Production Worker (Current Employee) – Durant, OK – May 3, 2018
Always room to grow if you are willing to stick with it. If there is a problem ALL management will be working next to you. Never seen that anywhere else. 12 hours is long but lots of days off to do my side business. Profit share is an added bonus. Managers know my name and seem to care about us. Great place in Durant to work
Bender (Former Employee) – Waxahachie, TX – April 23, 2018
Manager is always rushing you to finish your tasks in an impossible time frame, looks at you like you’re stupid. They’re always short handed because nobody ever wants to work there so you’ll never be at home. You work hard and as fast as you can and only get ONE 30 minute break and when you tell them about it they complain and talk about you to everyone else so that tells you how much they appreciate their employees. If you work 12 hours you only get 2 additional 10 minutes breaks. You get paid every two weeks. They talk about people a lot, front desk people always talk about everyone else being lazy and talking about your job when all they do is sit in a chair all day and have no idea how stuff actually works. Have fun.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Mazomanie, WI – April 2, 2018
I worked here for quite some time. I started when the company opened. The people I trained advanced to management before I did. I worked 10 to 13 hours a day, 5 to 7 days a week for about 6 months and never took a day off and I asked for 10 cent raised and they said no.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Galt, CA – January 5, 2018
It is a shame that poor management is allowed in a company as big as Cardinal. I worked very hard there and was let go for absolutely no reason. Oh, they made one up but it was a lie. I can't understand why they don't appreciate good help doing their work.
Cannot stress enough how bad the management is, especially the IG department and the guys at the top. HR is awesome and the coworkers make for a good conversation. Work load is acceptable due to the pay but safety is a joke, they pretend to care until someone actually gets hurt.
Cold End Operator (Current Employee) – Winlock, washington – December 16, 2017
Pay is good after you have been there for awhile and profit sharing. But hours are long and suck. Management isn't bad on the lower level but higher up don't seem to care much about the low man on the ladder.
It was a productive workplace and contained very nice people
Packer (Current Employee) – Tomah, WI – September 3, 2017
I would recommend this job to someone is determined to make money. In my opinion I did not want to work at a factory my whole life, and I felt that if I stayed that I would never leave. The decision to leave was personal and had nothing to do with the industry it's self or the people working there.
Glass Handler (Former Employee) – Spring Green, WI – May 3, 2017
A typical day at work was breaking glass from table, then lifted piece of glass on to a crate. What I learned how to break glass, how to lift the glass, and pay attention to surroundings. The management has room to improve on listening to employees. The workplace culture was very stressful due to chance of glass shattering. The hardest part of the job would be working with the glass. The most enjoyable part of the job was the paid hour lunch.
