    I worked at UPS part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent health insurance, but must wait a year and a half to add dependents.

    Cons

    Pre-Loader is a misnomer. You are actually loading the delivery trucks

    Not even a place to hang your coat

    Very dangerous work environment, employees constantly getting hurt. We got doughnuts during break if we went a week without an injury - during my time there we only got doughnuts twice. That's how bad it was.

    Supervisors constantly in your face asking safety questions which distract you and causing misloads.

    One break, most of which taken by supervisor telling employees how bad they are doing.

    Verbally abused by manager, union rep didn't help at all. Very worst company I have ever work for.

    Extremely high turnover rate. Only hope is to wait for a driver position, which hundreds are waiting for.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating part time employees like slaves. They are the ones unloading and loading your delivery trucks. Stop distracting your pre-loaders with repetitive questions to cut down on the mis-loads.

    I worked at UPS (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working hours are really good if you are a college student.
    They are very flexible about time off after your thirty days before you get your seniority. You have really high job security.

    Cons

    Management can be absolutely abysmal and they tend to abuse their power. When one of the supervisors ask you for something you have to do it as long as it is "reasonable"

    I have been working at UPS part-time

    Pros

    Good benefits after a year and very convenient for someone who is attending school

    Cons

    There are no benefits for people who work hard it's all seniority based so advancement opportunities are based on time with the company as opposed to work ethic or work quality. Outside of peak season there aren't many hours for part timers.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are available to part time supervisors and employees after a certain length of time. You know what is expected of you by management.

    Cons

    There's a strong culture of deception at this company. It seems like more documents than should be are being falsified in order to satisfy bewildering metrics. The pay is not great, and full time jobs are scarce, requiring in excess of a decade or two of service.

    Advice to Management

    Sweeping reforms are needed.

    I worked at UPS part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great if you stay hourly, but you have to wait a year to get benefits. The part time supervisors have to pay alot for healthcare and it's not as good as the hourly's. It's like getting paid to work out. There are various shifts to fit different schedules.

    Cons

    Hard work, little to no recognition, small pay raises, and you have to kiss up to upper management to advance in the company. They don't like when you challenge their ideas or way of doing things.

    Advice to Management

    Promote employees from within instead of bringing in people from different companies who haven't worked in this type of environment before. Tell your security employees they should do their job and not harass employees daily about things going on outside work. You should cross train more of your employees. Also you should have your part time supervisors train in all areas of operations. And upper management should have to spend a few days in the operations working side by side with the hourly employees to truly understand the job, instead of just calculating production numbers on a computer program.

    I have been working at UPS part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is reasonable, coworkers are helpful, job is quick to pick up, paid workout

    Cons

    Management attempts to be friendly but fails miserably, quotas are unreasonable, safety, while preached about is often neglected, tries to hard to emulate the military but it’s clear that no one there has a real clue about how the military actually operates, the hours can wreck havoc on your home life, would be a better deal if the hours were extended a bit
