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

    Pros

    Very good support from the Union, inclusive work environment, regular pay increases. Many people like their jobs. Essentially, they pay YOU to exercise!

    Cons

    Beginning pay is low, during summer there is not always work every day for the new people. Supervisors change frequently and generally are too young to know what they are actually doing.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare your Supervisors better for their positions. Yes, some employees take advantage of the Union, but most do not.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are great, not too many companies out there offer the packages offered. Flexible when needed, don't really have to pry for time off because of all the hours we put in when here

    Cons

    Work life balance, there is none. If you have a family, they will be well taken care of, but it's tough to make family time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people on the front lines, they are your greatest intelligence asset

    Pros

    Fast pace, good workout, excellent benefits after a certain time, tuition reimbursement, good people and sometimes fun.

    Cons

    Little pay, long list to become full time or driver. It gets hot and sometimes dangerous. Management will ride you if you are a good worker.

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

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Plenty of opportunities to move around in the organization.

    Cons

    Base pay should be higher for the amount of business we are responsible for. Sure, the total compensation may be competitive. But our base salary and commission structure is not strong compared to similar positions at other large companies.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to compensate your people more or you will keep losing top talent.
