    I have been working at UPS full-time

    Pros

    Respectful environment, strong anti-harassment policies, great benefits.

    Cons

    Employees not allowed to take vacations during holiday season and managers are required to be permanently on call. Salaries are much lower than market average for corporate employees.

    Cons

    The only con is while your children are young you give up a lot of family time..I never got to watch my kids play sports and missed a lot of their growing years...the job can be hard on your home life but if you can make it through those years you and your family will enjoy the financial freedom that UPS provides...and now I look forward to a prosperous retirement!...so hang in there all you young drivers...

    Advice to Management

    Ditch Orion ...95 % if your drivers are loyal and are out there to save time and miles !!! Orion puts ridiculous restrictions on them!!! especially in remote areas...and to upper management I would recommend you compensate your mid to lower management with the same excellent pay and benefits you give us drivers..when they see us drivers with better benefits it makes bitter management..everyone should be able to... say they are proud and well compensated to work for UPS...it's what has kept UPS a cut above the competition quality employees for quality pay...
