Great Growth Pontential

Human Resources Representative (Former Employee)
Chantilly, VA (US)

I worked at UPS part-time for more than a year

ProsThis is a large, well-known organization with great pay, benefits, training and endless growth opportunities. You are your limit with regards to where you can go within the organization. They keep their staff up to date on current trainings and on-goings in the organization as well. It was a great place to work.

ConsEarly morning hours are not for everyone and during the peak season you are asked to go above and beyond your normal job description. Some people may see this as a con.
