Actually makes it faster. USPS packs up a shit ton of mail and just ships it via UPS to another post office where it is further sorted out for delivery or off to another post office. This is cheaper and faster than shipping it via the USPS. DHL does the same thing.

It depends on the item and how clever you are. You have to enter and exit through a checkpoint to get to/out of the hub. The hub I worked in had a metal detector and security guards with wands. Every once in awhile, a cop will be there. Let me just say this: Many a new videogame was played before their official release date.

You work in a nice hub. Our hub was a piece of shit built in the 70's with not thought of the internet. We processed more packages per day than the facility was designed for. And even so, the management knew what was going on and did nothing because it is a numbers game. In our region, we still had less damages than our competitors so they turned a blind eye, I feel like. No one intentionally destroyed anyone's stuff. After a few months in 120-130 degree heat, you become desensitized and stop caring. I don't defend what happened there, I'm just letting people know.

UPS drivers make a starting pay of $14.95/hr + Time and half for overtime. UPS drivers work 8 hours per day, and any additional hours over that is overtime. UPS drivers can work anywhere from 40-70 hours per week depending on the route/population. UPS drivers usually get a dollar or more raise every year, and I think it maxes out at around $25/hr. I am really more qualified to answer UPS hub operation questions, not so much the driver questions. But I remember this being in the union contract before I left the company.
