    Financial Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Uline.

    Interview

    They called me in under 12 hours of applying for the job online. They have an initial phone screen then email you several assessments; writing, typing, and sales to do before you get a phone interview. After the phone interview you schedule an on site interview and they email you nearly 4 hours of forms to fill out and assessments to take: Excel, Access, Word, Typing, and Writing. You arrive at the interview and do 2 more 1 minute number puzzles. After that you sit with someone in collections for a bit then have the interview. They don't tell you until you show up that the job starts in collections for a year before you may have the chance to get the job you actually applied for. I cant believe I wasted my time on this place. You guys owe me $200 for the time wasted with you.

    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Uline (Pleasant Prairie, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I received an email rejection letter from the company after I applied online. A few days later I received a call to interview in person with HR, they said the rejection letter was sent by error. First red flag. Before the in person interview you are required to complete four assessment tests online. When I arrived for the interview I had to take two more timed assessment tests. The interview with HR was very standard. They did inform me they have a strict dress code, skirts, dresses and hose for women. Are you kidding me? This isn't 1950. Very old school mentality.

They said my qualifications were impressive and I had good credentials but they were going to pursue other candidates ???

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Uline (Pleasant Prairie, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was a bit drawn out. Had to complete 4 assessments online and send in before the actual face to face interview. Then when on-site, had to complete two timed numbers tests, then finally meet with interviewer. Face to face was pretty short time frame, interviewer didn't seem all that interested in being there. Overall was not very impressed with the process. When the talent scout originally called to set up the interview, I asked her which area this current position was in. She gave me a pretty vague, round about answer which made me believe they were just interviewing to interview, not really looking to fill an open position.

    Business Analyst/Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Uline (Kenosha, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The process was typical and was tested same day as initial interview, expect timed tests math and office application testing, etc. It is recommended to wear a dress if female. I noticed all females were wearing a dress/skirt. After asking about this I was told it is "preferred" dress code. Not sure what is accomplished with this policy, may even be detrimental to the female work force. The HR rep asked typical questions. After interviewing with HR, the hiring manager was available and another interview ensued. Beware as this hiring manager used "consultant-ese" terminology that I wasn't prepared for.

    Sales Area Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Uline (Seattle, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Series of two interviews with a very extensive screening between the first and second interview. The screening included a Myers-Briggs test, a writing summation, a second sales personality profile exam, and a choose a scenario test. A common theme was that they told me how well the comp was for employees but would not share any kind of a range. ***I will say the recruiter told me I WOULD MAKE LESS based on my geography, even though I would have to work longer hours with more travel and accounts spread far apart. She was quite curt about sharing that info and it really felt like a power play which is odd for a screening.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received an email with some personality tests and a writing test. Was scheduled for a phone interview. It took a while to scheudle a phone interview. I had to call the HR department, which prompted scheduling of the phone interview. The two HR individuals I spoke to were both very nice and professional. I asked when they would be filling the position and there was no definate time frame. She indicated that most of the positions are new as a result of their 25% annual growth.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Uline (Pleasant Prairie, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    While I didn't have as negative experience as many of the other submissions, the assessments I was asked to take prior to the interview took approximately 4 hours and didn't correlate to the job I applied for. I was asked to do a Sales assessment although I was interviewing for Warehouse positions.
