Good place to learn

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good place to learn and although there is lots of room to grow due to the size of the organization. But the pay isn't great and is sometimes lower than the industry average.

Pros

Big organization

Cons

Pay

Great environment

The crews are amazing and the pay is decent,you don't get much of a summer life though and that can be tough on a young family,but at least the Sundays are optional for the most part

Pros

Amazing people to work with

Cons

No summer life

Holcim is a productive, forward looking and staff engaging organization

Holcim is a great place to work. The network, and job simplicity makes the work environment friendly. I look forward everyday to learn new things while contributing my quotas to the success of the organization. The reward system is fair and transparent.

The employee I work with are great

They keep putting more work load on you because of being short staff and won’t hire they are probably the cheapest company wage wise and expect more and more out of you

Pros

Free lunch on long weekends

Cons

Low wages

Work work balance

I feel very unappreciated, very underpaid and very overworked. It would be nice if a few more people would be hired to share the workload around here.

Accounting Department

I would not work there again! Management is not honest in so many ways.You are mainly using computer generated letters in AR and have #’s to complete when it comes to calls/letters. Quality is not required it’s about numbers. You have a hard time building relationships with clients.

Good company to work

Overall it is a good company. My current position is high-pace and a bit stressful especially in the beginning. Most of the management is good but some just make less job than they have to, but in general it is a very good company.

Only few good guys and hard workers

Where to start? Superintendent wants to act like he's a God, treating people like not worhted and useless, disrespectful. Workers, few are willing to help and work hard but most of them are lazy and doing almost nothing all day....

Beware !!!! You were warned

I was brought in to the fonthill site to be a heavy equipment operator/maintenance and was put on as a labourer only , they lie to you on the interview you think it’s great until you get there , then they tell you everything about the job that they didn’t tell you in the interview , terrible place , do not go there unless you absolutely have too, get it in writing that you are a equipment operator only , or they will use you as a labourer

Pros

None, no one even takes breaks, no work life balance

Cons

Long hrs and 1 day off per week

Great company...bad management

For a company that preaches safety, they are hypocrites.I was fired for raising a very valid safety issue.Inland was more than happy to hire me and they have great management and REAL safety policies that protect and support their drivers.Don't work here unless you're a hypocrite.

good

The job was ok. It was nice to be constantly learning and have the ability to learn different content teams. Management can make a huge difference in a job and when management shifted the job got toxic. Pay was not great. It was nice to not have to take work home with you. Once you are done for the day, you're done.

Not worth the hassle

Uncaring management and below industry pay for important staff. It's clear upper management only care about themselves and their bonuses. Long days are expected and you need to be glued to your phone in off hours.

Fun place to work lots of freedom, little to zero support from management

Was a knowledgeable place to learn management could have been better but overall I would recommend taking an opportunity to use this as a stepping stone in your career

Pros

Fun co workers

Cons

Empty promises

Great place to grow as a professional

Good hours (if you like long work days) and good people. It sucks that there is not enough winter work to go around but that's the nature of the business. Would recommend for people who have the education, but want to get a foot in the door in the industry

Internal politics, band-aid solutions that will fail, corrupt union.

This job is the poster child for "It's who you know, not what you know." There was no room for advancement, the job is unionized, and the union actively fights to help Lafarge in any grievance or dispute with its members. You will be told to do work that you know isn't right and that will fail, but it doesn't matter. You will cause longer down time, and far more damage and work for yourselves because management refuses to look further than their noses. Equipment doesn't get fixed and you'll likely get hurt because of it. That just paints a target on your back for management to find a reason to make your life miserable. The union will not help you. It's frustrating, unsatisfying and deeply demoralizing. Steer clear.

Love The People I Work With

Everyone that I work with is great. Easy to get along with and always room for growth in the company. Days can be long and the work-life balance can get a little crazy during the busy season but all in all a good company to work for

Not recommended

Pay and perks only good attributes of Lafarge. Other than that, culture is horrendous. Management set policies for no alcohol on site when they plan in office Christmas parties with beers available. Managers micro-manage as well. If you don't mind this then this is the company for you!

Pros

pay and perks.

Cons

everything else.
