I have been working at UPS SCS (UK) full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
There are not that manyCons
No logic, management with no back bone, not open to change, too many process, too top heavy, not willing to pay the going rate, compensation package - there isn't one. People in positions who shouldn't be there. Sales staff selling a product which they have no idea about.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Your people are your greatest assets, reward them for what they do. It's time to stop talking and actually act.

- Application Details
I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at UPS SCS (UK) in February 2010.Interview Details
Originally applied for a supervisor's position. Company's policy is that you must pass the "MAP" test. A three part IQ test that consists of a 100 online questions that need to be completed 100 percent in 60 mins. You are not allowed a pen,pencil,paper or a calculator for the questions. You need to answer all in your head. Plus the director sat across from me the entire 60mins ( no pressure right ?) The second is a essay type of questioning. Third is a panel interview with three members of management teams. Needless to say........they didn't pass me through because my math skills are not that great. So they hired me as a Senior Team Lead in thier distribution center.Interview Questions
