I have been working at UPS part-time

Pros

Physical work, so you won't get bored. You get to interact with customers.

Cons

Working from early morning to late at night. Some days it can be eat, work, sleep. No time to do anything else when you get home but get ready to go to bed.

    I worked at UPS part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great if you stay hourly, but you have to wait a year to get benefits. The part time supervisors have to pay alot for healthcare and it's not as good as the hourly's. It's like getting paid to work out. There are various shifts to fit different schedules.

    Cons

    Hard work, little to no recognition, small pay raises, and you have to kiss up to upper management to advance in the company. They don't like when you challenge their ideas or way of doing things.

    Advice to Management

    Promote employees from within instead of bringing in people from different companies who haven't worked in this type of environment before. Tell your security employees they should do their job and not harass employees daily about things going on outside work. You should cross train more of your employees. Also you should have your part time supervisors train in all areas of operations. And upper management should have to spend a few days in the operations working side by side with the hourly employees to truly understand the job, instead of just calculating production numbers on a computer program.
