Is UPS a viable place to start a career? I am about to get my BS in Accounting and I am trying to decide if UPS is going to be a good place for me. I have a few questions I hope you all can help me with:
1. What exactly is the path to a management position if you have never worked for UPS before? Is it likely at all that I will ever have this opportunity? How long does it, on average, take to reach these positions and would my education help at all or be completely disregarded?
2. If I do not start before the busy season is over, do I have to wait to apply until the next one, or at a place like Louisville (20k employees) would there be enough turnover that I could apply in early 2010? The shifts they are offering just don't work with my school schedule.
3. Is there much opportunity for advancement from entry-level management positions to middle-level or higher? Or is it pretty much waiting for a couple of people to retire before you're given a shot?
I apologize for how long this was. If you can't answer all my questions that's completely fine, but any insight at all would be highly appreciated. Thank you!
