    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 3 years)

    Pros

    I've met life long friends, reached goals I didn't think were possible, was given the freedom of being myself while choosing a career path that was just right. This company gives great compensation and stock. Depending on your skills in the field you can earn a lot of money. The culture is the best part, they give you freedom to do you job while giving you all the resources you need to get the job done.

    Cons

    Sometimes upper management can micro manage and they move around a ton, but when you get a good manager you'll know it because they can change your life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the AE's like their manager, don't move him/her, only move if there seems to be a loss in morale.

    I worked at UPS part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    With the position that I had, it was easy to get in a lot of hours if you are a reliable employee. They were really eager to work with the schedule that you had. The job itself was interesting because it was always changing and would keep you on your toes.

    Cons

    The work can be stressful as you often have to go to houses with unknown circumstances. IE dogs. This is not a job for you if you do not plan on walking much or are not in decent shape. It requires you to get in and out of a high truck hundreds of times a day, and lift heavy objects. If the weather is not good, too bad, you're going to be out in it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't expect every one of your seasonal employees to be a deadbeat. I understand that a lot of the people looking for part time jobs like this are often flakey, but that doesn't mean you have to treat every hire like that. I had a couple of instances where I got treated as an unreliable or less than great employee, but once I had been working for a little while and they realized what kind of employee I was, I got treated with much more respect.
