    Pros

    There are some nice people you will get to work with. Far and few through.

    Let supervisor bully their staff. Supervisor does no work, likes to make like the do. Systems are so outdated. Overworked. Management does not appreciate what people do.

    Advice to Management

    Look real hard at what your supervisor do.

      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Carter Lumber full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      There are ZERO pros to working for this company. You will regret working for them as I did.

      Cons

      Management has ZERO clue what they're doing. They play favorites and if you're not one of the favorites, they will screw you over. Completely dysfunctional, back stabbing, drama filled environment. Not to mention the low quality products.

      Advice to Management

      Get some people with a brain to manage the company.
