UX Design Intern (Current Employee) – Pleasant Prairie, WI – August 13, 2018
I enjoyed my internship at Uline. I learned a lot and was able to see the ways that they invest in their interns. You can tell that many of the staff pride themselves for having worked at such a company. It's very top heavy culture and must dress in professional attire at all times. There are many "not usual" requirements and rules but many of the good can outweigh the unusual if you enjoy the work you do.
invest in their interns, possible FT offer afterwards, my mentor was awesome
top heavy culture and set in ways of doing certain things
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Ontario, CA – August 8, 2018
I am currently a freight stock picker. The job is great if you are able to keep to yourself and keep and smile on in front of management. The pay, for what the job entails, is very good. If you enjoy being able to keep interactions to a minimum and focus on your work, then it is a great job.
You are merely. Not your employee number, but your productivity and accuracy for that day. It does not matter if you are able to exceed numbers on a daily basis. If you have one bad day, or one error outside of your control, then that is all you become to your management. The old adage of "what have you done for me lately," is very apt here. Any sense of identity and individuality is thrown out of the window here. You must conform to their set of standards otherwise you are seen as a problem.
Lack of career advancement is non-existent, unless you assimilate. From my experience, you have to excel above and beyond all goals in place to be even considered. Only then THEY will place you where they like. If you request to learn other responsibilities, then it becomes a constant barrage of misleading or leading on. There were many empty promises made that lead to nowhere.
It is a good job if you are able to fit their mold, but disagree or speak your voice on any issue, you become a nuisance.
All that is required of you is to keep your head down and focus on the task at hand and you can excel here. It could be an excellent career if not for the management. Otherwise, it's just a decent job that brings home the paychecks.

There is nothing especial about Uline. Uline is owned and run by people with low morals. If all you need is money, then Uline is for you. They pay higher wages. There is virtually no advancement. Those few promotions are given to those that stay up late playing video games with management and go out drinking with them. Hard work is not valued at Uline. Don't bother going to their job fairs. They only hire one or two people at time. Management also makes fun of the people that show up to the job fairs. You would think that a billion dollar company would be more professional. Uline's biggest problem now can be summed up in one word, MICROMAGEMENT. If you like to use your brain, be treated as an adult and with respect, don't come to Uline. There is an epidemic of stress at Uline. Ask yourselves one question, "why is Uline always hiring? You will see the same job posting time and time again. Well that's because Uline can't keep employees. Why does a company that pays well be always hiring? Uline's job culture is not in tune with todays workforce. Unfortunately ignorance runs rampant at Uline.
Worked for the company for seven years out of the Coppell, TX Branch. Wanted to leave this place so bad that I was offered a service pay package to leave. I accepted the package so quickly and haven't looked back every since. Stressful atmosphere that is run almost like a military camp. This company doesn't even like for the men to have facial hair. Too many rules to abide by. Poor leadership, if you don t agree how things are being run, then you are considered a troubled employee.
Great company but can make many changes to be the best

Management micromanages every action that is done. If someone wants to go above and beyond, they are looked down upon since everything has to be approved by a manager. People complain if your not doing work, but some times no work is available.
General Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Braselton, GA – June 29, 2018
The job is demanding, but not difficult. Managers have trouble communicating with employees effectively. They make empty promises all of the time. Benefits are the best I've ever seen or had. I want to further my career through promotion, but the company has a small number of advancement opportunities. If you want a job that pays well and guarantees a 40-hour workweek, this is the place for you. If you want to work, learn, and hope for advancement, then look elsewhere.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Waukegan, IL 60085 – June 26, 2018
Very fast paced and hard working envroment. Pay and benefits are great but there seems to be no room for advancement or shift change. I have been here for almost 4 years, have earned employee of the week numerous times as well as employee of the month. I just wish they were consider promoting from within. We have lost so many good people because of this.
Pay, benefits, Pto
Advancement, able to change shifts when there is an opening
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Buford, GA – June 25, 2018
Hated it here, could not wait to leave and find something new! Over worked and too much micromanagement. The company has a knack for playing favorites when it comes to promotions and raises. It might be an ok job for someone with no advanced schooling, but if you have a degree and are looking for career advancement and somewhere to grow steer clear of this place.
Truck Loader (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – May 28, 2018
I was temporal there, which means my job was not going to be permanent. However, they did not give me enough time to find another job once my time was up. I work on a Monday and when I finished working they told me I was a good employee, never missed work, but they did not need any more temporal employees.
Horrible place to work. Literally everything you do and say is scrutinized.
SENIOR CUSTOMER SERVICE SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 25, 2018
Obviously their pay is what drives people there. Other than that, it's the most horrible stressful place for any HUMAN being to work out. You are treated like child and a robot. CEO/Liz is a narcissist with a self appointed god complex.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 25, 2018
You are expected to produce like a robot, people were being spoken to without any respect (not me just an observation) 10 hour shifts on your feet all day, work is relentless, very hot warehouse, a lot of gossip, very low rate of pay for the quantity of work I was doing, no room for advancement, not a career choice for anyone who has goals in life
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Kenosha, WI – May 20, 2018
every day was pretty much the same in the warehouse, either labeling, packaging. the hardest part of the job was to stand all day long and lifting up heavy boxes. i really enjoyed the job and management was friendly and understandable.
Loader/Unloader (Former Employee) – Kenosha, WI – May 16, 2018
I used to work in the UPS section of uline loading trailers as a temp. Extremely fast, backbreaking work. Chances of getting hired in were extremely slim, and you are slaving away for only a paycheck. No benefits, no respect, no time off, and constant reminders that you are expendable. Turnover was incredibly high, and in my 4 months of working there, I trained 17 people, including Uline's own employees and management. Horribly understaffed, as the work of 6 people is often done by 4 or 5. Managers and leads dont bother to help. I got fired after asking for a raise.
Great Place To Work, hard to meet production goals
Repack Worker (Former Employee) – Pleasant Prairie, WI – May 8, 2018
Uline is a great place to work. Although their production goal numbers are curved do to employees lying about the time taken to complete a job. So for those who tell the truth seem to be slower than the rest.
