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

Pros

1) Active job, moving all the time, see interesting neighborhoods
2) Only work weekdays, late morning, afternoon, early evening
3) Located fairly close to home
4) Friendly driver who knows the route
5) The UPS training ( 5 hours ) was very good, with lots of good tips on safety and how to
deliver packages.

Cons

1) Minimum wage, so this will help pay some bills
2) Only 7 weeks
3) Can be wet and rainy. Also, in the late afternoon and evening, dark, so a flashlight or headlamp
is recommended.
IMPORTANT NOTE - Do not take this job unless you are fit. There is a lot of walking and climbing
in and out of the truck. Fast paced, with potential for injury if you are not careful. Many people sign up for this position, but according to my driver, few make it though to the end because the job is physically demanding.

Advice to Management

1) Good job on interviews and training
2) Good job on the daily scheduling

    I have been working at UPS full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable company, stable job. Good people in general work here...

    Cons

    Horrible work life balance - expected to work minimum 10 hours (no lunch) to 16 hours. Even if you are a hard working employee and get a lot accomplished in 8-10 hours, the work culture of the company is that you are looked down at for leaving after working 10 hours. You are not rewarded for your efforts. A lot of management are quitting in this area - and the positions are not being replaced. So more work is pushed onto your plate with the same expectations of getting it done.

    Work through the holidays - forget enjoying Christmas or New Year's. You will only want them to be over and gone as it is the busiest time of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Please staff the departments with sufficient people. You can only squeeze so much out of your workforce before they either quit or drop dead. There are many good hard working people working at UPS but they need to be treated better.

    Pros

    Company provides great benefits and a multitude of job opportunities

    Cons

    In operations, most jobs are performed at difficult hours. But for some, these odd hours may prove to be valuable for more time available for children if your not too tired.
