    Fast track growth is required in Developing nations like India which is considered as opportunity hotspot for UPS. More penetration in Tier II & III cities, more branding, participation in public events, campus presence etc.

    Current Employee - UPS Part Time Package Handler in Tempe, AZ (US)

    I have been working at UPS part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Starting pay is $10 an hour, I've only worked for this company 14 months and I already make $12.50.
    Hours are perfect for anyone going to school or who has a second job.
    Lower management (i.e. supervisors) is always friendly and willing to help out.
    Safe work environment
    Keeps you in shape.

    Cons

    Very physically challenging job.
    Higher management loves to put everything off til the last minute.
    Can take quite some time to move up in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making "safety" rules that slow down the process then getting angry at the workers for following them. Either I work safely or I load 500 packages per hour, but I can't do both.

    I have been working at UPS part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you're overweight, YOU WILL LOSE LBS! It is demanding in that the job specifications state that you will at times have to lift packages over 70lbs. This is factual and in fact you'll be doing it quite often but that comes with the job. Persist, prevail and move forward! Pay is consistent and there will be opportunities to advance when the time is right, but the main key point in achieving greatness, is your personal attitude.

    Cons

    Supervisors are at times lacking in the training department because of time constraints getting packages offloaded and sorted to package cars. Some care and others don't. That's people, which requires that you, the employee, must have thick skin to deal with the daily pressures until your time to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the employees, who make you look good, a little better!

    I worked at UPS as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Straight-forward expectations, few distractions, resources, colleagues and leadership available when needed. Great work life balance, good pay, flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Quiet environment, maybe too hands off, maybe not enough interaction, and maybe not enough room to grow but it is all relative to what you are looking for.

    I worked at UPS full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    No Job in the country will pay you with just a state level drivers licence the rates that UPS will As a part-timer the Benefits is the money. As a full timer if you like overtime there is nothing but over time.

    Cons

    The pay just enough so you cant afford to quit and in the end you discover that you just another number if you ever get hurt. Full timers cant make plans during because the job is so unpredictable.
