I have been working at UPS part-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Unmatched benefits, good pay, very nice retirement plan, greatest employees in any industry. Very stable work environment.

Cons

Management advancement is very political. Who you know, not always what you have done for the company. A lot of "We have our eye on you, let's see what you are capable of", but unless you are 25-40, you can forget about being promoted to a full time management position. Very hard to prove age discrimination. All about moving the number now, no longer customer service . Jim Casey is turning over in his grave.

Advice to Management

Promote based on merit please, and get back to taking the time to listen to our customers the way we used to.
