    Pathetic

    Nov 15, 2021 - Warehouse Worker in Memphis, TN
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The benefits are the only pro.

    Cons

    An absolute horrible and pathetic group of management, HR and supervisor personnel. Same for most of the warehouse associates. Anyone hard working, with a good work ethic, need not apply. Everyone that wants to go to work and get paid to talk, instead of having to work, and take extremely long breaks and lunch, Medline is perfect.

    Be careful about the sales draw

    Sep 6, 2021 - Outside Sales Representative 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Lots of support from a high caliber group; lots of products that customers really like with competitive or contract pricing

    Cons

    The Medline rep runs their territory like it is their own business..this is not all bad, but it creates a lot of extra work and can cut into profits for the rep. The rep is involved in determining pricing on non contract items, collecting on past due accounts, sharing in freight costs to name a few examples. In a busy territory, it is very time consuming that it takes away from growing business. Additionally, newer reps have a house draw on existing business. I began my month at almost negative $10,000 commission. Some months were still great but some months I owed the company money (and the negative carried forward to the next month). The rep before me did not have this and when I tried to negotiate that number down after a great review I was told it was never going to change. There are so many transactions every day at Medline, that even if they got it right 99% of the time, that still leaves dozens and dozens of errors for the rep to sort out and sometimes take a financial hit. I felt like I was constantly apologizing every day to customers.

    Promotes within, great benefits, Medline is constantly trying to take care of its employees, competitive wages.

    Nothing, it's a warehouse shipping Medical supplies, might not be for everyone.

    Good companies for career starters

    Aug 10, 2021 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    This is definitely a good company for career starters - the management teams are facilitating the open culture for fresh graduates, and are willing to assign different responsibilities so you won't be limited by just what's on your desk

    Cons

    The downside to that is - you will spend quite a portion of your time fire fighting things without being able to strategically design/improve your business. And Medline is pretty conservative in terms of adopting new tech/processes, so people end up creating a lot of customized and manual processes that are very time-consuming. The value proposition for your career development will dramatically be reduced after 2 to 3 years of tenure here.

    Bad management

    Jul 24, 2021 - Warehouse Operator 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Some of the pros of working at Medline is that you get bonuses every month based on performance and team work. Also you have really cool co-workers. You have weekends off

    Cons

    Management sucks, rarely pays attention to you, they don’t really care about your personal life. Sometimes they’re unorganized and don’t know what to do. And the overtime is ridiculous, I mean a few days of overtime is fine but not a whole week.

    Unprecedented Independence, Ownership, and Responsibility

    Jun 15, 2021 - Senior Product Manager in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Medline gives a lot of ownership and responsibility to new employees who are then able to quickly grow their career.

    Cons

    Due to these unprecedented levels of ownership and responsibility, it's easy to lose any sense of work life balance and face burn out.
