I worked at Uline full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits- the company invested in great health coverage for employees as well as a great 401k match. Fairly flexible schedules were offered as well as a good work/life balance. Employees never have to take work home.

Cons

Micromanagement gone wild. Employees often felt overworked and unappreciated. Many accomplishments went unnoticed, but even the slightest of mistakes was analyzed under a microscope and scarred your performance statistics. Not a lot of room for advancement.

Advice to Management

Have more confidence in your employees and stop micromanaging. Also, spend more time rewarding good performance instead of punishing the slightest of errors.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    When I was at Uline, I had a great manager. The IT Department was run professionally and everyone was proud of their work. Lifelong friendships were also made at Uline

    Cons

    The owners ran the place as their little kingdom and treated most everyone as servants. Employees were fearful of running into the owners during the day because you never knew what their mood was. If your tie (yes even in these days, ties were mandatory) was not tied to their satisfaction, you might be fired on the spot.

    Advice to Management

    Back off the draconian methods of management and let those you hired to manage do their jobs without having you stand on their shoulders.

    Pros

    Flexible hours are a plus, pay is very competitive, building are kept in pristine condition. Management goes above and beyond other local companies to keep us informed

    Cons

    Very biased towards minorities. You won't see very many company wide. The culture is keep your head down do your job and go home. Don't ask questions about things that don't concern you. Limited information is becoming more limited. Not to many people in the "know"
