The worst company that I have had the misfortune of working for

Lafarge is generally considered to be a world leader in construction right?? Well they might be in other markets but in Saskatoon they are disorganized, dishonest, and do not value their employees contributions, any employee is expendable, totally profit driven, with a profit at all cost attitude. Lafarge will portray that safety is their number 1 value, this is total lip service, they are only concerned with profit. Any construction company out there is better to work for than this place, passing on applying here in Saskatoon is a great decision, you won’t be disappointed.

Pros

I can’t think of any!

Cons

Long hours, zero recognition, corrupt upper management.

Great pension Great union members

I put in 5 years climbing the ranks of the union. After five years i started to get tired of the overtime. When I started to refuse overtime or ridiculous hours i was threatened with continual write ups and suspensions that were really nothing. The company has a watchdog system so they can watch you and the trucks and if you go even a single km over a speed limit set by the company for even a few seconds once or twice a month they will come after you with reprimands unless like a good dog you do as they say when they say how they say.
