Proud Military Employer of Choice
Owens & Minor is proud to work with our nation's veterans and active-duty military members. Our current and former military teammates exemplify our IDEAL values across every level of the organization. We provide a range of benefits and support for service members and veterans.
Veterans and military service members are a valued part of our workforce, not only because of qualities like accountability, collaboration, and leadership, but because of their vast professional abilities. The skills learned in the military prepared you to be successful both during active duty and after. Use the tool below to translate the skills you earned serving the military into civilian professional qualifications that match up to our open positions.
Learn More About Our Military Veteran Benefits:
- Paid time off for Guard and Reserve duty on top of vacation and sick leave.
- Veteran Resources Group- attracts and develops those who have served in the Armed Forces.
- We offer support during military leaves: (1) 100% base pay for the first 2 weeks (regardless of miliary pay) and (2) after the 2 weeks, there's salary differential if the military pay is less than the O&M pay. The pay is for up to 26 weeks, including the first 2 weeks paid at 100%.
I believe the benefit to Veterans here at Owens & Minor is in the realization of job satisfaction while supporting a mission that is just as important as defending our country. Owens & Minor has a culture that brings out a sense of pride within the teammate ranks and genuine appreciation by leadership around our accomplishments.

Diversity & Inclusion
At Owens & Minor, we value Diversity & Inclusion and seek to create an environment where every teammate feels valued and that they belong. Diversity means that we retain, develop, attract and advocate for all teammates. We welcome diversity of any kind – including race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation as well as diversity of thought, experiences and skills. Inclusion helps to ensure all teammates are fully immersed in our Owens & Minor culture and that we value and acknowledge the contributions of all. Diversity and Inclusion is not a project or a point in time discussion. Truly building a diverse and inclusive workplace takes dedication and a long-term commitment to live our IDEAL values and to bring our authentic selves to work each and every day.
In partnership with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), we are working to make our opportunities more visible to students and alumni. As we continually seek to increase the diversity of talent within O&M, we maintain relationships with the HBCU career centers and student bodies through networking events, career development workshops, alumni networking, and internship and career fairs. Just as we empower our customers to advance healthcare, we want to empower HBCU students and alumni to advance their careers.
My HBCU education gave me exposure to diversity of perspective early on. Having that experience has been extremely valuable while helping teammates with a range of backgrounds come on board in our Distribution Center. It's a fun and rewarding environment, and I love getting to experience different Human Resources functions as a part of my role.
