    I have been working at Carter Lumber full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good company, great guys, new equipment. Opportunity to grow within.

    Cons

    Not to many cons. Micromanaged a little. Even when it's slow you work 50+ hours a week. Pay could be better but it's still nothing to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepin on. Management in the store I directly work in isn't bad I have no recommendations to offer.

    I have been working at Carter Lumber full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    As a OSR they did provide gas card and vehicle allowance. Large company with multiple locations to work from.

    Cons

    No loyalty, bad management and very top heavy. They lean on lower level people and middle management gets paid very well. Fire people as soon as they under perform.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to some of your workers. Be a little more openminded to some change and treat them better. They have a lot of solutions to issues the company has if you would hear them out.

    Pros

    Plenty of hours, something new everyday, got to interact with people on job sites.

    Cons

    Low pay, they never give raises, and they work you like a dog. They expect you to do jobs that would take 3 workers by yourself. The management is terrible, and are very rude. They are your best friend until you decide to pursue other job opportunities.
