Stressful

Everyday you do something wrong constantly pushed down, making you not want to be there. People are constantly on stress leave because of how your treated, supervisor praises safety all the time but in the end only wants numbers, employees constantly complain about wanting to leave, if you learn a little slower than the rest you'll get yelled at, in a nutshell don't see or hear people lineing up there to get a job.

If you where knee pads , you will do well .

Its not what you know , but who you know . If you have relative or next of kin in management you should apply, The nepotism is enough to make you sick to your stomach . With nepotism in the way well equal opportunity doesn't exist. Management is a joke , some of the management team dont have a clue of what is going on For most of the time .

Hectic environment

Company is going through many changes with the take over By Holcim. Cutting costs is good, but doing so in the wrong areas. Always want more and not willing to give anything back.

Pros

Company truck

Cons

No commitment from them

Long hours, underappreciated

Not a terrible to work but the hours are long, you are in elements year round no matter if its +40 or -30. My biggest problem was if you had an issue and brought it up to your supervisor, he might hear what you are saying but isn't listening. Felt like it just fell on def ears and I wasn't anything more then an employee number.

Safe, respectable work environment

This is definitely one of the best places to work in Canada. Safety, quality service and products and absolute respect for workers is the culture that I experienced here.
