I had a great manager that coached and helped quite a bit. Castle has gone through some financial difficulty but it is great to see that they are coming back strong.

Senior Buyer (Former Employee) –  Franklin Park, ILMay 16, 2017
Working here gives you so many opportunities for advancement you generally don't fine with other companies. They are always looking to make sure the staff whether office or in the plant are well taken care of.
