5 years ago the Chicago DC's were a great place to work. We had a very talented GM and he had good people under him.
Dedicated Teammate (Former Employee), Carol Stream, ILJuly 18, 2014
Pros: new building in carol stream.
Cons: senior management, lack of compassion, favoritism, bad teammates that should have been terminated still there, and good, devoted teammates let go without cause.
Now it is the equivalent of a "death march", the current GM has zero charisma and makes no effort to get to know the staff. He may know how to read a report and schedule a meeting but beyond that he is severely lacking. Not sure how corporate determined that this was "the guy". He put some office wonk in place and she spends most of her time alienating – more... people. All of the good talent that is left are having the life sucked out of them , with crushingly long hours which sadly is no guarantee that you will still have a job, should a light at the end of the tunnel ever appear. Not a healthy environment at all. – less

Overload on the hours forget about your life
Distribution (Current Employee), Romulus, MIJuly 1, 2014
Pros: hours
Cons: short breaks, insensitive management
I've learned that this job culture has a warped way of working ,.
This company as with most companies have become, that regimen of requiring the numbers to run good employees out the door , with job-work life balance your life can never be handled because you are always at work , and they are always under staffed. Employee recognition is at an Ultimate – more... low. Giving you a sense that the numbers matter and you as an employee don't. With the high turn overs with employees. And implementing a voice recognition system, time sensitive work , and management that doesn't realize the type of wok you do = a bad combination – less

Safety and Training Coordinator (Former Employee), WaunakeeJune 6, 2014
Pros: the culture
Cons: some long hours
The best part about Owens and Minor is the culture and your co-workers. It was one place I worked for that nearly everyone got along with each other. Employees like to do things together outside of work. The most enjoyable part of the job was that everyone does their part to get the job done, we could count on each other without question. The hardest – more... part about the job are sometimes you have to put in some long hours. – less

Owens & Minor Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee), Tolleson, AZJune 3, 2014
When I started at O&M customers were the main focus and every new technology we had revolved around the customer. Today everything is geared towards making the employees accountable and the customers secondary.

Order Selector/Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Hanover, VAApril 21, 2014
Worked the night shift, start at 3pm untill finished picking orders. Sometimes emploees would not get off untill 3am. Ride a cherry picker in the warehouse picking product for orders for customers using an RF Handheld. We all had to work as a team. Teamwork was very important. The hardest part of this job was the lack of rest a person would get from – more... working basically all day and all night. What I enjoyed about this job was the incentives for good work and hitting comapny goals. Also the relationship I had with coworkers. – less

Great teammates, exhausting long hours, POOR new management
Distribution Associate (Current Employee), Carol Stream, ILApril 3, 2014
Pros: 65" tv, great teammates and friends, 60+ hr. work weeks??
Cons: gone are family time, free lunch, holiday party! new management
Start the day with team meeting then off for a LONG work day. Each day in Carol Stream you can expect 13-15 hour days. You pick orders going to hospitals in Wi. and IL. When we were in Hanover Park it was great, everyone got along, had great hard working teammates, only worked 10 hour days and the team helped each other to get the work done. Then the – more... company decided to go into an RDC and consolidate 3 DC's into 1 with more space, product, equipment and teammates. Things fell apart and work hours exploded with the lack of training on new automation, new teammates hired, the getting away from verification of orders. Customers who were completely satisfied are now suffering the growing pains of this RDC. Swat teammates were brought in to help correct the downward spiral and train teammates on the automation and on picking orders properly. This helped slightly but apparently not fast enough for corporate? It has gotten so bad they put the GM on administrative leave then fired him? This man worked for O&M for 18yrs and was GM of the year and awarded DC of the year. Then came the termination of a manager, several supervisors and teammates. In which all have worked hard and tirelessly to keep productivity going and customers satisfied. O&M continually states that the teammates are the backbone of the company and them tosses people away because of their lack of for sight in planning. Sadly enough this has happened at other DC's around the country and odds are will continue in the future. I believed in the company and the management I served under in the past, but not the future.
Some of the posts you read here are from ex-teammates that were let go for various reasons and others that truly like the company. I used to be the latter but not anymore. I am not disgruntled but truly disgusted in the way we are moving forward with no consideration for any teammate!!

Warehouse Associate Full Time (Former Employee), Carol Stream, ILFebruary 11, 2014
Employees are Great!
Management is terrible,before moving into the new RDC everything was Great! Company should have done a better job of configuring everything before the big move! Too bad they decided to get rid of so many GREAT Employees, due to the matter, seems as if they want Bigger and Better, Should have looked over what mattered, to make their – more... business GROW, but lots of people seem to hate it, due to the new RDC and changing of hours put alot of them in a horrible spot. People do have lives, doesn't revolve around the company, Don't get me wrong it was fine at first but all the changes make employees want to quit/ or other reasons.. – less

Flexible, fast paced and autonomic work environment.
Process Improvement Specialist (Current Employee), Hanover, MDFebruary 4, 2014
As an employee who spends 40% of their day on a computer and the other 60% in a distribution center a typical day is fast paced and has new challenges on a daily basis. Picked up a corporate environment rather quickly. It is a very team oriented environment to the point where line workers and management pair together to accomplish company goals. The – more... hardest part of the job is being able to react to the whirlwind (day to day operations) on a daily basis but this is also the most enjoyable and rewarded part of the job as well. – less
