Very family oriented company excellent work life balance

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I use to be a long haul truck driver. I took this job because I now have custody of my 5yr old son.(full time single Dad.). So glad I did. I now work days and have my weekends off. Also management works with me on my start times which allows me to work around my babysitters schedule. I have honestly never worked for a company that is so accommodating and understanding . So grateful to Lafarge So happy and proud to work here

Pros

Great work life balance

Rampant corporate hypocrisy , trust is a major problem

Company doesn't Maintain trucks and shows little respect to employees and their own policies. Trucks are run down and if you insist on repair, you stay home without pay when truck is in shop. Inconsistent hours, too many some week very few in others. Managers who disregard safety policies. Mangers who cannot be trusted. There are a lot of good people who work there unfortunately, it is the unscrupulous who succeed with promotion

Pros

Decent pay

Cons

Poor quality trucks

Very poor management and overall working environment if you want a work life balance

Not a good company to work for. Management will do all they can to not help. Will say they are a safety driven business. But want you to work pass you HOS on a regular basis. Dispatch will pressure you as well, which they are directed by management. It is a union environment that will take your money but will not assist you if mangement tried to push you out if you do not listen to them when you voice your right about unsafe working condition

Worked for them for one season, unfortunately the construction season in Ontario at the time was from May - October and having a family needed a more steady income. Now that we are here in Alberta hoping to go back to work for them.

Bad management

Great job, union wages, pension for long term drivers. All about safe driving and safety. Equipment can be better, paid by the hour. Once you have seniority you have year round work.

Pros

Great people to work with

Cons

Bad management

Lack of education prevents management making the right decisions.

Most unfortunate for the rank and file employees that do excellent work, practice safety 24/7 and take pride in their work is the fact management are uneducated and therefore lack the management skills necessary to run a successful day to day customer based business. They could be doing 100 times better but refuse ANY "suggestions". Makes for a work force that constantly complain, backstab and hate each and every day. Unfortunately because of major outstanding bills some stay.

Pros

Not there anymore

Cons

There too long.

People were great to work with!

Delivery of concrete to work sites, very many different applications of concrete, the management was fantastic, co-workers were fantastic, hardest part of job was learning about the concrete, slumps, pouring, and the applications, everybody that trained me had the patience to teach me what I learned.

Pros

the pay

Cons

long hours
