Not ideal
Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Gary, INJuly 26, 2017
The hours were decent and the pay was okay for a new graduate. This is not an ideal working environment though. The plant is very dusty and dirty. You walk outdoors in all weather.

Great people, strong safety values, customer focused environment. Employee valuation is lacking.
Production Manager (Former Employee) –  Strasburg, VAJanuary 31, 2017
The company is very focused on customer satisfaction, and the product quality is probably the strongest in the region. They also have a great safety program, though there are a lot of "initiatives", seems whatever is popular is introduced as the newest thing for the company. Carmeuse has a strong focus on customer satisfaction and relationships, but they do not value the individual employee enough. There are frequent layoff's & management reorganizations regionally and locally. The company has high expectations of their employees, and sometimes expect too much. Expect long work hours if salaried.
Overall, this was a decent company to work for, but as an employee, you should be prepared for unexpected changes in organization. Just know going in that Carmeuse will do the right thing for Carmeuse, even if it means an unexpected layoff.
Pros
Good compensation, strong safety culture
Cons
Frequent layoffs and management reorganizations.

Wouldn't make a long term career out of it
kiln utiliy (Current Employee) –  Winchester, VAApril 3, 2016
Decent pay for area but once they get you in a raise is like pulling teeth to get. Most of the management are useless, except for a few. There is a huge favoritism issue within departments, ecspecially in the maintenance and quarry departments. Ive been an employee here for a lil over a year and it has changed for this worse in a small amount of time. most jobs are rotating or they lie and once you get there you are changed to a rotating shift. co workers are mostly ok but there is a select few that get the favortism and all the specialized training and raises. hard work is nothing, its mostly who pleases the boss. othere than that its a job
Pros
pay
Cons
mostly everything

Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Millersville, OHSeptember 9, 2015
Started out as laborer and worked my to Garage Mech/Maiternance. Fellow employees and management a good group guys to work with. Hardest part of the job was cleaning out the duct work which consisted of coating built up on the inside from 1" thick to 2' thick. They did provide good meals and showed us their appreciation on jobs well done.
Pros
take break when needed
Cons
swing shifts

High expectations of continuous improvment
Director of Sales, North America (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJune 23, 2015
Very fast paced and high intensity work place.

Became much more adept at managing multiple projects to meet very aggressive strategic plans.

Management was fact driven and highly focused on daily detailed analysis of operational status, customer service, and contract management.

Co-workers were highly engaging when possible, workloads sometimes made it difficult to have as much interface that was sometimes needed.

Managing the day to day issues that arose with the producing plants as operational issues would force alternate supply planning solutions on a daily basis.

The fast pace and the camaraderie of the sales and customer service group.
Pros
Market leader, very customer focused.
Cons
Lean staff created long hours to make sure customer service was not compromised.

Not what I expected
Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Maysville, KYApril 5, 2015
Everything is quick and half way fixed they don't want to fix anything the correct way. And this company doesn't care what you do for them how much money you save them. Supervision only cares about themselves they don't take care of any workers and then wonder why moral is low. Management cut hours down to 32 while not cutting theirs or taking a pay cut like the rest of us. The job is not as stable as I thought.
Pros
Fair pay, good benefits, close to home
Cons
everyone is related, schedule rotates, cut your hours

Could be potentially a good place to work
Administrative Assistant II/Wellness Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Strasburg, VAApril 2, 2015
Management was too interested in personal advancement, and treated workers with disrespect. It could have been a nice place to work, but the underlying feeling of no job security and whether or not you made the boss happy each day in order to keep your job was very difficult. Otherwise, the work was okay.
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
Dirty environment, too many managers with different opinions
