    Pros

    Great job, great benefits, perfect for people that go to school and need a PT job.

    Cons

    Not so great for paying bills but gets better through years of devotion. It is seniority based so its not based on who works harder.

    Pros

    benifits are to die for, their is prospect for advancement, but the stepping stone, the job that gets your foot in the door is mistreated and taken for granted. i would become a driver for this company, or travel as management. but i wouldn't become so abusive toward my employees.

    Cons

    stress, oppression, constant harassment and verbal attack.

    Advice to Management

    be understanding, people are not machines

    Pros

    Variety of work schedules available, excellent benefits for a part-time position, good if you want to move up from within.

    Cons

    The work will put a strain on your body, just make sure that you pace yourself. Human Resources could also do a better job of communicating with employees when they put in requests for transfers, for example I was not granted an educational transfer even after completing all the required steps. I had to be the one advocating for myself and I didn't really get much help from HR when I needed them most.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the In-n-Out trucks and reward the package handlers with simple things like pizza or some food every now and then.

    Pros

    Public perception that I work for a good company.

    Cons

    Every person for themselves style of management. Work/Life balance is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    The secretive nature of the promotion process is very discouraging. It is clearly a matter of who you know that gets you promoted, not your qualifications.

    Pros

    part time shift with good benefits

    Cons

    Slave labor, non stop work. In hindsight I wish I never worked here. If I could travel back in time I would tell myself to never work here. My body still suffers from the work of unloading trailers. Low pay and the union takes a cut of it too. Unionized and still less pay then Fedex wich is non-union. Stoopid union fools.

    Advice to Management

    Stop yelling at employees
