Pros

The shift hours are reasonable for someone looking for part-time work or an extra shift to make additional money. The work itself takes some physical exertion but isn't hard otherwise. The setup of the workplaces makes it a fairly nice place to be sociable.

Cons

Shifts will be moved around with no say from the employees. Upper management shows little concern for Package Handlers so long as it doesn't affect their jobs. Some of the truck drivers have strict demands for the loading of their trucks and aren't afraid to harass handlers about it, even though they're not supposed to. Ultimately, the package handlers are at the bottom of the food chain.

Advice to Management

The drivers need to be told to back off sometimes.

    Pros

    Great medical and dental insurance plans, 401K and pension plan, and tuition assistance. Despite being such a large company, the corporate HR office still manages to be friendly and helpful. Part-time salaried workers (at management level) can make very good money working part-time and receive full benefits.

    Cons

    You WILL grow to hate the Christmas season. Smaller facilities often only have a handful of employees (drivers are not employees, they're contractors) which means you have to speak with someone in the regional offices if you have problems with your boss. This is obviously not ideal if your boss turns out to be a bully.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see them support human resource efforts at all levels.
