    I worked at UPS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement programs we're great for students

    Cons

    Got injured then fired due to injury

    Advice to Management

    After my injury no one was able to provide me with paperwork to file for wsib. I continued to come in and tried to keep going even though I was in extreame physical pain and it was noticed from my co workers. Finally I was pulled aside and asked if I quit or not.. if I didn't agree to quit I would be terminated due to my injury. I suffered from a pinched syatic nerve in my lower back due to a heavy package coming down the belt and coming in contact with me while I was moving another heavy package.

    I have been working at UPS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lower level staff work hard and are friendly, it is almost more of a social club some days. Workplace has been quite 'relaxed', Many people have been there for a very long time.

    Cons

    No clear direction from management, complete lack of collaboration between international teams and offices. Many people have been there for a very long time with little expertise from industry.

    Advice to Management

    Try actually managing, try listening to your staff, try offering concrete rewards, try making the staff feel valued.
