    Could be better

    I have been working at Henry Schein full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work,I learn something new every day- co-workers are nice, hard working, dedicated people. Lots of charity and volunteer opportunities.

    Cons

    Managers and supervisors are not properly trained to manage and supervise. Most are micro-managers who behave like tyrants and bullies rather than do what is best for the team and the customers. I have seen favoritism and bullying on a daily basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better training in getting the most out of your team without demeaning them

    Pros

    Free sample products from suppliers

    Cons

    Everything! You are micromanaged with people looking over your shoulder and listening to your calls all day long. Commission structure is set up in a pool which changes every month, and you get a small percentage of that pool. It won't matter if you are a top seller or a bottom seller.
    Horrible life work balance. If you need time for you family or kids...too bad, you have to really fight for time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will get better results by letting your sales people do what they do best...sell, without your interference. Actually reward your sales people by giving them commission on what they sell.

    Pros

    Paid time off ,dental insurance .

    Cons

    Low pay and annual raises are a joke .No matter what you do your raise will never be more then between 1 and 3 % no real insensitive to go above and beyond what is required. Management famous for telling you what you want to hear and doing nothing .Over promise and under produce .Don't care about low level employees , only worried about rich getting richer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring Temps with no work ethic.Raise pay rate . This is supposed to be a Fortune 500 Co than stop paying people at warehouse level of the Co ,poverty level money.

    Pros

    Headaches and politics and constant fear of management

    Cons

    You're job is just a leverage tool so management feels good and if you don't play along you will be fired or drivin to quit nobody in upper management will help you and hr is in lockstep.i know this to be true as i am a former victim of shine culture.even though terminated for sticking up for myself when know one else would management once again protected their own and threw me away.

    I have been working at Henry Schein as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    paycheck clears every time. Some of the people are Great to work with.

    Cons

    5 years and the last two have been so wrong. Management does not know how to manage but they do know how to stick the knife in your back. Only thing that matters at this corp is how much green you bring in. The managers will make stuff up to get you fired if they don't like you. Oh the men managers don't like women they think they are below them. Don't even think about working for them they will have you in tears in no time..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue on how people should be treated. Get with the time times and stop running your billion dollar Co. on Dos programing duh....

    Pros

    Nothing positive could come from this company.

    Cons

    Micromanaged, commission structure that is impossible to figure out and very disappointing. No matter how hard you work, your commission won't go up. No incentive for improving. No where to move. Systems are extremely out dated and hard to navigate. For ordering some special order items they require experts, these so called "experts" struggle with the ordering system to place the order. some take weeks to go through.

    Former Employee - Inbound in Sparks, NV
    Former Employee - Inbound in Sparks, NV

    I worked at Henry Schein full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Inbound team members work tirelessly for this company, often without thanks or recognition and frequently without support from the “leadership” or IM group. The “quality” that the customer receives starts with the Inbound team’s hard work. This team deserves better support from local “leadership”, senior management and the IM group.

    Cons

    Originally when I took over the position I felt the biggest challenge would stem from lack of systems and discipline of the team. However, I quickly realized that inflated egos, dirty office politics and administrative incompetence would prove to be bigger obstacles. The total disregard for professionalism, honesty, integrity and values demonstrated by the “leadership” of this Distribution center take away from the positive experiences and cheapens the “Henry Schein Values” that are preached but not followed. These dynamics are not conducive to building a strong team, innovation or productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. Change the negative and deceitful “leadership” culture within the DC. Listen to complaints of current and former TSM's and leadership.

    Pros

    hard working people at the D.C. level

    Cons

    Corporate is corrupt and greedy. They create a culture where management is trained to belittle and dehumanize the everyday worker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not one person in management cares about anything other than their own salary and bonuses created on the backs, sweat and labor of the employees.
