    I worked at UPS Canada full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good people, hard working people who know what they are doing. unfortunately limited by the company

    good place to earn experience, and the name will obviously look good on the resume

    big on internal hires. so you have the opportunities to move around.

    good work life balance in my role, weren't expected to do much more asked.

    Cons

    people are limited by the company. no real opportunity to move up.

    a lot people in the company had been there was a long time (5+ years) but were still in the same position or same level as when they started.

    there was high turn over in my dept as they were recruiting younger people who were more ambitious and got the experience and left as they saw limited growth.

    low salary. not comparable to market for a company of the same stature.

    as the Canadian operations are part of a District (lowest level) not real priority on engagement, or employee satisfaction.

    Manager's were good people but limited again by the company policies.

    there was always this fear of authority in staff (not sure why)

    I have been working at UPS Canada part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pays pretty well for a PT job.

    Cons

    Micromanagement runs rampant at my warehouse. Regular patronizing of staff because they think we're not intelligent enough for autonomy. Essentially treated like cattle. Warehouse is decrepit and obsolete.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps lessen your concerns with "hitting numbers" because it's a very narrow metric to gauge productivity and profitability. Sure, it's great in the short-term but exactly what is your long-term plan? I see a ton of cutbacks to keep expenses low and your net high but it'll only last for so long since no capital expenditures have occurred for improvement and expansion of operations where I'm at. But hey, what do I know? I'm just some guy who shuffles boxes around for 4 hours a day.
