    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

    Great benefits and a company with huge growth potential. They promote from within and offer numerous training opportunities for those willing to seek them out. There is also tuition assistance for full time management.

    Cons

    Your work life balance will be skewed to the work side in most positions. A career in operations is very time demanding and is high stress. Part time management positions are not as financially rewarding as the hourly part time or full time positions.

    Advice to Management

    If you are in operations you must actively strive to make your home life a priority. Always take advantage of the training and education offered since they are applicable inside and outside of UPS.

    - work hard to eliminate unionization

    Pros

    Very simple work, mostly nice hard-working peers, once you learn your job you can have a good time while working, seasonal overtime is usually available if you want it, provided college tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    Managers are constantly changing and are usually pretty young and inexperienced, because of the union some employees put in the bare minimum effort and they're allowed to because they basically can't be fired

    Advice to Management

    Give quality employees benefits/perks like raises or promotions. Try not to move managers around so much. Find a way to penalize poor work ethic.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good job security. SCS is a non Union part of UPS, but they maintain good employee relations.

    Cons

    Low pay to start. They are expecting a lot out of us, and the job should be simple, but we are treated like supervisors for warehouse pay.

    Advice to Management

    At a local level there isn't much they can do about the pay. Keep the employees happy to keep the union out of SCS.
