    UPS has some of the best benefits.

    I work outside so I'm always dealing with weather conditions. I have to simply be prepared for the weather and sometimes it sucks but it's not much of a complain

    Keep up the good job

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

    Pros

    Lots of great people to work with, from co-workers in FT management to the hourly employees. Received 3-4% raises every year, pay was good for the job. For the most part everyone is on board with getting results by doing the right thing. Company takes a hard line on anyone who does not follow this.

    Cons

    Missing holidays and special events with family due to working. Wasn't happy with their career development process- they pick some to move ahead and leave others in the same job for years.

    I have been working at UPS (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is great, hours are good and benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    Higher management doesn't seem to know what they are doing most of the time. Employees don't listen all the time since they feel protected by the Union.

    Advice to Management

    Don't force your way through the problem but ease into it.

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

    Pros

    Some of the people ate decent.

    Cons

    They have scaled back and now have the worst benefits ever. we are merely a driver and package handler company. The employees are the most unhapoy group of people I've ever encountered. Management are bullies. Absolutely horrible environment!

    Advice to Management

    They have no where to go but diwn.! (Apparently they know it. Used to be they wouldn't hire family members now they're desperate this year and change thatthey'll take anybody there bullying environment can get. Management also falsifies annual reviees, so they can give crappy increases. (Note, this review site is making me pick a location below I can only speak for New Jersey, Paramus and Mahwa, who aren't an option below. As if they don't let us rate their corporate offices! So some other division has to hold the bag, but I''m sure they're awful too.

    Pros

    It is a very stable job. They do not fire anyone but work their ways to make you resign.

    Most of the employees are 50+. No room for growth. This comment is from the corporate point of view.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire young talented people.
