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

    Pros

    -good benefits
    -hard to get fired if you've been there a while
    -drama from stressful times does not last over a day, people reset the next day
    -paid holidays
    -great tuition assistance program that pays over $5000 that you're eligible for the day you start work!

    Cons

    -low hourly pay
    -not enough hours per week to live on
    -high expectations from management, they measure brand new employees to seasoned employees who have been with the company 20+ years
    -they have been hiring and promoting a lot more females than males. Females have extremely bad attitudes when asked for help.
    -No career advancement, jobs are reserved for single moms over people with education.
    -number of years with the company far outweighs any advanced degree or work experience.
    -drivers make way too much money, often blasting music on expensive portable speakers in the office
    -treating customers poorly is encouraged
    -promised career advancement with my Bahcelor's degree. I applied to over 30 jobs and wasn't even contacted to interview for any
    -unprofessional language that would not be tolerated in any other corporate environment
    -union workers are invincible. they set bad examples for new drivers and it drags down the culture
    -people who bring personal issues into the office are often in higher regard than hard workers who keep their personal lives separate

    Advice to Management

    culture needs a revamp, it's not okay to have a bad attitude about doing your job. Get rid of the union, the workers have nothing to fear and as a result they do and say as they please. Recognize people with education, UPS could really use it!
