Current Employee - Part Time Package Handler

I have been working at UPS part-time (more than an year)

Pros

If you are union:

Pay is decent compared to other entry level jobs
Benefits are amazing (takes 1 yr to earn)
Hub I work at, hard work is appreciated
Job security
Opportunity for advancement if you are a hard worker, punctual, and don't talk back. I moved up from pkg handler to p/t sup. F/T jobs are rare but out there if you are willing to move.

Cons

Union dues (about $40 a month for package handlers) but the medical, dental, vision benefits are amazing and included for free. Non-union benefits suck compared to union but are better than nothing!
Other union employees are lazy, especially tenured employees.
Only big hubs have tuition reimbursement
Low hours (pkg handlers work about 15-18 hrs a week)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more people and don't run a sort so lean. UPS is a fortune 500 company and can afford to hire more people. If there were more help, the turnover rate would be lower.

    Centralized Decision making, relatively averse to public media in developing countries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fast track growth is required in Developing nations like India which is considered as opportunity hotspot for UPS. More penetration in Tier II & III cities, more branding, participation in public events, campus presence etc.

    Works with my school schedule. Very good pay and have learned many things that will help me out in the future.

    Find it hard to move up fast. You really have to put in a lot of time or have a degree which I will have soon.
