    Pros

    Awesome benefits, well informed employees, company meetings to inform company's direction and training is accurate to jobs, advancement opportunities within the company are very much attainable

    Hours not consistent due to the fact that they ship around the start of school and then hours slow down significantly once that period has ended

    Advice to Management

    Not much in advice, they cover all their bases, cross the "T's" and dot the "I's"

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

    Pros

    Work was monotonous but ok, could get into a flow and make the time pass quicker. Some hardworking folk there, some lazy.

    Cons

    Upper management was a good ol'boys club. They weren't concerned about efficiency or improvement, just meeting standards and making time to smoke cigars together outside.

    High employee turnover. Hard work not rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    When people offer methods of improvement that is a good thing to pay attention to.
