I have been working at Uline

Pros

When I was at Uline, I had a great manager. The IT Department was run professionally and everyone was proud of their work. Lifelong friendships were also made at Uline

Cons

The owners ran the place as their little kingdom and treated most everyone as servants. Employees were fearful of running into the owners during the day because you never knew what their mood was. If your tie (yes even in these days, ties were mandatory) was not tied to their satisfaction, you might be fired on the spot.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Back off the draconian methods of management and let those you hired to manage do their jobs without having you stand on their shoulders.

    I have been working at Uline

    Pros

    Flexible hours are a plus, pay is very competitive, building are kept in pristine condition. Management goes above and beyond other local companies to keep us informed

    Cons

    Very biased towards minorities. You won't see very many company wide. The culture is keep your head down do your job and go home. Don't ask questions about things that don't concern you. Limited information is becoming more limited. Not to many people in the "know"

    I have been working at Uline full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Sparkling clean building, good team work from co workers, fairly decent pay and benefits. 16 personal days off per year.

    Cons

    Micro management style; must have learned management from Kim Jong Il. A number of staff referred to upper management as "Dear Leaders."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micro management does not work. You kill peoples spirit this way. Me thinks it is a cruel streak within you.
