fun work place if you like fast pace. short breaks but they are paid. the hardest part is learning how to talk to the voice location software. the best was knowing that what you were doing could save someones life.
contact, attend and provide the estimates to the client is done with satisfaction, existing a culture of commitment to the business. The development of the work is done in the estimated times. the management peovee the machinery and materials to perform the service and the security details.
Its the place where associates wasting time milking the overtime and do horrible job
Shift Lead (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – November 12, 2018
Poor management skills , they do lack of experience and they do not care about the money lost every day ( rcved wrong items , shipped extra , short ,wrong , losing customers ...etc) or the time being wasted ( the regular time and over time ) .........its a big fxxng joke , never worked in a place like that , associates watching movies on their phones while driving the forklift IN FRONT OF MANAGEMENT . if you do the job right or wrong doesn't matter coz no one cares . i do not recommend for anyone to work for this company at-least not in Denver .
you can do what ever you want, no one is watching you
Distribution Center Manager (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – November 6, 2018
I loved working at Owens & Minor, enjoyed our purpose. After 10 years I was a victim of change that did not make sense to me, I bled O&M red. I had taken on many projects and spent time away from home to assist other DC's on continuous improvement projects. Worked with great people at the time, from what I hear things are changing for the worst.
Not the company it used to be. Stopped being a company that cares about customers and Teammates. The new president is taking the outline Cardinal Used and is following it to the letter. Not a original thought in his head. No loyalty to team or vendors.
Human Resource Specialist (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – October 30, 2018
Typical day involved working with leadership to develop plan for the week and staffing needs. The changes in the company and local leadership required working on the basic needs and instruction on a yearly basis before being able to train on other needed skills.
Warehouse Coordinator (Former Employee) – Carol Stream, IL – October 28, 2018
The training sucks they have nothing implemented to train people management is about self doesn't care about there employees at all. The coworker were friendly long hours never kno whem y oui u going home.
Inventory Status Specialist (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – October 23, 2018
There are many roles in the company that make up the new center. These roles are entry level with not alot of advancement and little to none training. Not sure where the company will end up within the next 5 years with how it is now.
Stressful, work late, no work home balance, poor management
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Sumner, WA – October 20, 2018
Wasn’t a place to work if you wanted a good work home balance. At our DC we were severely understaffed and some of the people in higher position didn’t feel they needed to pull their weight. It really wasn’t the best job culture and there was definitely special treatment of certain employees.
Warehouse Coordinator (Current Employee) – Richland, MS – October 12, 2018
Enjoyed working at different Owens & Minor locations...The one in Richland,Ms...is honestly terrible...no advancement...only certain people work...management is horrible....enjoyed my teammates n supervisor.. only reason I stayed as long as I did...
The people that actually work have controlled breaks...everyone comes n goes as they please
medical product recalls, 42 dc's across the US product complaints. all lot and teammate tracking programs, audits internal and FDA for the distribution center. hardest part is lack of communication among other areas. enjoyable part is traveling to all states with out leaving my desk, while working with all states concerning product complaints that our company distributes through 42 DC's
Terrible management, Too much overtime due to lack of hiring.
Shipping Coordinator (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – September 23, 2018
Management refuses to listen to any suggestions that would help make processes more efficient. Work 12+ hours on most days because the company won't hire the people needed in order to make the deliveries needed.
