    Wonderful Job

    Courier/Customer Agent (Former Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsGreat Benefits, co-workers were amazing. The mix of technology and customer service were the perfect blend to make all of our customers happy.

    ConsThe amount of work you have to do when covering for another is hard to provide what we promise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy only concern was not enough time to be the best customer service company period. Sometimes the amount of staff working at the same time could of been one or two more people to provide that extra edge.

    Challenging and physically demanding job with decent compensation.

    Package Handler Part-time (Former Employee)
    Lewisberry, PA

    ProsThe physical and fast-paced work environment really push you, and the coworkers there are helpful and friendly. Although repetitive, it does not take long to learn how everything works.

    ConsThe hours are minimal even if the hourly compensation is relatively high per hour. repetitive work can become mind-numbing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer more hours, maybe have airconditioning in the facility as it gets unbearably hot during the summer months. Or have scheduled breaks for water.

    Professionalism of Managers

    Operations Manager (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsI believe in the company's overall mission and values.

    ConsManagers must be managers and not full time package handlers. Managers need more training (people skills)
    At the end of the day, you're so tired it is unreal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper managers need to understand the everyday issues of their facilities. Managers need to be managers and not package handlers. Their is no distension between managers and package handlers. We are filthy at the end of the day and work with less than required staffing due to 125% turnover. There is no life after work because you are worn down. The bottom line is not everything. Treat people right ( not like cattle) and the dividend will be greater.
