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

    Pros

    Fitness center, decent benefits. If you go along with executive management, you will keep your job. Opportunity to learn the industry and to make contacts. Some training but may be of little value depending on your role or career. Hourly employees have the chance to work a lot of overtime.

    Cons

    Long hours for no reward, constant change in leadership and priorities. Large divide between upper management and everyone else. There is not much opportunity to for promotion despite what the company wants you to believe. Raises are almost nonexistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and follow through on your commitments. Don't promise or say one thing and then deliver something else. Provide training that is truly of value. You don't motivate the best people by treating them poorly - reward them for their hard work. Don't give someone a poor review or small raise and call it an opportunity to improve.

    So much for not "Cardinal-izing" the place...

    Pros

    Fitness Center - Hands down, the single greatest benefit of working in Twinsburg. Full-use fitness center complete with plenty of standard and specialty equipment, clean locker rooms and free, professional personal trainers! This place could stand on its own as a business.

    Decent pay and bonus, especially given the area.

    Cons

    Long hours are continuously expected without even consideration for compensation - time or pay, official or unofficial. Upper management makes promises without consulting their teams. Goals are arbitrary; top leadership has schizophrenic decision-making process which wastes effort and resources, seemingly making new priorities out of thin air. Seems like current leadership was put in place in order to help Cardinal absorb the company with as little fuss as possible. No new opportunities for existing employees, seems to mostly be a "farm team" for Cardinal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you talk about work-life balance, back it up.

    This used to be a GREAT company until Cardinal Health purchased it in 2013.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are decent and there are still some great AssuraMed people working there.

    Cons

    First mistake AssuraMed purchased Invacare. Second mistake, they let Cardinal buy them. The ISG/ Invacare integration was poorly handled and had a a very negative impact on all DC's. Once great management has been beaten up and forced to implement policies and regulations that are extremely difficult to reach for an above and beyond employee. What they do and expect of those who aren't record breakers, but are good people and hard workers is just unfair. I was a record breaker and I proudly worked for and brought people to this company. My personal work ethics are that you go in every day with a positive attitude, work your tail off to make service as a team to ensure that chronically ill people get what they need to help them in the best way possible. Cardinal wants your blood. Cardinal will break your spirit. What a shame. RGH Enterprises/Assuramed WAS great company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to what worked. Remember, when you were growing in leaps and bounds? Remember, it was about the people, good values and great service. What happened? I hope that you can get it back.

    Disjointed, out-of-touch management, mandatory overtime, responsibilities constantly growing.

    I have been working at AssuraMed full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    AssuraMed is dedicated to growth, profit and community involvement. They offer fairly competitive pay and decent benefits, offer time off for charity work. If you are a multitasker with boundless energy and hate your home life, do apply.

    Cons

    Expectations of warehouse associates change almost daily.
    The warehouse layout is a disorganized free-for-all, which has caused the workload for individuals to increase exponentially. New processes and responsibilities are added constantly.
    Associates joined with the expectation of straightforward eight-hour days, Monday through Friday, with occasional overtime but are now expected to work anywhere from ten to sixteen mandatory hours every day including Saturdays AND some Sundays.
    Management and most of the leads have formed a clique, standing around talking sports and gossiping while everyone else fends for themselves.
    Every few weeks management will suddenly change longstanding policies and abruptly banish processes and replace them with entirely new processes, without the input of the people who are expected to adapt to them, all of this while maintaining 100% or higher productivity and 99.97% accuracy.
    Break times are diminished by the fact that there are only two outbound shifts. Associates are expected to clock out then walk across the entire warehouse to the small, crowded break room to spend their entire break standing in line for water/coffee.
    The amount of whispering and shushing that goes on in the warehouse feels like working with eighth-graders.
    The company supposedly encourages higher education but will not accommodate ANY class schedule. Students are expected to go to school during off-hours only, of which there are only eight, since the warehouse is now a "work-to-task" environment that mandates up to sixteen hours availability. Many associates have had quit going to school.
    Associates are constantly being injured due to unsafe conditions, equipment and exhaustion.
    Parking is terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop implementing new processes without involving the associates who are intended to follow them. We have real experience. Our feedback and suggestions should not be taken lightly. Split up the shifts: forty people can't take lunch in the same room at the same time. Add an overnight shift to do all of the prep work.

    I have been working at AssuraMed full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Meeting new people and getting a monthly bonus

    Cons

    Long hours, heavy lifting, no talking, one break on a constant 11-16 hr shift, micro-managed, management stick together, harassment, hostile work environment, high turn over do to poor/inexperience management, threats from management for team work and talking!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you interview & hire people, don't tell them they'll be working 8 hour shifts, then when they start, you change & say they have to work until all work is finished. That can be any where from 10 to 16 hours, with just one 45 min break!!
    If employees are coming to you about being harassed by a part of the management team, do not make excuses & say "I'll try to look into it", do something about it!!
    Do not have women working alone on mixed packing. Boxes can weigh up to 44lbs and that's too heavy for a woman to lift!!

    Pros

    Better than not having a job, It is safe to say that the only reason that I still work here is that I haven't found another job yet.

    Cons

    Management never follows through!! Management sets pie in the sky stats for bonus' while never explaining what they actually want. This has caused my bonus to drop from over 400$ a month to just over 100$ a month. Management states that they want you to grow and increase your skill base however, they are unwilling to follow through with the training plan that they put forth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through with what you say you will do
