Busy season (otherwise known as Any Holiday) is extremely busy.

Advice to Management

Make sure that potential employees not only have excellent customer service skills but excellent handwriting, typing skills and mathematical comprehension.

Other Employee Reviews for The UPS Store

  1. "Great time packaging boxes. Co-workers were the problem"

    I worked at The UPS Store part-time (Less than a 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 a 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.
