Great opportunities for advancement, but not a young person's culture
Global Sales Operations - CRM Technology Intern (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAAugust 26, 2015
UPS has great opportunities, but the culture is geared towards 40+. The building is always quiet like you are walking on eggshells, but definitely diverse and good place to settle for the long haul.

Stressful, no-win environment for middle management
FRONT-LINE SUPERVISOR (Current Employee), Middleburg Heights, OHAugust 26, 2015
Middle management (front-line, part time supervisor) was the worst position in the company. No matter what, you never could have a good day. Upper management and the union employees wouldn't allow for it. My advice would be to stay in the union unless you have a degree to try and go full time.

loader (Current Employee), AtlantaAugust 26, 2015
Pros: easy to come up in company
Cons: non
A typical day for me is loading and unloading trucks in a timely manner. I've learned the basic of the company in my first few months. I have great managers, and my co workers are cool. Their really isn't a hard part to the job. The most enjoyable part is it is easy to grow in the company.

Package Handler (Part-Time) (Former Employee), Hodgkins, ILAugust 26, 2015
Pros: Union membership and good benifits.
A decent place to work provided you have no aversion to a fast pace and hard work. The excellent benefits including help with college expenses make it worthwhile especially for younger individuals looking to start a career or go back to school.

SAP FUNCTIONAL EDI/SD/LE CONSULTANT (Former Employee), Alpharetta, GAAugust 25, 2015
Pros: Great location, great peers.
Cons: Old mindset, not enough ERP knowledge in upper level management
Good place to work in general. Managers are great and very understanding.

Management at times are a bit too ambitious and set unrealistic deadlines but that is true for almost any company.

However it's a great place if you are just getting your feet wet in the SCM IT world.

UPS ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Lansing, MIAugust 25, 2015
Pros: Aetna Health Care, 30 days a year paid vacation
Cons: Only 15 hours a week
Enjoyed working for U.P.S. Management seemed to be on top of things such as MSDS training, Safety policies, equipment operations, and others situations that may need addressing. My favorite part of the job was watching the jets land and take off, the turkeys on Thanksgiving, the ocassional barbecue and the employees I got to associate with. United Parcel Service is one of the more proffesional companies I've worked with.

Don't do it!!!
Cashier (Former Employee), MIami,FLAugust 25, 2015
Pros: you get sunday off.. that;s about it
Cons: no breaks, no benefits
The retail store in Cutler Bay in the Southdade shopping center is a horrible place to work. The owner is rude/ungrateful and could care less about anyone or anything. All the owner is concerned about is taking peoples monies. NO breaks are offered , even when they see you working past 8 hours, The owner will do or say anything to get employees, after they are hired you see the "real" person . The owner is fake and insincere and tries to buy your friendship. The owner does not feel like anybody could succeed in life or do better. She's unsure of how you can even survive without her money. She's like to remind you its her money and if it wasn't for her you would not have . The turn around is hilarious and she could care less. She's unappreciative to the people that actually care and have feelings. She talks/makes fun of customers, charges extra, oh boy I can keep on going . Unless your desperate for quick cash, do not give this owner the pleasure. you'll regret . Her biggest concern in life is, where her next meal will come from and who will go get it for her.

Dismally hard working environment.
Driver Helper/Package Handler (Former Employee), Stratford, CTAugust 24, 2015
Pros: None.
Cons: Long hours, back breaking work, no benefits, harsh weather conditions to work in and no respect.
This company goes through employees like a truck driver goes through toilet paper at a truck stop restroom. This analogy is apt because UPS treats its employees like the c**p you leave in a toilet (disposable and with no respect). With also the mindset being that there is plenty more where that came from. They treat employees like they are a dime a dozen and therefore are not entitled to the least bit of respect. Nor would they give the employees benefits like medical health dental because they treat the employees like slave laborers. Work them till they drop and replace them. I am glad I don't work for them anymore. It is a lousy company to be employed by.
