    Unpredictable

    Package Dispatch Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe people are wonderful and there alot of training involved to help employees stay safe. Also depending on your supervisor, you will get treated to a meal (bbq or pizza etc) if certain marks are achieved like a month without injuries and safe driving.

    ConsSome of the managers there do not identify with the employees which is very disappointing and it seems that once you reach a certain age (50+) they force your hand into retirement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more thoughtful to all employees, union workers, drivers, part time supervisors, etc.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Learning experience but very high stress

    Part Time Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe benefits for an employee are very competitive however for management its average, you are exposed to a lot of industry insider information and responsibility. pay is a mix of salary and hourly so quite beneficial

    Consthe stress can be overwhelming, the amount that is asked of you should commend twice the income they give the average supervisor. high stress environment, dealing with the union can be a chore, it allows lazy employees to be around for a very long time

    Advice to Senior Managementget rid of the union, not viable but at least be more competitive in pay and benefits to your supervisors

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    UPS an average company to work for

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsGreat health, dental, and vision benefits. Decent pay raises.

    ConsGetting promoted is not exclusively on your hard work, based more on who you know regardless of the work you put in. Over work employees; ex. management wants 8 hours work done in 5.5 hours.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    HARD WORRK GOOD COMPANY

    Operations Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsCompany provides great benefits and a multitude of job opportunities

    ConsIn operations, most jobs are performed at difficult hours. But for some, these odd hours may prove to be valuable for more time available for children if your not too tired.

    Not for the Weak.

    Sorter/Responder (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsIn the long Term its a very good company to work for if you can survive long enough.

    ConsThe pressure of the job can lead all employees to make rash decisions that can affect others in the work place better of worse, usually worse.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet the people do their job the way its supposed to be done, professionally and as set by the standards that are already in place. Not the ones setup on the fly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
