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.

I was a seasonal package handler and I had another fulltime job that was getting the way of me making it to work on time. The seasonal hours were supposed to be 3:30am- 9am, but it became as early as 12:00am start times often. I liked the job and wanted to move up within the company, but I had to choose the job that was actually paying my bills even though UPS has a higher ceiling. Probably one of the worst decisions I've ever made.

It was very difficult to obtain a full time position. The benefits were great and personally I enjoyed working in the Maspeth UPS night sort but i just needed more income.

They always said Safety first and then work you so hard and fast that safety goes right out the window which led to my back giving me trouble and won't help you out!
