Great Company, Poor Management, Zero Job Security
Account Manager/Outside Sales (Current Employee) –  MidwestJanuary 10, 2016
Medline is an amazing company, forward thinking and well paying if you're hard working. Management is oblivious to what is going on in the field and with the end users. There are more levels of management than there needs to be. "Too many chefs in the kitchen" so-to-speak.... Quotas are increased by a minimum of 15% every year, regardless of the territory or economy and if you don't make it, you might not have a job the following year. There is a lot of pressure and little support. Medline used to be a family company but since they've grown so much they have definitely a more corporate, cut-throat culture. The best part of the job is the people you grow to know and like. You have the same customers for years and get to develop great relationships with them. What I've learned from working at Medline, is that you are just a number and sometimes your best will never be good enough.
Pros
No cold calling, good pay, benefits
Cons
Poor management, long hours, no job security

not the best paying job I've ever had
janitor (Former Employee) –  Mansfield, MAFebruary 2, 2016
Did Janitorial for medline mansfield. Plenty of parties with food, pizza etc. Pay was low. When you normally make 20 an hour and medline pays 11 its quite pitiful.
Upper managers there are great. Warehouse floor managers have a personal vendetta for some reason.
I had no issues there however it was not so for some.
If a floor manager dislikes you then they will ride u.

Most employees are great. Some are very unhappy and you will encounter them in narrow aisles while both of you are riding a machine. Not a good combination. Benefits are great. Company is good but they are a mill for humans to do their slave labor. There isn't much of a ladder to move up. It's more like a step ladder and there isn't a ton of money to be made.
Pros
occasional pizza and lunch. very good food
Cons
demeanor is low. people are not happy there.

Employee appreciation days
Temp - Bridge Personnel Agency (Current Employee) –  Waukegan, ILNovember 28, 2015
Every work day had different challenges with component issues and quality. I have learned to be a better leader and how to work well under pressure. My job required daily management of work order samples for custom sterile kits and Cardinal management with efforts in communicating accurate information was good in some areas. I enjoy my co-workers and will miss them. one of the hardest parts of my job was keeping a perfect efficiency record with no errors. The most enjoyable part was good work ethics and an enjoyable work environment.
Pros
Holiday lunches and enjoyable work environment
Cons
temporary employees don't recieve benifits

Operations Specialist (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJanuary 13, 2016
As long as you do what you have to do in a timely fashion with a sense on urgency, it's a breeze. The job is easy to learn. If everyone worked as a team and pull their own weight they'll be no to little over time. But with OT pay the paycheck looks much better!
Pros
Safety. Lots of time off. Performance bonuses! Benefits.
Cons
Long hours, strict on time management

Great Driving Job
Driver (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 22, 2015
If your looking for a great driving job please apply. The Dallas, TX branch is a wonderful place to work. I've had many driving jobs but this one is hands down the best! You're home daily, not micromanaged and weekends off. I hear mixed things about warehouse issues but the driving side of the business is awesome!
Pros
Home daily, insurance benefits, 401k and bonuses for safe driving and attendance.
Cons
Driver meeting's quarterly on Saturday's for 3hrs

Warehouse Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Lithia Springs, GADecember 26, 2015
Job is great for someone who needs a permanent job and is more than willing to work long hours with mandatory overtime. They do provide excellent benefits but the management is horrible.

Terrible Management

Extremely low pay for back breaking work. 8 hour days do not exist here.
Case Picker (Current Employee) –  Havre de GraceAugust 8, 2015
DO NOT WORK HERE...This place is a terrible place to work. First of all, the pay is ridiculously low and the raises are garbage considering the amount of work we do. We never no when we are going to go home and lately we have been working 12 to 15 hours a day. The equipment we use is poorly maintained and sometimes I spend 20 to 30 minutes just looking for an RF to use. I'm not quite sure who does the cleaning here but there is always trash and pieces of wood on the floor. Not a food environment to work in.
Pros
I have a job, but I'm looking for a new one.
Cons
Low Pay, No Work Life Balance, Working 12 to 15 hour days, Poor Equipment, Dirty and Dusty

Not intellectually challenging at all although you will be physically drained.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAJanuary 10, 2016
Good benefits besides no sick days, you get points for just about anything. If you do not keep the pace they want or better you will be fired without notice or regard to your health issues. Not a job recommended if you have health problems that can slow you down sometimes such as getting sick or asthma, children or plan on having a life outside of work. You would be at work more than home, you will be home just for rest and to get up and ready for work. Always mandatory overtime just about everyday which is great, but you can only option out by getting a point. Top performers are chosen every other day to be able to leave at their 8 hours but its always the same 4 people so don't count on that. If you do not make friends with leads, supervisors, and human resources your stay wont be long in the company. Also they do not work with school schedules what so ever. If you have an emergency, there is no excuse you will get points or be on the verge of termination, they will say they will work some type of terms with you but eventually just terminate you without notice. Have a job to fall back on. It pays well as long as you overwork yourself to complete exhaustion everyday.
Pros
Dinners provided by the company on holidays, company attire is given 2x a year, Plus a water bottle to have on the job, Bonuses are given for just about anything but are hard to acquire
Cons
Short lunches, Higher ups know how to talk in double meaning so they can insult you whenever they feel like, If youre not running youre not staying long

Over-promise and under delivers
Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Mundelein, ILApril 14, 2016
The company works hard for its customers and clients and is filled with good, hardworking people, but the company over-promises and under delivers to its employees. You are expected to put in a ton of work for years without recognition and you will have to scratch and claw your way to a promotion. Even then a promised promotion doesn't always happen and management will allow the bureaucracy to take over so you need to start over under different management. This company is great for people who want to stay at the same 8-5 position they apply for when interviewing but if you're ambitious and want to reap the rewards for your hard work it's best to look elsewhere.

For high school kids, not a long term career
Warehouse Operator (Former Employee) –  Allentown, PAApril 16, 2015
Don't BOTHER! Upper Management (DO's on up) is clueless on what it takes to get the job done in a warehouse at Medline. They rely on what the genius engineers develop and dictate as the best procedures to get the job done. In many cases making certain jobs take longer and less efficient. Good Job!
This company is in the process of shutting down long time branches and opening up a new branch near by.By doing this they can ditch long time reliable higher paid workers so they can start over at the new branch with newbies for $11.50 per hour, sweet!
Medline's way of putting themselves in line with the Amazon's and Walmart's of the world. Work harder for less pay! This is a job for kids right out of high school.
This was once a great company to work for, but the influx of engineers have ruined the Medline experience.
The only silver lining here is the benefits and vacation time.
Pros
Benefits and time off
Cons
long hours low pay, engineered work procedures poor management

High pressure environment
Account Manager I Field Sales Trainer (Former Employee) –  MidwestJune 14, 2016
Only Acute care sales make good money. The rest of the divisions are challenging. You will not advance if you are not in the inner circle of the company. Compensation plan is changed constantly which creates very unhappy environment. Incapable middle managers. Company does not value higher education at all.
Pros
Financially stable company overall.
Cons
No career advancement and poor pay.

Utility Operator is not the ideal position to work at this place.
Utility Operator (Current Employee) –  Lithia Springs, GAApril 12, 2016
The whole process of getting hired on at Medline is backwards. They do not elaborate on anything as far as job functions/expectations as far as your job title is concerned. I was entered into the wrong orientation upon hiring, the class was for a totally different position than what I applied for. This company also have supervisors whom throw people in different job positions without the proper steps and training needed.
Pros
Excellent benefits
Cons
12 hour work shifts
