    Pros

    Management in Chicago is incredible! You couldn’t ask for a better leadership team. Owens offers a multitude of training courses that company encourages sales team to take.

    Cons

    Pay is on the lower side. Moving up in the company takes time so this is a company you have to be willing to pay your dues at to be promoted.

    Pros

    Solid pay, management treats everyone with respect, and there are good opportunities for promotion if you're willing to work for it. Most people have great work/life balances at this company.

    Cons

    The benefits have taken a hit in recent years, but are overall still market competitive. You won't get significant pay raises unless you move up.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees and in their development so that there isn't a "brain drain" when more senior managers leave/retire.

    Pros

    It's great for a single person who is not married and has no kids. A lot of Overtime Mandatory. ( it's there second name ) Great pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    They give you points and treat you like crap if you call in sick or injured. Even if you have a doctor's notes stating the reason and cause. They do not care about you as much as they claim to. It's all about they don't give a care, they only want bodies to fill orders.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the incident or situation and determine what is valid reason to give a person points or let them use other personal or vacation time.

    I worked at Owens & Minor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work there for over a year. Good working schedule. Friendly work environment. Good pay for a warehouse job. Good medical benefits. I enjoyed working for the company. I would have stayed if there were room for advancement.

    Cons

    There is not much room for advancement for a warehouse worker. There are not many positions for promotion. This makes it impossible to have a career there. I left because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Create an working environment with more career progression for employees
