Company summary

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 products to the catalog.

Uline has steadily grown and continues to be a family owned and run business. The product line has expanded to include industrial, packaging, shipping, material handling, retail and janitorial supplies, including over 1,550 shipping box sizes alone. The 750-page Uline catalog reaches businesses nationwide, offering 34,000 products with quick delivery.

Today, with over 6,000 employees in North America, Uline has distribution centers in Chicago, IL; Minneapolis, MN; Allentown, PA; Los Angeles, CA; Atlanta, GA; Dallas, TX and Seattle, WA. We also have international facilities in Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver Canada, along with Mexicali and Monterrey Mexico.

Uline is a drug-free workplace.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better dress code and less micro managing. Trust your employees to do the job you hired them to do because you only hire the best of the best

What I like about the company

Since working here I have been able to move ahead and gain promotions faster then any other company and learn new skills along the way

What I dislike about the company

I don't like how they monitor our bathroom breaks and the dress code definitely needs to be reevaluated

Suggestions for improvement

  • It would be nice to have vacation days and sick days separate.

What I like about the company

I like that it is a very structured job and the employees I work with are very helpful. It is very fast paced, however, I have found this does make the day go fast.

What I dislike about the company

The work hours are decent. It would be nice to have earlier hours. Management can be very picky at times and this can make for a stressful work day.
