    I worked at UPS full-time

    Pros

    Paid weekly
    $2 raise after 90 working days (5-6mths)

    Cons

    Forced OT
    Long hours - at least 10hrs a day
    No benefits for 1yr
    No vacation for 1yr
    Poor communication

    Advice to Management

    Sort yourselves out. Miscommunication, high demands, poor work environment. Not one person who works there said what a great place to work UPS was, they were all miserable, which is sad.

    I have been working at UPS part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Part Time management is way better and less stressed than the Full time. I work evenings which makes a difference.

    On evening part time - they treat you better
    As long as you do your job you are ok
    Way less stress than full time or part time days

    Cons

    This company treats employees very poorly
    I worked days and it was horrible. The job wasn't hard but from the top to the middle managers to the supervisors - the system is flawed. They push too hard for numbers and employees are treated badly. On the other hand it is getting better at my depot.

    Advice to Management

    Protect your employees from upper management -dont just say yes to everything and put it on the back of people working for you.

    I have been working at UPS part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The drivers are always happy. Some train you on their system. I help them sort, retrieve signatures. Customers are always happy to receive their purchases, which gives me a good feeling, knowing they have securely received their packages

    Cons

    Waiting. Sometimes I have to wait on a driver showing up, could be 5 mins to 35 mins

    Advice to Management

    Allow your part timers to use the Daill system completely, 2 per vehicle will make deliveries easier and faster
