Once there is some stability in the front office it will be a great place to work. Until then it's an uphill battle. Benefits are top notch which is one of the great things about Carboline.

Good because you will never think about this job after you leave, it's kind of like working in prison and when you leave, you just leave it all behind and totally forget about it until you have to go back. I've never been to prison but working there is what I think free time or a prison job would be like.
Bad because you will likely never move up. 50% of the crowd here has no ambition but to survive and get out of prison at the end of their shift. The other 50% are constantly applying for other plants. Everyone there is looking to either leave or just not get fired.
Pros
Leave work at work
Cons
Feels like what I think a prison would be like

Work sometimes 6 days a week, and if your not someone's favorite you wont advance, there are people who shouldn't be working there but are do to favoritism. Everyone is a backstabber and will turn on you the first chance they get.

Fast paced work environment with little to no recognition. Compensation and benefits are decent. Management lacks proper training and professionalism.

The company was one of the best I ever worked for both financially and personally for 8.75 of the 10 years I was there. A change in leadership removed much of the morale and prompted my departure. My understanding is leadership has changed again and it has become a more desirable place to work.

Looking for a starting point for a career? Come build experience with Carboline. Decent benefits for health, dental, and vision. Earned time-off and holiday pay are more perks to the job. The retirement package is fairly weak and the financial growth an employee can expect either based on time served or performance are abysmal. This is place is still a great opportunity for anyone getting his/her start.
Pros
weekly paycheck, 40 hour, medical, dental, vision, holiday pay, paid time-off
Cons
weak retirement, no growth after 2 years

Newest CEO has implemented monthly 'Town Hall Meetings' where all employees are provided information on the company's monthly and YTD progress.

Company has purchased several smaller entities and successfully rolled them into our current reporting structure.

Good company with a lot of good small perks, but certainly needs to get with the times. CEO at the time was not smart nor was he engaging. I am sure with him being gone the company is in a much better spot.

Nice place to work but controlled by the parent company. The company was once a private entity and had more control of its processes but that has change in the recent years and more is being directed by the corporate office

Compensation is terrible and they look for salespeople to acquire new accounts. The corporate atmosphere is a boys club and is very dated with corporate culture.
