I worked at United Stationers full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Round table and focus group discussions to improve business processes and communication.

Cons

Offsite management of local supervisors promoted bias treatment, low accountablity, and high tolerance for low morale.

Advice to Management

On site management of supervisors is a must. A supervisor training program should be implemented to ensure certain skill sets equal or exceed those they are leading.

    I worked at United Stationers full-time

    Pros

    job was close to home with good pay & good benefits. Most of management were caring individuals. A lot of opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    A lot of favoritism, advancement is sometimes, because of employee management friendship and not based on knowledge. Every five/six years they reshuffle and layoff top paid employees.
