A job at UPS is more than a job. For many people around the country, it’s a life-long career with strong, reliable pay and benefits. It can lead to an education or promotion. Or an opportunity for entrepreneurs to get the support and benefits they need while they build their own businesses. At UPS, everyone can succeed – no college degree required.
We're proud to have worked collaboratively with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters for almost 100 years. We’re the largest employer of Teamsters in the world, and together, we’ve created industry-leading benefits and wages for both full- and part-time union employees. We have other union partnerships including the International Association of Machinists, the Independent Pilots Association and the Transport Workers Union, and recently have reached agreements that are mutually beneficial for our people and our company.
When you offer a path to success for employees, they tend to take you up on it. The result is helping people achieve economic mobility and creating a culture of people who love their work and love to tell you about it. With one of the strongest and longest-standing promote-from-within cultures of any company in America, we love supporting the career paths our employees choose.
While our hourly jobs don’t require a college degree to earn strong pay and benefits, we know college is also a path to success for many. And at UPS, you don’t need to be in a full-time position to receive tuition assistance – eligible part-time employees can also receive this benefit the day they’re hired.
For many, our part-time union jobs are enticing simply because they offer similar benefits to our full-time positions – including low-to-no cost healthcare, paid time off and a pension. So, you’ll find entrepreneurs and small business owners among our team, with UPS providing consistent hours, strong pay and top-notch benefits that free them up to pursue their passions.
Working at UPS can be a family affair. Kids follow in their parents’ footsteps. Spouses work together. And we’re proud (but not too surprised) to see a majority of our drivers and inside operations employees tell their friends and family to come work at UPS.
Maybe it's old school for a person to stay at one company for their entire career. But it’s not old school to be paid the best for what you do, have a secure retirement, get ample vacation time and sick leave, and not have to worry about healthcare coverage.
At UPS, we’re never ready to say good is good enough, which is why we operate from a mindset of constant improvement. We implement change when it’s needed and try new approaches to make things better.
