    I have been working at Uline full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I just celebrated my 5 year anniversary at Uline, and I couldn't be happier. I love the culture of the company. Everyone works hard and works well together. I am looking forward to the next 25!

    Cons

    The only con is that upper management is very involved in all decisions, which sometimes limits opportunities to take responsibility for your department.

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

    Pros

    Uline is a passionate, fast paced company filled with people who have a desire to succeed. At Uline you are part of the team! Over the course of my 10 years here, I’ve advanced my career through the support and encouragement of management. Many companies claim to promote from within and often fall short. Uline takes a vested interest in your development and with continued double digit growth, there are endless opportunities available. Uline is a family-owned company you can be proud to work for. You’re more than just a number, and it reflects in the numerous benefits offered.

    Cons

    With concentration given to hiring the best, it can be tough to get hired.

    I have been working at Uline full-time

    Pros

    Great people create a fun, young environment. Strong company growth means job security. Strong exposure to upper management.

    Cons

    Decision making is slow. Few opportunities to reach upper management positions. Projects can be derailed based on opinions, not based on data

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on growth from within instead of bringing someone into an upper management position. Continue to develop career paths.

    I worked at Uline full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part about working for Uline was hands down the warehouse environment and friendly peer to peer morale.

    Very well lit
    Clean beyond imagination
    Equipment cleaned regularly
    Very easy to build relationships with staff above and below.
    Company pays for your uniform. A win in my opinion some thought differently

    Being a part of a growing business was a plus. There are always downsides to rapid growth but the branches are starting to mature and keep a steady growth pattern that is good for morale and keeping capital improvement going forward.

    Cons

    Unfriendly work hours due to industry type and cut times
    Can get stuck in the same roles/responsibility for 3+ years without any guidance on next steps.
    Very top down management style
    Training period for managers can be not value added and unnecessarily lengthy.
    Due to system constraints your quantity of emails can be very numerous.
    Process improvement is not a priority
