    Pros

    Well regarded company, good pay. Managers I worked for were great. It's obvious that employees are treated well.

    Cons

    I personally wasn't a huge fan of the dress code. "The Uline Way" is very prevalent

    I worked at Uline full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    good people to work with for the most part everyone really nice. really good bonus at the end of the year . good pay

    Cons

    most of the employees are very unhappy with schedule and lack of information given to employees when it comes down to overtime . very strict over silly things like how your hair is done. all they care about is production and a lot of favoritism towards employees if your aren't friends with supervisors outside of work then you will be at the bottom when it comes to days off and things like that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    tear people fair and listen to employees they know best about themselves

    I have been working at Uline for more than 5 years

    Pros

    People are helpful and are willing to help you out. Company is growing rapidly and no end in sight.

    Cons

    Executives make the decisions. Make sure you know who not to rub the wrong way. Stringent on how many hours an employee must average a week. Micro management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let managers manage. Need to put more trust in managers. Let work show for the hours instead of how many hours you need to work to show you are putting in hours to work.

    I worked at Uline full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They offer a nice wage.

    Cons

    Everything Else. I felt as if I got in my car and drove to 1965. No union but everything is set up like they have a union. They even set your work and break schedule based on who has the most seniority. They use the don't say anything to the new guy until after he makes a mistake training system. Women and minorities need not apply. Very few minorities..Even less women. Wasn't for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's 2014 not 1965.

    I worked at Uline as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great place to work if you want to pursue sales. Very hands on internship. Get to act as a full time sales rep. Great pay for an internship, car allowance, and fun work events with other coworkers. Great management. Really want you to succeed and willing to help you out in any situation.

    Cons

    The dress code is fairly strict, but they just want to maintain professionalism. Wish I had had more training time. Other than that, great place to work!
