    I have been working at Uline full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, good people, good experience. Invest in employee growth and lots of hands-on training.

    Cons

    Lack of promotion and upward mobility. Lots of tracking/micro-managing and no trust in their employees. Lots of questioning and monitoring, employees here are paid to babysit. Lack of work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Let us do our job and stop checking up on every single thing we do. Most sales reps do not have babysitters calling their customers to verify their meetings. Put some faith in your employees- you hire them for a reason.

    I have been working at Uline full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Benefits are really good (401K, health, PTO, tuition reimbursement and Profit sharing/performance bonuses $$$$).
    - This is a company that really wants you to succeed. You're not there just to work and go home for the most part. They really care about your career path and will guide you on every step of the way to help you get there.
    - Great pay.
    - Great co-workers.

    Definitely a company that I can see myself staying at for at least 5 more years.

    Cons

    - Having to wear a shirt and tie to work. Honestly, it's not really much of a con, but I can't think of one for this company.

    Advice to Management

    N/A.
