I was just hired as a package handler after my holiday help as a driver helper. I was under the impression that part-time employees were offered full health benefits after 90 days. Benefits are the primary reason I chose UPS and in many ways is more important than the hourly pay. Unfortunately, I found out yesterday that I need to work 1 year before I receive benefits. I was devastated to hear that and I am now considering turning down the job. After all, my entire check now (plus some) will be going towards the purchase of healthcare to my family. My questions: 1) Why did UPS change the policy from 90 days to 1 year? 2) UPS is not very clear nor is communication forth right. I still don't understand my benefits package after 1 year. Can someone please fill me in? Do health benefits cover employee only or the entire family. What is covered? Copays? What are the out of pocket expenses, etc etc Thanks!
