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

    Pros

    Lower level coworkers are generally decent folks.

    Cons

    I've been to most of their Michigan and Ohio locations as a customer, supplier and employee, they all seem to be the same. First and foremost, the management staff are the worst part. They sometimes pretend to care, but their actions don't reflect that at all. When I was employed there, they fired three new guys, two for very minor infractions, and one who was a veteran with minor ptsd issues. There is minimal professionalism...

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better. Most of your employees are on a first name basis with your customers. When your people don't hate their job, they treat the customer better. When the customer gets taken care of , they buy more and provide word-of-mouth advertising. Which will increase the bottom line you care so much about.

    I worked at Carter Lumber

    Pros

    i guess it is a good job if you are in college like i am. just a low paying but steady job to get you through.

    Cons

    it shut down and left me jobless. any other higher positions were taken and did not need any others, so i was nowhere near a promotion. the management sucked,

    Advice to Management

    corporate needs to step it up. if the right people were running this and taking risks and making right decisions along with the correct and right amount of advertising carter lumber would be the absolute best lumber company in the u.s. i believe even better than home depot! if i was in the family/owner of carter lumber i know the 1st changes i would be making!!!
