The economy is starting to recover and you need to make some important career choices, the job you work now could impact your life for many years to come. Take UPS jobs, on the surface it looks like a great offer. You are paid a union wage and receive medical, dental and life insurance benefits and a stock option. But after taxes and everything what do you really take home ? While everyone pays taxes the C.E.O. of UPS brings home millions each year while the average worker is just getting by paycheck to paycheck.
You should check out stories posted online by UPS employees who worked with the company for 20 years and never got a promotion. This is not due to lack of performance, the problem with UPS is there is no room for growth. The job you have at UPS will be the one you have for the next 5,10,15 or more years. Some people might say it is a stable job but UPS could shutdown one day and when it does you will have nothing but a sore back and empty pockets to show for your work. We don’t want to scare you from working with UPS or any other large company but once an organization gets too large there is no point working for them long term, there is no growth or future.
