I worked at Uline

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.

    Pros

    compensation
    benefits
    structure
    401k
    retirement funds
    training
    holiday events
    the training instructors are fantastic people
    the lower level employees are all some what young

    Cons

    micro-managed into dust
    surveillance
    unhealthy environment
    contradictory messages from management
    insecurity amongst mid-level managers
    they will fire you for updating your resume
    secrecy
    you must endure 90 days of customer service phone-strapped-to-temple cubicle work
    hypocrisy of "family" message
    completely objective and robotic in every faucet of judgement
    employee cliques
    15 minutes of bathroom usage given....per day and citations if exceeded

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend not grinding your employees into a fine powder with micro-management and monitoring their every breath. The 90 day customer service routine is a mental warfare that would drive anybody away from any company.

    I have been working at Uline

    Pros

    Growing company, great job security and incentives. The people are great too, I met some great friends here. The owners really invest in the employees and company so it continues to grow

    Cons

    Pay is a bit lower than it could be but again, great job security. It can be a "what have you done for me lately" environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share all the audits with the workers, thats the only way they can get better. Sometimes audits are done but not shared with the person being audited.
