    Pros

    You get to work in an air conditioned warehouse. Decent health and dental coverage. Filling orders for hospitals gives one a sense that you are contributing to society. Lots of overtime.

    Cons

    The order pickers were told: if you hit 120% pick-rate for a pay period, you would receive a dollar per hour bonus. Most people barely hit 90%. Well, when the fastest guy on the floor hit those numbers, management's first response was "Oh, we didn't think anyone could actually do it." He went to HR, HR said it wasn't a thing. A week later, they told him "You didn't meet all the criteria." Management was somehow surprised when he gave his weeks notice afterwards.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, great customers at Hospital Facilities, access to Operating Room and ability to sit in on procedures.

    Cons

    Lack of support from management, no direction and zero training and on-boarding for new hires, leadership does not know which direction they want to take with the company. Management does not set their employees up for success.

    Listen to employees and help them. Dont talk down to employees, and show more respect. Keep open communication

    I worked at Owens & Minor full-time

    Pros

    In my opinion, the only pro to working here is having a job to pay the bills until you can find something else. However, this review is based on my experience from over a year ago. Right before I left there were serious changes being made to upgrade equipment and improve the layout. The cons listed below may not reflect the current condition at this location. I would read more recent reviews before deciding to work for this company.

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay for what is asked of you, nonexistent raises, unsafe working conditions, poor warehouse layout, poor work and scoring systems, non functioning equipment, or lack or equipment, poor communication between management and warehouse staff

    Advice to Management

    Obtain a larger warehouse, you are carrying too many accounts for the space you have available. Have more than one working printer for the whole warehouse so there isn't a bottleneck of people waiting for 20 minutes for a single label. Have enough RF units for all the people employed at your location so people aren't standing around for the first 45 minutes of there shift wondering what there function is. Offer proper incentives, raises, and safer working conditions. The rate of pay and rate of raise, and inability to advance, for what is expected of the employee, makes this job a stepping stone or place holder instead of a career. The make shift piece pick line (while it has now been replaced with a modern pick module) should have never been put into use and was a perfect example of the inefficiency and hazardous work practices that represent the way the rest of this warehouse is run. Create a better system for overtime, no one wants to works 15 hour days for 3 month regardless of what there paycheck looks like.

    Pros

    Very structured work environment, some cool perks for winning attendance records.

    Cons

    Very rigid work environment, feel like they treat the employees differently based on title, felt like most employees are treated like children rather than adults with the way their policies are set up.

    Advice to Management

    Create policies that hold employees accountable but don't patronize or treat employees as children (namely distribution employees).

    Management is terrible! Lots of discrimination going on here at this company

    Hire someone that cares about the team and getting the job done as a team. Come out of the office and get your hands dirty once in a while
