    Pros

    great benefits, pays for school, great healthcare coverage, short hours (for students)

    Cons

    you have to work third shift for them to fully pay for school, which can be a hassle for many college students. management doesn't care about you at all. during peak season (christmas, thanksgiving, mothers day) the hours are insane. pay isnt that great. heavy duty job.

    Advice to Management

    care more.

    Pros

    Good benefits, people were great to work with and my supervisor was really cool. Over time after 5 hrs was good, Paid tuition.

    Cons

    Only made 10 dollars an hour, in this day and age hard to survive on that, that's really the on con i can think of. It is hard work so if you don't want to work then my advice is to not apply for the job.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to management, i thought they did a great job and was very fair to everyone, they just expect you to work and do a good job.

    Pros

    Easy work, not very much stress, nice management

    Cons

    Stuck in the same position for 1 year no matter what, below national average pay scale

    If UPS wants to keep people long term they need to consider raising their pay scale.

    Pros

    Good heathcare benefits working hard gave you more opportunities

    Cons

    working nights made regular life difficult or even sometimes near impossible

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees, because when you respect them and their life outside of your work, they in turn respect you and work harder to show you their appreciation.

    I have been working at UPS (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay for your school Decent wages for basic labor Work 5 days a week guaranteed Get paid holidays and vacations Free healthcare

    Cons

    It gets really hot in the summer Most of the management is dumb, unorganized, and rude. Most of your part-time supervisors are 18-19 year olds who have never held a position of power before. They have no experience managing others and like to hold their power over the workers. You rarely get appreciated for a hard day's work

    Advice to Management

    LIsten to your employees. Some of them have been there 10, 15 years or longer and obviously know how to do the job. Just because someone is a supervisor or manager doesn't mean that they know everything better than the employees that actually do the job everyday.
