    Forward driven company. Dispatch Dept is a great group of people.

    Covid our break. Hours cut because of Covid. It will be great when Carrol expands to where management is comfortable.

    Family Business for over 100 years

    Pros

    The company is small enough that you know everyone but big enough to get the job done. I had a good team to work with and my boss was always doing contests to drive results. The pay was pretty good and I worked day shift which I liked.

    Cons

    I disliked working weekends due to family commitments. Also Carroll Independent sold their residential heating oil and service business to Star Gas. My position was included in the sale and Carroll Home Services was created which is now totally separate from CIF.

    Generally good work experience over the 20+ year employment.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Steady job with good physical work environment. Company is still family owned and the management team tends value good employee relationships more than the typical corporate structure.

    Cons

    Long work hours and odd shift make for challenging social and family time. The shift work, from a practical standpoint, is unavoidable. But the long hours are not.

    Horrible Building & HR policies

    Apr 26, 2015 - Manager in Baltimore, MD
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    401K match better than most. Plenty of on-site parking. Mid-level managers caring and professional. Chairman is highly respected by staff.

    Cons

    As others have mentioned the building is old and dirty. There is a horrible odor that comes from the dairy across the street that is nauseating at times. HR does not enforce rules uniformly and turns blind eye to employees who smoke or drink on the premises. Ownership openly shows favoritism. Senior managers show no interest in professional development of staff. Severe morale problem among mid-level managers with the lack of career opportunity.

    Poor Location, Poor Benefits

    Apr 27, 2011 -  in Baltimore, MD

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    401k match for the first 6% which is hard to find, not required to work more than 40 hours a week except during winter fuel season. There is a company dog that walks around the offices

    Cons

    Dairy across the street smells TERRIBLE. Smell comes into the office. Office space is dirty and cramped. Benefits not comparable to similar industries. No flexible work schedules. Company adheres to handbook when it is convenient for them. (ie: employees allowed to smoke on premesis however handbook says its prohibited. Some employees allowed to work from home but it is against policy)

    Pros

    There are no pros to working for a company that only thinks about themselves. The owners don't treat people like family nor do they respect you.

    Cons

    Discriminates against LGBT. Told to terminate someone based on sexuality. How can they tell a person what they are or how they should live.
