    I have been working at UPS full-time

    Pros

    Great team members. Everyone wants to help.

    Cons

    Worst case of micromanagement I have ever seen.
    Entire company is run like its in the 1950's.
    I've never seen in my entire life a supervisor act this way. Like a hawk waiting to prey on its victims.
    If this is the only opportunity that you have. Accept it till you find something else. If you have anything else lined up, take that over UPS. Extremely toxic. Supervisor controls the group through drama and fear. Tries to stir up issues between members purposefully to keep team under constant control.
