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.

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

Advice to Management

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