Pros

Worked on the airport ramp. Job stayed interesting mentally and physical. Good batch of co-workers looking out for each other. Benefits and consistent/guaranteed hours (union). Early enough hours doesn't conflict with full time employment. Strong safety awareness and equipment training.

Cons

Not optional union; hard to get rid of employees. Worked outside in all elements and early hours take awhile to adjust to.

Advice to Management

Stricter policies in areas needed to support termination of lack luster employees.

    Pros

    -Job Security is rock solid
    -Health Benefits
    -College Tuition Assistance, up to $1,500 every 6 months
    -Union Protection
    -Free lawyer services (even for speeding tickets!)
    -Company discounts

    Cons

    -Dangerous work environment
    -Claim that safety is a number one priority, however, that is just PR legal BS to shield them from lawsuits.
    -Harassment and coercion of injured workers
    -Fail to provide safety gloves or hearing protection that other far less profitable labor firms provide.
    -Health benefits don't kick in until 1 year now, versus 3 months in the prior contracts.
    -Low starting pay

    Advice to Management

    If safety is your number one concern, put your money where your mouth is and provide safety gloves and hearing protection. I've had hand injuries and now tinnitus for the rest of my life because of these unsafe deficiencies. Other labor companies I have worked for provide these free of charge, yet UPS a Fortune 500 company is too poor to provide safety equipment when "Safety is our number one priority". Most laborers are barely paying the rent the first couple years working at such low wages and you expect them to pay for the "privilege" of working safely? Spend less on your laughable PCM info sessions and safety zone, and provide tangible safety equipment.
