Will work long hours
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNMay 12, 2018
Typical low pay and work until job is complete on third shift.1st shift doesnt work over time if they dont want to. 2nd shift stays sometimes and the workers usually slack off when third shift come in. 3rd shift stays until the work is done and you have to finish 2nd shift work before you start on thirds work. Management supports messy employees who are permanent. This department is ortho picking. The pay is 10.61 for material handlers. You will walk at least 10 miles a day in steal toes. This is the holmes location.
Pros
Plenty of over time
Cons
Management is horrible

Company is slow on meeting and adapting to the current extremites market place.

- Ensure that all necessary instruments for procedures are available and sterilized in the hospital prior to surgery.
- Learned different implants and their uses. Made relationships with surgeons while assisting with surgery.
- Long hours and long days
- No room for growth
- Management has no regards to personal lives and paying their employees a competitive pay for this job.

Corporate atmosphere brings various mandatory compliance classes and structured environment. Understanding local managers act as great buffers to separated corporate "big-wigs," and provide a friendly and understanding atmosphere.

Horrible company
Employee (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNMarch 9, 2018
Smith & Nephew cares more about quantity over quality. I would not recommend working here. Unprofessional and unqualified managers and supervisors. Poor work environment. HR does not take complaints seriously.

Terrible place to work - not very employee or customer oriented
Senior Executive Assistant to General Manager (Former Employee) –  Mansfield, MAMarch 6, 2018
Terrible place to work - HR organization is incompentent and it is not a very employee oriented organization. It was not a collaborative environment - people did not help each other they competed against each other and rather than help you in your job support organizations tried to be an obstacle. Overall, an exhausting and unfulfilling experience.

None
