    I have been working at UPS part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    After a year, part time workers receive FULL TIME BENEFITS!!!! The best medical, dental, and eye coverage in the WORLD!!!

    Cons

    It really is hard work, but its do-able, and the employee environment is incredible conducive to personal growth. This was more like a pro, But you do have to work hard, understand that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope to join you one day. Try not to let PT management become the scapegoats of upper management problems.

    I have been working at UPS full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great culture, excellent pay and very dedicated employees

    Cons

    Because the business operates 24 hours a day the corporation has struggled for years to enforce employee work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think your online training is an excellent tool that you have made available to anyone who wants to self develop but you should consider having a training manager assigned to every division that is responsible for management development.

    I have been working at UPS full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Speaking from the business (not delivery) side of the house. Good benefits, the company really tries to do everything fairly and give their people a voice in how things are done. There is really a culture amongst employees - more than I've experienced anywhere else. They are proud of their great history that they cling to and often reference. There is a reason the company has been around as long as it has. They know how to weather the storm and come out even better on the other side.

    Cons

    Sometimes a little behind the times on dress code, etc but they do try to update them yearly.
