Working at Covidien

  • Penny in Delhi, New York 26 months ago
    I was employed with this company for 21 yrs,with all the loyalty and respect one could give, I had even at times put my employer before my family. Then in February 2012 I was terminated with no warning, meeting to discuss what was my future for a human error, not for stealing drugs; even management agreed it was a human error and that it could have happened to anyone, I even spoke directly with supervisor of my concerns and she told me that I had nothing to worry about as it was a human error, the next day on my day off I was contacted to come to the plant, which I thought I was receiving a written warning or a possible suspension, but that was not the case I was terminated with no warning or say, even what was written on the form was not completely correct as it stated that I issued the errant topserts to production, which was not the truth and they had documentation of that information. The error I was involved in did actual happen previously that is why the company placed automated sensors and systems in place to prevent a wrong topsert (leaflet that describes the product) being placed incorrectly. which that those system were bi-passed, which that error was not human but intentionally bypassed. I feel bad for them that they treat people this not so much so on me anymore as they gave me the opportunity to really see their true color.

    Every business has its own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Covidien? Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers? What is a typical day in the life of an employee at Covidien?
