New York, New York (PressExposure) March 05, 2012 -- Mark Zajdek recently entered his 18th year of service for the United Parcel Service (UPS), having received numerous accolades during his career, including several "Employee of the Month" awards and a "Pursuit of Excellence" award. His contribution to the company has been marked by impeccable attendance and consistent dependability, attributes that have helped him secure his well-paying position for nearly 2 decades.
When asked what he likes most about his job, Mark stated that he has "had the opportunity to enjoy a number of employee benefits, including medical/dental/vision/life insurance coverage, and discounted prices on Verizon, Panasonic, and Dell products." He also noted that he has been motivated to stay with the company for such a long period of time due to a "competitive salary and the opportunity to be promoted." Furthermore, he thanks the company for giving him the opportunity to obtain a Social Work degree by providing up to $3000 in tuition assistance to employees, and offering flexible work hours to accommodate his academic schedule.
During his career he's gained experience in various positions, and like many other UPS employees, he "sees himself remaining with the company for many years to come." Mark says that due to his long-term working relationship with UPS, he now earns more than twice the amount he made at his starting position. In fact, he says that "progressive pay rates and appealing employee benefits are the primary reasons he has been happy to remain with the company for so long."
When he started with UPS back in 1994, Mark was granted an entry-level position, and through his hard work, dedication, and flawless attendance record he was able to become promoted from within, and now enjoys a full-time position. This storyline is a common theme amongst veteran UPS workers, as the company believes in providing equal opportunities to all of their part-time employees.
In moving up from a part-time package handler to a full-time driver, Mark enjoyed work experiences that allowed him to utilize the knowledge he obtained through his Social Work degree, an educational accreditation that has proved to be fruitful in both his personal and professional life. He says that another reason why he is thankful for his long-term position at UPS is that "the company gave him the ability to help others in need by conveniently contributing a portion of [his] annual income to the United Way and other charitable organizations". Ultimately, Mark Zajdekis proud of his role in the company, and hopes that sharing his experiences will motivate others to seek a promising career with UPS.
