I worked at The UPS Store part-time (More than 5 years)
Owner & co-workers are genuine individuals
Some of the customers we received were very difficult to work with
Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The UPS Store (Westminster, MD) in December 2016.
I applied on line and was interviewed the next day and hired immediately. I was told by the store owner that I would be doing graphic design with some sales associate work after 60 days training. He was excited as he said other The UPS Stores will also want to use my graphic design skills. I started work right after christmas.
The training process was basically throw you in the pool and either sink or swim, with no graphic design work. In other words watch what I do once then you will need to know it. After 2 weeks I was told I was going to need to run the store by myself. Two days later the owner said I was taking too long to learn all the processes and he let me go. I was there for 75 hours.
This is not a minimum wage job with all the information you have to know, like international orders and what items can and can not be shipped. The online training is beyond horrible. I now fully understand why the phrase "Going Postal" came about. The very low pay, the rude customers and the very poor management all made me feel very abused.
This was a horrible job.
