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

    Pros

    The whole UPS community can agree that insurance benefits are (were) some of the best any worker could ever wish for. I wouldn't know about them personally as I have not been there for long enough.
    Then there's tuition assistance at $15,000 and at least $1 raise per year.
    The work is challenging yet can be fun, a lot of the people who work for this company are amazing and there is never any worry about having to work weekends or holidays.

    Cons

    Knowing that you're working for one of the largest companies in the world, and while they continue to generate record profits in the billions: they'll occasionally request concessions on benefits and things of that nature.
    The supervisors are usually rushy, unsatisfactory work ethic is practiced regularly to meet deadlines and the amount of money you are looking at from the end of the week is not always pleasant. Especially if you do not have a second job or have not been there for at least 10 years.
    The starting rate of pay is abysmal, being promoted is very highly unlikely (unless we're talking about P/T supervisory positions) and because of all these things one must deal with on a regular basis: lots of people do not stay for any longer than 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that some parcels are very heavy, very damaged, or incredibly numerous. It is not easy to load or unload a truck filled with very heavy, very damaged, or copious amounts of parcels.
    Also understand that 10 minutes to cool down for "break" is not enough for the average human doing such hard labor.
