Awful place to work, ungrateful dangerous shift work

Extremel nepotism, too many bosses, top heavy. No emphasis on safety. Ask staff to work too quickly, no matter the danger of the road being worked on. One guy gets no slack for wrecking 13 trucks, One guy does $30,000 damage to a building with no repercussions . then three guys with impeccable records were fired after minor incidents that didn’t cause any company costs. Don’t even apply

Pros

None

Cons

Stay away... unless you’re a family member or friend

I wouldn't apply here unless I knew someone high up in management, or you'll see yourself going nowhere fast.

Old school ways of thinking, and nepotism ruined what was shaping up to be a long and fruitful career. Employees will use any little bit of power given to them to make it to the next level . Bullying and discrimination are largely ignored by Human Resources.

Pros

income of up to and even exceeding 100k a year

Cons

long hours and shift from nights to days

My experience

Working at Lafarge was by far the best job I’ve ever done it may have been slow but I made my nights and days go by fast as I could I was a shingle operator working 12hour shifts 2days then 2 nights them 4 off was a good gig. My job title was to slow for my likings but over all a great place to work

Hire & Fire Culture

I excitedly accepted a Job after a quick but intensive interview process. I joined the company looking forward to a long term career however my dreams were quickly crushed. After spending a month with the company my employment was terminated. I received no constructive feedback along the way and was under the impression that the job was going well. I was never given a reason for my termination. A short while later I received a call from a vendor who hadn't realized my termination had been terminated. After a short discussion with the individual I learned that the company had churned through 4 different individual in my role over a 7 month period.

Pros

Good Pay

Cons

Terrible culture
