    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.

    I worked at UPS full-time

    Pros

    Excellent corporate culture, great place to learn about the private sector and launch your career.

    Cons

    The particular program I was in wasn't really set up to help you advance within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People who come into this program are extremely competitive, and more of them would be interested in staying with UPS, if more of an effort was made to help them find places within the company, and keep them onboard.
