    Pros

    Coworkers for the most part are great people.

    Cons

    A 9 billion dollar company that treats its' employees like utter trash rates. Christmas bonus 80 dollars. Lied to in interview about pay raises and room for growth. Both are a lie. care more about their lack of individuality and corporate policies than the individual. I have more formal education than ALL of my management and do more work than my coworkers yet I'm "in threat" of losing my job here because of tardiness points (yes I'm serious) due to inconsistency of mass transit in major metropolitan areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within. Hire younger. Promote individuality and ditch your corporate nonsense. 9 billion dollars? Why is it so hard to say drop a billion in promote to promote healthier employee families versus keeping your employees down?

    I worked at Owens & Minor full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were good and local teammates were great!

    Cons

    Long days and upper management seems clueless to the local issues. Owens and Minor cut me after 21 years of service and I received a great review prior month. Management focused on the dollar and not their employees. Cut a lot of the older reps and brought in new a younger reps I assume to pay less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more approachable and honest.

    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.

    I have been working at Owens & Minor full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Met some solid individuals who made those long nights bearable.

    Cons

    Lot of favoritism shown to people who would suck up to supervisor. If you can't get your Med numbers pulling bulk, you shouldn't be rewarded with only having to do totes all night. Thus inflating you med score that you previously couldn't hit. Hourly employee running shift. Half the shift not showing up which made for some brutal nights. Warehouse was a dump with unsafe pallets hanging on for dear life. Management could care less about that, more worried about your med numbers for you 15 minute break. People riding around on stock pickers and reach truck who were not certified to do so. Getting stuck behind certain people in certain isles made for a lot of fun.
