    Former Employee - Part Time Operations Supervisor in West Chester, PA

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

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits and It will give you very good management experience if you can make it through being an hourly for a couple years.

    Cons

    It's difficult work, there are often times where you're told to adhere to safety regulations but they want more work done than is possible with the regs in place.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff, but I know that won't happen since it would destroy the production numbers that they have to meet.

    Pros

    Encourage career growth. Always a new job on the horizon. If you are in the right job there is stock options. All in all, this is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Health insurance. They claim to have great benefits but it must only be for Union workers. Other than that there is not much bad to say in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Stay more in touch with the reality of the price war from the competition. Often felt like we are flat in regards to the need for new products and price points.

    I worked at UPS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is great but you definitely earn it. The benefits are also awesome, but again you more than work for them. Company culture is excellent there is a good spirit of working together to accomplish the goals.

    Cons

    Work life balance of ay kind is very difficult to achieve. Its preached a lot and they make you feel if you cant accomplish then its all your fault. Hard to achieve when you are told to work the extra hours or project deadlines are unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    work life balance needs to be worked into the culture. If not UPS will continue to loose quality hard working people.
