    I worked at UPS Freight part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job security and request for days off are often always met.

    Cons

    Worked there for 9 years and wasn’t near to making it to full-time, Union and management are in bed together making crappy contracts to screw over dock workers, open dock environment which can be brutal. You’ll never get a 9 - 5 slot as a dock work unless have worked there for like 30 years if not more.

    Advice to Management

    The new management that always walks in are often tyrannical for they often come from a UPS packaging environment, they will learn.

    Pros

    Initially, being close to home was great.....when I worked!

    Cons

    As of today, I have been on layoff for 16 weeks. I waited 3 1/2 months to get this job. After 1 week of orientation, then working with another driver for a week, everything fell flat with their freight purge. Its beyond belief they would spend so much money to bring me on, only to lay me off. Meanwhile, senior drivers are getting OT! Doesn't make sense...

    Advice to Management

    I hope ups freight goes belly up like NEMF
