Inside Sales (Former Employee) – Addison, IL – June 8, 2015
The Cary Company has grown greatly in the past 10 years and it seems like that trend is going to continue. This is company holds onto it's family owned, small company feel as they quickly are becoming a medium sized company. The benefits are great. Everyone is very patient and helpful to new hires. On the downside, it is a very steep learning curve because of all the products they carry. Management understands this fact and are always willing to teach and help. All in all, I recommend working for The Cary Company!
Friendly environment, fun fridays, good all around business experience
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Addison, IL – June 23, 2015
You will not advance in this company. They only promote friends and family. Management has no idea what they are doing and the warehouse is falling apart. One of the Assistant manager just drives around on Golf Cart all day and plays clash of the titans on his Ipad, but yet yells at you if you are not working fast enough. Stay away from this place. You will not advance here, everyone is in their own little clicks and gossip. Only good thing is the free food every Friday.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Addison, IL – October 15, 2014
The Cary Company is a great place to work for. In my time there the warehouse had tripled its employees, which really shows they're doing something right. I personally didn't have much contact with the office personal but anytime I talked to them they were extremely nice and polite. Its definitely a family company with good values and exceptional people. No company is perfect and this one isn't by any means but they are striving to become a perfect company and in my opinion they are well on their way. The Cary Company really values their employees and you really get the feeling that your part of the Cary family as soon as you step foot in the door.
great people, fun fridays, company outings, low turn-over, good insurance

Don't expect to grow much with this company. They work off of close friendships and family connections. If you are not connected to the President's Son directly, you will go nowhere internally. The pay is low. For example, If you have a college degree in accounting you only be offered 12.00/ hr to start. They like cheap labor that is hard up for a job. Management is all family, So if you are looking for unlimited growth within the company..... this will not be the place for you, but if you are looking for a stable job at the very best with lots of rules, and regulations.... they hit the apply button.
They also like very crafty and creative minds. Graphic designers and young interns. the culture is somewhat "unique", and if you don't fit the bill, you will hate your job.
Lastly, They are and Idea based organization, but if you submit your ideas, they will not listen to you unless you are the Owners son.
summer activity's on fridays, low turnover, people are nice
no vacation for 1 full year, no sick days until 1 yr. of employment, people can be fake, and tons of gossip!!!
12.00/ hr to start and minimal growth, and that's with a 4 year degree
13.25/ hr to start with a 4 year degree in accounting, and that's if you have a connection to the owner
Trust me there are much better opportunities out there. keep LOOKING!!!

Solutions Provider, Customer Service, QA (Current Employee) – Addison, IL – February 26, 2012
The Cary Company is the kind of employer that many applicants think of when they picture their ideal workplace. You want a company with a solid foundation that's been around for awhile. At the same time you want to work in a progressive atmosphere where management will try new things and isn't afraid to push the envelope. The Cary Company strives to uphold both the traditional "old world" business values of taking care of their employees from both a professional and personal level while also fostering the aggressive forward thinking of a newly minted startup.
extensive new hire class room training, onboarding, and on the job instruction

If you love to keep busy, then this is the place for you. It is definitely a company that utilizes all of your talents, so you aren't stuck in just one role. There is never a dull moment. Management is extremely responsive to employee input, and it is impossible to NOT feel a part of the team. It was very easy to develop relationships with fellow coworkers, and there is always a lot of fun after work activities.
