Pros

One of the most financially stable companies in the world to work for. They really take doing the most with the minimum to extremes. This is very important in todays ultra competitive economy. Just be ready to WORK, WORK, WORK! There are NO easy jobs at UPS.

Cons

They can be a little behind on newer technologies which makes an employees life safer and easier. (I.E. Power steering for drivers, hoists for mechanics, etc...)

Advice to Management

Promote the best people qualified for a job, not the people that help meet a quota. This is a recipe for economic ruin not only for UPS but the United States as well. Mediocrity isn't what made UPS and the USA great, it was the best and brightest people that drove our success!

    Pros

    The ability to move to other positions. Hard to get fired unless you wanted to. UPS supports United Way and denotes a lot of money to help ours and the communities. UPS offers 3% return in stocks on 401K and offers good benefits for full time employees.

    Cons

    Fast pace environment, can be exposed to a few chemicals mainly smog from the trucks. Could get injured if not following the safety rules. The moment you enter a UPS facility, you are being watched. UPS measures everything by numbers.

    Advice to Management

    There is a clear line between managements and other employees. Some managers look down on others because of their titles and the number of years they worked with the company.


  2. "UPS had good jobs with descent benefits but needs more job flexability"

    Pros

    UPS has an average compensation package for both part time and full time employees. No place is 100% safe but UPS also has pretty good job security especially for its union employees. In may jobs you are lucky to get a raise at all but at UPS you can always count on the 3%+ every year at the same time. They also have college tuition reimbursment for those looking to continue their education. UPS is especially great for women and minorities. They have MANY oportunities for advancement for both.

    Cons

    Depending upon the department you work for you may not get much family time. Many of the supervising jobs require MANY hours (60+ hours).

    Advice to Management

    I would ask for more flexability in scheduling. In my position I have great flexability, can work from home and love my job. People in operations don't have this luxury and deserve more time.
