Temp employee (Current Employee) – Ohio – January 13, 2019
I have only been a temp for just over 3 months. The people are very helpful. I put in 8-10 hours a day(my choice), I work some Saturdays (my choice) Pay is not too bad. My Supervisor is way easy to get along with. I have noticed communication is terrible. For someone who needs a job to pay the bills, I would recommend this place as an option. The temp service is not very helpful in my opinion.
It's great...if your willing to go above and beyond.
Machine Operator/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Catoosa, OK – December 29, 2018
I worked at Carlisle for nearly a year. Upper management is very poor, and when it comes to leads, some are great and some dont do their job and often disappear for hours on end only to be found in the office on the computer looking at Ebay or even a few times, NSFW materials...Advancement is a thing but you need to be willing to work hard and communicate with your supervisor. The more machinery you know, the better. I received a large raise only 6 months into my employment. Your co workers tend to be pretty great, some of the best folks I've ever met, I met through Carlisle. However, I will express concern for the fact the plant manager is one of the worst people I have ever met. Grossly overweight and and likes to throw it around, and is just there to receive a salary. Would rather fire 8 people instead of working through plant issues. I've seen him on the shop floor once in my time there and he worked on machine that did everything for him...for about ten minutes before giving up and pulling a temp from their in progress work to finish up his work...which was abysmal. He treats temps like trash and refused to let HR give any kind of full hire to them even after working there for sometimes over a year. Simply to avoid having to give severance and benefits.
Over time, Good People, 3 Shifts.
Poor Managment, old machinery and lifts, full-hire promise after 3 months a joke.
Furnace Operator (Former Employee) – Catoosa, OK – December 4, 2018
I was told that we would work "some" Saturdays as overtime, that turned out to be almost every Saturday and most Sundays. The overtime pay was almost too good to turn down, but there was a feeling of the office doing the workers a personal favor by giving them a day off.
A few free lunches throughout the year, Ot, and flexible schedules
Heat set operator (Former Employee) – Catoosa, OK – November 4, 2018
Every quarter we get bounce check of 8.50% from what we get from our check. Every six month the company provides lunch. The managers and heads were equal to all people. The company provides waters, ice, juices and ice cream bars daily. Staff meeting quarterly.
Free lunch and yearly party and bonus and paid lunch hrs.
Safety Coordinator (Former Employee) – Catoosa, OK – November 2, 2018
My job was very fast paced which I enjoyed. I had several years of experience in manufacturing as a machine operator and trainer. I was promoted to Safety Coordinator and held that position for 11 years before the plant shut down and moved to Ohio.
Long term employees on the shop floor was some of the best people you would ever want to work with.

Global Compliance Officer (Former Employee) – Remote to cover all countries and US – April 2, 2018
Interfaced with Senior Management and they were reluctant to make much needed decisions. Constant change in personnel. People are usually overworked and have no idea what is expected of them. My position was dictated by the State Department, Commerce Department and Treasury. Procedures were established by what the regulations required. Trained the Empowered officials and Inteacted with Corporate Legal to accomplish the requirements.
The Compliance Team was excellent even though they had other primary duties.
