    I drive the browntruck

    Full Time Package Car Driver (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsThe pay and benefits are great when you eventually can get a full-time position. If you enjoy working on your own and can handle pressure, this is a plus. I enjoy meeting the people I deliver to also. I have heard a lot of co-workers who came out of the military compare UPS to that type of a career. It is possible to get an easier job by driving tractors or going into management later on. We get a lot of vacations, over-time, have a pension plan, 401K, company stock discounts, and we get corporate discounts from other companies.

    ConsDriving a package car, which is company lingo for the brown delivery truck, is a very physical job that is tough on your body. So you need to be in good shape from a health stand point. The hours are long too, if you have small children you will miss all their activities Monday-Friday. I have an 8:50AM Start Time, I typically clock out at 7:30PM. I live 27 miles away from my work location, this means I leave my driveway about 7:30 in the morning and I get home after 8PM on an average day. The company constantly comes up with new technology to try to increase the amount of work we do, they also know through GPS and other technology what we do all day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company needs to hire more employees and decrease the workload a little bit. They also need to improve servicing our customers better.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Temp Driver-Helper Holiday Season

    Holiday Driver-Helper (Former Employee) Sarasota, FL (US)

    ProsFast paced work with the benefits of daily exercise. Walking fast with packages, up and down driveways, up and down up to 16 flights of stairs on some large homes. A lot of fun. Get to meet nice appreciative customers!

    ConsYou have to wash and wear daily, the one uniform that they supply you. You have to wait by your phone each morning for a call from your driver who will give you a time and place to meet him or her.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTraining is straight forward and common sense.

    UPS Is good for the money!

    Unloader (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you are into politics, you will go far; Drivers can make upwards of 90k a year after three years; Full time supervisors and managers (above supervisors) make about 75k-150+k, respectively.

    ConsNo upward progression if you don't play the game of politics; most management will not help you advance; the bottom line is the only thing that matters; most supervisor's have absolutely no leadership ability.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt must be working, the stock is up and no one is going hungry but the part timers...and they are a dime a dozen so...I guess if it aint broke, don't fix it!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
