    I have been working at UPS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I started with UPS as an intern out of college. After finishing my internship I was offered a full time position and I took it. Both teams I’ve worked with made me feel like I was a part of the family from day 1

    I have nothing but good stuff to say about my old team when I was still an intern, they were all great and I wish them al the best!

    My current boss is awesome and makes me feel like I’m his younger brother

    My direct supervisor guided me through the roles of my position and enhanced my skill set to perform ubiquitous and complex tasks with ease, if I ever have a question he’s always available to assist

    Everyone is really friendly and will always try to help you succeed in your position

    My first day at my full position my coworker brought bagels in for everyone as a welcome and the next day the VP of finance of the business unit brought doughnuts in for everybody too, that was awesome of them

    Senior management really care about their employees and they are very good at promoting from within

    Cons

    I really can’t think of anything bad to say

    At the moment I’m just writing anything to have the 20 word minimum in order to submit

    Advice to Management

    I’m not sure if this has happened before or not, I have not completed my full first year at UPS yet

    I would like to see a technology research and development competition among teams of co-workers in order to promote innovation within the company

    Each member of team must be working in a different position. E.g. one person in finance, one person in database development, one person in plant engineering etc...

    This competition would probably be best implemented after peak season so corporate employees have a better understanding how the UPS hubs and service centers function and operate
