Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Productive and busy, really enjoyed working for the company and wearing the brand, the problem was management any problems that were brought to their attention they just didn't want to hear it. I'm sure once that management was changed it was probably a great place to work

Common sense aint that common

I joined UPS about 10 Yrs ago. I thought I was on the up when I got in. I discovered that the company is a bit weird. The management make decisions that actually screw things up and your the idiot having to do it. Progression doesn't exist unless your part of the oligarchy. Hard work is not recognised or rewarded. There is lots of people doing as little as possible and getting away with it because of their relationship with their supervisors. The rest then are overloaded trying to cover the easy street brigade. It's not a good place. The money is respectable to be fair but you need a decent wage to compensate ya for all the BS. If your looking for a good job don't come to UPS.

Secure job

Good job security, it can be stressful at sometimes, but it is not that bad, the payment is good. Working hours a bit hard to have work life balance as it is night shift.

Fast paced

I've spent 11 good years with ups but a lot of changes happened recently and I found it very difficult to adapt, due to this I had to leave and find work elsewhere and had no help or support from ups which was very annoying. I also went for other positions in the company and was unsuccessful which also turned me off and discouraged me from continuing to work with them.

Terrible!

Bad management, poor culture, health and safety non existent. Military structure. Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Absolutely soul destroying. Do not recommend to anyone.

A very territorial place

The hours are great if you wished for a day job and weekends off. Warehouse staff and other department staff were supportive and helpful.Staff and management who works there more than a decade who has issues in terms of customer service, click culture, blame culture, micro management. Management have very poor people skills. They humiliate you in front of other staff. Those old timer staff, they would try to intimidate you, as if they act that they own the place, very old school, very unprofessional. There had been bullying issues happening within the place which the management tends to ignore and no action rendered to it.

Pros

Few gifts from other client during Christmas. 9-5.30 job, Mondays to Fridays Fair salary Bank holidays

Cons

Very poor management, lack of people skills, no time for training one on one, No benefits, very difficult to request for leave. Old staff are territorial

Higher management are awful and are running the business into the ground. Decisions are made for jobs that your working without management taking input from those actually working in that sep office role. Lack of information needed to perform to the best of your abilities on a daily basis

Pros

Decent pay/benefits

Cons

Awful management, no progression.

Very high turnover of staff

Drivers are consistently pushed too hard, leading to stress and burnout. If you deliver 100 packages today you will be required to deliver 110 packages tomorrow.

Absolute Hole

If you want to work really hard and be completely under appreciated, this is the job for you. Had the misfortune of working for 1 particularly glorified Neanderthal with a bad attitude. Most here have 0 people skills.

Pros

Free parking on site

Cons

Terrible work environment and zero communication skills within the management

Productive and respectful workplace

I have worked for UPS for just over two years and find them a fantastic company to work for.Basically you have your daily jobs / tasks to complete any additional tasks are clearly explained to you. You are then left to get on with the work and are expected to complete it that day, however should an issue arise and you contact your supervisor they will help you get the job over the line.

Pros

Your boss is your boss and not a dictator.

Cons

Decent wahes

Leuke internationale werkomgeving (in Ierland)

Ik heb ruim 8 jaar met groot plezier gewerkt bij UPS. Het is soms moeilijk, stressful zeker maar zeer leerzaam. Als je kan leven met grote druk voor een niet al te best loon, dan is dit zeker een aanrader al was het alleen maar de collegialiteit & het hoge internationale karakter.

Pros

Zeer leuke collega's globaal

Cons

Erg veel werkdruk

Management

Management do not help at all, Security Officers make accusations and constantly overloaded and worked. If you can't complete all stops, you are threatened with job security. They have unreachable targets, they don't care if you have young family or I'll family members.

Pros

On your own in a van

Cons

Constantly bullied by management
