Lafarge is great for taking care of their people, the only downfall is that you usually get laid off for the winter due to the nature of the business.

Very results focused company
Maintenance Planner (Current Employee), Exshaw, ABJune 29, 2012
Pros: advancement opportunities
Cons: became impersonal
Began as a labourer straight out of high school and through their career advancement opportunities, have learned all aspects of mining manufacturing industry. For the most part, co-workers are like family. Hardest part of the job is seeing what was a small Canadian company become a huge multi national conglomerate and all of the necessary "corporate" – more... decisions over "employee" needs that results from massive expansion. – less

I loved my job at Lafarge
Dispatcher (Current Employee), Carbondale COMarch 1, 2014
Pros: daily new challenges
Cons: lafarge sold out to another company
I would dispatch RMX trucks every other day. On the opposite days I would take the orders and do the scheduling for the next business day's orders. Everyday was a new day. Always challenging. I worked well with my fellow team-mates. The hardest part of my job was scheduling the trucks for the times that the customers would want especially during the – more... busy season. – less
