Shift Manager (Former Employee), Indianapolis, IN – February 26, 2013
Pros: laptop, cell phone, company credit card, total trust of upper management
Cons: 2nd shift and i never saw my family
I ran the 2nd shift operation and I had almost zero supervision and had the total trust of the plant manager. My co-workers were great and I learned here that the only way to be successful in management and life is through other people. The associates do the job and it's important to listen to what thier ideas are, they know the job better than management. – more... I helped open two different distribution centers and traveled the country helping train other managers. – less
The people, salary, benefits and appreciation of job well done.
Item Content and Pricing Manager (Former Employee), Deerfield, IL – January 28, 2013
Pros: the people are great.
Cons: advancement after the first 7 years.
The people at United Stationers are great to work with. Management gets people involved. Pay is competitive as are benefits. Makes sure that it's not all work. The most enjoyable part of working at United Stationers being able to be involved in many different things.
Distribution Associate 2 (Current Employee), ORS Nasco - Visalia – December 15, 2012
Pros: good start off pay if you have experience.
Cons: breaks and lunches are too early. management is terrible. raises are terrible.
A tyical day is ok at best if management does not bother you. The GOM does not have high respect, proper professionalism, stubborn, does not listen to employees, and never shows gratitude towards his employees. The starting off pay is decent if you have enough experience. The raises given here in the Visalia branch are next to nothing, only 25 cents – more... a year if your lucky. A good place to work at if you are going to school on the weekend or something. other than that, its not that great to be employeed at simply due to the management team. – less
Great place to work with a lot of awsome people and the day goes by fast because you get into the flow and forget about what time it is.
Warehousing Specialist - Full time (Former Employee), Walker, MI – November 15, 2012
Pros: we were given a lot of vacation time, around four weeks or moe by the time i left the company.
Cons: lifting the furniture and heavy paper.
A typical day would consist of unloading te returns truck, detailing products in the return area, detailing the ups boxes that come in after lunch, moving the skids that are finished so the bulk and shelf stockers can put them away. I learned to work very well in a team environment and speaking up when the company was in need of help. I came up with – more... some ideas and brought them to my managers attention because they were talking about permanetly laying off a few people. One of the ideas I had the company went ahead and did it. I said they shouldn't give raises to anyone this year to any of the 36 warehouses which would allow them t have more revenue to wor with. It worked out great even though I'm sure some people didn't care for the idea of not getting a raise, at least nobody lost their job. I loved all my co-workers and miss working there because of them too. The hardest part of the job was haing to lif the really heavy furniture that weighed around 2-300lbs maybe more sometimes. I enjoyed the people te most. – less
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee), Lithia Springs, Ga – October 2, 2012
Pros: benefits, 16 days vacation, daily workout
Cons: doing overtime on some fridays
You wouldn't even realize you have worked your 8 hour shift. Continuous, non backbreaking work that passes the time so quick. Manager and employee relationship is very good. Great company to work for and the benefits are awesome.
