    Fair compensation, above average benefits. Extensive training program. Perks beyond wages and benefits.

    Administrative paperwork system archaic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update to this century and move to an internet or WLAN system of handling administrative paperwork.

    Pros

    None that I know of

    Cons

    Won't hire any one over 40 no matter your experience they will just say where interested in another applicant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More experience is a great asset just because you want your employees to work 50-60 hrs a week dies not mean a forty year old can't do it

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers, high accountability keeps production levels high a corrects mistakes before they get out of hand. Pay is good, Team system and territory works well. Company van & special tools. Work from home, flexible hours, good training.

    Cons

    Customer Service Reps. (CSR's) take it in the shorts. Too broad of territory. Unable to stay on top of customer issues until it's too late. Field Service Tech's are expected to be Techs, Salesmen, Complaint Department, CSR, Numbers Chasers and still fix the forklifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a "SOP" Standard Operating Plan and stick to it. Don't talk out of both sides of mouth, be honest about the numbers, allow the employee to score high on their reviews. Give quarterly bonuses instead of letting the teams bust their but for 12 months and because goals weren't met in one quarter they get nothing.

    Pros

    Profit sharing is great, once established, company works with personal situations, all the overtime you want.

    Cons

    Reviews are not realistic as they will not give the highest score since they feel like no one is perfect. Favoritism is shown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be helpful if a fingerprint was left every time an employee touched a file. Employees can manipulate files and point fingers back at other employees in order to sabotage someone's work.

    I worked at Carolina Handling full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Unlimited overtime when available, honor system time card, company van and special tools, every day is different. Team based work force. Benefits are good. Flexible hours. Pay is good.

    Cons

    Very "numbers conscious " like most profitable companies. Every minute you work must be accounted for. A lot of pressure to increase your production. Bonus plan is in place but goals are set so high, it's unlikely you will obtain them. In order to keep your quality people have options in place when the physical part of being a field technician becomes difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of "Yearly" bonuses, create a quarterly or monthly bonus plan like most profitable companies. Compensate Field Service Supervisors and CSRs better.

    I worked at Carolina Handling

    Pros

    You have a Company vehicle,and you do not in an office. When i was there we had a company meeting every year.

    Cons

    If there is no work to do you do not get paid. I had to use vacation time to make my hours when things were slow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I dont have much advice for the management. I would say update the technology you have in the field. Computers instead of paper

    I worked at Carolina Handling

    Pros

    The pay is good and the company van was very nice. The associate has very good and adequate resources to do the job and the 401k matching was excellent.

    Cons

    Poor management of the associates. Associates were looked at as numbers rather than people. I thought the company was run well before equity partners were made. After that happened, this company changed its core values that focused on the customer and the associates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your associates with respect and listen to their needs
