I have been working at UPS part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

1) Active job, moving all the time, see interesting neighborhoods 2) Only work weekdays, late morning, afternoon, early evening 3) Located fairly close to home 4) Friendly driver who knows the route 5) The UPS training ( 5 hours ) was very good, with lots of good tips on safety and how to deliver packages.

Cons

1) Minimum wage, so this will help pay some bills 2) Only 7 weeks 3) Can be wet and rainy. Also, in the late afternoon and evening, dark, so a flashlight or headlamp is recommended. IMPORTANT NOTE - Do not take this job unless you are fit. There is a lot of walking and climbing in and out of the truck. Fast paced, with potential for injury if you are not careful. Many people sign up for this position, but according to my driver, few make it though to the end because the job is physically demanding.

Advice to Management

1) Good job on interviews and training 2) Good job on the daily scheduling
