Warehouse Manager Interview (Positive Experience)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Uline.
Interview Details – Initial phone, online tests/screen, phone interview, face to face interview and that is as far I got. Very pleasant and professional encounter although I would have liked better feedback on what they felt I was lacking or could improve on.
Interview Question – Why do you wish to leave your current job? Answer Question
Director of Training Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Uline in April 2014.
Interview Details – Communication from the HR team was excellent. I was kept informed of the process and next steps to expect. Interview process was difficult and challenging. Since I needed to do the panel interview remotely, the HR team had everything set up for me.
Interview Question – Almost ALL of the questions were focused on the process of training that I created, not so much on the content, that was challenging. Answer Question
Finance Internship Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Uline
Interview Details – Form what I heard, this company is very nit picky with the way you talk during interviews. I believe I did pretty well, however the interviewer seemed to show absolutely no interest in being there and did not know the answers to any questions I asked at the end of the interview.
Interview Question – They were pretty generic questions Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Warehouse Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Uline in March 2014.
Interview Details – Invited for exploratory interview. Fairly basic questions about past work experience and work style. I felt the interview went very well, however its been two weeks and no contact. I have emailed for updates, but not so much as a reply that they have received my questions.
Interview Question – Asked about type of jobs I'm applying for - trying to be fit into some job they had open. It was very excited about possibly being considered. Now I am just not sure what to think. Answer Question
Customer Service Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Uline.
Interview Details – Completed application online. Got a call for an interview 4 days later however my interview was scheduled until a week after that. Interview was at their corporate office in Buford. You're given 2 easy assessments (basically to test your number recognition) before the initial one-on-one interview. 2 other people were there to be interviewed as well.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5 years? In what company position? Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Global Marketing Associate Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Uline.
Interview Details – Never before have I had such an odd experience! While the personality and writing tests are strange to begin with, the numbers tests that were taken prior to the interview where beyond strange! Not sure what they will gain in terms of my marketing qualifications from that! Apparently I must have failed the personality tests since the interviewers couldn't be less interested in what I had to say. I think I clearly had too much personality for this place. I asked the interviewer more questions than he asked me and just about every answer was "Good idea but our XXX doesn't like that" or " XXX doesn't want to do that". The entire experience was a waste of time as I was clearly not fitting their robot mold!
I found out through a very impersonal email that I did not get the job about 10 days after the interview. The least they could do is personalize it after candidates take the time to come in. But since they appear to interview by the truckload, they probably do not have the time.
Interview Question – Most unexpected question was regarding the dress code- How did I feel about their antiquated formal dress code policy? If a woman wears a suit- the jacket and pants must match, the shirt must be tucked in and the jacket buttoned! And the bonus is if you wear a dress, you don't have to wear panty hose from May - September. I think the military may be less strict! Answer Question
Customer Service Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Uline in April 2014.
Interview Details – Was contacted by phone and asked to come in for an interview. Had to complete a paper application and released for background check prior to interview and bring with. Went into a room with 10 other applicants where we were given 2 assessment tests on number association. Then called for a very brief one on one interview before being asked to take 2 more assessments for spelling and typing. Go for 2nd one on one interview and asked if I would be willing to stick around and listen in on some calls in their call center. At this point we had been quelled down from 10 to 2 people. 3rd interview after call center totaling almost 3 1/2 hours there.
Interview Question – There were no difficult or traditional interview questions. All three people I met with spent more time explaining the training process and how I'd have to work 12-16 months in the customer service department before moving into management. Almost no questions regarding experience, background, or why I felt I could be a good fit. Seemed more like an exercise for their HR Dept. Than anything else. 1st person I interviewed with was just roasting through that department for his training. Answer Question
Manager Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Uline
Interview Details – Lots of pre-interview work to fill out and it was time consuming but if you want to work for them than you need to jump through their hoops and comply. There were also 2 short tests the day of the interview that were necessary prior to meeting with the interviewer. If they are going to weed people out through this pre-interview process than I would have expected at least an offer or a reason why no offer was extended. The job is still posted and was posted for some time before I applied. How badly do they really want to fill this position?
Interview Question – Nothing really difficult or unexpected Answer Question
Programmer Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Uline in February 2014.
Interview Details – The interview process was kind of condiscending, you are asked questions out of a book, that had no relevance to actually writing code or solving a problem. Like I need to memorize book details, when I can just google it and get an answer in 30 secoinds. The interview was an all day process meet with a total of about 8 people. I had to interview through lunch, although we got to eat. I meet with three different managers and I asked all three of them the same question and got three different answers. Which means there is no communication among leadership. The pre-testing of sales skills did not make sense to me since I was not applying for sales. The environment is highly micromanaged and if you don't like it I got the sense you either quit or deal with it, it will never change. Work attire for a computer progroammer is suit and tie, uhh. Guess microsoft and goggle's laid back attire and relaxed approach are all wrong. It was a blessing in disguise I did not get an offer
Interview Question – Questions that were out of a book Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Environemnt was terrible and to restrictive
Customer Service Management Trainee Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Uline in March 2014.
Interview Details – I applied via Monster, sending in just a resume. Uline called the next day requesting an interview. I thought that was strange that they called so quick, but I had a lot of good, relevant experience and I thought it just might offer a good opportunity. I felt I had a lot to offer them, plus, they were willing to interview me in my time frame, since I needed a 2 week delay, -as I had a vacation coming up and was leaving the state when they called. Anyway, they never told me about any tests that I would have to fill out, when I was coming in to interview. I wish I had known about Glass Door, prior to the interview! When I got to the office, I was ushered into a conference room, with about 15 other candidates. That was a surprise. Cattle call! All with varying years of experience and age. Since I had to wait along with the others, I thought I would make small talk and ask people what they knew about the company. That was one of the more positive aspects of the trip. A Human Resource representative came in to the room, and then told us that we all were going to be tested. There were 2 tests. One for detecting similar and unsimilar pairs of numbers, and the other one to detect patterns of numbers. They were "wonderlic" tests, so apparently this was their way to screen out great numbers of candidates in the quickest way possible. These test results were judged on speed and accuracy. After the tests, we were brought individually to a separate room to speak with a HR intern along with a senior HR person. We had to answer a number of questions, and I had the feeling that it was a learning experience for the intern, as opposed to a "real" interview. I left there wondering why I had bothered to apply in the first place, as it didn't seem that my interview was a real interview, and that any of the valid and applicable experience that I had acquired/offered, even mattered. I figured, that I must not have had good enough test results. I probably went slower on the test (double checking my work) because my priority was accuracy. To those who wish to apply, I would recommend focus on speed! I vowed to never again apply here. This was a waste of my time, and my gas. No more jumping through hoops for the big company down the street. Just because they are big doesn't mean that they are better...........
Interview Question – Run of the mill interview questions, as they have a number of them to drill down before the next candidate walks in. Answer Question
