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

    Pros

    Flexibility and extra money over the Christmas holidays. Thorough training and great people. Hiring process was very simple. If you work hard they will keep you on for the following year or even bring you on permanently

    Cons

    No AC in the truck. Only for the busy season. It's hard work to get everything delivered in a timely manner

    Advice to Management

    After seeing how hard the drivers work, I hope you continuously promote from within and It wouldn't hurt to put AC in the trucks.

    Pros

    UPS is a great place to work younger employees who thrive on new technologies. UPS is constantly creating and enhancing new technologies to streamline their businesses.

    Cons

    UPS has been labeled over the years as not being very flexible. This is changing but needs to change more.

    Succession planning is the most important internal issue you are facing. With heavy retirements coming up and a changing workforce, you must increase the focus on hiring and training a new workforce.
