Dishonest Management

Supervisor (Former Employee)
Dewsbury, England

I worked at UPS full-time for more than 10 years

ProsReasonably well paid for the industry, but you will have to put in the hours to earn it.

ConsHypocritical Managers. Company policies are not followed, all in the name of profit. Bullying is rife, from the highest managers downwards. Dishonesty is the best way forwards. If you go by the book, don't expect to progress

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a policy book, use it. You have a code of business conduct, use it. Be honest.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

UPS - A Place To Work!

Administration (Current Employee)
Nottingham, England

I have been working at UPS

Prosjob security, christmas chocolate box! competetive salary based on similar jobs in the local area. holiday allowance is good, in own department always willing to be flexible. fairly relaxed working day within own department. recognition scheme works well in general even though it is just a token gesture. open door policy works but getting results is a different matter

Conslack of promotion based on merit and actual ability, management team selected on basis of who you know and not what you know, cliquey atmosphere. not interested in helping employees reach their potential. working environment could be better, cramped office space, bad building maintainence. inability to apply its own policies.

Advice to Senior Managementlisten to employees more, sometimes they have good ideas, we are educated people who can think you know! look at the yearly ERI, this should tell you what is happening!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

although full time is nearly impossible you have job security, good benefits, and good amount of vacation

Part Time Package Handler (Former Employee)
Ontario, CA (US)

I worked at UPS part-time for more than 3 years

Prosgood amount of vacation, raise in pay every six months or so. benefits are great and the job itself is easy. As long as you keep it good with management you will be fine. easy money. working for a good company like UPS for long opening doors at the beginning because of being able to work for a well known company. I would gladly go back to UPS if i could.

Consthey dont really offer full time. technically have to put your time in. but 10-15 years of part time just wasnt for me. I hated that when i first started time I went in was from 12noon to 4pm. every few months it would just be later and later. now an old friend still working there says there start time is at 330pm and there out by 830pm. those are just ugly hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementI know your under a lot of stress from upper management but just take it easy and let your area loaders do their job. there is no need to threaten or babysit. being under that type of management just sucks. dont try to act like your smarter than your loader especially if they have been doing that position for a long time now.
