    I have been working at Uline full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Compensation is well above market value for positions -Variety of entry level positions available -Well established company -Extremely structured, very in-depth training program

    Cons

    -Long work hours, expect to average 1 - 3 hours of overtime every day (most especially during their 4th quarter) -Company culture is very unique, definitely not for everyone -Micromanagement is the core of everything there, new ideas or innovation to current processes are heavily discouraged -High turnover, constantly hiring/terminating staff (always understaffed)

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees and give them the freedom to exercise their skills that you hired them for. Sometimes just because a candidate fits the "culture" doesn't necessarily mean they're right for the role.

    I worked at Uline full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great competitive salary benefits and RSP and yearly bonuses.

    Cons

    I would give it 0 stars if that was an option... If I could describe Uline in one word, the word 'Cult' comes to mind instantly. THERE WAY OR NO WAY!!! Ran by a bunch of rejects that probably settled with the fact that they'll be nothing more but Warehouse know-it-alls. Micro managed to the most deadliest degrees... Some examples are : how to "properly" highlight, tucking in your sweater, how to "properly" bend over...

    Advice to Management

    1) LIGHTEN UP 2) Stop being fake 3) Give the respect to your employees, that you expect to get in return 4) Stop the favouritism (cause its obvious) 5) Maybe the managers should get some training every now and then, because their approach is seriously outdated.. IN EVERY WAY.

    decent pay, great bonus, some nice people

    this company is micro managed to the maximum.

    Advice to Management

    be honest and fair to your employees, praise as much as you critique employees morale is low because workers don't feel important

    I have been working at Uline full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive salary, 2 dollar premium for night shifts, benefits, profit sharing, lot's of OT. Cons - only for those who's not ready for organised job, and OT. This is NOTfor slackers. Everybody has production for the day (per/hour). And to me this is great if you are a hard-worker as me. The expectation is to get the job done as Uline promises same dame shipping. To me this is advantage. This is the best job around warehouses....

    Cons

    No cons for me as far as I see it. For some people is OT.
