Until 4 days ago I never considered being a UPS Courier but I'm fed up with my current job as a parts-man, with the exception of parts driving, which I really enjoy, so applied for one of the Edmonton jobs and the next thing I knew I agreed to an interview on Monday. I was initially quite excited by the though of working for a large well structured company with good benefits (as opposed to the family run farce I currently work for). However I have read a number of disturbing articles about UPS not treating staff well and people only stay for the benefits. if i'm successful at interview and get offered a position: what can I expect? How many times a week will I be doing a 12/13 hour day (work/life balance)? Am I going to be put under pressure to get my route done in unreasonable time frames? Will I get my own route or do routes frequently change? What else should I be aware of if I am successful & accept a position?
