UPS had a schedule that was part-time and in the evening which gave me the opportunity to be home for my kids during the day so they did not need to be in day care.

I liked UPS but I would work 4 to 6 hours with only ONE 10 MINUTE BREAK. I left because It was temporary and because of the one break a day.

UPS is a great company to work for as it provides the job security and benefits needed to provide for my family.
Preloader (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCMay 27, 2015
Pros: Excellent benefits
Cons: No room to grow
I start work at 4:15am by "pre-tripping" the trucks I load. Pre-tripping involves removing any obstacles inside the truck such as a handtruck, stocking the truck with totes for next day air envelopes, and pulling any hazmat slips from the previous workday. After that, I pull packages from presorted bins and load them onto the trucks to which they have been assigned. I am also responsible for sending irregular sized packages along the "irreg" belt so they can make their appointed destinations. Most everyone I work with is nice, but there are some who lack motivation and proper work ethic. The hardest part of the job is the heat in Summer. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to temp drive in the fall and winter months.

Pros: The 1st year was the best years

Loader (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOMay 27, 2015
I loved the people that I worked with at ups. I also got a great workout from lifting the boxes at a fast, but safe pace. I also feel like working in the trailers and loading the truck that It gave me the extra push needed to complete any physical demanding job.

Operations/Human Resources (Former Employee), Northwest OhioMay 27, 2015
Pros: Rotation of job assignments
Cons: Hours
Work hours generally between 10 to 11.5 hours. Can be stressful at times due to the demands of the job. Co-workers typically band together to resolve issues and provide support to one another.
Management typically very good with tons of experience, but expect results without excuses. The most difficult part of the job were the hours worked. Company did stress a work life balance, but it was difficult at times due to job responsibilities.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the problem solving and seeing the results from your and co-workers efforts

Safety and Compliance Supervisor (Current Employee), OregonMay 26, 2015
Pros: Good health benefits, tuition reimbursement, awesome PTO and vacations
Cons: Long hours, full time jobs are hard to come by, advancement is difficult
UPS offers it's employees great benefits. However, full time jobs for both management and inside employees are few and far between. The company claims it loves to promote from within for management positions, but many of the positions are filled with off-the-street hires. Many of the full time jobs pay very well, however, they definitely require you to for your money, oftentimes requiring full time management employees to work 60+ hours a week (especially during Christmas, aka peak season-- don't expect to see your family much or partake in holiday traditions). Full time jobs also require a college education-- it is almost impossible to advance without a degree. UPS is a family, and the employees, both hourly and management, treat it that way.

Working for UPS was a challenging but enjoyable experience
Seasonal Assistant (Former Employee), Fort Benning, GAMay 26, 2015
The work for UPS varied from day to day whether it packing boxes, serving customers, to loading and un loading trucks. There were no goals or incentives but it was a job that when you finished your work for the day, you were done. I learned how to work efficiently and fast while maintaining the quality of work needed to get the job done correctly. It was very fun learning and getting the experience

Best part-time job
Package Handler (Former Employee), Dallas-Fort Worth, TXMay 26, 2015
Pros: short shifts, good pay, fast paced enough to keep from getting bored, cool coworkers and supervisors, free holiday turkeys
Cons: have to work two jobs or live really simple but really good paying part-time job after awhile
This was the coolest job I ever had. If I had not been in debt during this time I could have made a comfortable living just working here part-time and worked my way up to supervisor or driver.
