"Tough environment to manage people who do not make much money to stay motivated and help the company make multi-millions a week, while they take home several hundred a month roughly. Union presence doesn't help either."

"Its an OK job, but not for everyone. They allow the wrong things to happen when convenient for them. The expectations on a daily basis are not reasonably obtainable nor are they worth the compensation."

"A great company to work for with top notch dedication to excellence."

What do you like about working at UPS?

"I like the world class atmosphere with great leaders. I started off at an entry level position, and within 8 months I was a standout employee and eventually was promoted to supervisor."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Show up early, and be prepared to show examples of how you would succeed, given the opportunity, and lift with your knees. I would hire any employee who would display these characteristics while I worked for UPS."

What don't you like about working at UPS?

"The union's set-up for UPS really limited the amount of interaction I could have with my employees. If I needed to train employees further with a hands-on approach, a union representative would often step in and accuse me of stealing work from the hourly employees. This left me with an under-trained employee or a grievance filed with the union against me."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Every hour on the day we had to tell our employees what they were doing wrong in what was called a 4 to 1. This is where we told the employee one thing they were doing right, and 4 things they could improve on. Often senior employees had heard these criticisms so often that they would dread talking to management because they were told so often that they needed to improve. Even if they were excellent workers we still needed to pick out things they could improve on. The employees were forced to sign a document of the aforementioned conversation. Over time this concept really created more tension between management and hourly employees."

Supervisor
in Lenexa, KS

What do you like about working at UPS?

"It's great exercise, being on my feet all day long."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Turn around and stay unemployed. The pay sucks, the benefits suck, and morale is non-existent. I absolutely hate my job."

What don't you like about working at UPS?

"It seems like they preach how safety is number one, but really they only care about numbers and hitting their planned goal, even if that means shoving 10 lbs. of s*** in a 5 lb bag. Or at least that's what it feels like every day."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I'd do whatever I could to make the employees feel appreciated and happy."
