Dont know about your exact locaitons but to go from Pittsburgh, PA to most of California is 5 working days, some places 4 days, but also some locations in Oregon and Idaho it can take 6 working days. If you know the trakcing number you can actually track the pacakge on UPS's website

I ship packages from Oakland/San Francisco to Miami by UPS GROUND every week.
If shipped on Monday I usually get it following Monday in the morning... this is to commercial address with scheduled daily delivery. To residental address add 1 or 2 days.

It depends on how many times it's routed to each corner of the country. Get the tracking number and follow a package on it's tour some time - you will be amazed.

I was a sorter for UPS for almost 7 years, in two different cities. They sytem they have set up is amazing and is the best way to do it, the average package has less than 20 seconds of manpower from unload to load. We sorted 1200 packages an hour, per person. Ideally it should take 5 days but could take 6 or 7. Each building have someting called 'Hots', at least that is what we called them, they were the packages that had to get out by the end of the shift, the stuff that was really far away or really close. They had to be on the trucks by a certain time because the truck left. If it wasn't a 'hot' it might get left at the end of the shift, or for the next truck. Now on a 4 hour shift that had 140-170 average packages a day, these leftover packages might be 1-300 total not much but still enought to delay service a day.
