    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
