    Pros

    By far the best benefits you can get for only working 17 hours a week.

    Job advancement all depends on timing (everything is seniority based except management) but is very much worth it if you can become a package/feeder/air/combo driver.

    Great work out.

    Teamster (union) influence (in most areas it's pretty good - some centers I've worked at were absolutely terrible as far as the company/union relations)

    Cons

    Very physical - at my current center (of 5 years) I've seen 4 or 5 military reserve employees quit due to physical stress (they actually walked out mid sort). When working a night sort (local sort), summer temperatures in the trailers average over 140 degrees. During the winter, preload sorts (morning sorts) can be single digit temperatures depending on where you live - and you WILL work in it.

    Though I listed it as a pro, seniority based job advancement can be terrible in specific cases.

    You can only transfer as a part-timer by means of education, death in the family, or mortal health/sickness. Transferring is impossible if there aren't any openings.

    Advice to Management

    Let us do our jobs. Stop meddling in "the work that is beneath you" (even though I found out a few years ago that very few UPS upper management has ever worked inside or even in package).

    Don't be afraid to attempt to boot lazy employees. Being an union employee I can understand getting rid of other lazy employees taking advantage of teamster protection. They're only slowing the company down and wasting everyone's time being there.

    Have more respect for senior employees and stop babying the new ones and playing favorites with your part-time/driver/building/regional/labor/HR managers.
