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

Great benefits & payment if you're willing to work long hours

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.

Lots of work, long hours

There is usually lots of work with Lafarge but it is seasonal work and that is why the work/life balance is more work in the summer months. Overall it is a great place to work for the money you make.

it was a great place to work

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.

Not fair

Give priority to people who knew supervisors to get a higher position. In other words you were a candidate to succeed if you knew someone in a higher position

Fast paced, but great cluture

Culture is 'open door' and adapts the 'inverted triangle' way of managing. Lots of changes, lots of cutbacks and lots of experience lost with transition.

Pros

culture is releaxed

Cons

experiance is gone.

When it was just lafarge it was great

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

Great company before the merger

Culture and benefits changed after the merger. No job security after the merger. Everybody felt like they are walking on eggshells. First 10 years was amazing.

Good money and benefits if you like to get dirty

Good money and benefits but very dusty and hard labour to start. Lots of room to move up in the company. Lots of training and lots of different things to do.

No protection....Union is only there for themselves

Safety is pushed by company And you will get wrote up if you don’t follow procedures but procedures go out the window when somethings broke down and They threaten to fire you if you don’t do the job. Union protection Is nonexistent union executive is only there to take their yearly trips to Vegas and spend union members money on foolishness.You’ve been warned!

Very boring job

Not a challenging job nothing to do all day time stood still. Colleagues are not welcoming. Management had their favourite people. Not enough hours.

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

Paid well with decent benefits

constantly making cutbacks that affected morale. One person was paid to do three jobs at the salary of one person. Great coworkers, management made decisions purely based on money saved

Pros

paid well

Team environment with potential for advancement

Strong emphasis on operational experience and P&L knowledge. Interests in heavy equipment and construction would be of value. Flat organization requires you to take on responsibility early in your career.

Pros

Workout Facilities

Cons

Travel
