    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

    Full time benefits for a part time job. Great part time job for college students. Supervisor position offers tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Terrible hours. Need a bachelors degree to move past this position even if you are extremely qualified. Way too much work for the pay. Ever since UPS went public, it definitely lost it's luster and isn't what it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Give the frontline supervisors a little more credit because they make the operation run smooth, not the full time.

    Pros

    Very safety conscious culture. Our first priority is to work safely. Training our new people in our safe work methods is the first thing that they learn.

    Cons

    Only manage by exception. There are so many good things that happen on a daily basis that are just not recognized when one things does not go exactly as planned.

    Advice to Management

    as management, we need to do a better job of see the 99 things that go right. not only seeing the 1 thing that goes wrong, or at least not as right as planned.
