    I have been working at UPS part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Variety of work schedules available, excellent benefits for a part-time position, good if you want to move up from within.

    Cons

    The work will put a strain on your body, just make sure that you pace yourself. Human Resources could also do a better job of communicating with employees when they put in requests for transfers, for example I was not granted an educational transfer even after completing all the required steps. I had to be the one advocating for myself and I didn't really get much help from HR when I needed them most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the In-n-Out trucks and reward the package handlers with simple things like pizza or some food every now and then.

    I have been working at UPS full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a current package delivery driver I have to say that the starting pay is good in my area, the benefits are phenomenal and my co-workers/management are even better. The work done on a daily basis is demanding both physically and mentally, if you can handle that day-in day-out its a great opportunity and a truly fun job to have!

    Cons

    The hours can be rough sometimes, not uncommon to be done with your route and called upon to help another driver. Very stressful sometimes when learning a new route on your own, 220 stops in an unknown residential area is rough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, great so far!

    I have been working at UPS

    Pros

    UPS provides excellent treatment for its employees. The pay is outstanding and the benefits are ridiculous. Oh and what's that? Retirement too? I mean seriously....

    Cons

    It's hard work... not something that any one off the street can do. If you can get through the chaos and the I sane speed of your normal work day you will soon find that this is indeed a gregreat place to work.

    I have been working at UPS part-time

    Pros

    I'm very excited to have a part time job with better benefits than any full time job I have ever had.

    Cons

    waking up early and being to work before 3 am is something to get used to. Balancing an on call job on top of UPS will be interesting.
