    I worked at UPS

    Pros

    I enjoyed UPS. The people are great, the pay is fair, and the benefits were good. Most managers really cared about their staff.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is office drama. It is difficult to progress in one's career because there are just so many employees. It is easy to get stuck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep your eyes on opportunities to grow your employees. Also, be cognizant of office politics so it does not create a dreary work environment.

    I have been working at UPS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Generous compensation package and benefits. No chance for nepotism or cronyism which makes it a fair field for advancement. Training and education of employees is the ceiling of industry standard which gives career a boost if another opportunity arises elsewhere.

    Cons

    Very fast paced career from the start. Working conditions are based on the weather of the region. Strict rules to abide by while wearing uniform or driving (protects company name and image). Don't make plans unless it is on your day off.

    I worked at UPS part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, even for part-time workers. Even when only guaranteed 3 hours of work, I still received tuition assistance.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. A lot of workers don't seem to make it past the probationary period. Made it difficult to keep a consistent work flow going because you were always adapting to a new person in the crew

    I worked at UPS part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The hours are great, you work early morning and get off early and have the rest of the day to enjoy. The pay was excellent. The supervisors and upper management were fun to work for and very nice.

    Cons

    For me there were no cons it was an enjoyable 2yrs working there and have nothin to complain about. It all depends on your workmates and supervisors as to whether or not you enjoy working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more appreciation days for the workers.

    I worked at UPS part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, great co-workers. A very great place to work, as long as you are able to wait until a full-time position opens up and you are selected for that position. A great place to work for college students.

    Cons

    Need more full-time opportunities available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should definitely try to have more full-time opportunities available for employees.

    I have been working at UPS part-time

    Pros

    I have not been there long enough to receive any benefits but they say that the benefits are good They are always concerned about safety before anything

    Cons

    The work is very steady and consistent. There are packages you load that are over 70 pounds

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to the managers is to make sure your employees are not without liquids as it very hard work and any member could get dehydrated fairly quickly.
