Pros: possibility of making a bonus
Cons: pressure to work fast with a system that is kind of flawed.
I work at the distribution center in Durham, NC. We ship out medical supplies everyday. A new hire at our distribution center will work either 10 am to 6:30 pm, or 11 am to 7:30 pm with some overtime when needed. Everyone works M-F. There are earlier shifts you can apply for too, if you perform well and there is an opening. You log into a system called protrack each day. If you pick fast enough then you can earn a bonus, but if you pick too slow then you can be written up and possibly fired if you don't improve. Most people pick fast enough to not have to worry about that though. There are other ways to earn a bonus too. The hardest part about the job is staying up to speed on protrack. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people I work with and the hours we work. Not having to work on the weekend is nice.
I like the management. They do their job, but they are cool too and I enjoy talking to them on break, or at a company party. My co-workers are cool too. Everyone is pretty laid back.
To sum it up, Medline is your typical blue collar warehouse job for people without a college education, that pays under $30,000 a year in most cases. My boss said Medline has done research and found that they pay just as good, or better than the other warehouses in the area. We have had people come from other warehouses to work at Medline and they like it, so it isn't a bad place to work when comparing it to similar/identical jobs. Most people seem to generally be happy with their job.
