This company is an awesome place to work. The people truly do care about one another and it's my family away from home. There is constant support, trainings, and opportunities for advancement. They put you through the ringer when getting hired, but I believe that they do it to make sure they find the best people for the job.

The absolute worse company I’ve worked for. To start when it snowed 3 feet we were expected to still come in and when we didn’t the mandated another day on your day off and if you didn’t come in to work then it counted as 2 call offs. Your allowed 8 or your fired. HR is not there for employees and will belittle you and degrade you. No family time at all. And your told you get 8 weeks of training. That’s a joke. You get told what to do and you better hit your numbers with in a couple weeks

If you need money its a great place to work if you're looking for work and personal life balance its not the place for you. You have to cover your tattoos weither you're a grunt shipper or a head hancho. No hats so no head tattoos.
Pros
Money, free lunches/raffles
Cons
Long hours, no tattoos unrealistic no errors rules

I only work at Uline for the pay but WOW. They micromanage you and hover you like crazy. If you do just a SMALL thing that doesn't meet their insane and unrealistic expectations, they reprimand you and demand you do it as they watch you over your shoulder. Different trainers have different standards so it's confusing. Do you want it done like this or like THIS? You only get 1 hour lunch and no other breaks. So expect to work for 3.5 hours, then have your lunch break, and then you'll work for 6-7 hours STRAIGHT. it's ridiculous. Horrible work/life balance. You're often asked to come in an hour early and leave 1-2 hours late. The work itself is mindlessly boring. If you want money, come work here. If you want to be treated like an adult and keep your sanity don't come here.
Pros
Money, bonuses
Cons
Micromanagement, terrible work/life balance

Please do yourself a favor and don’t bother with this place. You can’t trust management or HR, and they will fire you right before your 90 days so they don’t have to pay you PTO or other benefits. They overwork you all day and everyday they can. They say it’s getting better but it won’t. Don’t trust anything they say. Terrible place to work.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Hours, management

2nd shift hours are hard to deal with as a supervisor, 630pm-4am minimum. Lots of volume and overtime currently great for the growth of the business but too picky on new hires and lack of caring moving people from 2nd shift to 1st shift after many years of service.

Spent a short time here, figured out why they are always looking for people. Extreme micromanagement and strict rules, they give good benefits and pay for you to deal with a depressing environment.
Pros

Weird rules, strict breaks, depressing place

The first 4 weeks of training were fun and made you feel excited to start working for Uline. However, once you are on your own, management expects you to be perfect. It makes you start feeling uncomfortable because you’re constantly thinking your work has to be on point and perfect. They are constantly watching you and it feels like they knick pick everything you do or say. Only good thing about that company was the benefits. Don’t apply here if you don’t like this type of work environment.

If you value work/life balance and a friendly work environment, this is not the place for you. No flexibility, heavy micromanagement and overall toxic work environment.

ProsThe end of year bonuses are great. 100% vested 401K. The work is consistent which allows an employee to become proficient over time. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the other employees. Frequently provided lunch and various gift cards. ConsMajority of advancement opportunities are sourced from outside the company. Do not take this job with the expectation of being promoted from within. Outside recruits are more moldable, which is why most of the managers are fresh out of college and are generally inexperienced in the workforce. Mandatory overtime. Micro management.
Pros
Bonuses, simple job, well maintained facilities, weekends off
Cons
No advancement opportunities, favoritism, poor leadership, micromanagement

The pay is a major plus at this company. The micromanaging is one of the things no one there has ever been able to get use to. Also it’s very hard to move up within this company. They push inter company promotions, but when it comes down to it no matter your experience and drive they already have a preconceived notion of what they are looking for to promote and if you don’t fit that mold then they will find ever excuse not to promote you. They give you pointers and when you make the changes they still won’t.
Pros
Bonuses & Pay
Cons
Monitored breaks, hard to take vacation

After 2 months of working here, I’ve gotten so much warehouse experience already. The process is clear cut, management will make their expectations clear, and upper management is very supportive to new employees getting the hang of the day to day duties. The training process is second to none, as they take their time, making sure you are 100% comfortable on the equipment that you’re learning. Daily goals are extremely achievable and they keep track of your stats so you can gauge if you need to perform better. The pay is the highest for an entry level job that I’ve seen since job hunting last year. The work you do for the amount they pay you (not even mentioning yearly bonuses, raises, COVID premiums, ect) is too good to be true.... but it is true! I can see myself being here a long time, with plenty of room for advancement. If you need a change of scenery, I would definitely consider joining the team, as this job was life changing for me in a positive way.
Pros
Pay, bonuses, clean and safe work environment. Management is very supportive.
Cons
Mandatory 1-2 hour overtime every night due to growing customer demand

Mandatory overtime, daily (multiple hours for some shifts)Managers are hired from outside so have no idea how hard subordinates work/ how to do the grunt workNepotism is HUGEHR is there to protect the company, not you.They say safety is a priority, but are okay with unsafe practices if it makes you faster at the jobHome life balance is a joke, not the worst I've ever had, but they don't care about it as advertised.Owners can change things on a whim, but won't ever take employee suggestions
Pros
Pay is decent, gym, EOY bonus
Cons
Management, no personal growth, can term you for anything

A Special kind of crazy. Don't fight it, just go along with it.Consideration of employees. MOve the culture into the 21sty century and out of the 1950's Mad Men scenarioProfessionalism, treating all employees the same instead of having clicks. Managers should not be involved in clicks in a company.The leadership is incapable of making fast decisions because of family-centric management and their values.
