Immature management
Millwright (Current Employee) –  Sechelt, BC25 April 2017
- Management has high expectations for working overtime on weekends, while not honoring banked time off request.
I've missed several important family events.

- Despite having two management staff, ordering parts, planning jobs is place directly on the millwrights taking away from their regular job duties
Pros
Abundance of overtime, good guys on the floor to work alongside with
Cons
long hours, too much overtime, isolated location, poor management

Great workplace that values experience and treats employees with respect???
Transit Mixer Driver (Former Employee) –  Lower Mainland, BC4 April 2017
Regional Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 7 March 2017

Well defined strategy and DIRECTION PROVIDED by senior management. (Micromanaged)!!!

Pros

Strong management??... This is an understatement!!
______________________________________________________

Long story short is that this company is not managed very well. The pay and retirement are great if you last that long. Expect to be treated as sub-human everyday. If this is okay with you then this is the perfect company......If you have morals and expect to be treated fairly and as a team player, look for a job somewhere else.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Weak management with strongarm tactics

Morale is low because of poor management decision making.
Operator (Former Employee) –  Western Canada2 March 2017
I wouldnt recommend the company, too overly bloated with procedures. Management has poor people skills, making morale with workers very poor. Dont expect to make allot of money as promised, management will change minds constantly. Working harder not smarter applies here.
Pros
Good pension if you can make it that long.
Cons
Management is micromanaging, and unable to manage simple tasks because of it. Very unorganized, makes work harder for workers. Expect not to know what hours your working for the day.

Lehigh Cement is a good place to work
Surface Mine Blaster (Current Employee) –  Cadomin, AB2 December 2016
The hours that you work is great, 4-10hr shifts, mon-thurs. The company unfortunately started a second shift, still 4-10s but now it is straight wed-sat. The three employees that are in that shift, never get a weekend off, unless you take a holiday day.
Pros
4 ten hour shifts.
Cons
Not steady work anymore, lay-offs more frequent

Lehigh Hanson/Customer Service

Customer service management is micromanaging, condescending and not good listeners. You do your job and leave, there is no room for advancement. It is very much a boys club.
Pros
N/a
Cons
everything mentioned above

Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB28 June 2015
Hours and salary were great, however micromanaging was rampant. You always felt like you were being watched. I learned alot about the cement industry and it was interesting. I loved my co-workers and actually loved this job. The micromanaging was aweful.
Pros
benefits, company gatherings.
Cons
Micromanaging

Would not recommend
Loader Operator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB6 October 2014
On behalf of the loading office, it is full of gossip and drama. Complaints of harrassment are swept under the table by hr and management. Management does not answer questions regarding pay schedule, or how you can look up pay stubs online. Very corrupt place to work and extremely high turnaround rate. 8-10 people in and out in the two months I worked there.
Pros
Pay is decent
Cons
Gossip, harrassment
