    I have been working at UPS part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Early morning hours allow you to go to school or have a second full time job. They pay up to $5250 a year for you to go to school and that starts they day you are hired. Great medical benefits and as a part time worker who else gets a health insurance plan with a zero dollar premium.

    Cons

    It gets to be hard waking up at 3am to move boxes.

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard work, don't just add more work because one is capable. This can lead to burn out.

    I have been working at UPS part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Health and Dental to part time employees Early morning hours works while attending school

    Cons

    If you work here long enough the labor will mean you'll have to go in and use the insurance. Hours during the holiday season are such that you will not see your family and will be working before 2 AM almost everyday

    Advice to Management

    Communication between facilities is abysmal. The managers at my location never have a clue as to what's going on until it's about to happen.

    I worked at UPS part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits for part time.

    Cons

    Managers aren't great. Varies widely. Wage is ehh but it is nice to be backed by union. Let's your work/pay scale balance out.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire part time supervisors off of the street with no knowledge of how the place runs.

    I have been working at UPS part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Is a good job for someone with a few hours to spare

    Cons

    Not a lot of hours in the slow season, which they do not warn one of beforehand. Not much information left to figure things out on one's own or by the loving mouths of the truckers that veiw anyone not a truck driver as an idiot. The drivers constantly contradict the management, creating a monkey in the middle scenario where the part time guy cannot win either way.

    Advice to Management

    Get new equipment! Figure out how to get the drivers to do their jobs without having to constantly fight with management, using the part-timers as the means.
