    I worked at UPS full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, fair pay, and good people

    Cons

    Upper level management does not do an active job of solving revenue-limiting problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your lowest level of employees. You emulate the military in so many ways. The military now makes great efforts to collect feedback from the lowest levels. It will save you money if you do the same. Some of your processes limit revenue because of unnecessary bureaucracy. Also, risk aversion is great, but relax a little. And ADVERTISE MORE OF YOUR SERVICES.

    Pros

    Strong company with opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    Some things will never change. Make an impact on those things you can change and learn to live with the things you cant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be consistent approach to managing each operation. External factors have to have allowances for deficiencies in some areas. Sometimes "things just happen"

    Pros

    The pay per hour is very good for anyone in college.
    You only have to work a set amount of hours every week so it is very easy to schedule around.
    Job itself is pretty easy.

    Cons

    Some of the people that you'll work with are not qualified to be in management.
    Limited promotion opportunities because no one ever leaves. You have to be willing to relocate to move up

    I worked at UPS part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company itself offers awesome employee benefits as well as opportunities for advancement. This is great if you plan on establishing a career. Also, if you have a family, that is where the benefits come into play.

    Cons

    If you are prepared to work in a dusty warehouse, uncontrolled climate, and start at the bottom of the barrel, just know what you're getting yourself into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supervisors should receive training on how to deal with employee moral.
