Used to be a great place, now no one is secure
PURCHASING ANALYST (Current Employee) – Carol Stream, IL – April 20, 2018
We used to have an amazing GM before we move to this new regional facility. Now we are on our 5th. Company has cut a lot of jobs, and is centralizing to Richmond, VA. So in an office that once had almost 100 people, there will be 10. Although medical distribution is cyclical in that every 3 to 5 years hospitals change distributors, then come back, it seems that this down cycle will last a lot longer than the ones before. The warehouse is overworked, understaffed, and retention is a nightmare. If management would care just a little about those in the warehouse, retention, production, safety, and morale would all increase. Errors would decrease and customers would stay. Definitely oversimplified, but true non-the-less. I really hope this company turns things around and it becomes a good place to work, but until then, I am definitely looking.
Warehouse: all the overtime you can handle. Office: 8 and skate
Warehouse: too many to list Office: no one is left and who knows how long we will be here
