Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Benefits, good initial training program, good atmosphere to work on your people skills and management skills if working within management

Cons

High stress, accountability issues, retention issues. If you want to move up in the company whether you want to drive or promote to management plan on doing the grunt labor for a long time, not an easy move.

Advice to Management

They might want to consider restructuring the training program for new supervisors, the information given is good and works but really has no help in regards to the operation aspects of you job. It works in how to deal with people, but lacks in how to deal with the actual operation.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Decent health insurance package
    Decent pay package
    Excellent job security
    Most employees really care about the company
    Relationship with customers

    Cons

    No good hours all shifts are a bad option
    Long hours
    Upper management hanging on until they reach retirement age and just filling a spot because they have nothing to lose.

    Advice to Management

    UPS for all intents and purposes runs itself, a large portion of upper management is clueless. They have either forgotten the business or quit caring when the company went public and they became instant millionaires.

    Pros

    The paycheck has been there every week for over thirty years. There is a pension and 401k plan for union employees.

    Cons

    The more you do, the more they expect. There is not very much appreciation or recognition shown for a job well done.

    Advice to Management

    Hold division managers to the same high standards of integrity expected of other employees. Reduce excessive compensation to corporate officers.
