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

Pros

Great benefits, good pay, promote from within, fast paced. Job security is also very high, UPS isn't going out of business anytime soon. If you work hard, do what you are told, and keep a good attitude it is easy to move up.

Cons

Bad hours either early morning or late night. Can be stressful due to deadlines and having to manage union employees.

Advice to Management

Value your front line PT supervisors. They are doing all the dirty work!

    I worked at UPS part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The job is simple; do what the driver says, pay attention to your surroundings, follow all of the safety guidelines, and be on time. The drivers all had to pay serious dues to get where they are, so they are really laid back and willing to show you the ropes. Do this for the season and you've got your foot in the door for potential permanent hire with one of the most dynamic companies in the world.

    Cons

    There were none for me. If you have little to no work experience or a lack of work ethic, you may find the position a bit too physically demanding.

    Advice to Management

    As you know, during peak season the package load per route increases exponentially; obviously warranting the need for more and more helpers as UPS continues to expand it's customer base. During orientation, a fellow helper told me that he heard about the job as advertised on a UPS package he received. Expound upon this advertising method for the helper job and you will find no shortage of helpers for peak season.
