During my time with the company there were some serious challenges and voids at the upper management level that have since been remedied. My complaints from those days seem to have dissipated with strong leadership and a definitive direction from current management.

The company held many talented individuals and the company is good at rewarding effort with advancement.
Pros
Advancement opportunities, great team
Cons
Disorganized with a lack of consistency

Great place to work. Many opportunities to move and grow with the company. Can easily go from warehouse worker to front counter in less then a year if you put the work in.

A typical day at National Concrete Accessories is bound to be full of finger pointing, back-biting, gossiping, petty issues transforming into mountains and a general two-faced insincerity from co-workers and management.

Management has no cohesion and is not motivated for the greater good. Selfish interests and egos run rampant with restructuring used to move friends laterally or somewhat vertically and newly formed enemies being dubiously pushed out.


The bonus structure is extremely suspect and chances are that you would be left wanting.

I repeat do not work for this company unless you can battle the dusty environment, backstabbing, and looking like an idiot because you cannot find the product and telling the customer your out of stock. Horrible Warehouse Manger unprofessional very bossy and half the times he does not know what's going on. There's two brothers that work there act like they own the place because mommy works there
too (she's in mangement) Lots of controling employees telling you what to do. Other than there are a couple good workers that awesome.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Long hours dusty and sweaty environment

Management promises everything and delivers nothing. They lie to get you to stay and continue in this toxic environment. Horrible, petty management always playing favorites, lying and back stabbing. I seemed to know more about the material than the so-called management, yet they tell everyone they are wrong in front of the whole staff. Disgruntled employees, incompetent management, no support network. Do not accept a job here. You WILL regret it.
Pros
nothing
Cons
nearly everything, see above

Local regional manager was good but
poor oversight by Regional manager and decisions made also by newly acquired President was not

favourable to an employee wanting to return to work and relocate to another branch that was hiring for same position after after medical leave.

Some of the staff that currently works at NCA came in with little to no concrete or construction experience. We provide manufacturer training as well as in house one on one training.
I feel like the management hires to suit the team and culture over product knowledge There is a learning curve but we have an awesome team of experienced co-workers to help train you.


The new CEO tries to know everyone by name & has taken the time to chat with each employee on his visits.


There is room for advancement, the company is expanding all the time.
Pros
Room for advancement & great co-workers/management

I have only been at National Concrete accessories for a few months, and so far, I have nothing bad to say.

The communication from upper management is great. Everyone works together and is on the same page, so conflict is minimal. Unlike most retail stores, the customers here are professionals who shop daily; which makes for positive and fun interactions. As I am learning, they are patient and friendly, so it's easy to want to help them.


Most of the people working here have been here for a long time. They like what they do, they are knowledgeable, and they are reliable. Everyone works equally hard, and helps one another when they can.


There is a LOT to learn if you are in sales, and it can be overwhelming at first, but it doesn't take long for things to sink in if you are willing to learn.
Pros
Evenings and weekends off. Team atmosphere. Decent pay.

Rewarding place to work, lots of training available for employees who are not from the construction industry. Good benefits, education assistance program promotes further learning and helps offset the cost of continuing education.
Approachable management with open door policy, plenty of opportunities for professional growth.

Various employee appreciation events, good benefits, education assistance program

The most enjoyable part of the job was some of the sense of humour the employees had on the floor.

Will be an acceptable place to work in about 2050.
Pros
Fun times on the floor.
Cons
Long hours

great money wise but when it comes to the individual not a lot of guidance or answers to questions. If you don't know concrete don't apply, newer ordering software was easy to use as it is MS based and not AS400.
