Great time packaging boxes. Co-workers were the problem

Former Employee - Sales Associate in San Luis Obispo, CA
Former Employee - Sales Associate in San Luis Obispo, CA

I worked at The UPS Store part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Packaging boxes was actually really fun if you enjoy organizing and making something work. Simple job and simple process.

Cons

Prices may drive customers to complain and it happens a lot. Had co-workers that was just too uptight for a small business like this. I have heard the same from other branches as well. We also did USPS and when they don't ask for a delivery confirmation and the mail takes forever to come, they come to us and whine and we can't do any thing about it.

    I have been working at The UPS Store full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is steady, you won't need to worry about checks bouncing.
    Doing the mail can be fun.
    And lots of interaction with people if you are sociable
    You will learn about logistics.
    Its a job.

    Cons

    - You are expected to keep track of 3 or more things at once. You may find yourself retrieving
      packages for a box holder even though you are currently trying to bind copies for another
      customer, while someone else is filling a ship-slip. On some days the stress of mufti-tasking can
      go on for hours.
    - Offloading packages that are to be shipped for customers, weighing 20-60lbs.
    - Expected to charge people obscene prices for putting paper into boxes.
    - Workload does not justify the pay.

    Franchise Nightmare

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at The UPS Store

    Pros

    it I snot as stressful on the body as working for ups corporate. the hours are pretty good and you get a build a personal relationship with lots of the customers

    Cons

    This is a franchise so you work for a individual or owner and not the corporate. the owner has the right to give you hours and take them away at will without so much as a word. there is no system for working other that what the owner sets in place
