    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Dublin, OH

    I worked at Medco Health full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Starting salary was $13/hour. Many opportunities for advancement. Ability to work from home. Supervisors were approachable. Upper management was accessible and cared about associates.

    Cons

    Long interview process, multiple interviews over several days. Lack of consistency and nowhere to find answers to some questions. Some stress over sending the wrong medication to customers, this is a big deal. Although the starting pay was high, after first review at the end of the year, we only received a .20¢ pay raise for the next year.The training ended at 5pm so we got caught in rush hour on the way home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shorten the interview process and create an employee development plan.

    Pros

    Commission was amazing as well as the benefits. Training was thorough and assisted in completing duties to the fullest. Managers were there to help assist you in improving sales and provided great learning feedback on how to improve sales techniques.

    Cons

    At times there were several changes to scripting and dialogue to callers. Need more training on how to pronounce medicine names and which were maintenance form medications and which were temporary.

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits
    Decent work environment
    Generally good people

    Cons

    IT goes to great lengths to avoid any impact to "production" systems ... but it turns out "production" is nearly everything
    Management often jumping around from crisis to crisis without staying focused on strategic priorities
    Corporate Blame Assignment is a formalized process

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really -- company has been sold and is being integrated into Express Scripts (a smaller company before the merger)
