    I drive the browntruck

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

    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

    Good Company, Great Benefits

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMost employees within the Hub, with the exception of Upper Management, are there mostly for the benefits and a paycheck. Everyone is there to get through the day, much like any other warehouse job. Within the Office is about what you'd expect, crazy customers, INSANE at Christmas time.

    ConsChristmas, irate customers, unreasonable goals at times.

    My First Job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe benifits we're good, the sick time was good, the pay was ok.. Really good physical work.. Nice group of people that you meet

    ConsFor part timers you could never get the hours. The always followed by seniority. Long waits for truck delays. The 150 a week checks..

    Advice to Senior ManagementCome down from the mountain and see how the real work is done.
