In 1980, after recognizing a local need for a shipping supply distributor, Liz and Dick Uihlein started Uline from their basement. Their first product was the H-101 carton sizer (still offered today). It sold far beyond their expectations and encouraged the Uihleins to add more ... Read more

    I have been working at Uline full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Uline is definitely an interesting place to work. It all depends on your department and managers. I enjoy the work and I have amazing leadership above me. They treat you really well here with outstanding benefits I know many other companies that would not do half of the things Uline does for their employees. The dress code isn’t as dramatic as people say it is. You are told before hand so when people complain it is just interesting because you were told before you accepted the job. The amount of events we do is great and they are always well done. Work life balance, at least in my department, is great!

    Cons

    At times the CEO is too involved and does not let people do their jobs. She lacks trust in her employees and uses biased opinions to make decisions.
    Although, the dress code isn’t a big deal having woman wear pantyhose is a bit excessive.
    Many employees tattle on each other to HR. Which definitely affects moral, we are treated like insubordinate children at times (too many items on desk someone decides your shoes are too casual etc.)
    The PTO policy is absolutely horrible. People come in sick all the time because they don’t have enough PTO or come in even when family emergencies arise because they are scared. Employees express this a lot but HR still does nothing - employee feedback should be important and implemented.
    Quite a lot of entitled complainers in the company.
    Diversity lacks substantially but it is improving.
    Micro managing - directors micromanage managers which then micro manage their team and so on. You hired people to do their job so let them.

    Advice to Management

    Improve micromanaging. Listen to employees and use feedback it will make us feel happier about working at Uline, like our opinion does matter. HR needs to be more open. They need a designated team or a person who employees can talk to about issues. Right now they just feel like they are there to make their own department run and not there for employees.

    Corporate Trainer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Uline (Milwaukee, WI (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Not practical to the current workforce, Many of the interview techniques are outdated and racially bias. The pre-testing has no relation to the role or job your applying for.
