    I have been working at Owens & Minor

    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 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

    Pros

    If you're just looking for a job and to work for a company who doesn't care about the employees any longer and works you like a sweatshop then this would be it. Management used to care about the people, but with all the organizational changes every person is out for themselves and their pockets

    Cons

    No support...you have to fight for your raises and then with that being said they will throw additional work on you and set high unreasonable expectations for you to perform 2 roles. For get about calling in sick. You will get docked for points and if you plan on having surgery you better plan on going back to work right then after or you will get docked. Management simply ignores your complaints but pretends to care...no one cares about the employees...don't get sucked in..if you drink the corporate kool - aid you will get sucked in. No advancement unless your friends with management and go out to lunch with them to get manicures. If you show any sign of intelligence and skills management gets scared and think your trying to take their job. The employee morale is extremely low people only stay because they have bills until they can find another job. It's just simply sad. Management "creates" roles for those they choose to make them for. 90% of the people there hate their job but afraid to say it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to treat your employees instead of treating them like little minions working in a sweatshop. Karma always comes back around. Management needs to go on undercover bosses and learn how to do everyone's job. Not as easy as you think.

    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.
