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

Blah

Management is a joke in every regard. There is zero job security. Don’t expect any time off. Don’t expect to be appreciated at any point. People are lazy and just don’t want to work.

Not the best job, but....

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 !

Amazing multicultural environment

Every day was an interesting day at LafargeHolcim as I dealt with employee relations, HR operational activities, payroll, union agreements and benefits. I enjoyed the variety and face paced environment while working with peers and colleagues from different parts of the world. It was not always easy, but my team and I were resilient and persevered through the many challenges.

Pros

Flexible work schedules, great benefits, great work environment

Cons

long days

work life

The work life balance needs to be addressed. There have been many headcount reductions over recent years with no reduction in job responsibilities leading to tired teams.

Good company which gives opportunities for advancement

The company gives lots of opportunities for advancement. The work day may be exhausting some times and needs to work over time once in a while, but generally a good place to work.

Prefer not to give review

Good experience other than working with the odd lunatic. A lot more waiting around than actual work but sometimes that is expected in construction. Would work with them again but not the same crew I was with nor doing the same job I had.

my review

Is a great company to work for however due to moving do not want to commute. The days changed as I moved locations for them allot. Could be scaling operators and then filing/bookwork. Or at a different location depending on the weather could be vice versa. The job was good as the people were very nice and helpful in training and if an emergency came up were always there to count on. Hardest part was bouncing from location to location.

Poor culture

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.

Nothing more to say., it was a good experiece working on the Calgary SEST ring road, didn’t do much after that , i went on to do subdivision work but ended up driving truck hauling equipment more than I did operating equipment.
