    Pros

    Always have loads of work. Never be ideal. Small team environment. You learn a lot. Decent benefits.

    No training. 10 days of vacation as apposed to other private companies. Less chance of promotion. Wait may be 10-15 years to get a promotion.

    Pros

    Good pay, good equipment, mostly good people you work with as peers.

    Cons

    Term mgr expects the impossible for some route drivers & constant negativity at the workplace leads to bad morale!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat each employee the same and with respect. Before YELLING at employees, drive a mile behind the wheel with them. Go THROUGH the day with each of them so you have a better understanding of what it is that YOU are asking them to do daily. "You catch more flies with honey than vinegar!"

    Pros

    The hours were great and it's Monday-Friday got off at 5pm. Trainer was great and helped us out tremendously never felt left behind.

    Cons

    Parking was HORRIBLE sometimes would have to park blocks away. Team leads were somewhat unprofessional if they didn't like you they could get you fired for no reason at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your employees and watch who you make your team leads.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bloomington, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bloomington, CA

    I have been working at UPS Freight full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Highest paid dock workers, clerks and drivers in the industry w/ guaranteed yearly raises
    Great benefits - medical, dental, vision (401k + match, tuition reimbursement, bonuses for non union employees)
    Plenty of career opportunities (operations, law/labor, HR, specialist, safety)

    Cons

    Supervisors work mandatory 50 hour+ weeks and typically earn less than a dockworker & driver
    Union employees run the show (work as hard or as slow as they please with no true discipline)
    Little incentive given to work hard (those that do minimum work still earn the same raise, if union)
    Terrible communication throughout
    Most supervisors are asked to change schedules constantly
    Little consistency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication needs to be improved greatly between upper and lower level management, as well as between departments.
    The amount of wasted hours is unreal.
    Consider hiring individuals who are more organized and proficient throughout.
    Give non union employees (specialists and lower level management) the option of adding spouses to their insurance.
    Find a way to fix the low morale of non union employees/supervisors, especially those at lower levels.
    Increase consistency between terminals.
