    I have been working at UPS (More than 10 years)

    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...

    I worked at UPS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is great but you definitely earn it. The benefits are also awesome, but again you more than work for them. Company culture is excellent there is a good spirit of working together to accomplish the goals.

    Cons

    Work life balance of ay kind is very difficult to achieve. Its preached a lot and they make you feel if you cant accomplish then its all your fault. Hard to achieve when you are told to work the extra hours or project deadlines are unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    work life balance needs to be worked into the culture. If not UPS will continue to loose quality hard working people.

    Pros

    Great company mission. The company is always looking for cost effective ways to provide superior service to customers. They also provide excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Everyone complains about the hours. Company culture could be better, but with any corporation I'm sure that is different depending on the region you are in..

    I have been working at UPS part-time

    Pros

    UPS has Decent pay, and flexible schedules It is a great place to work if you need a part-time job. Union represented job, health benefits after a year of seniority.

    Cons

    As with any place where you are loading boxes all the time it can be monotonous. The supervisors can be picky on how you load and such. Yet that is there job. Starting as a seasonal employee means you have to wait until the season ends to start seniority.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that less time to wait to get benefits would be great! Better pay than 10.10 when starting part-time.

    Great work environment. Fair pay. Management is very easy to get along with. Your co workers can be trusted partners
