I'm a 23 year old fella working for Alaska's first all-cargo airline in Anchorage, AK. I'm not a UPS employee, but I am thinking of UPS as a potential employer when I move to Seattle. I have a year and some change of ramp experience and hope to join their aircraft loading teams. Questions I've read benefits are amazing. I've read pay is around $10 or so (compared to $14 at FedEx, with not-bad benefits) What can I expect in terms of pay increases, workload and promotions? How do Seattle UPSers get treated? Please, also describe your union experience. I was previously represented by IAM and was pretty disappointed to have to pay my $40 dues for $9.18 an hour, employee-paid uniforms and zero benefits. This was with Swissport USA. More about myself... I am employed by Northern Air Cargo, where I feel like I really am valued. The job is nothing if not satisfying, because watching company aircraft take off every day, knowing people are getting what they need within hours is great. Knowing I make a difference at work is great, too. The job is enjoyable. It also pays great, with awesome benefits.
