Pros

physical workout
promotion to managers after you take some tests
part time, so you can take classes as well
not much people skills needed

Cons

politics around safety and work performance
they want you to use all safety precautions, but while they are telling you that their actions tell you that all the care about is very fast and accurate package loading/unloading.
if the senior people come to warehouse, then someone from management comes to ensure that everyone is using safety equipment.
The senior managers don't bs with you they have belt managers to do it for them (who make few dollars more than package handlers)

Advice to Management

It's a physical job and i liked working out. I lost 30 lbs in 5 months. I was happy. Then, my belt manager quit. We never had good manager who wouldn't have mood swings. I even moved to early morning work loading delivery trucks. My manager has some mood swings issue. She would praise you then after 3 mins shes mad and 3 mins after that she be like "since you are doing so well with your packages why dont you go there and put packages into the bins..then she forgets to call me to come back..now i had my packages in the bins and everybody is leaving work..the drivers are there to drive. it happened almost every for 5 months. so after total of 20 months of work at UPS i quit...my fellow workers were happy that i had choice to quit because they had families asnd were there for medical benefits..I miss the workouts but i am happy i dont have to deal with bs.
