UPS (United Parcel Service)

Loader

July - August 2022 • Columbus, OH

What I liked

Relaxed work environment, and a somewhat enjoyable job for those who like physical activity. Shifts went by quickly because you could listen to music and for the most part were left alone to your trailers for the majority of your shift.

What I wish was different

Was moved a couple times to work as a floor sweep even though that wasn't really my hired position. Working as a floor sweep was more strenuous for me than being a loader, but I understand the move for a couple days because it was Amazon Prime Week and the warehouse was especially busy.

Advice

If you can make it past the first two weeks then the job is probably a decent fit for you.

Ups is really a horrible job, the only thing that kept me going was the payment.

What I wish was different

Work conditions, Air support, and more than a 10 minute break

Advice

If you really need the money then keep on pushing, its a good job money wise.

Simulation Engineer

May - August 2021 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I enjoyed working with my manager and vendors to revive a proof-of-concept project. I met a lot of interns and got experience from working at home. Everyone was so helpful and wanted us interns to succeed. I got to help with a main project and other mini projects along the way.

What I wish was different

I wish we had more time between the start of our projects and our presentations.

Advice

Connect with fellow interns and keep in touch with your supervisor/manager. Don’t be afraid to ask any questions!

What I wish was different

I wish the team I was working with had done a better job of training me at the beginning instead of loading all the training into when my work was insufficient.

Pre-Loader

June 2020 • Middleton, WI

What I liked

It's a fast paced job that always keeps you moving and on your feet. While the hours vary weekly, you know you only work 5 scheduled days a week (Tues-Sat), can choose to work in the morning or evening shift when being hired, and as a part timer, for every hour over five hours you make time and a half. This meant that during peak season I was able to earn about an extra $100 a day because you would work a full 8 hours.

What I wish was different

It can be strenuous on the body and you do have to realize that sleep is important, but because of the hours and varying start times you may find you have to miss out on fun events to ensure you are comfortable at work. Drinking lots of water is also super important, so they do encourage avoiding caffeine!

Advice

If you would like to be paid to work out, this is definitely an experience I would recommend! Moreover, for college students, if you work for UPS (there is also a Rockford location) you can get up to $5,200 annually in student aid from UPS by applying.

Global Customer Solutions Intern

June - August 2020 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

People were incredibly nice, lots of career development opportunities and learning opportunities

What I wish was different

The work was not incredibly meaningful. The internship was virtual due to Covid, so this could have been a factor.

Advice

This internship is what you make of it. Seek work, and ask questions. People are willing to listen and help at this company

What I liked

I love the ability to learn on my own without pressure of forcing the process.

I wish i could’ve gone in with more coding experience to truly understand the Automation side.

May 2020 • Lutherville-Timonium, MD
