    I worked at UPS part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a particularly great company to work for while going to school.

    Cons

    The union initiation fees coupled with low seniority make the first few months the hardest (another reason it is great for students who don't mind the sparse hours).
    Also, it can be very physically demanding for many people at first.

    I worked at UPS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of the few upsides for employees of the company is the decent healthcare benefits. Was in a position that no overtime was allowed, work/life balance was not a problem.

    Cons

    Management does not want its employees who are not in management to receive advanced degrees, CPA or certifications for fear of the employees leaving. The salaries are below average. No overtime was allowed for my department. More work was continually being added with no additionally staffing or work hours being added. Managers feel like they can talk to the direct reports anyway they want. Advancement is a joke. There is a procedure in place that is rarely followed. This procedure is frequently circumvented. The highest percentage of turnover in my building was for the specialist position. Specialist is the position that is between the hourly and management. You have so many specialist who feel frustrated with the promotion process and management that the majority of them have found better jobs that paid more and offered other benefits not offered by UPS such as tuition re-imbursement for Masters, paying for membership dues, providing and/or paying for training, etc.

    Advice to Management

    The all of the consolidation that the company has gone through the past few years, it is no wonder that the specialist are frequently leaving. When you reduce the all of the management positions other than oeprations and business development, there is no where for the specialist to go.
