Contract Specialist (Former Employee) – Mechanicsvile, Va – July 18, 2018
We moved from Mechanicsvillle to downtown and they were trying to make things fun for us to relieve a little stress. It was a very friendly company to work for and they tried to be very fair about things.

Inventory Status Specialist (Current Employee) – Mechanicsville, VA – July 5, 2018
O&M is a dependable company, but the pay is very low, and the opportunities are not great. When being interviewed I was sold on cross-functionality, but I have done nothing but my own position. I have had 5 managers in less than 4 months.
People work hard, but it's swimming against the current
Warehouse Manager (Former Employee) – Ashland, VA – July 3, 2018
It was a great experience working at OM. The work that is done inside the warehouse directly impacts the operations in the hospital or care room. Accuracy is key in this industry as it is very important that the hospitals are receiving the correct items to service their patients.
will not say (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – July 1, 2018
the ware house manager seems to think if its not done the managers way it is not the right way. Manager is always in your face. manager does not trust any of the employees to do their job. manager has a habit of chasing off employees. Hence a really bad turn over rate.So if you want to work long tiring hours and be criticized for your work with low low pay then this is the place for you

I worked for Owens & Minor for many years in the office. It was a great place to work until new management decided to restructure.
Office (Current Employee) – Pennsylvania – June 7, 2018
The new management told all employees that if we could accept change all would be good. We didn’t know the change would be to relocate to Virginia to the CEC, Client Engagement Center. Management is adamant that it is not a call center. It is a call center. The company is losing many dedicated knowledgeable employees that cared about the customers. They are in the process of training new employees at the CEC to replace all the seasoned employees working at all the distribution centers. The customers will not receive the personalized service they deserve and in the end the company will lose business.
Decent pay, worked with a dedicated team at my location
New management doesn’t care how the changes are affecting the customers
Warehouse Coordinator (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – June 6, 2018
At Owens and Minor, we have to pick items for hospitals using a voice command system. We are scheduled to work 8 hour shifts but we can't leave until the work is done, so if it takes 10+ hours then we have to work the 10+ hours. It's good overtime but it sucks.
Warehouse Lead, Just In Time Dept (JIT) (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – May 31, 2018
With almost 13 years with the company I have seen many changes occur. Some of these changes for the better of the company and others not so much. The company used to be more for keeping your employees happy as well as the customers
