    NO work/life balance if you are in a position of or near operations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yes, if you have no life and dedicate yourself to UPS (and have a college degree)

    I worked at UPS part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits even for part-time package handlers as myself. I quit because I moved but I worked in the "small-sort" section of the ontario, ca HUB. Pretty easy overall, if you enjoy fast-paced environment especially during Christmas! Tuition reimbursement, purchase of stock, 401k , etc.

    Cons

    I was kind of disillusioned at the fact that most workers are lazy because UPS cannot really fire you unless you steal something. Also, part of your check goes to union fees! such a waste.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of the Union!

    I have been working at UPS part-time

    Pros

    You cant really get fired that easily as any other job. Benefits. Can easily move up a supervisor in after six six months of working there.

    Cons

    Work is tough for little pay. Not a good job for short term workers. In the summer it gets really hot. Some position much harder than other, but everyone gets the same pay? It should be that the harder working position should be getting paid than the easily to work positions! In order to work full time, you have to be there for about 10 years.

    I worked at UPS part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits, time off, pay is ok

    Cons

    Pay's good BUT they only let you work PART TIME and no advancement. They like the pretty girls. HR is non-responsive. If you lie you succeed, be honest and you don't go anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up***if you want quality people you have to give them full time hours. Spent 7 years of my life there for what. I get a pension of $35.00 per month "REALLY"

    I worked at UPS part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company has room for growth if there are years invested, but they are competitive with the pay even though it is usually part time when you start.

    Cons

    The people there have no enthusiasm to go to work, they feel the need to suck the life out of you when you are doing well for your life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should definitely step up in employee engagement, the employees are definitely tough around the edges when they work there.

    I worked at UPS part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    good amount of vacation, raise in pay every six months or so. benefits are great and the job itself is easy. As long as you keep it good with management you will be fine. easy money. working for a good company like UPS for long opening doors at the beginning because of being able to work for a well known company. I would gladly go back to UPS if i could.

    Cons

    they dont really offer full time. technically have to put your time in. but 10-15 years of part time just wasnt for me. I hated that when i first started time I went in was from 12noon to 4pm. every few months it would just be later and later. now an old friend still working there says there start time is at 330pm and there out by 830pm. those are just ugly hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know your under a lot of stress from upper management but just take it easy and let your area loaders do their job. there is no need to threaten or babysit. being under that type of management just sucks. dont try to act like your smarter than your loader especially if they have been doing that position for a long time now.

    I have been working at UPS part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    consistent hours, higher starting wage than minimum, benefits, weekends off, days off, health care, no experience needed,

    Cons

    unfair work distribution, low seniority equals low everything. Benefits, vacation, sick days, and everything else comes after one year of employment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat all equally, not just high seniority employees

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay raises. Union back-up.

    Cons

    Too long to go full-time. Been there 11 yrs and still part time. Everything goes by seniority not by how good of a worker you are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees who have worked there know how to do their job, don't need a new sup who just got to area telling us how to do our job.
