    I worked at Sam Carbis Solutions Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The owners care about themselves and will often shop online during their meetings while you are responding to their questions.

    Cons

    Changes everyday which leads me to believe they're ignorant in how to manage the company.

    Pay structure changed so they keep more money and don't have to pay us overtime.

    The vast majority of employees despise this place. It's an unhealthy work environment. I can't imagine a worse place to work outside of slavery.

    Advice to Management

    Fire me so I'll be forced to find another job.

    Pros

    Good people to work with

    Cons

    The only people who get paid what they deserve are the people the plant manager likes on a personal level. How hard you work at Carbis is irrelevant because you do not get paid based on your work ethic. They do not value their employees nor do they care to hear any input you may have regarding production. The dogs are provided with heat and air yet the employees are not.

    Advice to Management

    Base raises on work and attendance instead of skin color and personal relationships. The production workers have good ideas to help better production and we are not all idiots so please stop treating us and speaking to us as such. Keep your word and actually acknowledge tier sheets

    Pros

    There are some good people that work here, but they're going fast.
    We have a good product.
    The job is rewarding.
    Good job experience, working here will set me up for a career with somebody else in this industry.

    Cons

    It is amazing the amount of talented and good employees this company will fire for no reason.
    Well the product is good, the service is notoriously awful. Customers often regret decide to order from us.
    Employees often feel like ponds in a game of chess, expendable and not very empowered.

    Advice to Management

    Advice, opinions, or suggestions are viewed as attacks.

    Pros

    Some of the people in the shop are good people. No supervision in the shop. You can do what ever you want.

    Cons

    No accountability anywhere in the company. Pay is below average. The supervisors have different rules for different employees. No worth even considering for employment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what really matters.

    Pros

    I guess you could say "It's a Paycheck"

    Cons

    A lower value is placed on employees than the broken down equipment.
    A time limit is given employees for every job and heaven help you if you run over by even 5 minutes. One size fits all mentality. Suck up to the "family" and you get ahead even if you haven't a clue. If you are a suck up woman you have it made. (this one could have gone in the Pros section depending on your gender. If you're a male you have a target on your back if you complain.

    Advice to Management

    Just shut the place down and be done with it.

    Pros

    Potentially large sales opportunities that could approach $1 million.

    Cons

    Entrenched ownership and management, "flip/flop sales/support approach and changing disciplines at the drop of a hat." Massive turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the experience.

    Pros

    On Glassdoor you will always see a mix bag of reviews (some good, some bad). From my expereince I can say Sam Carbis Solutions Group does look after dedicated employees. I recently had a family emergency that meant I needed to fly to England at the last minute. After returning I had to fly back within the week. I contacted the President to explain my situation. There was never a question about taking time off. I was told to take off to be with my family and not to think about it. This shows me that if you are dedicated and a hard worker it is noticed. Carbs will look after you when it really matters.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons.

    Pros

    The company culture in this organization fosters an environment allowing individual growth and excellence. Whether or not the employees take advantage is up to the individual.

    Cons

    As with any manufacturing and technical organization there are ebbs and flows. During busier times of the year its great but this may create some tension during downtime while expectations never dropped from the good times based on market conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and understand your valued employees realize you appreciate loyalty as they strive to make you appreciative of their efforts.

    Pros

    There are people that want to make a difference, a change , and build this company of 4 generations back strong again.

    Cons

    You can't make things better if the staff in charge already have the answer but don't know the question yet. You will not be able to full evey person that comes along with big words and no results or action. In short, it's sad to see it going this way.

    Advice to Management

    What could anyone possibly say that you have not already heard. So I will just simply say my prayers are with you and your family.
