A company that supported the team and the community
Web Developer (Former Employee) – Englewood, CO – December 16, 2016
The company made steps to help the community in various ways, like providing school supplies to several elementary schools in the area. It also wanted to make a work environment that provided some enjoyment when at the work place. But the management team did not follow an uplifting style and at time could become extremely stressful. In the final days the focus of the product became lost and I believe the client base has moved on.
Distribution Worker I (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – December 29, 2016
I worked at the United Stationers Orlando Facility for almost 6 years and it was a waste! I kept getting passed over for promotions even though I was one of the top level performers and more than qualified. The department I worked in there was alot of backstabbing and favoritism for those who "sucked up", but slacked off. It was sickening and I had enough. I left in early 2014. I work for myself now. If you think anything of yourself, don't work for this company!
I quickly understood that working with human resource and they are a valuable asset.Learning how important coaching and counseling are the success of team building. Though unpleasant, there is a constructive way to disciplining employees and still keep a person engaged. The importance of communicating job expectation and planning are vital. I was always monitoring, appraising, and reviewing job contributions. Enforcing policies and procedures are a priority.
I encouraged my team to recommend ideas for strategic planning and finding ways to get tasks completed quicker without forgoing quality.

Stock Picker/Order Picker (Current Employee) – Woburn, MA – October 23, 2016
There are several departments with multiple shifts each day. The company offers tuition reimbursement after one year, grade based. Management works with the employees to adjust schedules if needed for a short time.
Inventory Control Specialist (Current Employee) – City of Industry, CA – October 8, 2016
This is a great place to work with great people. The only downfall is the lack of promotions available. If you have been there several years you will max out in pay and will not get a raise. This can be difficult if you are raising a family and have been loyal to the company.
Order Filler (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – August 24, 2016
I was an order picker and this was via automated talkman. You had to do about 50 boxes during your shift with a 100 % completeness. My co-workers were good about teaching me how to get up to speed. The hardest part of the job was not forgetting anything and making sure it went in the right box. management was ok, we didn't see them much unless we had a meeting. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting everything done on time and not having to stay late.
4-5 hrs. MANDATORY OT every night, poor management w/little skills on how to resolve issues between employees, if you are white you are the minority and treated like one too, decent pay but could be higher considering all the work you put in. The union sucks and does not stick up for you in times of need. Run poorly overall, but not the worst place due to the salary and job security.
Distribution Associate (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – May 17, 2016
Fast paced environment, managers and supervisors expected for employees to keep the same rate the entire shift period. hardest part of the job was to be sent home early 1 hour after your shift because of over scheduling.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Suwanee, GA – April 16, 2016
I am seeking for better opportunity based on how hard that work. I do have family that depends on me based on the energy, motivation, and the drive I bring to the table.In another words; the jobs I have experience are non-communicative, and very unorganized facilities, Hardest part of the job is to get people on the same page as a team; to accomplish goals that we are trying to reach. Last but not lease, the most enjoyable part of the job; getting to know new people and learning more experience.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Oaks, PA – February 10, 2016

Marketing Specialist (Former Employee) – Deerfield, IL – January 26, 2016
There are good people at the company but also a lot of corporate politics. The co-workers are nice and helpful. Mid level management and upper management need training. They are not helpful and only think about how they can move up in the company.
Good co-workers, Lunch and Learns, Healthcare benefits
Difficult to move up in the company, Do not value their employees, Layoff's on annual basis
