Excellent workforce, still making adjustments in management
Welder / Fabricator (Former Employee) – Deer Park, TX – July 25, 2013
From day one the coworkers for the Shop Services division of UPS was very welcoming. I moved 1000 miles for this job, and everyone reached out to me with suggestions of areas to live, eat, and go for recreation. I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work with, and with only about 20 people in the machine shop, no one was constantly looking over your shoulder or micromanaging. However, missteps by management caused a few customers to pull their work out of the shop. Because of this, promises made to workers upon hiring were not fulfilled when they reached the end of the 90 day trial period. Because business had gotten so slow, I was new, and was making a pretty good deal of money, I was let go 4 days shy of my 90 day review. To my surprise my coworkers were very upset with this and many have reached out to me after leaving the company offering references, contacts, and anything else I may need help with. I'll miss working with those guys.
