Every warehouse nationwide is different. For the most part you won't have a manager breathing down your neck. Your workload will depend on the city you work in. From what I understand Joerns pays the most out of the DME companies in my area. There is a lot of freedom and overtime is always available (sometimes required). Joerns had a rough 2016 and is hoping to recover in 2017. Management (in my case) is available by phone and you will probably have a supervisor in house otherwise known as a "lead tech". The lead is an extension of your manager so you will go to them with day to day concerns. As I mentioned before it was a rough 2016, riddled with high turn over rates in CS, billing issues, and credit holds. My day to day life is great here, it's when you get a glimpse of corporate and all the internal work, this is where most frustration stems. You are often limited to what you can accomplish in a day due to lack of inventory, which has not improved in the years I have been here. Overall, decent pay, alot of OT, freedom, CS issues, credit holds, inventory problems.
Fight for a high wage $17-19/hr if hired because raises are very little. (2017)
2 week orientation in
Los Angeles or Louisville is nice.
Freedom, Ot, laid-back, rebuilding
Potentially unstable, inventory issues, credit holds
