    Pros

    Constant growth and expansion into new business lines through acquisition.
    Business changes keep job interesting and fresh.
    Good benefits
    Activities of United Foundation are fun, and offer chance to use your time, talents and treasures to support charitable causes..

    Cons

    Finance under resourced for special project work that is expected to be completed in addition to regular role.
    Many lateral moves in finance, but very difficult to move up to higher level role
    Low margin business means that costs are tightly controlled.

    Advice to Management

    Provide adequate resources to Finance area for special projects. People want to do a good job and need to make difficult choices between work and family life. Continue to invest in higher margin businesses.

    Pros

    The coworkers were very friendly and the managers were very hands on, If needed they jumped in to help on the line.

    Cons

    A 8 hour day is not the norm more like 10 or sometimes 11 hours in a shift.

    Pros

    Great Monday through Friday schedule. It was great not working weekends ever. It was nice to "turn off the job" the moment I walked out each night. I made many great friends.

    Cons

    This could be very monotonous work at times. Call center environment at its core. Not everyone in same position/title held to equal standards. Like any company, there were plenty of office politics, but this place seemed to have pockets where "who you know" was more important than how hard you worked.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid cursing/vulgarity during team meetings (may not apply to all teams, just the one I was on).

    I have been working at United Stationers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Grading of the phone calls/emails are based on the customer experience and not hitting exact checklists to sound like a drone or computer when going over problems.

    Cons

    Training only prepares you how to use the systems and not the situations you'll encounter on the actual job. While it's stressful at first, my team helps ease this until your comfortable (which could last several months).

    Advice to Management

    Please upgrade you're computer network and systems. Development of the new single website for our customers and your employees to use for everything is still much slower than the one we use that was built over 7 years ago. Be a leader in technology and focus on improving the customer experience by upgrading your customer service programs we use.
