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

Pros

Great pay, great benefits, fast paced and interesting work, lots of time off. Looks great on a resume if you are in management, lots of opportunities to move up within the company as well.

Cons

Likely to work either evenings or overnight if you are in operations. May have to wait to be promoted to full-time work if you are part-time.

Advice to Management

Invest more in your people, less in the numbers.

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

    Pros

    -Great for an entry-level seasonal position, compensation was $12.88/hr.

    -My dispatcher and assigned driver were a pleasure to work with.

    -Work is simple yet involved, provides great exercise! Involves: Lifting packages up to 70 lbs unassisted, constant walking, organizing packages in back of truck, logging upcoming and delivered packages in the DIAD board, and keeping a friendly demeanor!

    Cons

    -Most helpers will not have a solid schedule or permanent driver.

    -Management can seem out of touch with the guys out on the road.

    -No guarantee to stay with company after seasonal work, if you're persistent apply for package handling positions and you should get preference.

    -Work is unsuited for the lazy or extremely unfit, you're moving and using your arms & legs at a constant basis. Even athletic individuals will be sore into their first week.

    Advice to Management

    -Give your drivers room to breathe, they really work their butts off to reach nigh impossible holiday time quotas; this can mean skipping breaks.
