    I worked at UPS as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Pay, Fun work, good benefits for full time employees.

    Cons

    Inefficient management of drivers and time.

    Advice to Management

    Start the day earlier so Next Day Airs (NDA) can get out faster. Organize package cars that travel to the farthest end of a loop so they can get out the door first. Notify drivers ASAP when volume is low and they are going to be sent home. Don't wait until they drive, sometimes up to an hour or more, to send them a text telling them to "go home and enjoy their day off, volume low."
    Get Drivers the tools they need to do the job!(i.e. Dollies, working DIADs, pouches for DIADS, etc..) Don't complain at the Drivers who aren't supplied dollies for being slow on UPS store pick ups. Get it together and help your Drivers be able to do their jobs!

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

    Pros

    36.40 an hour. Average 8 hours per week of over time at 54.60 per hour. Union protection. Made 99,xxx $ last year. excellent benefits package that costs the company over 30k per year. top of the line health benefits. 6 weeks of paid vacation per year. early retirement with a great pension. West coast pension fund is one of the strongest in the nation.

    Cons

    overtime can be brutal. zero flexibility with the job. Physical nature of the job can easily lead to injuries if you are not careful. Lots of old guys retire with wore out, broken down bodies. home late and never see your family. lots employees here get divorces.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not capable of doing the job that they supervise. Management has wasted billions on technology that did not help me become more productive. Actually helped me become less productive because the technology allowed me to finally work safely without fear of negative consequences.

    I worked at UPS part-time

    Pros

    Reasonable pay for the work. Productive. Get to move a lot if you're into that. Time goes fast (if you have a matching partner.)

    Cons

    There is a chance that you get an unfriendly and rude driver...in which case I suggest requesting a new driver. Traversing up and down big hills can give you blisters, so make sure you have the right footwear.

    Advice to Management

    Give clearer directions for exactly when and where driver helpers meet their driver partner so delivery efficiency is increased.

    Pros

    Awesome free benefits for you and your kids you do not pay for health insurance. The pay is outstanding. Keeps you in shape. You meet a lot interesting people.

    Cons

    You will work long hours up to 60 every week. The divorce rate is high due to being on the road most of the day.
