Poor working experience
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Acheson, AB31 May 2018
I worked at an expocrete plant in Acheson, AB for two years. Production equipment was frustrating to deal with, it was always in some sort of malfunctioning state or had to be limped along with constant worker intervention. Management never seemed to listen to our requests for working equipment, but they were keen to micro manage. I watched a supervisor break lock outs on the daily, it was reported and nothing ever came of it.
Pros
Local
Cons
Management, supervisors, broken equipment, lack of HR or Safety.

Order to Cash (Former Employee) –  Concord, ON18 January 2018
CRH management focuses mainly on Profits. Focusing on profits is not wrong. It becomes wrong when it is the only important thing for the management.

It is important to listen to the employees and care about their ideas, needs, and professional ambitions. Many desitions affecting the employees are taken without proper communication. You feel like a chess piece for them.

Many of the managers are not properly trained and don't have any idea of how to be real leaders of a team.

You're required to work extra hours, sometimes weekends and statuary holidays, and have to remind every time in order to get them back as there's no monetary compensation for those.

Enviromental Field Technologist
Environmental Field Technologist (Former Employee) –  Acton, ON28 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.

Plant Operator (Current Employee) –  Innisfil, ON10 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.
Pros
Good pay, availabe overtime
Cons
possible nights and weekend work.

Manufacturing Accounting Specialist (Current Employee) –  Concord, ON28 September 2016
still going through a transition period after Holcim merger and acquisition. Management is ok but little room to grow. Good co-worker and stable work. Not much pressure but the pay is a bit lower than average market pay.

Technicienne en ressources humaines (Former Employee) –  Joliette, QC25 February 2016
Cette entreprise m'a permis de me développer professionnellement dans le domaine des ressources humaines.

Bilingual IT Service Desk Analyst (Former Employee) –  Concord, ON16 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.
Pros
Very good location on Keel and Steeles, Free Parking
Cons
No rules

RMX Driver (Current Employee) –  Milton, ON27 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.
