I have been working at United Stationers full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Tries to do the right thing by it's employees if you are in the right group.

Cons

Company is a little dysfunctional and does not understand shipping/receiving and customer service

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out what the customer wants/expects and make it happen. Policies are written to protect internal processes first and not satisfy the customer.

    I have been working at United Stationers full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    co workers are awesome ...vacations and bonuses when they feel like giving the to you. if you make the simplest error they take your bonus..when management errors it is forgotten,

    Cons

    transportation management has no clue. zero years experience driving constantly pushing safety meetings on a team over drivers with 20+ years experience and an impeccable safety record.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to people who have real life experience.
