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.

    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.

    Former Employee - Warehouse Lead Management Trainee in Waukegan, IL

    Pros

    Decent pay. Not great by any means but slightly above average. 401k matching right on par again not above average.

    Cons

    I know everyone else has already said this but there is a reason why, MICRO management to a whole new level. You have NO freedom at all. All employees must punch in and out for shifts and lunch breaks, this includes white collar jobs. You are given zero yes thats right zero sick days a year. You are given 16 paid days off a year which includes vacation, personal etcc.... If you take a sick day you must count against your vacation and are looked down upon by management. Warehouse management can be verbally abusive and swear at employees often. Overall, if you have a choice and it comes down to money take the lower paying job. You will be thankful down the road.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont be so scared of the owners.
