    I have been working at UPS part-time

    Pros

    I'm very excited to have a part time job with better benefits than any full time job I have ever had.

    Cons

    waking up early and being to work before 3 am is something to get used to. Balancing an on call job on top of UPS will be interesting.

    I worked at UPS

    Pros

    They have great benefits. If you have intentions on starting at a first level of support and get a lot of lateral "promotions" that cause additional work for no extra pay this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Not all but most of the management is corrupted. I have personally been to bars with supervisors and managers as a first level agent. Additionally they where sleeping with there subordinates. I watched the women that would sleep with them get promotions over other people when they did not have the knowledge or deserve it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have two words for the management. CLEAN HOUSE. Some of the supervisors you think are your top performers are sleeping with first level agents that are now coaches... *Cough *Cough Bravo *Cough.

    UPS Supervisor Job Review

    Former Employee - Part Time Supervisor in Las Vegas, NV
    Former Employee - Part Time Supervisor in Las Vegas, NV

    I worked at UPS part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, learn many skills needed as a manager, many opportunities for advancement, pay is good once you go higher than a part-time supervisor.

    Cons

    Pay is OK as a part-time supervisor. Management style is kind of archaic. Motivation from fear is a big thing (at least in the hub where I worked.) Could be from the GM at my location mostly, but I have heard the same for other Hubs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try motivating with rewards, it works better and creates a better environment.

    Great benefits, great company, plenty of ways to move up and advance your career. The employees really care about the success of the company as well.

    Cons

    There are no cons that I could think of. I am very happy to work for UPS.

    I have been working at UPS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was fair. Benefits were acceptable. As far as co-workers, there were a few good eggs.

    Cons

    Politics, politics, politics. Everyone has their own vision, and will cut your throat in a heartbeat to get where they want to go. This is the first place I've ever worked where you had to receive explicit permission from your current manager to change positions, lateral or otherwise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refine your hiring process. Something is seriously wrong if someone feels free to go into the bathroom, and cover the walls in their own feces, or assault another co-worker.

    I worked at UPS part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stability, consistant and paid time off.

    Cons

    Pay is no longer top. They do not know how to manage people. And their dress code is so 1900ish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review what the market is doing today and maybe run with a few changes.

    Pros

    They offer good benefits, and they do promote from within. They value effort and expect good performance. If you can get past their rule heavy environment, it's a decent place to work.

    Cons

    Micro-management for hourly employees, stringent rules and low tolerance for late arrival and absenteeism. It is difficult to transition out of the call center into the direct service centers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Things happen in life. Cut people a break!

    Pros

    Great compensation, benefits and leadership. You have opportunity to meet your customers and create great relationships. Long term career opportunites. Great retirement program. Profit sharing!

    Cons

    Long hard hours...especially Christmas season. Physically this is a very challenging job. If you dont like hard work for good pay...this is not for you.

    Pros

    Great benefits, stable company, tuition reimbursement, all the perks of a union job.

    Cons

    UPS doesn't have a lot of automation. Manual labor all the way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in modern package handling equipment. It's worth it
