    I have been working at UPS (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is excellent .health care is 100 % paid with 100 %coverage...with exception to eye and dental which is about 70%..coverage...pension is outstanding..full package with wages and benefits is worth 130,000 yearly..without a college education I am grateful for the standard of living UPS HAS AFFORDED ME AND MY FAMILY!...and with 27 years of service I now get 6 weeks vacation with 8 sick days..and 9 paid holidays...we work hard like many people in the work force but we are well compensated!.

    Cons

    The only con is while your children are young you give up a lot of family time..I never got to watch my kids play sports and missed a lot of their growing years...the job can be hard on your home life but if you can make it through those years you and your family will enjoy the financial freedom that UPS provides...and now I look forward to a prosperous retirement!...so hang in there all you young drivers...

    Advice to Management

    Ditch Orion ...95 % if your drivers are loyal and are out there to save time and miles !!! Orion puts ridiculous restrictions on them!!! especially in remote areas...and to upper management I would recommend you compensate your mid to lower management with the same excellent pay and benefits you give us drivers..when they see us drivers with better benefits it makes bitter management..everyone should be able to say they are proud and well compensated to work for UPS...it's what has kept UPS a cut above the competition quality employees for quality pay...

    Pros

    Decent salary. Moving a lot so you get a slight workout. Guaranteed weekends off.

    Cons

    For some this is con, but expect drivers needing you for some long hours. Weren't always organized in setting the helpers up with drivers.

    I worked at UPS (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay , no week ends, structured environment.

    Guilt factor for time off

    Allow your managers to take two weeks off at a time without feeling guilty

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

    Pros

    Loved the people I worked with and the benefits.

    Cons

    Could not for the life of me or my managers find a way to advance in the company. Much to the surprise of many I couldn't even get an interview for a number of entry level IT jobs despite having previous experience, four degrees, and being willing to relocate.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees the knowledge of how to advance in the company. You're losing good people who feel simply stuck where they are because they do their job well despite the ability to other jobs better.

    I worked at UPS (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Being a seasonal delivery driver was an eye-opening experience. It was impressive to be part in the holidays for so many people. It was a rigorous process, but the seasoned drivers are nothing less than professional and dedicated. Nonetheless it is rewarding.

    Cons

    It is an immense learning curve where new drivers must be focused and able to master key skills to safely and efficiently transport, deliver and accept packages, especially during the long, dark days of the winter season.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to pair new drivers with seasoned employees during the introductory process. It was extremely helpful even though it takes time and skill to begin to master the necessary tasks.


  10. "This company offers a lot of potential"

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

    Pros

    This union position has clearly defined pay increases and access to benefits. The company offers a solid career path for those willing to stick around.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for merit based pay raises. Employees do not receive any benefits until they have been with the company for a year (however, the benefits offered are good for a part time position).

    Advice to Management

    The management team at my location is great, always respectful to the workers. I would like to see SPA labels printed on a colored label to decrease the time searching packages for them (especially on white packages).
