Pros

Good pay for part time work
Benefits Package (Once you get it)
Set Schedule
Tuition help for college students working the night shift
Good performance rewards

Cons

Belt supervisors can sometimes be immature and under trained
Amount of hours varies per night
During peak season some shifts lasted 7 to 8 hours

Advice to Management

Be more careful when selecting belt supervisors. Some can't handle the responsibility and don't know how to take advice from the workers even when they have been on that belt and know how it should be run.

    Pros

    Company that will not go bankrupt.

    Cons

    Excessive hours for what you are paid, 60-70 hr weeks are not uncommon. Lack of 401K match. No pension plan for new management. Poor stock awards for management. On call, and called, 24 hrs a day. Upper management over paid compared to frontline management. In an effort to demonstrate diversity, many unqualified minorities are being promoted only because they are minorities. Most unfair promotion process issues are due to this situation.

    Advice to Management

    Return the pension, return a 401K match, improve health insurance quality, reduce upper management compensation, Implement a promotion process based on merit, not based on minority quotas. Re-open labor contract and negotiate better terms that will allow UPS to compete.

    Pros

    There are none, and if you found some let me know, who you paid off. The only thing I liked about the job is some of the friendships I gained.

    Cons

    If you are not drinking buddies with upper management ( Hub manager or above.) Or don't suck up. Or not related to somebody in upper management. YOU WILL NEVER BE PROMOTED. There promotion process is a joke. You take a test with multiple choice and math questions, only one right answer but 2 people grade your paper seperately. That place is one the downward spiral and they did it to themselves. Steer clear of UPS' management jobs. There is suppose to be a supervisor go driving every 6 driver job openings automaticely but they don't fill the positions and when they do its only with their friends.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and start over. The part time supervisor does all the work but make less than the associates they manage..WHY IS THAT!!!! Oh and they pay for their benefits, yet the associates' is free. So becoming a part time supervisor is a demotion in your company. Houston Sweetwater Hub should be purged even more, all the way down to the full time supervisors.
