anyone work for UPS?

I'm thinking of applying online for a warehouse PT position. Only thing is I have a sensitive back...but they seem to be quite flexible about night shifts and I could really use that type of job

  • Doesn't it say the weight limit you have to lift? I think when I saw ads posted like that it said had to be lift up to 55lbs or something.

  • Good company to work for but I think they would be hesitant to hire you.

  • I think for a warehouse position you will be using your back alot. Not a good idea if you can't lift. I know our UPS guy lifts over 50 lbs all the time.

  • Sensitive back would be the reason don't you think?!

  • My hubby worked for them last season. They may not hire you if you cant lift the packages unassisted. You rarely wokr with another person on stuff like that.

  • I interviewed with them one time, but it was an office position.
