The most ridiculous place to work! Took the job for benefits (husband self-employed) after spending 15 yrs. in Corp. America and thought it would be a perfect part-time job. Never worked in a union environment before and have to say that I truly pity the drivers and package handlers. Being a PT Supervisor I've come to learn that UPS' Management philosophy is to lead by (bullying) intimidation. The Managers are not only uneducated but totally unprofessional. Their vulgar language, many indiscretions and deviant behavior is what drives and instills the hostile environment that exists. Union people are like their prey and they sit back and wait for you to make an honest mistake and go in for the kill. (I'm starting to believe that the success of a Manager is based upon how many people they reprimand.) What's surprising is that Management and PT Sups make mistakes daily with absolutely no repercussions. I've seen times where a Manager would make a mistake and turn around and find a way to blame it on a Driver. UPS needs to wake up and realize that its success is based upon the service provided by their DRIVERS! They are the face that the customers see. In a customer's mind, the DRIVERS are the ones providing the service. I don't understand how UPS does not realize this and treat the Drivers with respect. (With publicity about drivers throwing, kicking packages ... one has to wonder if that driver was reprimanded before going on the road.) In a nutshell, if you're contemplating working at UPS as a package handler or driver, know that you will be watched, threatened, harassed and without a doubt be disciplined throughout your time there. I have given my two-weeks notice and have a week to go. I am by no means disgruntled but can no longer work for a company who treats people in such a way and has very little moral ethics. I hope that the above provides insight to those contemplating a job with UPS. To the Drivers - you do a fantastic job and have made UPS what it is today. Keep up the good work and good luck to you all!
