I have been working at H. D. Smith Wholesale Drug

Pros

Good Pay
Good Benefits
Rarely work overtime
Can take time off basically whenever needed

Cons

Little on the job learning
Little growth potential
Located in a crummy area
Pay increases barely match the inflation rate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I believe the company would see less turn-over and an increase in productivity if they would make a greater investment in human capital and put more effort into developing talent.

    I have been working at H. D. Smith Wholesale Drug

    Pros

    Decent pay
    Some flexibility
    Some movement possible
    Benefits are ok
    Lower management is good
    Moral is ok
    Dress at some locations casual

    Cons

    Benefits keep going up
    Company is not constant with raises
    Company let go many employees with years of experience to keep lowered paid employees.
    Some employees treated better than a others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more visible to the low people. Being seen and interacting with your lower level employees will boost people moral. When you report up to someone and they don't know your name....that's bad business

    I worked at H. D. Smith Wholesale Drug full-time

    Pros

    Mid management and employees are great people to work with. I would have mentioned more but new VP took those away because of cut backs.

    Cons

    VP is cutting jobs or forcing people to quit. They will cut your job when you are on Maternity leave. The Divison is under staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The managers that run each department are doing great and work well with their teams. Upper level management ( VP and up ) need to understand that you are hurting the company and the employees. Moral is at an all time low and you have shown that you don't care. Don't hold a meeting and mention that we are doing great as division and our overhead cost are at a all time low because of cut backs to salaries. What were you thinking !?! Everyone has lost all respect for you and are only nice to you out of fear of losing their jobs. Learn to work with your team not against them.
