Your typical fast paced distribution job
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – July 5, 2016
Medline is a big distribution center for the medical industry. It's basically a typical warehouse job with a few characteristics that sets it apart from other more laid back warehouse operations. As a picker your typical day will consist of picking product, from different zones with different equipment, and dropping at bay doors. No wrapping of pallets. As a loader your day will consist of consolidating the orders picked from the different zones and load them in trucks. Some picker zones require you to be on your feet through your shift. The most enjoyable part of the job is since it's fast paced, the time seems to fly. The hardest part of the job is the mental drain of dealing with their voice system and their time management which is embedded into the voice system. You'll be required to login even at dock doors, and your time will be measured. They have a point system based on percentages which can generate a generous bonus at the end of the month, or, for monthly performance reviews. Your performance is pretty much measured in seconds. Co-workers morale can vary. You don't know the time of end of day, they do a pretty good job of calculating overtime, but absences can impact the workday. They have really good benefits. They seem to be short-staffed most of the time, which guarantee OT most of the time.
Benefits, bonuses based on performance.
Time management, Voice system, Monthly performance reviews, kind of a revolving door job.
