    Pros

    The pay is excellent .health care is 100 % paid with 100 %coverage...with exception to eye and dental which is about 70%..coverage...pension is outstanding..full package with wages and benefits is worth 130,000 yearly..without a college education I am grateful for the standard of living UPS HAS AFFORDED ME AND MY FAMILY!...and with 27 years of service I now get 6 weeks vacation with 8 sick days..and 9 paid holidays...we work hard like many people in the work force but we are well compensated!.

    Cons

    The only con is while your children are young you give up a lot of family time..I never got to watch my kids play sports and missed a lot of their growing years...the job can be hard on your home life but if you can make it through those years you and your family will enjoy the financial freedom that UPS provides...and now I look forward to a prosperous retirement!...so hang in there all you young drivers...

    Advice to Management

    Ditch Orion ...95 % if your drivers are loyal and are out there to save time and miles !!! Orion puts ridiculous restrictions on them!!! especially in remote areas...and to upper management I would recommend you compensate your mid to lower management with the same excellent pay and benefits you give us drivers..when they see us drivers with better benefits it makes bitter management..everyone should be able to say they are proud and well compensated to work for UPS...it's what has kept UPS a cut above the competition quality employees for quality pay...

    Pros

    As a seasonal employee, throughout the holidays, I received decent wages for the first 5 hours then time and a half for the rest of the hours, daily. Wish I could work full-time and receive great benefits!

    Cons

    The only real con I can think of, during my employment, was weather conditions. Once I got going I didn't feel as cold. I dressed in layers.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Make more than most individuals with degrees! No cap, annual raises! Over time is always available! No student debts to worry about making this kind of money! At end of current contract, (2017-2018) Drivers will be close to $40.00 an hour!

    Cons

    Have to start in the warehouse and work your way up! All positions are based on seniority so could take some time! Either invest your time and money in school to make "OK" money or work part time and invest in your future?!?

    Advice to Management

    Don't do it! Non-union positions!

    Pros

    Family based atmosphere, good training and upper management wants to see you succeed. Great learning experience for me as first time in management.

    Cons

    There are no good work hours, as times are determined by package volume. Hard work, not for the weak hearted.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue to pass down knowledge for part time supervisors to succeed at their job.
