    Pros

    UPS provides great entry level management opportunities. WIth relative ease one can achieve p/t management promotion and begin to develop skills that will assist you as you transition into your career.

    Cons

    UPS expects p/t supervisors to permanently stay in their positions. Many employees are lured out of the union into p/t supervisor status only to discover years later that this was an unwise choice. If you have no desire of attending college do not accept a p/t supervisor position as this will almost certainly guarantee that you remain a p/t employee indefinitely. Also, many high seniority union employees make terrific wages while f/t management receives mediocre compensation juxtaposed to the extended hours (60 +) work weeks they endeavor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incentivise your full time work force with a good life balance. If you fail to do so all that will remain is a dispirited swath of drones that are either looking for employment elsewhere or simply showing up to collect a check.

    Former Employee - Delivery Driver

    I worked at UPS full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is fantastic, especially for someone without a college degree. For drivers, getting out and about all day, meeting new people, and getting smiles from so many people during the day is incredibly satisfying. Decent retirement, available 401(k), stock plan for eligible employees, decent vacation time.

    Cons

    Incredible amount of ever-present pressure to perform.
    Performance goals are constantly ratcheted up.
    Complete negativity with the "manage by exception" management philosophy.
    Continual parade of blustery management types through the revolving door, each of which intends to leave his/her mark by changing something.
    Every new program, piece of equipment, operational change, or policy is designed with one thing in mind..... Getting more stops out of the drivers. The management who read this will say "Well....DUH!", without even thinking that there are limits to human performance.
    The systemic rot within corporate management is likely the worst part. There are still good supervisors left in the company, but human decency is not a valued trait in upper management, so the lower level supervisors that display compassion, or a willingness to do what is right by the humans they supervise, are locked into lower management. Machine like devotion to efficiency and performance are the most valued properties in upward bound managerial employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Human beings work for you, both as hourly and as managerial employees. Dump the attitude of "If you don't like it, QUIT! There are 1,000 other people out there that want your job". It is demeaning, counterproductive, and has turned the corporate culture rancid. It is obviously true, but few people want to work for a company that values their employees that little.
