    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...

    Former Employee - UPS Preload in Sharonville, OH
    Former Employee - UPS Preload in Sharonville, OH

    I worked at UPS

    Pros

    As a preloader, it was like getting paid to work out every morning.
    Steady hourly wage raises.
    Promoted safety with employee incentives (food, gifts)

    Cons

    Union job.. only promote from time spent and hard work won't allow you to move up.
    I would have actually stayed with the company forever except once you transfer facilities, your seniority resets to 0, putting that much further from driving (where you make the big bucks). I lived in Cincinnati, Ohio and am eventually moving to St. Louis, Missouri where my family resides but due to the resetting in seniority, my already three years of seniority would have proven to be worthless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There were good eggs and bad ones. The good ones connected with employees on more than just being a number. I understand management feels heat for misloads and etc. but coming from someone that worked there for three years, we do our best (most of us) and mistakes happen. Some employees may just require more training than others.

    Former Employee - Graphic Design in Hendersonville, TN

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

    Pros

    GREAT boss, great people to work with, overall an amazing experience. I was the graphic designer for the store, but also worked the stairs front. It could not have been a better experience!

    Cons

    It couldn't be full time :( and also you have to know a lot about a lot which can be challenging at first. But by the end you can answer any question about shipping and printing, and so much more of what they offer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None that I can think of

    Very consistent work. Physically active but not terrible, felt like you were working out at the gym during your shift.

    Pros

    Great Pay, Excellent benefits. Fair system of promotion.

    Realize the humanity of your employees. Reward all-star performers.

    Pros

    This company provides great benefits, really fantastic pay, the ability to move up, and different stations in the company. The managers there are also super nice and enjoyable.

    Cons

    The work hours arn't the best. You can either work 3pm to 10pm or overnight. I work overnight and it works great for my school schedule, but I am normally tired for the rest of the day.
