    Pros

    If you like being yelled at every 5 minutes then this is for you! If you like working 7 days a week, 12 hours a day, in a unfriendly and belligerent work environment, under a sociopathic manager, then this might be for you! DO YOU LIKE 84 HOUR A WEEK? Every week? Well, come on down! DO you like working around people who have to be medicated to maintain this work schedule? We need ya, and please bring the dro's cause...

    Pros

    None... Everybody jumping ship. Get rid of your Aiken so called Managers....

    Cons

    Aiken is no longer a team. Aiken Management doesn't care about their employees

    Advice to Management

    GET NEW MANAGEMENT IN AIKEN... THEY DONT WORK AS A TEAM.... THEY ARE A JOKE. CEO needs to make unannounced visits to find out what is really going on

    I worked at The Carlstar Group full-time

    Pros

    They are great at making you think everything is good, they should get an Oscar for their acting, have you thinking are doing a great job before pulling the rug out from under you...deceitful...cowardly...all of them. Tell you how they know things need to change and how they recognize all of your hard work then, bam, you're out the door with a box and confusion.

    Cons

    The management makes promises and change their mind without any type of warning, total disregard how their decisions can totally alter a person's life. They walk around like the kings of the world, and don't think their bad acts won't come back to haunt them...just beyond disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. When you find yourself on outside on the other side of door maybe you will see the light.
