Not a bad place to work, but they have a lot to work on.
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Carol Stream, ILMay 11, 2018
All companies have their ups and downs right now they're at a low. They need to figure out how to regain the interest of the employees. How to bring new ones in and retain the ones they have.

Typical Day
Accounts Receivable Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Allentown, PAMay 11, 2018
A typical day at work results in reviewing emails received from customer and responding in a timely manner. Assisting them with research on payments or invoices whether it is pricing or something I can handle in my department. I will send the information to the correct department if i am unable to help them.

warehouse lift equipment operator (Current Employee) –  Gainesville, FLMay 6, 2018
The job is simple and fast paced. For the new employees the schedules are very bad and stressful, after some time things get better. The managers are fair and treat people with respect.
Pros
Clean building with Air Conditioner
Cons
Many times workers have to work past 8 hours until job gets done.

Used to be a great place, now no one is secure
PURCHASING ANALYST (Current Employee) –  Carol Stream, ILApril 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.
Pros
Warehouse: all the overtime you can handle. Office: 8 and skate
Cons
Warehouse: too many to list Office: no one is left and who knows how long we will be here

Revolving door
Lead (Former Employee) –  Hebron, KYApril 11, 2018
Had a unique position with O&M years ago but the support from management at that time was questionable. It was a revolving door of management type people from different parts of the region coming and going to oversee our operation in town. Very unpredictable at times. For years they mentioned building a warehouse here in town but never thought it would actually happen.
Pros
Pay, benefits
Cons
Attendance policy was horrible made it hard to get rid of system players. Hopefully it has changed!

Horrible place to work
Contract Specialist (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMApril 10, 2018
Enjoyed the work and learning experience. Upper Management created and perpetuated a hostile work environment. Local management created an environment of favoritism and hostility. There was a culture of "throwing each other under the bus" to save one's own job. No teamwork. People stopped trusting each other. It was horrible. I've never seen anything like it, or worked in an office like it.
Pros
Learning experience and some co-workers.
Cons
Hostile work environment created by all management.

Supply Chain Specialist (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 10, 2018
Constant turnover due to incompetent leadership and failure to innovate and adapt with competitors. Job stability was always an issue unless you were a higher up employee.

I enjoyed my time at O&M. The people I worked with were awesome! It's a hard, fast paced environment. Not for everyone, but if you like being busy, its the spot for you.
