There is not enough hours. Loved the job, but driving 20 miles a day to work for $33 without factoring tax is ridiculous

The pay is absolute garbage. They try to compensate by claiming it's easy to move up in the company and that you'll be in a much better position in a year. I had no interest in that, so I left and found a higher paying job.

The benefits are great but you are treated with little respect by management ( just a number). Management doesn't ASK you to do a task or TRY TO perform better; your belittled into the duty, "what do you mean you're doing the best you can, you were trained weren't you!!". If you go in expecting to move up the ladder, don't . per motions are very slow and assistant managers end up quitting. High turn over rate for assistant managers & workers. why do you always see UPS begging for workers, esp. around Christmas. It's not just because of the increased volume.

I came into UPS with little business experience fresh out of my undergraduate studies. My role was within the marketing department and I was force fed with information that was highly useful for any career path in IT.

The training was top notch but the pay was low for market standards. This along with the overall military culture made it hard to stay for too long. I found that advanced degrees were more important for promotions than skill in my experience within the UPS marketing department.The perks used to be a lot better back in the day so there is not much of a reason to stick around now that pension plans have ended.

I decided to pack my bags and move on to a new opportunity outside of the company but will forever be grateful for the training I received at UPS.
