Warehouse Manager (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – February 7, 2019
Uline is by far the best company I have worked for in my career. The culture, work environment, strong leadership, developmental opportunities and benefits are just a few things that will keep me at Uline for many years to come.
I am very happy at Uline. The only thing I would change is that I wish I came to Uline right after college.
General Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Waukegan, IL – January 30, 2019
Uline had awful hours to work and when it was time to have a job opening to grow they already knew who the next person was to fill in that spot. I moved up quickly but made me feel like I was never good enough.
General Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Breinigsville, PA – January 30, 2019
During my time at Uline I found that I had little to no time spent with family and friends. Although the pay is good and they provide good benefits, I was not happy there. I felt as though management did not really care about anything beside what was in front of a computer. There was no real room for advancement even though I was told there was. 90% of the associates I came into contact with did not enjoy working there but were there for the paycheck. It wasn't an ideal working situation but it provided financial stability.

Workplace is extremely competitive Bonuses are nice Managers treat subordinates like monkeys Hours and overtime are mandatory Bottom of the Barrel workers are treated as such and constantly put down by managent Opportunities for growth are non existent and management will promote friends rather than qualified individuals
Lack of opportunity.. They don’t allow you to progress ..
Assembly Worker (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – January 2, 2019
No matter what your work ethic is. They don’t allow you to progress . They have steady consistent workers but offer the better paying positions to new temps off the streets.. foaming is the hardest position there but the pay is equivalent to the easiest position there.. and even if there’s a smoother position open, they don’t allow you to switch... It stay where you are or quit.. sad.. I’ve even trained my supervisor and lead man on certain projects and still no recognition
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Ontario, CA – December 26, 2018
This job is temporary most of the people their 75% have only been their for 2 years. Very high turnover rate. When I started 2 years later most of the people had either quit or had been fired that seems to be the cycle. You work long days and 1 break, back breaking work till you are gassed out and replace you for a fresh new employee. Yes the benefits and pay is great but not worth it in my opinion. Alot of people injured their back working their, if the company really cared about its employees it would work with them to stay long term and not give up on them for "lack of performance" glad i Ieft and started and actual trade career and never looked back. If you like the pay and work like a robot and 25 managers watching your every move and judging you knock yourself out.

This company is absolutely wonderful to their employees. They have events year round for them, including a turkey fry, holiday party, six flags, etc. They offer discounts on their merchandise (at cost), discounted tickets/season passes to six flags, they give out gift cards for solid performance, profit sharing bonuses, performance bonuses, everything. They treat them very well.
Management however, does not. For example, management follows employees into restrooms to ensure that "they don't take too long" even though when approached by them they will only tell you that they just wanted to make sure everything was ok...Like I'm fine but can I just go #2? The management here will also drive around on golf carts telling everyone that they need to work harder and keep at it but they will RARELY hop onto equipment and help out. Take it for what it is I suppose.
