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

Poorly managed company

Besides decent pay, it is a disorganized and mismanaged company that does not promote professional growth. Lack of inter department communication and succession planning resulting in a tense work environment.

Trash company, waste of time

Safety isn’t in the vocabulary. Training wasn’t provided. Worked for these clowns for 6 months and didn’t once receive a pay stub, despite several requests for a printed one. Blaine Fisher the general superintendent tends to omit certain things regarding pay...like the fact that your hourly is actually your gross pay, so it includes your vacation pay, and pension contributions. So you wind up earning about $4-5/hr less than promised. Like working for a terrible residential contractor while they fumble in the dark trying to convince provincial inspectors they know how to build infrastructure...garbage

Pros

None

Cons

Dishonest manager, incompetent staff, lack of safety culture, messy job sites

good pay

if you like to stay busy then ground work is not for you. but a great place to work for any skilled equipment operator who values safety. 12 hour rotating shifts aren't too fun but otherwise a great work environment

Accounting clerk

I worked at Lafarge on contract for 8 months. It was a pleasure working with them. Learning new things & after completing my diploma course it was my first job. They have donuts most of the time in the morning which was fun to start with coffee cup,

Lafarge is the most professional

If your looking for bonafide professional people to surround yourself with, I can't say enough great things about the whole Lafarge team. Really a bunch of good people.

Slow adoption

Overall company is slow on adoption new technology and lots of managment changes has happen in past 2-3 years which has resulted in lot of gap . Work and Life balance wise i would say that this is ok.

Not in it for the Long Term

Poor lines of communication between departments, lack of accountability always looking for someone to take the blame, promotes nepotism, you’ll move up if you’re part of the boys club, related to the boss or look the part. Lacks diversity, fosters the bottom line, hires cheap labour, not great if you want a long term career, management will bully and ridicule you and lacks professionalism

Not a great place to work if you have a family

Went there thinking it would be a great fit for me, since I had experience in the Ready Mix field as a driver already. But the culture is that the job is number one and that is it. Management complained if you took longer than 15 minutes pre-tripping your vehicle; which is crazy since as a junior driver you are in a different truck everyday. Dispatch is not very good, nor is management Not a great place to work if you have a family or like to have a life outside of the job.
