Environmental Field Technologist (Former Employee) – Acton, ON – 28 August 2017
This position held a high level of autonomy. There was a high level of trust the work would get completed in a timely fashion. Working for 12 Operations each site and site manager was very supportive and always provided the resources required to complete the task at hand. I enjoyed my 11 years at this company and I worked with some very impressive people.
Ready Mix Driver (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 28 October 2017
Everything is micro managed to the known extreme, and just when you think that it can't get any worse, they find a way to top themselves.
There is a lot of dead wood floating around in company pick up trucks. It seems that the answer to all their problems is to hire more management, and guess who pays for it? You do, that's why you have to work late! And on Saturdays!
If you have a family, or want to meet someone, or join a league of any kind, forget it!
Dufferin used to be a good place to work until they hired a new generation of HR staff.
None of these people have ever done the job, yet have superior knowledge of all situations. Kind of like saying "I've never done your job, but my book says you're doing it wrong"
I've heard from inside that they are desparate for drivers. My advice is to get this job, get trained and get out! There will be a lot of Concrete companies looking for experienced drivers in the spring.
Plant Operator (Current Employee) – Innisfil, ON – 10 August 2017
Like all companies you will have your good and bad that comes along with it, but the difference with this company is that if you show initiative and you have a sense of work ethic you will be noticed and have all the opportunity to move up in any field with training. So the short of it all is when you come to work for this company be prepared to show off your skills and work ethic bacause it will get noticed and you will be rewarded in due time.
Ready Mix Driver (Former Employee) – Orangeville, ON – 27 April 2016
Inept, incompetent managers and supervisors. None I worked with have ever done the job. Unreasonable, rigid, acknowledge minor failures and faults constantly. Never anything positive to say. If you have any type of accident you are at fault no matter what. A stone flies off your truck, you are going to be interviewed. Driveway collapses under the weight of your fully loaded truck and truck rolls over--3 days suspension for you. Some plants (Orangeville) do not pay close to the industry standard, then wonder why they cant get drivers to stay.Incredible super jerk on the loader in Georgetown. Creepy little man! Slightest little imperfection and he is all over it. Nothing better to occupy his time with. Just a dumb failure. How do you get along with that type of monkey? Hotheaded Neanderthal! Not much good to say about my experience at Dufferin Concrete(CRH). Only good thing is most of the other drivers are great guys. 25% of the customers are unreasonable airheads. Typical construction worker attitude. No brains...just brawn.
Benefits! They do throw you an occasional pizza!
Inept Supervisor always on you! Never a good thing to say. Poor pay for industry.
Bilingual IT Service Desk Analyst (Former Employee) – Concord, ON – 16 February 2016
It was a 3-month short period contract that didn't give me the opportunity to evaluate the management style. Everything was new, most employees and managers are new and everyone was trying to find his way within this huge organization.
The result was a poor experience.
Very good location on Keel and Steeles, Free Parking
RMX Driver (Current Employee) – Milton, ON – 27 January 2016
management is easy to get along with, co-workers are helpful in all aspects of the company. The hardest part of the job is doing the tested load to make sure there is no rejections while on site. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting along with the customers and making a friendship, which makes the work day and future deliveries a breeze.
