Pros

With 20 plus years at UPS I am 'grandfathered' into the old pay scale which is average in todays work place. Medical benefits have decreased and are average. Getting time off for personal reasons is usually not an issue.

Cons

Stress levels are high. Senior management under pressure to "improve on the numbers". This all rolls down hill to whom ever is in it's path. Supervisor morale is low. If you're a while male, forget about being promoted past the first level. (Although it stll has the flavor of a good ol' boys club!) If you don't have a family or can handle stress well.....then check it out.

Advice to Management

Lighten up! I've seen too many Managers retire recently and within a year they pass away! Treat people under you with some respect. Everyone has the same goal. Raise the pay scale for part-time warehouse employees. You get what you pay for. When you moved up the corporate ladder, don't forget what you left behind. Be realistic.

    Pros

    Benefits, benefits, benefits and that's it

    Cons

    Poor work environment, UPS has a diverse workgroup but with plenty of discrimination of many kinds, sex, race, age, etc. even though the supposedly harsh discrimination policy is supposed to prevent this

    Advice to Management

    Take a careful look at your employee morale, that especially of your pt and ft management group, none of us are really satisfied, for instance, our gain sharing checks are based on building performance instead of individual performance, well half of the management doesn't give 2 shi*s and the other half work their ass off and get great numbers yet don't get properly compensated
