Very serious work environment.
Pros: Experience, job enrichment, upward mobility.
Cons: Constant work overload. Redundant, fighting the same issues over and over without getting the proper assistance to be successful.
A typical day consists of accommodating the operation. Different questions and concerns people may have for HR. Also attempting to find people who are looking for that particular work. Phone calls, email blasts, etc. to increase applicant volume.
What I learned in this position is that at this level, everyone is very busy making it impossible to micro manage. This was very much so a positive, but I was often on an island by myself having to figure things out on the fly. I learned quite a bit, but also made some critical mistakes along the way. Mistakes that could have been avoided with adequate staffing. I often felt like I was doing a two person job.
My co workers and I rarely were in contact with one another. We had daily communication on certain issues and topics, but they were busy running their own functions. The most difficult part of the job are the demands. The demands seemed to constantly pick up despite increase of compensation. With the lack of support from our department heads, it's difficult to consistently accomplish goals. We are consistently having to fight battles with limited resources.
The most enjoyable part is the experience that I've gained. The company truly sharpened me up and prepared me for the world. Whether it be professional communication, time management, the confidence I have to walk in a room full of total strangers and convey new information and address questions, UPS has made me better and I'm forever grateful for this.
