caraustar in hardeeville sc
Certified Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Hardeeville, SCApril 3, 2014
Pros: its a great company with great benefits
Cons: no discipline, people talk on phones and hide, nobody says anything like get to work, i just bust my but and do the right thing, wish we all could work togother, with out some trying to play others to do all the work.
its a great place to work when you have management that treats everyone fair . when management are good examples we learn to respect them more. But favoritism and no discipline well that's when things go down hill. I need a job where I can utilize my skills and advance forward.

Not a good place to work
employee (Current Employee), Randleman, NCNovember 5, 2013
When you get hired on, they promise things that never come around. When I started I was promised advancement within the company, three positions opened up and not one single person was moved up. When you ask questions, they lie, will not give you a straight answer, or void the question. They do not lead or call people into the office for disciplinary – more... actions, they do it in front of everybody, by yelling, or down grading you. They will not allow you to speak during this time, and when you do try to say something, they tell you to shut-up. They do not take the time to find out what happened they just go by another employee's remark whether it is fact or fiction. You run un-safe equipment that falls apart. When you get hurt the plant manager try's talking you out of going to the hospital, by saying scare tactics. – less

I enjoyed being able to rely on my coworkers for any assistance that I needed as well as I often assisted the products staff – more... whenever the Plant Supervisor asked. – less

A typical work day at Caraustar was working on a line packing cases off a line. It was a fun job but the hardest part was when we were switched to mandatory 3rd shift on 12 hour shift.

It was a fast pace work environment that I flourished in.
Material Handler (Former Employee), Cedar Springs, GaSeptember 23, 2012
Pros: got to learn a new advance system in the warehouse environment
Cons: the environment was hot because of the tubing process
A typical day consisted of pulling several work orders and following thru the process to get them out accordingly. I learned the advance tubing system process and was able to run the entire work place. Each day was a different challenge but I was able to get the job done working well with my co-workers. We worked long hours and the work was steady but – more... It was a worker friendly environment. – less
