    I have been working at Universal Logistics Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Managers and co-workers are willing to help and answer questions
    -No micro-managing. I am trusted with my own workload
    -Nice corporate office
    -Promotions and raises seem to be based on performance, instead of just time with the company
    -The days go by fast
    -Weekly pay on Fridays

    Cons

    -No direct deposit
    -Insurance can be expensive

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be there to help and answer questions. It's nice working for a company where Managers are not "above" helping and getting to know their employees.

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

    Pros

    flexible schedule and provided support as SME and the ability to help others.

    Cons

    The company's lack of moral and ethical purpose for being; coupled with constant internal divide and inability to listen to each other or subject matter experts, to enhance and even create success.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people from the ground up and leave your offices occasionally so you will understand what is really happening in your company. You have a tremendous opportunity to be number 1 but only if you allow everyone in the company to include the owners to now what is really going on and provide honest feedback on how to resolve the issues.

    Pros

    The managers included the workers in brainstorming to fix some problems that arose and then thanked the workers for their ideas. Also, the company training period was very intensive but they worked with each individual as well. Enjoy that the staff treats you with respect and demands safe workplace.

    Cons

    I receive my pay by check.

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy my supervisors and leadership cares about the people? Keep it up

    Appreciate the drivers more, they are the ones that move the company, without truck drivers there wouldn't be no business. Compensate the drivers instead of stealing from them.

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

    Pros

    The pay was decent enough. Made a couple new friends to work with there. Daily hours were pretty good. Not too much good to say.

    Cons

    The leadership lacked knowledge of how to get the job done. Way too much overtime! Too much favoritism and letting them do nothing!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue on how to manage a warehouse and how to talk to your employees without cussing. Very unprofessional!!

    Pros

    recruiting department has great leadership. They are very flexible but hard working and as long as you work hard you will get a lot of leniency. This is a great department to work for within Universal

    Cons

    no direct deposit. This is an ongoing joke for all employees within Universal but it is something they really need to change. `

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work. The management is amazing within recruiting and any employee should feel comfortable talking about anything with these managers. they are truly amazing people

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

    Pros

    -Weekly Check
    -Decent pay
    -Glassdoor says I need to put in more words to submit this, so here we are.

    Cons

    - Horrible benefits
    - Very few PTO days
    - Horrific Micromanagement
    - Obvious favoritism
    - No direct deposit
    - Little to no training

    I worked for Universal for nearly two years. Management would ignore any concerns employees posed. Several times I ended up doing another departments job and when I asked for management to correct the situation I was told that it wouldn't matter either way. Many of my questions were met with "it's just how this place works". Universal has such a high turnover rate because employees who've been there 5+ years sit back with little to no work to do while the newer employees are thrown to the wolves with little - or in most cases, no training at all. Then stressed out to the point where they quit all together. I trained the majority of new employees in my department because no one else would- and I wasn't even a manager. If you like going home stressed day after day because other departments refuse to do anything for you while you drown in projects- this is the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.
