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

    Pros

    Co-workers
    Pay for part time and no experience
    Great physical workout

    I enjoy the work a lot. Having to unload trailers is challenging and I find it fun trying to beat my co-workers times. However, once you prove that you can go hard and are capable of doing so, they expect that all of the time. This can definitely wear a person down that is not prepared togoghard

    Cons

    Work conditions can be rough depending on weather
    Chance for advancement
    Demanding work
    Lack of hours

    Found myself and a lot of other co-workers getting sent home if workload is light. Since everything is predicated on seniority, this can be difficult for people without other jobs. This is definitely a solid second job to have.

    Advice to Management

    More fun activities for employees
