Provide better pay even if I'm not as beautiful as you want me to be. Maybe if I could afford to look nice, I would.

I would guarantee that the belts/conveyers were kept at a reasonable speed. After late trucks (Williston, ND ) I notice they increase the speed. The brain automatically fills in when at stress and the number of misloads is guaranteed to increase. Better to work carefully at a good pace than speed up thinking it makes up time. In the long run it is worse and mistakes are made. During volume there needs to be extra attention to detail. I would also guarantee that the space at the dock is appropriate - we have to stack boxes to the sides of/against the trucks and off the dock in order to keep filling with smaller packages. This seems out of order for safety, egress and should be of great concern to our corporation.

Send undercover workers to places that have had complaints from current or former employees to see if those complaints are valid.

Start times fluctuate. I was hired on to work 430 to 9. Some times they ask you to come in at 415 other times 445. Also I've never worked a full 5 hours. Usually it's around 3. I've been told once peak season hits the hours will get longer.

Your scheduled interview is with multiple people. You meet at the warehouse, in a room, and wait for everyone to arrive. An HR employee gives you a quick run down of the position, hours you will work, and pay grade. After that you get a tour of the warehouse. Once the tour is over everyone goes back to the room and is pulled in one by one (this is done in order of who got their first and so on). A few questions are asked, additional paperwork is processed, and then you pick a day to go in for orientation/training.

The pace is fast but management tries to make it worse by making you feel like you're gonna lose a high paying job for lack of performance which management tries to brain wash you like they are & expect you to work at a pace that's pretty much at a robotic pace. The management belittles their drivers & especially to other management as well as your coworkers. All you are to UPS is a number, which is all management cares about. Its easy to deliver 135 deliveries, 250-300 pkgs 30 pickups 250-500 pickup pkgs in under 9.5 hrs on paper. But if you work as they say they want you to & that's safety first, walk don't run, & use all the methods they preach all that work they say should only take you 9.5 hrs to perform will easily take you 12 hrs to do in 1 day.
