Productive and growth opportunity

Busy work schedule. Opportunity to move up was a plus. Load and unload trucks, vans, or automobiles. Read maps and follow written or verbal geographic directions. Plan and follow the most efficient routes for delivering goods. Obtain signatures and payments, or arrange for recipients to make payments.

Seasonal hire (driver originally ended up as a helper)

The hiring process is very logistical/ automated. That being said If you don't hear back give them a call cause chances are someone messed up. I was given the PVD application while I was applying to be a driver helper so this caused some slow downs. But after calling them they were able to resolve the issue (I was waiting a week cause of a clarical error) That being said management are great people. Wool socks are a must. Unfortunately the lay off process was with little to no warning so if you're a seasonal just work like everyday is your last (after new years).

Pros

Pay, co workers, fufilling work

Cons

people who order furniture and generators

Great team and rewarding

I worked with many different drivers and routes. All the drivers were easy to work with. The typical hours were from 4 to 8 hours a day the work is pretty physical. During the peak season, you could deliver up to 400 packages a day, but it seemed to go fast The management was easy to work with.

Very Fun, simple, easy

My driver was amazing, the job is so easy and simple. Ride in the truck, take the package to the house or business. Simple as that. Super Fun and easy

Hard Work but Rewarding

A tough job, but the company mostly treats you well and provides significant pay even if you're part-time or a contractor. Would recommend for most anyone.

Fun

It’s a fun easy job making good money. It is not for everyone. Be ready to move 6+ hours a day. Overall, if you can move quickly, take direction well, and don’t mind hard work, take the seasonal position.

Quick Hiring Process, Little Available Work

Deliveries have slowed down in recent years during the Christmas season for UPS so they cut our funding for the Driver Helper program.It's simple supply and demand, nothing personal or bad reflecting on the company itself, just the sad reality of the situation.As a result, I could not stay available for a job that only gave me about 5 hours a day of work and not work 5 times a week.

It was fun to go around delivering packages to people houses.

Typical day was get in the truck and get handed a package and bring it to the house or building. The management was very helpful for when I was confused on something. The workplace culture was good.

easy job

Easy job just short hours. It was a seasonal job but great pay. the only issue was the hours. The hours varied depending on the help they needed. Friendly environment experience with the different drivers I was assigned to.

Mixed pace

As a helper your not really overwhelmed by packages your driver will make it easier for you but most don’t if you like pushing heavy objects this is the place but majority are lightweight.

Fun seasonal job

Great workout everyday plus you get to meet new people all the time. Fast paced job but very fulfilling. Nice to get to know the entire area you work in for a two months or so.

Driver Helper - Seasonal

I worked as a Driver Helper during the lead up to the Christmas holidays or what they call "peak." I was paired up with a driver and helped them deliver and pick up residential and commercial packages. No driving required. Job posting said it would be 3-5 hours per day. but I worked 7-8 hours per day, which was no problem for me. It depends on the workload, which can vary from day to day.It was a fun job, fast paced, always moving, and you're on your feet most of the day. Working outside, in all kinds of weather! Packages need to get delivered! It's not a job for everyone though!Getting paired up with a good driver, makes all the difference, but it's the luck of the draw. I got lucky!Sadly, it only lasts for a few weeks (November-December), but it gives you a good idea of what being a courier is all about.

Pros

Fast paced, good workout, working outside.

Cons

Short term contract: 4 to 6 weeks

Seasonal work with UPS is ebullience. A truckload of packages seems exhausting! However, after procuring effectuate; it develops and promotes daily physical fitness.

Pros

Long term relationships with experienced colleagues.

Cons

That it's temporary every year.
