Manager (Former Employee) says"Management has no strategy. Alot if micro managers. Disorganized and lack of diversity in management. Would consider it a racist organization. Lack of minorities in upper management."
Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee) says"Carlisle Pottstown is a joke. They hire you, have you read a ton of work instructions that are not clear and then expect you to remember everything and meet their unrealistic production goals that change daily on a whim. Cons: No profit sharing, no bonuses, no extra pay for being essential."
Operator (Former Employee) says"IMO Management is comprised of individuals who believe they have high Christian Faiths all while belittling employees beneath them, lying, and being vindictive in their process to take benefits from employees. Very clique management who attend same church and promote fellow members to higher positions without proper credentials. Favoritism is promoted in the workplace and is ran as a social club where laziest individuals get leadership positions without any skills. HR talks down to employees and simply says good luck finding another job in a borderline harassing way. Company doesn’t invest in any machinery/processes leaving everything very unsafe and unstable. Very little in regards to training do to close to zero employee retention from poor moral integrity of facilities management. Morale is non existent with the contributing employees and very high with the non productive employees who got to their positions from favoritism/social standing. Abundance of mandatory overtime from poor decisions of upper management as a result of being incompetent in their positions. This facility forces swing shift to save money on shift premiums at the expense of their employees health and work to life ratio. Zero room for advancement opportunities. SINKING SHIP"
Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee) says"Honestly it was a bad environment to be in every time the big bosses had a problem they put the blame on some one else when some employees can’t work together they force them to work together"
Assembler (Former Employee) says"Definitely don't want to work there. No one knows nothing. Totally screwed up company. Very stressful. No one ever totally did their job. Left it for others. Lots of people playing on their phones. Supervisor s in some areas are idiots"
Certified technician (Former Employee) says"Carlisle has a high turn over rate. If you want to work there don’t go through a temp agency. They use the agencies to do their dirty work for them. Don’t believe anything they say about getting hired on after 90 days. They have very poor training and throw you to the wolves."
Manufacturing Associate (Current Employee) says"Not worth the headache. Cons: Not enough pay for the work"
associate (Former Employee) says"Since it's inception in June of 2016 all CIT has really been good at is losing their most knowledgeable staff (20+ years or more experience). These were dedicated and talented individuals with a wealth of knowledge of all that the original company had established. They bought the private company giving the false pretense to make it bigger, expanding its output and customers and make the company soar better than ever (since CIT was so big and global). It's a shame it seems to be all false as all they are really doing is losing their gifted employees day in and day out. What a shame to have done such ruin to a previously successful business. Cons: management, ownership, employee value"
Mechanical Assembler II (Former Employee) says"There is no training, the management team is so lost and confused, HR is not on your side and are the biggest snakes at the company. They want to be productive but are so a** backwards and will yell and blame you for their mistakes. They make so much money and don't invest any back into their employees."
Manufacturing Associate (Current Employee) says"Very poor management, training is a joke, (after becoming certified anyone can become a trainer), very much a buddy system in place, no real recognition of skills learned, or of your dedication to hard work. Cons: Everything else"
Sale Director (Former Employee) says"Business was unorganized. Little to no accountability or collaboration. Leadership does not get along with one another. Pay I bad for what is expected."
Machine Operator/foamer (Former Employee) says"Very bad place to work half of their stuff is broken or does not work properly I would not recommend this place to no one to work here I did not like it"
Electrical harness assembly/mechanical assembly (Former Employee) says"I would never work there in a million years basically a slave ship the don't care about their employees or care if your sick or not they make you work seven days a week with no time off"
Senior Manager Operations (Former Employee) says"Moral is very bad and everyone blames the other person. It because"
Assembler (temp) says"Management is always on the floor but the floor is in total disarray. Leads have no clue about what they are doing, when I asked a question they had no answer. They spoke Spanish all the time so i was often left out of the loop. Coworkers were awesome built great friendships while i was there. When speaking to other workers about the job i was often told the raises were .10 cents and no profit sharing or bonuses. Its no wonder why they almost closed the door s in Jan they have a high scrap rate and management has no clue how to stop it. The floor supervisor would would actually time your restroom visit and yell out you took 10 minutes in the restroom. Often times i seen them treating non Spanish speaking employees bad. I told one that if he did choose to file a complaint i would go with as to what i seen and heard. Cons: Pay, management, harrasment"
engineer (Former Employee) says"Lacks direction and will play with you on many points of employment and lot of turn over. Management is weak and projects are not rolled out well leading to blame game. Cons: everything"
Manufacturing Engineer Tech (Current Employee) says"A typical day at work is always in a rush there is no organization, or any flow to the business. The management is disrespectfull and not professional. Most co. workers are helpfull and will guide you in the right direction. The hardest part of teh job is dealing with unorganized and overwhelming management. Cons: health care"
Specialist (Former Employee) says"Management in my area was disrespectful of women and requires sensitivity training. I embraced the position coming from a very professional background with a view towards being an employee earning longevity at Carlisle. The employer was not forthcoming with its intentions which resulted in my spear heading a laborious project which due to inattention over the years, was flagged by Compliance. The employer should have been transparent about the criteria during the interview process. Had the job parameters been made clear at the outset, I would not have accepted the position. Further exacerbating the experience was that after I accepted this position at Carlisle, I was offered another position which I declined. I hadn't started at Carlisle yet and did not want to rescind my acceptance of the position as I knew the Company was expecting me on the agreed upon start date and needed the role filled. SAP is the operating system at Carlisle. I learned it without any formal training and mostly by trial and error. The Company is generally disorganized, partly due to exponential growth without the personnel resources and a lack of common operating systems throughout all companies in the Carlisle family. There was nothing enjoyable about this job and the hardest part was that my work contribution although necessary was not valued."
A1 operator (Former Employee) says"Total of 11 years with this company. We've had Management come and go but this group has been terrible. Absolutely incompetent, no understanding of the production process and very ANTI laborer. First order of business our new production manager implemented was jumping Jack's and taking away stools. Not spending time learning each position"
Account Representative (Current Employee) says"You come in to 100 emails in the morning and are expected to reply within 2 hours the company cannot make its manufacturing deadlines making the customers very unhappy. This location is poorly run and it doesn’t appear to improve anytime soon"
