Cardinal shower enclosures is a great place to work. Theyre more of a family than they are just co workers. The pay is good and as long as your attendance and work ethic are where they need to be they are always willing to work with you.

Out of the four years I worked for HMI Cardinal only the first year was enjoyable. After managment changed the company became more and more difficult to work for. Tasks that were once handled by other departments were handed off to drivers and no additional time was given to accomplish said new tasks. Furthermore managment became more and more indifferent to the needs of the drivers.

Billing is nothing more than data entry. Daily overtime, sometimes mandatory. Repetitious and boring work. No training to speak of. They just expect you to figure it out as you go. Billing supervisor is a nice man, but the job itself is terrible.
Pros
Vacation can be taken hourly.
Cons
Repetitious work.

After clocking in at 8:00 AM each day the file clerks would check for faxes and sort them and send them to the various departments where they went to.Then searched the files on computer to send them to various sales people when requested and then filed documents away when sales people finished with them.

After they were bought out things started changing people were quitting or getting fired. They expect you to work 60 plus hours a week and doesn't care if you get to spend any time with your family. Management only cares about them selves and they play favoritism. Not a great place to work anymore don't even bother trying.

New company bought cardinal and everything went downhill. Started implementing unnecessary rules that made the workplace unbearable for the low pay. Do not care about employee moral, management does whatever they want and thinks buying pizza once every few months makes up for it. Management doesn’t communicate well with each other or the employees. It just sucks there.

Management played favoritism very very frequently.
Material was hard to come by for at least 7 months so production in the shop went down as result.

Sick days and Vacation days were hard to come by since they would give you 1 hour of sick time per 2 weeks an 3 hours of vacation time per 2 weeks, however sick time did not accumulate as quickly as needed for 98% of employees.
Pros
None
Cons
Played favorites

I was fired for my first and only call in in 6 months with the company without any written or verbal warning. Management talks to their employees awful and throws them around from route to route with no notice. Trucks are usually loaded in the wrong order and always has product missing, when they don’t believe that product is missing they’ll accuse you of just not delivering it. Do NOT work for Cardinal!
Pros
Pay, benefits
Cons
Management, hours, job security

Work is very, very dangerous, accidents are often involving glass lacerations. OSHA has little to no visits. Very poor management in glass tempering production plant. Very hot working conditions with no advancement opportunities but supervisors will tell you otherwise to get hard work from employees. Management will offer raises to encourage hard work but will not follow through. Management plays favorites with employees not based on work performance but on willingness to tell on others for petty infractions, also pitting employees against each other which makes trusting other coworkers hard when the work is dangerous and trust in others is imperitive for safety. No longer family owned and operated even though descriptions all say so. DO NOT WORK HERE IF YOU WANT A LONG TERM CAREER THAT DOESNT INVOLVE DISABILITY!!!!
Pros
Paid holidays
Cons
Too many to list!!!!

A typical day of work was an overnight run up to Vermont delivering heavy glass and aluminum hardware to customers. Usually I would stay in the Burlington, VT area in a hotel and meal provided by the employer. There was no hard part to this job, besides dealing with the winter weather in that region. During the six years I worked there I learned quite a lot. I became familiar with learning how the warehouse worked, routing runs in a logistical manner and loading and unloading trucks with the forklift. I really truly enjoyed this job along with the people i worked with. The only thing i did not like was the way they treated their employees and underpaid us with hardly any room for advancement. This was something i worked incredibly hard for and promised.

Review redacted at the author's request. I only worked there for a short period, and though I thoroughly enjoyed the job and co-workers at the time, I cannot offer a current/accurate representation of the business, except to say I'd gladly go back if I could

Typical work day, busy, small conversation, a little music going, always the smell of food. Laid back atmosphere. Sometimes customers call in very irritated, whether its not receiving shipment on time or merchandise is defective. But all in all, its a great company to work for.
