    I worked at UPS Canada part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work-life balances are ok although you should expect to be forced to earn every dollar whether you are loading or unloading and you will be tired at times. You can get up to $4,000 for schooling provided you pass your classes and show your transcript. The max pay after 2.5 years is pretty high.

    Cons

    If you are looking at growing a career here, for the love of God don't. You have to be a real sycophant to want to move up the ladder here. The benefits get smaller and smaller as time goes on and the company is typical of that of an American company where it's profits before people. Do this job only while you are going to school. This is part-time and turnover is pretty high so if you make it pass probation and somehow last a year or longer, it's considered a miracle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys really should consider hiring more people in the warehouse and expecting one person to do the job of 3 people is absolutely insane. Give more hours to the part-time staff so that they can do their jobs safely and effectively and make the pay far more attractive. Value people before profits and you'll be around for a long time.

    I have been working at UPS Canada full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I am only here for the paychecks. Benefits and pension. I have met and worked with some really good people. I think I am the only management person who has tried to treat the staff with respect and understanding. .

    Cons

    Any other management does not really care about the employees. They may say it to their face that they care, but I have witnessed first hand that they don't. Even Supervisors get yelled at on a continual basis. Do what you are told and keep your opinion to yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yelling at your subordinates is a sign of a weak leader. Treat everyone with respect. Yelling does nothing positive for the employee or the company.
