Wheel Loader Operator (Former Employee) –  Langley, BC21 July 2018
The guys I worked with at Lafarge we’re an awesome bunch.Hard working bunch of guys always willing to help each other out.I worked in the aggregate division.My biggest issue was that the Operations Manager had very little regard for the fact that when you have a family you do need to spend the odd weekend at home .
Not the best place I’ve ever worked but certainly not the worse
Pros
Great guys
Cons
Poor maintenance on equipment

Terminal Manager (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB17 May 2018
Lafarge is a very large organization with many employees in many places throughout the world. If you work in management it is not good enough to do your job as required. You can also be expected to be micro managed and if you don't comply then you will be fired.
Pros
Benefits were good
Cons
Micro management is very prevalent

Productive and great internal connection with all departments working together
Accounts Payable Administrator (Former Employee) –  Concord, ON11 May 2018
We were able to work well with all departments as we all effected each other in one way or another. We worked well together and in many ways were as close as family, as we came from a much smaller office in Markham and together grew into a much larger organization, with respect and compassion, mostly.

Environnement du travail stressant et aucune vie de famille
Spécialiste logistique au service à la clientèle (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC9 May 2018
Maleureusement, il n'y a aucun leadership dans cette entreprise... Ils n'engage pas assez de gens donc les heures supplémentaires sont normal dans cette entreprise. De plus, aucune pause n'est accordé. Il faut travailler 8 heure en ligne sans arrêt.
Pros
Repas gratuit et très bon salaires
Cons
Aucune pause

Don't work for this company. Management knows nothing and blames you.
Loader Operator (Former Employee) –  Sarnia, ON15 April 2018
Management changes every year. And non of them know what they are doing. They have fired for what they call business reasons. So no mater how long you work there you can be fired for no reason. Coworker are great but always have their back against a wall. Paris low for the work expected. Only safety they care about is covering their own butt.
Pros
Good coworker
Cons
Management is always pointing fingers

Pros
Playing a part in a large scale project
Cons
Trying to keep a solid employee base

Great place to work if you’re willing to play the game!
Dispatcher/Customer Service, scale attendant (Former Employee) –  Lower Mainland, BC5 January 2018
To advance at Lafarge(lower mainland aggregates) you need to be ‘in the club’ or have the right last name. You’re just a number to such a big corporation, you have a few people that care but they leave knowing that it’s better Elsewhere, the people that are left and the new hires in management don’t seem to really care, cutthroat and people like to throw others under the bus. They don’t see the work that is done by the good workers, reward the ones that are in the club. Don’t work for the lower mainland aggregates!
