rather not say (Current Employee) – St Augustine – November 25, 2015
I presently work at the St Augustine Carlisle and I see plenty of co-workers that try to get people in trouble, I guess it makes them feel good to get someone pointed or fired. I work here because I can't find another job in my area, and I just can't quit. First shift is the worst, the people are nasty and the Leads and Cell Manager get angry all the time if something goes wrong they look for the employee that did it. Working 3rd is quiet and not as stressful but it's hard on the body to stay up through the night. Now they want the employees to learn 3 different positions even if they are totally satisfied with what they are presently doing. I think it should be up to the employee but than they won't give you a better raise, which is most likely 5 cents more an hour! The Safety Teams they want you to sign and the Kaizan Events they want you to be in to boost up your salary as well. This place is also very unfair they hire new people in to be Leads rather than looking within first. I see sons of the big wigs getting hired to do the best paying postions and it just makes me sick! The favorites of the Cell Manager and the Lead get special treatment as well.
earning time off
short breaks and unfairness they don't care about what you want
Manufacturing Lead (Former Employee) – Saint Augustine, FL – October 7, 2015
Great Benefits, not so great with consistency. Leadership is not as versed at compliments as they should be. Great place to work if you are not looking for immediate advancement or if you are looking to go in get your job done and head home.
QA (Former Employee) – Franklin, WI – May 18, 2016
In my short time with the company there were no less than 5 professionals walked out the door under the premise they didn't fit in. Further the management team for the most part is unhelpful in learning the COS and procedures. This is not true across the board but with the major management players don't know how to manage.
Pay is competitive, leadership training
Self serving management, no real management support, 70 hour weeks, totally OTD driven
Assembler (temp) (Former Employee) – Cerritos, CA – October 15, 2014
Management is always on the floor but the floor is in total disarray. Leads have no clue about what they are doing, when I asked a question they had no answer. They spoke Spanish all the time so i was often left out of the loop. Coworkers were awesome built great friendships while i was there. When speaking to other workers about the job i was often told the raises were .10 cents and no profit sharing or bonuses. Its no wonder why they almost closed the door s in Jan they have a high scrap rate and management has no clue how to stop it. The floor supervisor would would actually time your restroom visit and yell out you took 10 minutes in the restroom. Often times i seen them treating non Spanish speaking employees bad. I told one that if he did choose to file a complaint i would go with as to what i seen and heard.
Training Specialist (Current Employee) – Saint Augustine, FL – April 26, 2016
As training specialist, development and delivery of operator training was an overall rewarding experience. A typical day at work involved assessing training needs and continuously updating employee training.
Kaizen Events impacted the overall state of the factory for the better
Management could benefit from some positive leadership and behavioral training courses.
Work on fiber optic cables test and build to customer drawing. Learned how to build fiber optic cables in an efficient way. Forgiving management team. great coworkers everyone likes helping each other. hardest part is keeping dust off fiber area. always face with a new challenge every day.
Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee) – Saint Augustine, FL – December 22, 2014
Employed for about 3 months; I applied for 3rd shift but was trained on 1st shift for 2 of those months. Management wanted to "cross train" me, which was fine, but it is quite rough to jump between schedules like that. There is a huge focus on safety there, but not enough on training. Basically you just get stuck shadowing someone who is already doing the job. Sometimes they've been doing it for decades and understand a lot, sometimes they've been doing it for a few weeks and everything they tell you is completely wrong. (I experienced both these situations!) Management was really great but couldn't help me to get another shift when I had issues being bounced around/working graveyard. Workload was very light most of the time, and you end up standing around trying to look busy more than actually doing your job. After benefits, 401k and taxes, your take home pay was pretty low, even after a shift differential. It's fine if you're in need, but doesn't seem to offer much advancement/pay raises. I didn't stay long enough for the yearly raise, but it sounds like it would barely beat out inflation.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Saint Augustine, FL – August 4, 2013
Working at Carlisle is a learning experience. You learn how to deal with the way other people work doing the same thing as you, and learn to work around other people's working habits to fit your needs for the job. Management is not the best I have seen at Carlisle. All shifts are against each other, but preach "Teamwork". Co-workers are all against each other, as well. Both co-workers and some of the management are very quick to throw you under the bus for things that others have done. Co-workers and management are quick to set employees up for failure.

very demanding for what you get paid , management manages by fear you mess up your a bad employee and they have a board for bad employees ,training is stressful and too much compacted in a week not enough hands on tool word of advise think twice about working here
Carlisle Operating System Manager (Current Employee) – El Segundo, CA – January 30, 2013
A typical day is spent driving to improve recurring problems. Working to prioritize the impact of activities by the dollar. Constantly bringing people together to make team work second nature. And striving to sustain improvements to build a sense of reliability from the continous improvement initiatives. Good Pay. Good environment to learn lean and to learn business management.
expense reporting, benefits, growth opportunities, good people, good director
work and family life balance, some resistance to change
Lead Trainer (Former Employee) – Saint Augustine, FL – January 20, 2016
The work day started at 7am, usually had a morning meeting of whats was going on in the building. We went over how to prevent accidents in the work place mainly. Co-workers were easy to work with. I would say the hardest part of the job was the 15 minute lunch break. The most enjoyable is that we got along like family and were more than happy to help each other a real sense of team work.
TEST ENGEENERING TECHINICIAN II (Former Employee) – Kent, WA – February 18, 2015
Very rough place to work, long hours, underpaid and lacks proper management. Work depends on who you know rather than what you know and favoritism runs unchecked. Very steady source of income with a high turn over rate of engineers and management.
