Pros

Fast paced job environment-always something to do
great supervisors-for the area I worked in, kept employees motivated
straight-forward expectations-excellent training program- had two week class where HR expressed the requirements and how its not an easy job.

Cons

Power struggle between management and union leaves employees in awkward situation.
Low starting pay for the amount of physical labor.
Forced into union contract and therefor union dues-even though I knew it was a temporary job and I wouldn't receive the benefits for which my dues paid for.

Advice to Management

Create an option for part time non-unionized members.

    Pros

    One of the best things about ups, is there awesome medical benefits, for which you pay nothing from your pay check. This is a unionized company so, there are union due's but the pay raises are good, they also help students with school finances provided you maintain good grades. This company also promotes from within. P.S. the higher salary jobs do require a bachelors deg. Stable career job. Great pay compared to other relative jobs.

    Cons

    Micro management,To many chiefs, Union due's, long hour's

    Advice to Management

    Never change medical benefits, keep wages competitive, other than that, great company. Sets the standard for employee benefits among the elite American companies, and other companies should take notes.
