    Pros

    Great people! Very team oriented environment. Everyone is willing to lend a hand and get the job done.

    Cons

    Low pay! Going through a lot of changes in management and not producing very good results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more. Give raises to congratulate hard workers. You are going to see a lot of people leave if you don't start rewarding.

    Pros

    Working for Owens & Minor is a great experience. Employees dont always work as a team but get along together.

    Cons

    The management in the Desert Area is terrible. If you have any concern you cannot get anyone to listen to you or they either sweep it under the rug till the subject comes up a second time. Nothing is confiential management always seems to put your name out there like fueling a fire. Need more training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more involved with their employees.
