About a seasonal job with UPS

Driver's Helper (Walker) (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I have been working at UPS Canada as a contractor for less than a year

ProsAll the drivers are friendly and hardworking people.Also I am impressed by the diverse culture

ConsApparently female drivers or even female driver's helpers are extinct species.I think there is something to do with the fact most work with UPS is too labor intensive.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is would be helpful to get a manual or some handouts to teach you how to use the board from the get go.It is quite time-wasting to wait for the phone call when there isn't any work for you to do.Would it be nice to get a rough work schedule for you to know when and whom you are going to work with in advance?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Poor people management at a world class company

Mississauga, ON (Canada)

I worked at UPS Canada full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat company, with great opportunities in the US and doing some really great work in the field

ConsPeople practices for professionals ranks was horrible and opportunities for moving up were virtually non-existent. Continuous revolving door of professionals, especially in marketing

Advice to Senior ManagementFigure your stuff out. You cant lead if no one is willing to follow

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Excellent company to start your career.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at UPS Canada

ProsTuition Reimbursement Program
Full Benefits for PT positions
Retirement plan for part-timers
Amazing training for Supervisors before the recession.

ConsLet things go too easily such as not punishing those who pick and choose who will be promoted and who will not. Now adays you are put into a role and expected to learn.

Advice to Senior ManagementRetention is the key to success. Worry about who is stay and who is leaving. Check out the statistics of those you have invested in for tuition, and see if they still work their. (These are the people that came into work regularly had a good attitude and worked hard)

Uninteresting work, average pay, poor management.

Customs Broker (Current Employee)
Fredericton, NB (Canada)

I have been working at UPS Canada full-time for more than 5 years

Pros- Decent medical/dental benefits
- No shift-work
- Decent pay

Cons- Management is out of touch with the workforce, conflicting goals
- Policies on dress code, attendance, expected goals, etc are outdated and extremely rigid
- Poor training
- Production-line style work, very monotonous and uninteresting.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo get the best production out of your employees, treat them like human beings and give them some respect.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
