    I worked at UPS

    Pros

    The starting pay
    Work relationships with co workers
    Union

    Cons

    Pretty much screwed if you dont plan on staying or making a career of it. So if you are looking to stay at UPS its good. But earning your pay is hardwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good and hard workers are abused

    Pros

    Only 4-5 hrs a day. Room for mobility and advancement with seniority. Pay increases with time.

    No breaks quiet often. Union dues. Above-average labor loaders are pushed to limits. No off days except weekend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider not pushing everyone to hard.

    Pros

    you will get paid ever week for the work you do and a 401k plan that will jump start your saving for retirements .

    the work is hard and the pay is too small for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    put yourself in the shoes of the worker . its not as simple to tell people what to do with an attitude while there in a truck all day.

    I worked at UPS

    Pros

    They offer outstanding insurance for you and your family members. There is also career advancement potential if you can stick it out

    Cons

    Horrible starting hourly wage, only get 5 hour shifts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start employees at a higher rate and offer full time. You'd get much better employees

    I worked at UPS

    Pros

    Pros: great benefits, flexible hours , usually able to move you if you pass training if you need to move to another hub, pays you back to go to school

    Cons

    Laborious work, and is very dependent on multitasking, which is fine, but loaders often get blamed and can get fired if packages come in for wrong zip code that sorts didn't catch. (not me, so I'm not biased)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to not have such a hierarchical structure been employees- breeds resentment and people often antagonize each other to cover their own back.

  9. Hired as a temporary worker

    I have been working at UPS part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    benifits are to die for, their is prospect for advancement, but the stepping stone, the job that gets your foot in the door is mistreated and taken for granted. i would become a driver for this company, or travel as management. but i wouldn't become so abusive toward my employees.

    Cons

    stress, oppression, constant harassment and verbal attack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be understanding, people are not machines
