To succeed in the United Parcel Service (UPS) at least the time I spent there, you need to be able to do a couple of things. Need to be able to at least lift 50 lbs, be able to follow directions to the tee when dealing with hazardous materials, also to remember that this is a VERY physically demanding job.
To succeed at UPS, you must be willing to get your hands and clothes dirty, literally. There are times when the operation is lacking enough people and IEs are asked to fill the gap. At first, this may seem like you are getting to know the operation and how it works, which is an advantage. However, you will notice that it becomes too frequent, even after years of experience. You must be willing to adapt (i.e. do whatever job they need you to do, including load and unload trucks, sort packages, deliver packages, etc.) and work greater than or equal to 50 hours per week as a salaried employee.
