Great company to work for

IT Department (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

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

ProsThis is a really great company to work for, especially given that they're SO huge. I respected and liked my immediate managers, and really feel that they respected me and my talents. They fully supported one's personal and professional needs and development. They take care of good performers with a nice bonus structure.

ConsThe commute, which is obviously not really under their control.

although full time is nearly impossible you have job security, good benefits, and good amount of vacation

Part Time Package Handler (Former Employee)
Ontario, CA (US)

I worked at UPS part-time for more than 3 years

Prosgood amount of vacation, raise in pay every six months or so. benefits are great and the job itself is easy. As long as you keep it good with management you will be fine. easy money. working for a good company like UPS for long opening doors at the beginning because of being able to work for a well known company. I would gladly go back to UPS if i could.

Consthey dont really offer full time. technically have to put your time in. but 10-15 years of part time just wasnt for me. I hated that when i first started time I went in was from 12noon to 4pm. every few months it would just be later and later. now an old friend still working there says there start time is at 330pm and there out by 830pm. those are just ugly hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementI know your under a lot of stress from upper management but just take it easy and let your area loaders do their job. there is no need to threaten or babysit. being under that type of management just sucks. dont try to act like your smarter than your loader especially if they have been doing that position for a long time now.
