    Is a UPS PACKAGE HANDLER job really that hard?

    I heard terror stories about dish washing jobs, I tried it myself and it was actually fun. I was wondering the the package handler job is as horrible as people say it is? I also heard you gotta stack boxes 10 feet high lolwut? how am I supposed to do that? do they have ladders or do I have to play basketball with boxes?

    haha i worked both as a dishwasher and ups package handler(back to back actually)

    ups package handler is **** hours, manual labour and **** pay, no advancement chance at all(within the first 5-7 years lmao). it's not that hard, most packages are around 20lbs, and you'll occasionally have to lift boxes weighing 130lbs. the thing that kills it is UNION FEES(got around 70-80 taken away my first pay check), and that it's repetitive and you'll find yourself watching the clock(very very ****ty work environment). everyone smokes weed. i worked errthing there; scanner, handler, packages that didn't pass(i think it's called ODC or some****).
    the ****tiest part of the warehouse is unloading the trailers(not the 5 tons), then it's either scanner or package handler. scanner you do nothing for 4 hours straight but scan boxes, and you have to get each one(if u miss it and it's not cleared the warehouse is fined around 5k). package handler you unload trailers with a buddy. which isn't bad, usually you can unload with the same guy everyday, so it can create a friendship and make it less suckish.
    you'll meet some crooks and crackheads so watch for that lmao

    our warehouse gave pizza every 2-3 weeks.



    tip: do not ever try to go under the belt while it's working. i did and my back touched it, still have scar

    I was a package handler at fedex a few years back during college. I didn't enjoy it that much...

    I was part time with a 3.5 HR shift from 3:30 to 6 or some sh.it like that. Fulltime was 7 hours

    I was on load side so I loaded trailers. Those drop frame ones that are usually hauled as a double on the highway.

    Loud as sh.it

    right before christmas sucked huge co.ck so much shi.t moving through the system.

    I could be more specific if you want

    edit. the highest I had to stack was whatever the height of a full size 53' trailer is. It was like 9 ft. maybe? They gave me some rickety azz stepstool to climb on a hoist up 50# boxes of office paper endlessly

    There's a reason turn over rate is high. most people are teens or college kids or just dudes looking for some extra cash for a while.

    Depends on the type of shift you get at Fed-Ex as a package handler, theres 2 shifts

    preload-which starts at 3am-8:30 am and the outbound shift-which starts at 5:30pm-10:20pm
    different types of jobs as a "package handler" are van loading, splitting, unloading, incompatibles(huge fuking boxes that cant go through the system or duffel bags)

    starting pay is 10.65/hr but you get a 10 cent raise every 2-3 months, i got promoted so i get more then that, its very fast pace physcial labor but its a good job for me cuz im going to college and i get a paycheck every friday

    Aww fuk that noise, I can more than that per hour just working for my parent's company, similar labor but when I work I'm higher up than most of the other workers in the company and it goes at my own personal pace, which I don't mind dragging out a wee bit to stretch out the hours. Yes, slacking slightly to take moar money from my parents. I aint even regretting it.

    Luckily I do not work for them and as of later this week I will not be working at my current job either. A local guy threw a job offer my way selling engines (crate engines and racing engines) dealing with calls and sh.it all day, something like $15 an hour, do want, so I may just go look into that instead

    After a while, you learn that you donít need anyone else in order to survive. No one is ever going to always be there, no matter what they say or what they promise. You just gotta suck it up, accept it, and keep moving on.

    It's horrible at first but once you get used to it, it's not that bad. I was a loader and I'd pick up about 1200-1600 packages a night, peak season was double that (Christmas time). Packages weigh anywhere from 1-70lb that come in your trailer, then they bring around "irregs" which are 70+lb packages (unsafe to send down belt) heaviest one I've gotten was like 200lbs. Yes **** hours but great if you have another job/school. Okay pay, you start around 9/hr with regular raises.

    the ****tiest part of the warehouse is unloading the trailers(not the 5 tons), then it's either scanner or package handler. scanner you do nothing for 4 hours straight but scan boxes, and you have to get each one(if u miss it and it's not cleared the warehouse is fined around 5k). package handler you unload trailers with a buddy. which isn't bad, usually you can unload with the same guy everyday, so it can create a friendship and make it less suckish.
    you'll meet some crooks and crackheads so watch for that lmao

    our warehouse gave pizza every 2-3 weeks.

    Yea. Preload is 3-8am, then Noonday 12-5pm, Twilight 5-10pm, and we have a Midnight sort 11pm-3am. You got us on the scanners though, we just now got scanners that tell you if the package goes or not.

    It is kinda like selling your soul. Not sure how Fed Ex is but with UPS after you get that free health/dental/vision/life/prescription/dismemberment insurance (strong wtf but it's included) it's hard to leave.

    here at fedex you gotta work 1000 hours first before getting benefit package, ups is union if im not mistaken and start out at like 9 something while at fedex handlers start out at 10+/hr
