That UPS is definitely one of the "other guys". That I often see women getting favored above males and specifically white males in order to promote diversity. So, my advice would be to really apply yourself. Don't let the special favor let you forget to work hard to become a valuable part of the company. And be aware, there are still a few "old boys clubbers" out there but they are few and far between now. However, don't discount them either...they carry a massive amount of knowledge. Be respectful and be willing to learn the entire company inside and out. There's still a very clear, conservative culture here and you will be required to adhere to the mores.
Part Time Management
I have been with this company 18 years, 17 as a partime sup. It was a good company until it went public. Now it's a joke. As far as who gets promoted it's sometimes who you know sometimes who you are demographically. I have been pursuing a promotion for the last 4 years. Because I know so much they are deliberately using me for a multitude of things rather than developing me for the job is was told I would get. They have no conscience about it either. It has been brought to their attention repeatedly. They do not take responsibility for their own unmet commitments. I'm disappointed to say the least. It's no longer a company that values their employees.
In my 15 years of working for UPS, I have had a variety of supervisors and managers, because as we all know, UPS likes to move their management around. That being said, all the managers that I have had to report to have always treated me fairly. But, at times, it can feel like a "boys network".
Two of the main things I love about UPS, besides the benefits, is that 1. They are a very family orientated company.
2. They actively encourage community involvement and volunteerism.
