ups is not a tough place to work...ups is a company that has produced a EXTREMELY ABUSIVE work place which they have managed to protect from public scrutiny. ups will brainwash you into believing you will not make it without their help financially and then they will abuse you till you either knell to their demands or break and get fired...Their is nothing good about ups, at all....It's like having china employee u.s.citizens in our own backyards..Trust me, I had my years and experience with this company. They are no good for our people and this great country!

Hey guys...UPS is NOT a bad company to work for. They do run a tight ship but they also have a union to keep things fair for ALL.
To see the REAL TRUTH about competitor Fedex ...Look at YOUTUBE Videos > "FRED SMITH'S FEDEX PLANTATION" & FRED SMITH'S FEDEX PLANTATION RACISM 2013". I was NOT FIRED and NOT Run Out. I resigned after working undercover with Federal Agents against Fred Smith CEO of FEDEX.

My second day there and they expect me to be able to load 1 regular size truck and the industrial size(garage door) truck. The fuck! Who the fuck they think I am the black clerk kent??! I don't mind lift boxes i can that ish all day . It's the amount/time they wanted it to be done 4hrs(impossible).

UPS is a great paying job. However, there is no quality of life in your life because of the long hours invested daily. Cover drivers are not promise 8 hours daily. Management doesn't communicate to the employees, they have attitudes and you are not treated with respect. Some of them had a slave mentality and the bottom line are numbers and not the employees.

Do you know the hr number? I got hired there but waiting on the status of my background check?
