Lafarge offers a great work & life balance and they appreciate that people need that. The wage was competitive with other companies in the area. There was room for advancement however the majority of the work was seasonal.

Franceschini brothers
Heavy equipment operator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 August 2018
If you're working at franceschini depot, the people are amazing.

Management however is a monkey show. Benefits are laughable for such a huge company.

Supervisors will have you doing a million different jobs that are not discussed at the beginning of your employment but you have to do them anyways.

Pay is horrendous. Unfair and just ridiculous. Really low pay for such a huge company
Pros
Great working hours
Cons
No over time, no team work, little pay

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.

Spécialiste logistique au service à la clientèle (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC9 May 2018

Pros
Repas gratuit et très bon salaires
Cons
Aucune pause
