    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    It's a job if you're desperate.

    Cons

    No raises, blatantly lie to you about getting you a raise at end of your first year, low pay (way below average pay for our industry), long hours (over daily allowed driving hours/total work hours), trucks are not properly maintained, management refuses to get rid of racist employees and when the truck breaks down because they refuse to fix it...they write you up for it, threaten...

    Advice to Management

    Keep your word about yearly pay raises and fire people who openly are racist toward other employees.

    I have been working at Carter Lumber full-time

    Pros

    There really are no pros to working here.

    Cons

    Low pay. The company has no procedures or processes really in place. They do not train people. Their system needs a major update. Actually needs replacement. They are so behind the times.

    I worked at Carter Lumber for more than a year

    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.
