    Management is A JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
    Fillmore, CA

    ProsGreat Hours.Pay rate is not bad.

    ConsManagement is very Toxic, dishonest. and things are swept under the carpet, lot of backstabbing goes on. But, Like the Los Angeles office.Management repeats confidential information that should remain in the Corporate office. However, Great Parties when supposed to be working.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo Comment....Nothing will ever come to fortition.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    great place to work

    Sales Representative (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsYou have lots of freedom, you own your own business and have respect from buyers and others at hospitals.

    ConsIt can be a challenge to grow your commissions each month due to so many GPO contracts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI feel management is doing a good job at local DC, however C suites might need to rethink their goals and objectives for Wall Street investors.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsPay very well! Lots of over time!

    ConsNo life! Expect employees to work 12 plus hours everyday! Management has no communication amoung employee's. In other words a high turnout rate of walk outs!

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart thinking about employees and not your pocket!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Some great people, but out-of-touch senior management and outdated, paternalistic culture.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLots of awesome people willing to go the extra mile! Beautiful HQ building and lots of in-house classes at company "university" to expand your knowledge.

    ConsAlthough touted as a place for career growth, there are actually few internal promotions. The culture is focused on teaming, but there is considerable back-stabbing. Top management is out of touch with current employment practices. Still very much a white-male-dominated culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees by preparing them for future roles and taking promotion risks, so people don't have to leave the company for growth. Evaluate top leaders objectively to see where changes could drastically improve the culture.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to work for unless you get stuck in the New Orleans branch.

    Warehouse Associate (Former Employee)
    Saint Rose, LA

    ProsGreat people to work with in a pretty laid back environment most days. A lot of fun to be had while completing your duties. Travel opportunities.

    ConsNot a good work-life balance, long hours with no set time to get off. While management preaches teamwork there is nothing at all done to promote it. They are constantly trying to pit you against one another. Your pay will basically stay the same forever unless you get a promotion to another title, witch will only happen if you suck up to the right person. No matter how you perform or what sacrifices you make for the company in the end do not care about anything but there bottom line.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPractice what you preach!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    This place is a joke

    Order Picker (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you enjoy working In filth, having you job threatened everyday, working 12 hours a day then this would be your dream job.

    ConsL.A. street gangs are more organized, drug dens are probably cleaner and crocked politicians have nothing on the stuff that goes on here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive up and let someone else run this company! Or rent a bulldozer

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Work Environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking for Owens & Minor is a great experience. Employees dont always work as a team but get along together.

    ConsThe management in the Desert Area is terrible. If you have any concern you cannot get anyone to listen to you or they either sweep it under the rug till the subject comes up a second time. Nothing is confiential management always seems to put your name out there like fueling a fire. Need more training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to be more involved with their employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
