Excellent communication and teamwork. However, this is a unionized environment which can make moving ahead time consuming and tasks repetitive. Management did recognize handwork with lunches/other benefits once in a while.

It was a great place to work. The only problem was it was seasonal and I didn't get a call back for the following year. I would have liked to continue working for them.

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

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 !

Bad experience. It's not what you know, but who you know. Lots of back stabbing to get ahead. Very unprofessional organization at Operational level. Still some good people there in HR.

Wouldn't really recommend especially in today's economy. Received an early lay off after being there for 10 years. Production over safety. Dealt with it first hand by watching safety being swept under the rug. Used to be a good company but younger management is making it a terrible place to work for.

Good paying place to work with good benefits. Rules to provide safety for your own benefit. Always providing steady hours to their ability. Work slows down for the winter so that's something to prepare for.

It's a good organization but too focused on short term results. More focus on long term planning and vision is required for success. Lack of attention on people development.

High turnover of employees, either quitting or getting canned because of poor management and poor screening. Basically, the knowledge and experience you will earn working for this company is not very applicable elsewhere.
Pros
Good office hours
Cons
Unstable

Well where to start.. they lie, lie and lie some more. With over 300 yes 300 deaths in the last 4 years that should tell you new comers to stay away.. dont take my word on it just Google deaths at lafarge and you will see. Botton line is there a struggling company who does not care about anything but image. This company bugs your personal cell phone, lunch room , and our bathroom until the camera was discovered in there. They fire employees who have disabilities and hire addicts. The union does zero for you so my advice is to not be a member and let human rights take care of you. The trucks are junk and barely legal to be on the road but the 4 cameras they installed are brand new . I worked for this company up and until there intrusive ways were effecting me directly and then I quit. The BBB should investigate this company and shut it down as the death pole increases every day for a reason with this place of business. Management is linked to terrorism, and have a criminal history, so that being said it's a matter of time before they are no more but dust in the wind.
Pros
Not dying at work
Cons
Living to go back

Poor work culture, little safety culture, archaic technology.
Little to no training unless it is expected for your specific job.

Part of Joint Health and Safety Committee and was only at 2 monthly meetings all 7 months I was there. (Monthy Mettings)

Witness to Plant Supervisor issuing orders to break OH&S working at heights regulations even after being told he was breaking the company and regulatory policies, in order to finish on time.

Racism and hostilities (Bullying) throughout our plant.

Union that doesn't appear to do much. Supervision that uses threats and propaganda during daily meetings.
Pros
Not much
Cons
Many

No room for advancement! Too many supervisors and not enough workers. Great pay but that doesn’t outweigh the politics. If you’re looking to advance up the corporate ladder this isn’t the place
Pros
Solid pay
Cons
Long hours

Management does not care much about their employees. It is very good money however with that being said as it is a seasonal job it makes it very hard to have a personal life in the summer
