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

Very long hours, good pay and great health insurance. The hard part of the job is that we were spread out in 5 different locations in a 10 acre area. Communication was difficult.

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

Juan Mendoza is the worse Manager. He downgrades all employees he considers underneath him and gets away with it. The company needed someone to make changes for other various reasons because a Manager of 14 years quit all of sudden wanting to sue them. Juan is dumb and only knows how to be to told what to do because all he did was go to school. He'll tell you he is educated so listen to him...not knowing other people are educated too. They are lacking promising things they get you hired for. Their trucks are killing people. Watch the news. Once you are hired you have to fight for your right and considered ignored once they have you in. They use several methods to get away with things they have to put in work for to cover their position. They were all 1 race but now trying to hire whatever fool who believes them. Watch out for dispatch Kevin, he will Con anyone especially when he made a mistake and he need you to do whatever to make up for it, putting your life in harm. This company doesn't believe in safety first. People think they pay the most. I'm here to say that's NOT TRUE. Sorry company don't provide much materials to operate everyday. You get question or criticized for not having the materials you need when it's considered mandatory. You will work a full 6 days but be told you won't work but only 1 or 2 Saturdays a month. Jill in HR used to be understanding but when she started thinking that complaints were false because she lacks the understanding in Concrete, she will start to blame the workers for her limited education to cover not having to do much but Covid19 in her - more...
Pros
Having a break
Cons
hours, professionalism, no uniforms, no tools or products, unorganized, illegal, lack of the proper communication, No promising career

Management is terrible.. the maintenance manager found it funny when employees were unhappy. The human resource lady was extremely unprofessional and seemed to have a goal to fire good employees. There was no team it was management against the work force.
Pros
None stay away
Cons
Management is terrible

En Holcim un dia de trabajo conlleva mucho movimiento, el tiempo es corto debido a la distancia recorrida entre el punto de salida hacia el punto de realización de los trabajos, se debe cumplir con la cultura laboral siguiendo todos los protocolos de seguridad, aún asi siempre hay tiempo para tomar un café antes de empezar la jornada.
Holcim brinda al trabajador todas las herramientas necesarias para la realización de sus actividades, realiza además capacitaciones constantes necesarias para el desarrollo profesional.
Pros
Brinda capacitaciones de especialidades técnicas para el desarrollo profesional
Cons
Estar 24/7 para Holcim fuera de su jornada laboral aún sin estar programado para trabajar
