    Pros

    Its work and you get a paycheck if you need it.

    Cons

    Extremely stressful, consistent injuries and accidents due to production expectations and management pushing employees to produce, bad turnover rate, very political management culture, management is under-payed. Corporate dictates when departments must take payed vacation time.

    Advice to Management

    Invest and update equipment to better handle production needs instead of letting go of employees to lower production costs and pocket end of year bonuses

    I worked at Carpenter Co. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Insurence schedule benefits and pay

    Cons

    Job got bumped on Friday morning was told by other employees management did not offer me a job until the last minute they said a week before I was safe and then they bumped me right out the door I have never heard of such thing before with bumping people I think it was an excuse to get rid of me .

    Advice to Management

    If you don't like someone get some training on how to respect employees instead of bumping them out the door at the last minute they knew what I needed and how much I needed my job and I have to drive by that place every day knowing I use to work there have a heart instead of hate.

    Good health care plan. Can't come up with more pros...

    Extreme Micromanagement. No transparency with employees. No 401K match.

    Merit raises, not one size fits all. Invest in larger inventories, and implement newer equipment that can handle increased sales volumes.

    I worked at Carpenter Co. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fairly Stable, decent benefits. Review requires 5 words but 4 is all I can scratch together for positives.

    Cons

    Owner is CRAZY and causes people to run scared or leave. Management are elitist, irrational, and condescending (in general). I have never seen a company turn their nose up at ideas that would easily increase profitability and then turn around and WASTE in so many ways (certainly not on staff).

    Advice to Management

    Tried that, makes no difference.
