    Pros

    Great way to get experience in the automotive industry. Company is expanding at a promosing rate. Jobs are fairly easy. Mostly everyone there is pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Absolutely no work/life balance. Need more flexability with scheduling, the options are available but Universal will not act on it. Union, Union, Union is very disappointing. Employees are drunk and drinking while on the job on a everyday basis and also smoking marijuana. But, the Union keeps these guys employed.

    I worked at Universal Logistics Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Dedicated lanes and fairly consistent schedule.

    Cons

    Forced weekend work, worthless union, expected to work over or come in early with NO notice (....unless you 20 minutes notice), continued denial of EARNED vacation time, no management feedback with job-related questions, and MOST baffling of all: Paper Paychecks, the owner refused to enroll in Direct Deposit.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your drivers like human beings and perhaps they'll stick around, even if you offer NO benefits, even when asked about them 4 times.

    Pros

    Good for learning the functions of automotive industry.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance. 6 day work weeks but sometimes longer.

    Advice to Management

    Train and support your Supervisors. Scan and hire legit managers for the job not your friend. Hire some clerks for your HR so they will not be over worked. The Director and office managers need to talk to the supervisors on the floor to "KNOW" what is really going on, instead of assuming all 3 shifts are the same.

    Pros

    The sun will still rise and set

    Cons

    Unfortunately I am not a lottery winner so I have to work for a living

    Advice to Management

    Discharged equipment before shift start including lifts and scanners and iPad inventory system. I mean come on figure it out 123. Don't send payroll check shorted employees off into the blue to try to get their penny's compared to the magnitude of the company.

    I worked at Universal Logistics Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not a hard job, Good pay, some overtime during the week if your willing and management will allow it, you will work some saturday’s too.
    Some paid holidays after your 90 days.

    Cons

    Terrible health insurance, no 401k, no vacation time you only get 5 PTO (Personal Time Off) days after a year of working full time! Not enough equipment to supply employees!
    No communication from management to employees.
    You get paid weekly hard paper checks, no direct deposit and when you start working there you have to wait three weeks before you get your first weekly paycheck.
    They hold back three weeks!
    No direct deposit!

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees, get a better health insurance company that’s more affordable, get a 401k company so employees can save for retirement. Get direct deposit!!!
    Make sure you have enough equipment for all employees to work with.
