    I wasn't that impressed with management.

    I worked at CLARCOR full-time

    Pros

    Tools I needed for my job were available without hesitation.

    Cons

    Purchased the company I worked for, came in and told everyone that no one would be losing their jobs and within ten days conducted a layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest... don't say things and make promises that you can't keep. I even knew when it was said that no one would lose their jobs it wouldn't be true. Don't insult the intelligence of the employees.

    I worked at CLARCOR full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I really enjoyed what I was doing.

    Cons

    Company kept such a tight control on the budget it was hard to create and/or move into new positions---even when those positions were needed. Everyone wore multiple hats and was expected to cover more than their typical "job description." This was great, in that you could branch out and learn more things but disappointing when if you had your sights set on higher goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better develop and utilize in-house talent.

    I have been working at CLARCOR full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoy the people I work with, both in-office and remotely at the various business units. I find my work challenging but manageable. We have a very nice office space with plenty of windows/natural light.

    Cons

    The culture is very old-school/traditional. With the new CEO things have eased up slightly - we are allowed to wear jeans on Fridays now, but the "business casual" dress code still applies to shoes/tops so it's not quite a "Casual Friday" atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the upper-management is extremely approachable. It was intimidating to be surrounded by VPs when I first began but everyone has proven to be very friendly.

    I worked at CLARCOR full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was a Stable job. Weekly pay was the best part! I Enjoyed work when things ran smoothly.

    Cons

    This pace is an absolute joke.
    -If you are a woman, there is NO opportunity for growth at all. They will jerk you around and tell you things you want to hear, then flat out deceive you and act like nothing happened.
    -IF you even get a raise, it will be about $0.30 every year.
    -Most management is awful. Even up to high floor management, will cuss, bash you in front of your department or to other employees, and yell at you but will deny it if you go to HR. Nothing is done to management but a slap on the wrist, if that. They will get rid of good employees who ask questions and try to get a better work environment.
    - Attendance policy is terrible.
    - HR doesn't care with NO open door policy. (They say they do, but having experience being harassed by upper management, HR did nothing to help me. )
    - Benefits are poor and so expensive.
    - job was very stressful because of terrible scheduling conflicts. We would often not have things needed to complete a job. Then we would be punished and told it was our fault for not changing over quick of enough.
    - lack of acknowledgement. No matter how good you do, it's almost impossible to get a "good job" out of anyone.
    - Machines are bad quality and break down often. Most are rigged and pieced together, and are very frustrating. Engineers would often be on the floor to improve machines, but wouldn't listen to a thing the operators, who work it everyday, had to say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix management problems and raise moral. I enjoyed the work, when everything went well, and tried my best when it wasn't but they don't seem to care for employees. Listen to employees and take advice of them.

    Pros

    Decent pay, good friends, manager was not bad, not that good either.

    Cons

    Laid off when downturn even the Chairman said they would not lay off sales people. Laid off without any warning, very short term outlook.
