    Used to be better.

    Senior Technician (Current Employee)

    ProsStable, good people to work with, challenging, some growth opportunities. Some what fair compensations.

    ConsExpect a lot of knowledge and expertise with out pay reflection.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReevaluate how important technology is to this company. Take better care of the techs that support the systems that run the entire operations. Take care of the techs that are servicing the customers that are paying your MIP, bonuses and even the pt employees wages. We are loosing droves of 15- 20 yr people that are crucial for us to keep the technology advantage over or compedeitors.

    UPS has demonstrated great value and vision towards the future.

    Part Time Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsEach day is challenging and different. I actually look forward to coming to work and happily arrive early or stay late. Management above me gives me goals to meet that are attainable and rewarding. This company looks to promote from within and rarely hires outside. There is huge room for growth in this company and in coming years there will be a lot, I mean A LOT of positions opening up in upper management.

    ConsIf you are looking for a job that gives you the same task without variables everyday this isn't for you. Also, though there are different shifts to work throughout the day, some people burnout on the nights as supervisors because they cannot cope with the scheduling.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider working closer with middle and even lower management to learn about short comings of the company, or ideas for boosting achievement.

    Busy, fast-paced, and challenging

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsGreat Compensation, great co-workers. Flex time with your schedule. Management are great about giving you requested time off.I would still be with them except I moved out of state and the UPS in my current city has no openings at this time. I worked for them for 14 years.

    ConsPay could be a little better, but not bad.They need to rotate some of the older Management out more. Some have been in the same Dept./area for too long and have become a little stagnant and non-caring.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to your team members BEFORE complaints arise. Take the time out of your day, for even 5 minutes, to go check on your team members and see if they are okay, and how are they doing. This cuts down on resentments building within your area, and can often lead to a quick resolution to any issue, by just showing you care that there are issues and are willing to resolve them.

    One of the better companies

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsUnion job, fun coworkers, "figure it out by doing it yourself" training method. Part time workers get full benefits after one year of work. Promotion within provides excellent opportunities for advancement. Great learning experience and a better workout.

    ConsCompensation is average, about $10 per hour for hard work. If you work downtown you have to pay for parking which is an absolute nightmare.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider raising the starting pay. The pay rate and amount of work we're given isn't balancing out.

    If you can handle he stress...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou can predict bad days well in advance. It's something that you just learn over time. The benefits, 401k, insurance, and decent pay are not terrible for PT. No matter what there is always a solution. The people I work with are pretty great.

    ConsThere is a cattiness among PT sups. FT Management that leaves early. You get left in the dark on important things from time to time. Lots of reports to be printed. Promotions are a rarity. Little to no overtime pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook for PT sups that actually do their jobs. Communicate with the people who actually run things.
