    I have been working at UPS Freight full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    UPS makes every effort to keep the attrition rate low. The merit in UPS employment increases over time and tenure is beneficial.

    Cons

    Often new employees feel they have something relevant to offer and will try to invent the wheel. Onboarding and implementing change in an organization as large as UPS can be daunting.

    Advice to Management

    Decentralized control can go a long way to building the relationships needed between the worker and management. If the worker feels he/ she has influence in the decision-making process, job satisfaction can only increase.

  5. Fast Paced

    Pros

    Good experience for anyone starting out in the industry. Unless you have no other options, learn as much as possible, and move on internally or externally. In Memphis, the facility is an abyss.

    Cons

    Too political and cutthroat. All levels of management seem to fight against one another. Some dock employees seem to be more knowledgeable that the Supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Work together

    Management needs to teach supervisors how the show runs.

    UPS is a great company to work for.

    Pros

    The pay is OK. That's about it. I can't even come up with enough pros to fill the twenty a word minimum.

    Cons

    Management is incompetent. Management is unfair to everyone. Hiring requirements to be a manager within this company requires an IQ in the low single digits.

    Advice to Management

    Fire every manager from the CEO down and start over. Come off the checkbook with some decent salaries, perhaps steal some experienced people from FedEx.


  10. Decent compensation and promotion opportunities, but stressful negative environment w lots of job turnover.

    Pros

    Promotion opportunities were good, as UPS usually promotes from within. I was promoted as a dockworker. Decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    Negative environment Stressful expectations Poor training Long hours on salary

    Advice to Management

    Provide more personal and class training to new supervisors. Do not force shift changes. Follow your own advice and give more positive feedback than constructive.
