To all the new Hires: If you are just starting at UPS know this. UPS is basically a world within a world that makes its own rules without any consent or opinions from its employees. With that being said their are some good and bad things in the company like all places but the cons could overweight the pros depending on the type of person you are and what you want to do. If you are a business minded person than this is the place for you, and if you are in school its even better cause a degree could take you to places in the company. However if you are not and you dont like to be around a fast paced environment that only cares about their numbers than please quit as soon as you find something better. I see people that have been there for years and they are making good money but their bodies are broken and they are sad that they have put so much time that they cant leave anymore, dont put yourself in that spot. The company and the Union are at war and always will be also respect is earned not given. Just do what you have to do and your be fine and keep your eye on the prize. I have worked at UPS for 6 years and my goal is to get my degree and leave. Hope this helps on advice.
