    I worked at Owens & Minor full-time

    Pros

    Liked most of my peers.

    Expectations for performance were clear.

    This sentence is just to bring the pros up to the twenty word minimum.

    Cons

    If you're connected with management, you can get away with a lot of sins (texting, late for work, and more).

    Warehouse hot in the summer, cold in the winter.

    Better be ready to do OT on one hour's notice regardless of your personal situation. Will be held against you if you have to leave on time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't know what goes on at the top, but the level 1, 2, and 3 managers (yes that includes the GM) at my site were lacking.

    Eliminate the slackers, those who are poor managers regardless of tenure.

    I have been working at Owens & Minor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits but have nothing positive to say other than that

    Cons

    This place is constant turmoil. It is not about doing the job right and making the customer happy it is about POLITICS and who like who and who doesn't like who. Longevity and loyalty and great job performance has nothing to do with surviving in the company, it about who likes who. DC management likes people to feel that their jobs are constantly in jeopardy. They promote fear and intimidation and the Home Office HR seems to like this too.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the basics. Work to satisfy the customer not work to see who is best at the politics. Pay attention to something that is constantly happening at DC's that is wrong and investigate why it is really happening. Teammates end up being the scapegoats for DC managements bad decisions and direction. Example: If GM's at a particular DC just don't seem to last over and over again maybe take a good hard look the the AVP that is directing the GM's and so on. Ask yourselves " Why is this happening again and again " Then take action.
