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

    Pros

    The benefits are good - particularly if you are a two-unit manager.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance: there is nothing balanced at UPS. You either work till you drop or don't work at all. Impossible goals are expected to be met and humiliation in front of peers is not uncommon when goals are not met. The workload and hours are unreasonable. Work/life balance is a foreign concept to management. Many managers and supervisors have been through divorces because of their responsibility to UPS. The management in the EBA Department micromanage their groups and overburden employees with too many reports, recaps, reviews, meetings and anything else that doesn't help grow the business. These reports are only used to cover the managers. If you mention it or disagree with their reasoning, you are targeted and removed as a disgruntled employee, regardless of you meeting goals.

  2. Great company!
