The merger needs improving
Pipefitter/Fabricator, Rigger (Former Employee) –  Hackberry, LAJuly 7, 2017
CBI is a good company but the merger with another nation messed the job up. They are placing young people in Supervision that should not be there yet.
Pros
Nice people
Cons
Short breaks

Great support staff
BHP/counselor (Current Employee) –  Mesa, AZJuly 3, 2017
CBI great staff to work with. Their substance abuse detox program has helped a lot of people overcome substance use by providing additional resources when they leave the program. As a clinician, I assessed, counseled, and provided resources for patients. As a transition counselor, I worked with outside agencies to help patients find long term placement and other supports.
Pros
Great co-workers and advancement opportunities
Cons
Lack of communication

Sales Support Administrator (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJune 21, 2017
The managerment style is very cut throat. There is a steady stream of new employees all the time. The direction and style of the company is not focused causing a lack of leadership and confusion.

good opurtunity to learn
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Walker, LAJune 8, 2017
The hardest part about this job would have to be learning everything at one time. Some times you are expected to pick up on things and sometimes you get a walk through on it. I have learned a lot from this company because I have applied myself to learning it. The management could be a little more easy going, but with a company that size it pays to be strict. The most enjoyable part about the job was the fact that everyone had a good attitude when it came to work. That alone makes working go smoothly and comfortable which causes more production.

good work place environment
Gen. Supt (Former Employee) –  Cartagana South AmericaApril 27, 2017
I found working with the middle management personnel to be satisfying and allowing multiple talents to be exercised. With midmanagement leader allowed to make decisions to use his subordinates talents the progress of activities would have advanced productivity.
Pros
got on project later than I would have liked to
Cons
limited over time to exercise major work schedules

RE: Chop Shop
Talent Acquisition Consultant (Former Employee) –  Newark, DEApril 20, 2017
CBI is a small company, horrible health insurance and low wages. There's no growth opportunity and business is extremely slow. This company is a "mom and pop shop". If you're interested in recruiting experience than apply and stay employed for two years with the hope of the owner can keep the doors opened/lights on. Employees that decided to resign learned they couldn't let the owner/manager know their new employer. They would try to stop the employee from getting a new job.
Pros
work experience
Cons
low wages, poor health insurance & chaotic work environment
