    Current Employee - UPS Part Time Package Handler in Tempe, AZ (US)

    I have been working at UPS part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Starting pay is $10 an hour, I've only worked for this company 14 months and I already make $12.50.
    Hours are perfect for anyone going to school or who has a second job.
    Lower management (i.e. supervisors) is always friendly and willing to help out.
    Safe work environment
    Keeps you in shape.

    Cons

    Very physically challenging job.
    Higher management loves to put everything off til the last minute.
    Can take quite some time to move up in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making "safety" rules that slow down the process then getting angry at the workers for following them. Either I work safely or I load 500 packages per hour, but I can't do both.

    I worked at UPS part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits after one year. Good pay to start and regular increases. I loved it here. Do your job and management leaves you alone. There are opportunities to gain more hours by working as a driver helper.

    Cons

    If you want to drive full time it takes a long time. Working environment is warm in the summer and cold in the winter, but it is a warehouse setting.

    I have been working at UPS part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The hours are great for if you are a student.

    Cons

    No bus goes to the facility so if you don't have a car then you can't get to work unless you bum rides which isn't always successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well I haven't started as a package handler yet but when I was a driver helper I rarely saw management.
