Challenging, fast-paced logistics company
International Supervisor (Current Employee), Denver, COSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: schedule was conducive to staying in school, no work on weekends, competitive pay and benefits
Cons: high stress and long hours during the holidays made finals difficult
From training new employees, managing teams of 10-20+ union employees in varying job functions to data entry and analysis in high pressure, time-sensitive situations, working for UPS was one of the most challenging and rewarding jobs I have had.

Working amongst fellow college student, there was a definite sense of teamwork. Not only did everyone work – more... together to provide the best service to the customer, the camaraderie extended to volunteer and charity events as well as social gatherings.

A promotion at nineteen meant managing union employees of my parents' generation. Garnering such respect was an on-going challenge, but one that I overcame. I was never the supervisor of the same team for more than a year, constantly being reassigned to "most-help-needed" areas whether for production, safety or attendance issues. It was important to encourage team-building amongst employees, especially as many were new to the work force.

Eight years of developing strong communication skills, time management, cultivating professional relationships and coping with the chaos that is the holiday season while working towards my associates' degree has prepared me to face new challenges. – less

loader/driver (Current Employee), Athens, GASeptember 16, 2014
Pros: great benifits
Cons: the managment team could be better
A typical day at work starts at 8:45 having our morning meeting, at around 9am all drivers start leaving for their routes. I would drive to Loganville to do my deliveries which was about 140-180 stops. I would usually finish around 7:30pm. I learned a lot of different areas and businesses, I also learned how to manage my time better. Management team – more... was ok. My co-workers were great they help me learn more about the job and how to get through the day. The hardest part of the job was lifting some of the odd shaped items. The thing I really enjoyed about the job was the customers they made my day. – less

UPS in Cleveland horrible place to work.
Senior Customs Brokerage Representative (Former Employee), Middleburg Heights, OHSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: n/a
Cons: pay is horrible, workloads are crazy, bad managment
Bad Management. High turnover rate. This was a great place to work until the managers created a hostile work environment. when problems are brought to them they say "Figure it out but you can't leave until it's done." They will lie to your face and then deny they ever said that. They don't follow through on anything. They will do anything they can to – more... hold someone back so they don't have to give them a yearly raise. – less
