Uline, which described itself as “North America’s leading shipping supply specialist” in a news release about the upcoming hiring blitz, will host a hiring event for potential candidates at 700 Uline Way, Allentown, this Saturday, Feb. 20 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The warehouse positions will offer pay rates starting at $23 per hour or higher (a rate that includes a $5 per hour essential worker pay premium), the news release said, along with a sign-on bonus of $1,000 and annual bonuses over $7,000, paid in December.
“Despite the challenges of COVID-19, Uline continues to see substantial growth thanks to the hard work of our employees and our ability to supply companies with the products they need to stay open,” Uline Branch Manager Tim McDonough said. “Our Allentown facility hired 195 employees in 2020 and we are continuing to invest in the Lehigh Valley by hiring 200 more warehouse workers in 2021.”
