    Decision Makers: UPS--What Can Brown Do for You? - AOL
    To many people, UPS is the way to get that almost-late birthday or Christmas gift to arrive on time. Every day the company delivers 15.5 million packages. That's 15.5 million tracking numbers. This takes a lot of manpower, so it should come as no surprise that the company also delivers 408,000 weekly paychecks worldwide.

    The company is well-known by it's former slogan, "What Can Brown Do For You?" It's also gained a foothold in pop culture. In the movie Legally Blonde the hot UPS guy makes a woman speechless. Same thing happens in Debbie Macomber's The Shop on Blossom Street; the protagonist's romantic interest is Brad, a handsome UPS driver. And in a decidedly unscientific survey more than 50% of those polled reported that their UPS deliverymen is "Very hot," or "Looks sexy in shorts." We should note that women deliver for UPS as well.

    So what's it like to work at UPS? More progressive than you might expect from Big Brown.
