Pros

benefits 90 days, set hours, stable job set pay, potential for overtime , able to become truck driver if u put in the time

Cons

hard work, a lot of carrying boxes, its basically hard labor if u can can handle it do it, if not then dont try. it is probably better to get some other part time job that doesn't require you to work odd hours and also hard physical labor.

    Pros

    To provide a little extra income. The income is very minimal, though, and the Union takes alot of it- in exchange for underrepresentation. The union is simply the Mafia- skimming money from the person doing all of the hard work and making the unions/reps richer.

    Cons

    You are litterally overworked and underpaid. The pace is too fast for most individuals. Turnover is 50%, as they tell you when you are hired. The work is dangerous and the equipment is outdated and not kept up. The lighting is poor. The climate control is absent. The working conditions are horrible- I don't know how the Union employees put up with it- did you ever notice that UPS employees never strike- I think that UPS pays off the Union to avoid strikes.

    Advice to Management

    lighting and climate control for loaders

    Pros

    You get to rotate to different positions every few months. They're flexible when it comes to experience level of incoming employees. Younger managers are great to work with and you are often called to leave the office.

    Cons

    Long hours, manual labor, poor work life balance. Prepare to work crazy shifts and long hours during peak season. Also be prepared to deliver packages, sort packages, and be a "helper" to drivers during snowstorms, heavy rains, and peak season (Thanksgiving to January).

    Advice to Management

    Respect the fact that your employees have lives outside of work even if you yourself do not.
