    Pros

    Co-workers

    Company doesn't care for its employees. You get points for everything including sick time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be family oriented.

    Pros

    Great mix of people. Fast paced work makes the day go by. Immature people makes work pretty entertaining. Enough to get by for now....

    Cons

    New management only cares about the bottom line, previous management would at least come out and make a effort to communicate and show some interest in the teammates. People can't follow simple SOP'S, makes the daily work load more difficult. Believe in hard work? Don't waste your energy, management likes to promote average teammates with no drive or heart. Leaving those teammates who put in the energy and work on the back burner. You want a job to just collect a check this is it, if you think your work ethic will help you grow within "the company" your mistaken. Enjoy working in a stressful environment because people are oblivious and flat out lazy apply within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up. Treat your good teammates better.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 have been working at Owens & Minor as an intern

    Pros

    There are no pro's for this company.

    Cons

    The pay is very very low compared to market. Management is clicky, rude, unprofessional. If you are not a part of the old timers group, you will be outcast. You will be spoken to with rude, harsh, demeaning words. You will be ostracized from meetings you should be on, and thrown under the bus because the long timers have been getting away with what they have been doing, that when someone new comes in and actually knows what they are doing and what is going on, they will get rid of you. This was one of the worst experiences in my life and probably the most un professional group of haters I have ever worked among.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no advice. Management is the problem.

    Former Employee - Warehouse Associate

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Create an working environment with more career progression for employees

    I worked at Owens & Minor

    Pros

    At one time this company had heart

    Cons

    Such adamant refusal to be more efficient and allow teammates to work easier with technology and tools for today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wonder why Cardinal stock has tripled in the past 7 years while OMI has lagged as if it were 1970?
    Lack of innovation and lack of fear to recognizing how dynamic the world is and embracing change have kept this company in the past.
