When it was just lafarge it was great
They used to value their employees and those who put in many years and dedication but not the same since they became Lafargeholcim, now employees are just numbers and not approached or sought out if they have qualifications for a higher position. Used to love this company but it’s has changed for the worse when it comes to how they treat their employees.
Pros
Benefits are good.
Cons
Long hours no appreciation

Great company before the merger
Culture and benefits changed after the merger. No job security after the merger. Everybody felt like they are walking on eggshells. First 10 years was amazing.

Good money and benefits if you like to get dirty
Good money and benefits but very dusty and hard labour to start. Lots of room to move up in the company. Lots of training and lots of different things to do.

No protection....Union is only there for themselves
Safety is pushed by company And you will get wrote up if you don’t follow procedures but procedures go out the window when somethings broke down and They threaten to fire you if you don’t do the job. Union protection Is nonexistent union executive is only there to take their yearly trips to Vegas and spend union members money on foolishness.You’ve been warned!

Very poor management and overall working environment if you want a work life balance
Not a good company to work for. Management will do all they can to not help. Will say they are a safety driven business. But want you to work pass you HOS on a regular basis. Dispatch will pressure you as well, which they are directed by management. It is a union environment that will take your money but will not assist you if mangement tried to push you out if you do not listen to them when you voice your right about unsafe working condition

Paid well with decent benefits
constantly making cutbacks that affected morale. One person was paid to do three jobs at the salary of one person. Great coworkers, management made decisions purely based on money saved
Pros
paid well

Team environment with potential for advancement
Strong emphasis on operational experience and P&L knowledge. Interests in heavy equipment and construction would be of value. Flat organization requires you to take on responsibility early in your career.
Pros
Workout Facilities
Cons
Travel

Blah
Management is a joke in every regard.
There is zero job security.

Don’t expect any time off.

Don’t expect to be appreciated at any point.

People are lazy and just don’t want to work.

Not the best job, but....
If you think that you experienced everything bad in your life, you are wrong. You have to meet superintendent of Calgary precast plant. If I continue to write it would be wasting of your and my time. You don’t want to work for that kind of person !
