The money is decent if you don't mind the daily ups and downs of brokerage.
The people can be pretty great too. Good benefits and discount program.
Open floor environment means lots of chatter so it can be hard to focus. On days that it's busy the phone rings off the hook so you end up with a headache. Some of the people are abbrasive and seem to have no proffesionalism.. Theres nothing too drastic to make me say I HATE THIS PLACE. It's just not great.
Advice to Management
Take a break!
Having worked as a contractor w/ UPS for a couple of year-long engagements, I know the corp HQ mktg people and the Alpharetta SCS teams well. In spite of my "inside track" with proven skills and solid recommendations from supervisors and peers, I was treated very heavy-handed indeed in more than one interview undertaken for a regular, mid-management level position. I conclude that HR is hidebound in old school process. However pleasant and human my interviews with hiring managers went, I was eventually handed off to Torquemada, not even in the reporting structure for the target role, who grilled me as if I were a suspect in an investigation. After applying for several mid-mgr roles over time, even those that a UPS recruiter initially brought to my attention (!), I never, once, heard any feedback. No emails, no phone calls, no texts. This after hours of interviews and even a half-day of tests, which cost me a lot of $ due to No Work, No Pay. Simply unprofessional, heavy-handed, rude and inexcusable ways to treat any job candidate. Shame on you UPS HR.
