Close to home - good people to work with
Accounts Receivable Coordinator (Current Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – February 17, 2016
The job is repetitive and boring, and the pay was lower than it should be. But it was close to home and the people are really nice. Benefits were pretty good and reasonable priced, however they have a very inflexible points based attendance system. Something I found strange is that they gave you sick days, but then you were penalized with attendance points against you if you used the sick days. This resulted in lots of people coming to work sick and spreading their germs.
Owens & Minor used to pride itself on not laying off employees. However, with a new CEO this is no longer the case. The Accounts Receivable Department was advised in December, 2015 that all Accounts Receivable jobs would be centralized to Chicago & Allentown, PA. It seems this will also be the case for Customer Service and Purchasing departments - although it has not yet been formally announced.
