Current Employee - Manager in San Jose, CA

I have been working at The UPS Store full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

For me the absence of ladder climbers :0) It's a small work place with maybe 2 or 3 employees. The hours are good, it's hard to find a retail job were you don't have to work late nights. and for me no weekends. Plus I really enjoy the interaction with my customers. would be a great job for college kids, mostly part time.

Cons

no real advancement , a lot of running and multi tasking, there 's a lot of different thing that the stores do, it's not just shipping, there's your mail-room, and then corporate accounts, which sometimes you feel like you were given a job but no one told you what to do LOL But I still Love my job ;0)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Always have a couple of people to do the mail don't make the same person do it day in and day out the repetitive motion is a killer.

    Pros

    The fact that all UPS Stores are privately franchised offers a unique opportunity to identify with other local small business owners.

    Cons

    Unfortunately a comparison between The UPS Store and FedEx Office offers a painfully obvious view of how slow the overall progression has been within The UPS Store community. Equipment, employees, and general services available are lacking at 9 out of 10 locations.
