    Pros

    Co-workers very friendly, Some Sr. mgmt. will mentor you, flexibility in salaried positions. Ability to learn new things

    Cons

    No security, the ones that do not contribute to the good of the company are rewarded and the ones that made the company money are let go. Communication is a joke and changes are made to procedures without regard to any input to the SME.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize your internal talent and stop exhausting your good people and demand performance from those not producing. Get over the good ole boy handshake and allow the women with the talent to shine

    Pros

    Fair compensation package, robust capacity to satisfy customers and an industry leader.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, weak culture and non-existent communications.

    Advice to Management

    Look to your associates for ideas and direction. Look to your customers for needs and expectations. Look to your competition to see where they are finding success. An industry leader only remains an industry leader when they do these things.

    Pros

    easy work, low stress, work stays at work, easily work around your schedule work at own pace

    Cons

    managers are incompetent, they lack the necessary skills to run multiple employees. They treat their employees like their friends so their favorites get what they want while other workers get pushed around made to do all the grit work. There is no advancement in the company so you will do the same thing day in and day out so get used to the routine because it doesn't change. The people they hire act like children and get away with it, with continuous bickering or yelling.

    Advice to Management

    Get your work place together, Had a horrible experience working there. If it was anything other than a warehouse HR would have a field day with the kind of stuff you guys pull there

    Pros

    You get free janitorial samples. It once was a family oriented company. People were nice, you don't have a manager looking over your shoulder.

    Cons

    Yearly raises are a joke. Upper management has no idea what they're doing. Blind leading the blind. No one knows how the bonus structure works.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat employees as if they're expendable. Better communication would be ideal.

    Pros

    driving the forklifts instead of manual pallet jacks. Getting paid weekly. The hours are not to bad. Unless they want you to come in early like 2 am.

    Cons

    This company does not pay very well. I mean 11 bucks an hour is really not much when you think about it. And the management is very stern. You really don't get any chances here. And it seems we are always running behind. So there's lot's of overtime. And we never seem to have enough people.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more understanding with the associates. I mean everybody screws up once in a while.

    Division of United Stationers. Soon to be merging systems in July 2015. Many of the people there were very nice.

    Cons

    Insecure manager. Fearful of being downsized? Not get along with opposite gender? I was there to help!! but was talked to like a 2nd grader.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with the next reorg this year!
