In 1980, after recognizing a local need for a shipping supply distributor, Liz and Dick Uihlein started Uline from their basement. Their first product was the H-101 carton sizer (still offered today). It sold far beyond their expectations and encouraged the Uihleins to add more ... Read more

    I have been working at Uline full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Uline Hudson branch is a strong team! Great working relationships between each department. Great friendships in & out of work. This branch is the perfect spring board for a person looking for adventure. Uline will internally transfer employees in good standing to any one of our US locations. As well, we prefer to promote from within whenever possible. Customer Service, the Warehouse, and Sales departments offer strong Uline training for long term success; whether staying in that division or looking for other experiences in other areas of the company.

    The fact Uline offers a generous benefits package inclusive of 401K matching dollar for dollar up to 5%, medical, dental & vision coverage, life Ins, paid PTO, annual bonuses for ALL employees, annual wage increases, tuition reimbursement up to $5000 annually for all employees, and numerous employee appreciation events, annually is very appealing. This is not seen in many organizations!

    Cons

    Uline has a strong internal culture that does not appeal to everyone. We have high standards, expect honest hard work from all employees, and operate a no-nonsense environment. Persons who struggle with open communication, and transparent discussion when opportunity for improvement arises, will not do well.

    Being in a branch often frustrates those wanting advancement opportunities only housed in our corporate offices ( Pleasant Prairie. WI), and not being able / willing to transfer. It is hard seeing great staff leave for local opportunities not available in this branch.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Uline (Kenosha, WI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Thorough but understandable. Uline hires the best talent and people who want to win. They are looking for people who will make a contribution and help achieve the company's goals. People who are bright, hard-working and eager to build their career will do just fine at Uline. Don't be intimidated by the screening process. Prove that you have what it takes and you won't be sorry.
