    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...

    I have been working at UPS part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you like physical work, then this is the place to be.
    -Nice and easy
    -People to talk to while working

    Cons

    -Dealing with management / supervisors expecting the impossible from you, but then again, that's most work places
    -Can be very unsafe if you don't pay attention at all times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't really blame upper management to expect the impossible from us because that's the only way to push numbers higher and higher.

    But, what could really help is if someone would come down to the work area and spectate for a bit to see what happens when too much work is passed through an old 40+ year old facility that can't handle the volume of packages that come in present day.

    I worked at UPS

    Pros

    Part time - great if working preload and going to college. Helps as a second job too. Benefits are great even for just part time employees.

    Cons

    If dealing with anything related with handling packages, it's very labor intensive. Sometime long hours if full time. Management works 50 hrs + and sometimes 6 days a week.

    Cons

    you don't have time to get a fulltime job anywhere else because of there unstable work hours which leaves you with empty pockets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you need to up the pay for the type of work for the little hours you do give people hate being bruised up cut up scraped up sore and for what a 200 dollar check a week with 20 hours with gas and insurance you cant afford mcdonalds every day on that amount of pay or god forbid you smoke cigs theres a 4rth of your money its just very stressful

    Pros

    Benefits benefits benefits! Great advancement opportunities for those looking to gain experience in leadership positions.

    Cons

    Some people have the mentality that they don't have to work as hard, and others have to pick up the pace for them.
    Their safety mindset only applies in building, and their training is different for different locations, not all on one page.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on ensuring proper training for all stations
