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

    Pros

    Inside sales reps get the best training in the business.
    The company benefits are second to none.
    Income potential is good and top earners make good $$$$.
    Promotions are there for those who want to succeed.
    Job security.
    This is a super job for recent grads and younger professionals. You will have top notch training and develop good work ethic.

    Cons

    Supervisors have supervisors who have supervisors who have supervisors. The overkill in oversight is keeping a good company from being a great company. Each supervisor has his own objectives and it all gets pushed DOWN to the sales rep. It can be suffocating. Way too much busy work demanded of the sales reps. Less time selling.
    Attendance policy is too subjective.
    Some ill-prepared employees get promoted to jobs they have no real-world skills for.
    Reps are subject to "luck" in territory assignments. If you get a strong territory you make money right out of the box. If you get a weak territory the system is designed that you have little or no chance to turnaround the territory until the new year begins.

    Advice to Management

    Do not try and run the sales organization like a distribution hub. Creativity and freedom for a sales rep to manage their own territory will result in happier employees, less turnover, more revenue and a better bottom line.

    I have been working at UPS part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay-part time salary is what you would making fultime in retail or restaurants

    Cons

    subjective promotion system-buddy buddy system "Act like a know-it-all, pretend to be aggressive and have causal conversations with managers will get you a promotion" if they exist. Full time employees in both management and union don't want to move up/retire. They sit their collecting checks limiting opportunities for part-time employees

    Advice to Management

    implement a more objective promotion system. Make sure division level managers know everyone on their team...even the ppl that work in the corners of the building. Mentor all those interested in promotion. Stop lying, playing mind games and thinking your so smart that nobody knows your trying to manipulate them
