    Don't believe the hype

    Inside Sales Representative to Account Executive (Former Employee) Greenville, SC

    ProsThis is a sales environment, and the do an excellent job of selling you on a dream

    ConsEverything, they lie, they lie, they lie

    Advice to Senior ManagementI got hired as part of a fast track program and promised all the bells and whistles. While in training, they make you read this policy book to become familiar with the UPS policies. One in particular stands out "WE DON'T MAKE PROMISES WE CAN'T KEEP" This is a lie. We were promised a relo pkg of 10k, and never received it, we were promised that there would be numerous open territories, and those territories were not open. Training was supposed to be for 6 weeks, it lasted 10 weeks, I was forced to resign b/c I couldn't self relocate from FL to Oregon or NY. Advice: Do not hold training classes if you don't have open territory jobs, don't make the new hires read, live and breathe the policy book if the local HR can't uphold the policy. I was forced to resign, and the following week a position was posted in my area, and I was told they couldn't help me b/c I was no longer an employee. What happened to the family environment they preached about so much in training?

    High School with a pay check

    Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) Greenville, SC

    ProsJob security
    Good mix of fixed and variable compensation

    Not recommended

    Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) Greenville, SC

    Prosgood benefits and good pay

    ConsThey mess with your commission claiming errors. They dont have work life balance. If you are sick you are expected to work anyway. Overall the business is more important than you as an individual no matter the circumstance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't micromanage you hired professionals let them be professional.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
