If you are a Hard Worker you will love Carver Companies
Warehouse / administrator (Former Employee) –  Charleston, SCMarch 28, 2018
Carver Companies is fast paced, but the benefits are more than generous. Carver works hard to ensure all his employees are paid well, and have a retirement. People complain about the hours in some of the reviews, but you are paid accordingly. It is hard work with a lot of rewards. I loved working there. It is the best company I have ever worked for, fair, kind, and family oriented.
Pros
Good Benefits and Retirement
Cons
Long hours

Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Charleston, SCDecember 5, 2017
being a smaller company you would figure while working your tail off someone would appreciate it. the owner of the company is awesome. he will work all day right beside you, doesn't matter what your doing. current managers, they need to learn to appreciate their employees before all the good ones leave. and when you work your butt off and do a good job always volunteering to work when no one else does you get let go after busting your butt off for the ungrateful pricks.
Pros
alot of hours
Cons
no time for your family

Fast paced company with room for growth within the company
Sweeper Driver (Current Employee) –  Altamont, NYSeptember 22, 2017
Canaday Sweepers is a fast paced company in which employees are expected to complete their run in a reasonable time frame on their assigned shifts. Most employees work between 4-5 days a week anywhere from 9-12 hours a day. Overtime is offered to employees who prove they can handle the tasks given to them by our friendly and understanding dispatcher, supervisor, and managers. Vehicles are maintained when and if problems arise while on shift. No issues while working there, any and all questions are answered in a timely fashion by supervisors and other senior employees with over 1 year on the job. I enjoy this job very much and I look forward to hopefully moving up within the company in due time.
Pros
Reasonable hours, polite management
Cons
required to work in all forms of weather

Stay away unless you want no life!
Street Sweeper (Current Employee) –  Altamont, NYMay 31, 2017
You work anywhere from 5-7 days a week overnights from like 8pm to 9am. They promise 2 days off a week however you rarely get them and even more rare is two consecutive days off. Often times you get called at 4pm while sleeping to goto work to find out that your going to be off that night. Management can be harsh and on the night shift only 1 person has been there over a year and 3 less than 4 months. Very high turnover.
Pros
Easy work and your on your own
Cons
Weekends, never know your day off

Unprofessional management
Landscaper (Former Employee) –  Altamont, NYMarch 3, 2017
Fast paced and fun at first, then you find out most of management is related and you see how they work together to keep themselves afloat while in all reality they couldn't care less about the employee and physical limitations. I strongly urge anyone applying to this company to take a second and reconsider
Pros
Friendly hardworking people

Productive and fast paced work environment
Director of Operations (Current Employee) –  Coeymans, NYMarch 22, 2016
Working for Carver companies is an always changing fast paced environment. It is a diverse group of companies with great opportunity for growth and future success as a career not just a job. It is a company that strives to be best and is always looking for people that are or have the desire to be the best at what they do. As an employee you are constantly challenged and pushed to meet and exceed the companies as well as your own goals and expectations. Working for this company is very rewarding and each employee is challenged to go as far as they'd like to go with limitless opportunities and constant growth.
