Stale and stagnant, not much advancement opportunity
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Carlisle, PA – July 31, 2018
There are a lot of people who work at CCM who have been there for a very long time...20+ years, 30+ years However, they have been doing the exact same job for all those years. CCM prefers to bring in external hires versus promoting from within, in order to not shake things up. The rank and file coworkers are a solid and close knit bunch, but as seen with many big companies, upper management is very detached from the day to day operations.
Factory Worker (Former Employee) – Carlisle, PA – July 30, 2018
I really enjoyed my time at Carlisle Construction Materials. I cared about my job and how much I helped it succeed in the market. A typical day at work was busy and made time pass quickly. I learned the different types of rubber material used for roofing. The management was very good. They made sure that the employees knew who they were. The hardest part of the job is the dangerous conditions. There was a lot of heavy machinery and the air environment was not the cleanest. I enjoyed the people I worked with, we always had each others backs.
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Greenville, IL – July 1, 2018
Inspection department team leaders do not work. They are never in the department. Working every weekend is practically mandatory so kiss your family goodbye. Departments don't rotate like they should. Team leaders have their favorite pets. You will be overworked and undercompensated. Upper management turns a blind eye to it. Production numbers is more important than family life.

Carlisle Construction will offer good opportunities for entry level or continued career in manufacturing. There is strong teamwork shift to shift, however the hours can be tedious during busy seasons, a lot of overtime potential.
Central Regional Manager (Former Employee) – Wylie, TX – June 13, 2018
Carlisle CCW in Wylie is a great place to work. They want you to succeed. I left there a year ago and have regretted it ever since. The group in Wylie is supportive and fun to work with. When I was first starting my position there I was given a paid consultant to help mentor me and coach me to success. Not many companies do that! I felt a lot of stress in my new position and bailed out under the stress for another job with another company. Stupid move on my part. Had I been smart and gone to upper management for help I know for sure they would have worked with me to put me on the right track. Carlisle rewards you for working hard with great pay, great benefits, and in my case a company trip. I never felt micromanaged. The work is hard and the environment is competitive, but if you can handle the challenge then you will love working here.
Robot Operator (Current Employee) – Smithfield, PA – May 23, 2018
This job used to be great. We had some upper management leave, and brought new management in. They’re horrible. They have every weekend off, can come and go as they please. They get as many days off as they want with no repercussions, but God forbid an hourly employee needs time off. Management has their cliques of employees that they like and would do anything for. If you’re not one of those people, forget enjoying work there. The job is very easy, but management makes it not worth it at all. We’ve lost many full time employees this year alone, and can’t keep a Temp to save our lives. They can’t settle on a schedule to work so constantly make you work crazy hours and shifts. I do not recommend unless you desperately need a new job.
Maintenance Supervisor / Project Manager (Former Employee) – Tooele, UT – April 23, 2018
I enjoyed working for Carlisle as a Project Manager but when the economy turned down and Carlisle stopped spending capital money they put me in as a Maintenance Manager and that was not as fun. I like being in charge of Maintenance but the Building Manager and myself did not get along all that well. He actually went through three Maintenance Managers in three years counting myself.

Just could not seem to fit in with the Plant Manager
Warranty Alteration Administrator (Former Employee) – Carlisle, PA – March 19, 2018
This company has fantastic potential. Wow, mind blowing what this company could become. However, it is completely ruined by the poor management. The company also only hires family, friends or acquaintances of current employees. Basically, if you're not related to someone, you're not going anywhere in this company. The company is located outside of a rural area, so I understand the need for more educated and skilled employees. But, wow, what an opportunity this company could have if it would get out of it's "redneck culture".

Operator/Laborer (Former Employee) – Spanaway, WA – February 28, 2018
I would sign in, go to my locker and take off my jacket to change into at the end of the day. I'd learned to keep track of all my duties and record results through the day . Management kept me on a long leash and things ran smoothly every day. Everyone in charge knew what to do and they imparted their knowledge forthright, safety was clearly in mind everywhere as it's got shiny yellow tape everywhere to mark walkways and such. Bring thick skin, it's fiberglass and foam plus eps foam bead products.

Engineering Internship (Former Employee) – Carlisle, PA – October 18, 2017
My internship with Carlisle Construction Materials, LLC was the best opportunity to learn about how industry and engineering are combined. Working at CCM truly gives you a taste of acceptance and development. I worked with the Engineering team on many projects and obtained priceless knowledge about how an engineering team functions in the real world.
Production Operator (Current Employee) – Greenville, IL – July 18, 2017
Been a current employee for over five years now.. let's just say I see more of my coworkers than I do of my own family. No mention of SWING SHIFT in add. You have to wait 8 years to get another week of vacation. This means you only get 7 days to work with for 8 years because they take 4 for holiday shut down. The retention rate is horrible because of swing shift.
Operator (Current Employee) – Mead – June 13, 2017
I'm still new to Insulfoam-Carlisle Construction Materials but enjoy the fast paced environment. We have a pretty new management team and as a new person coming onboard it seems like a great place. I know that a group of original employees to make it difficult for new hires but management is very supportive overall. Definitely understaffed so lots of OT right now which we are told will die down eventually.
Night Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Lake City, FL – May 18, 2016
