    I worked at Caraustar full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked with caraustar for five years in various plants.Good benefits and somewhat decent pay. If you work your hard you can reach top pay fairly quickly. Coworkers are pretty cool and laid back for the most part.

    Cons

    Management makes you feel like you can move up In the chain but that rarely happens. Once topped out on pay your stuck there until it is time for cost of living raise, which is not even worth the struggle and dedication you put into the company. Management seems they do not really understand nor care what your daily struggle is on the particular machine your running nor do they try to fix the problem they just keep beating you down wanting improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and get off your high horses. Have some kind of incentive plan to make employees want to care and work harder. Dont make it impossible for employees to get the production you expect. Lastly understand the processes before jumping to conclusions.

    Location at the south end of town adjacent to railroad tracks made it very noisy
    Chemicals and materials used in the production process can have an unpleasant smell
