Temp (Current Employee) – Melville, NY – July 12, 2017
Here is a typical working day: You receive expediting assignments, reach out to suppliers or other internal departments, and communicate statuses of orders to the overseer of the assignment.
I learned effective communication skills when dealing with suppliers and relaying information to my overseers. I improved in both organization and documenting skills when regarding information.
Everyone is supportive and actively providing me with constructive tips to better my experience and growth.
The toughest part of the job is just getting acclimated to the work flow. If you put in the effort to get the work done and you allow yourself to become conditioned over time, then you won't have problems around a month into the job.
My most enjoyable part of the job is the people in the department and how effective their communication is. They just made the experience here far less painful than it has to be.
Supportive People, Decent Training, Good for Experience.
Cubicles, Sitting in front of a computer all day, Repetitive Work.
EST/CIT (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 11, 2017
As a Tech, you are the professional when its convenient for the company. It is all about sales, the sales team will dictate the technical aspects despite the fact that YOU as the technician are the expert there is no project manager to bridge the gap between operations and sales. Benefits are great, however the dispatching system is non existent you are SUPPOSED to be dispatched based on location however this is far from the truth you in fact will pass your fellow technicians as you cover his area and he covers yours. You will be pushed to your limit. You will be dispatched by 3 different entities non of which communicate with each other. It will be the technicians who keep your sanity, it is a great group of guys to work with. You are provided a company vehicle, laptop (32 bit, poorly optimized) as well as company card (ball and chain). You will also go out of town, sometimes quite a bit, at times you will arrive at location "some times hundreds of miles away" and the equipment will not be there or not ordered. They try to be a dental services/supply/managed IT services company, in hot markets such as New York, Dallas, it simply does not work.

Dispatcher (Former Employee) – West Allis, WI – July 8, 2017
Henry Schein is overall a nice company to work for. The dispatch department however needs tremendous improvement. There is way too much work divided upon a small team of dispatchers. There was no way to keep up with everything.
I believe if dispatch would add more head count and increase the pay it would be a good department to work in. Everyday I left I felt mentally drained.
There is lack of support from local management. I cannot recall a time when the team was stressed and behind and management came to help with workload.
Production Manager (Current Employee) – Golden, CO – June 26, 2017
Fun operation with the potential to provide great career mobility but lacking in corporate support and funds so action is often delayed. Organization culture leaves much to be desired but there are a few employees that genuinely want to make a difference and they keep the operation successful.

Support Tech (Former Employee) – American Fork, UT – June 12, 2017
The company is awesome at providing opportunities for you to hone your skills and gain new ones. Helping you to gain an understanding of the front and back end of dental management software. When i first started, the management team was great, but as the new head of support was hired from Convergys, the support floor became less of a family oriented team and more, individual every man for himself type.
Picker/Packer (Current Employee) – United States – June 10, 2017
horrible management, a ton of favoritism , Affairs occurring with employees and higher management, human resources are full of clowns. Very unprofessional when handling terminations(i have heard and seen), will not help you improve, bossy and expect very much for so little, some employees are very lazy and talk for an hour without working several times yet recieve no discipline. No help in moving to different departments, they also tell you they hire you through the company yet you will receive no benefits, no help even after the three months to become a regular. HORRIBLE PLACE.
It's a great place to work if you like repetitive work and like to work overtime
Picker (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 9, 2017
A typical day at work is fast paced if you are a picker. Hardest part of the job is getting to learn how to use the "Jennifer" headset. You must be comfortable with being on your feet all day and must have good listening skills.The managers are cool and understanding people but you get a limited amount of excused absences.
Get a voluntary choice to work a couple hours of overtime
work through a temp agency and you must be prepared to stand on your feet all day
Fast pace work environment. A very caring company that treated their employees with great respect.
Manager of Special Projects (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – May 30, 2017
Henry Schein was a first class company to work for. Very long work hours especially when working on acquisitions. Not much chance for for advancement. Lovely upper management. Very nice people to work with. Very concerned with helping the community as well as our global neighbors. One example of this is the participation in Habitat for Humanity, of which I was glad to be of help on a number of occasions. Another, is their generous donations of medical and dental supplies to victims of catastrophic disasters, at home and around the world.
Representative (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – May 27, 2017
This company has no morals. While I have never worked for them I have first hand knowledge. They try to take advantage of manufacturers and customers alike. I personally have seen them trade narcotics with customers and bilk manufacturers for money they stick in their back pocket. Illegal.
Sr. Project Lead (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – May 23, 2017
The people I worked with were nice and job stress is about the same as in most places I have worked. However, some top management personnel don't seem to understand the culture or practice in the IT profession.
Temporary HR Employee (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – May 22, 2017
I worked for Henry Schein for a couple months and very much enjoyed my time there. The culture was a good fit for me. The employee camaraderie was exceptional. There were always events, lunches, etc. I hope I get the chance to earn a permanent position there in the future.
Warehouse Coordinator/Shipping (Former Employee) – Livermore, CA – May 16, 2017
Warehouse positions are the only position that is not climate controlled. The co-workers are pleasant and helpful. The manager is an evil, micromanaging, overbearing b*****. THE worst boss I've ever had.
