I worked at UPS part-time (Less than a year)
-The starting wage is now $10.50 which is an acceptable bare minimum for the work involved, decent raises too! But expect no more than 20 hours a week -If you work safely you're getting a "free workout", management considers this a job perk. -Union benefits/protection; once you're in the union it's very difficult to get fired. Many people work here solely for the stellar health benefits WHICH YOU WILL be needing after 15 years due to the nature of the work.
-Expect to be jerked around hard until you join the Union. I was hired to work in January for a week before being laid off for 2 1/2 months. Management is full of jerks who operate on a different wavelength than other workers. -The work is exhausting (and fairly dirty), this is not for the frail or asthmatic. The facilities lack A/C so in the Spring/Summer is it imperative to drink plenty of water. -Advancement is difficult or has strings attached: The average wait to become a driver is 8-14 years, don't listen to what HR tries to feed you. You can enter managment as a part-time supervisor in as early as 6 months; but you lose union benefits/protection. I've been told that this is "the last job you'll ever have at UPS"
Advice to Management
By trying to impress your superiors with excessive quotas you really generate ire from the union workers. Don't lie to workers about opportunities. If you treat people fairly it could be a much more pleasant work environment for all of us.
