UPS uses a tuition assistance program to attract part-time employees to work the graveyard shift.
Much of the $300 million the firm has spent on tuition assistance programs over 10 years has paid for its trademarked Earn and Learn program for part-time employees.
“It’s very difficult to get people to come to work at 2 in the morning,” says Patrick Myers, the company’s corporate compensation manager.
So UPS pays $3,000 a year in tuition assistance for part-time employees and $4,000 a year for part-time supervisors. Full-time employees seeking graduate degrees can receive up to $5,250 a year.
UPS benefits from offering tuition assistance programs because many part-time employees stay with the company for years. “If you look at the top, a good portion of them started out as package handlers,” Myers says.
