During your orientation they talk about how they care about the employees and their families, don't fall into their trap. If you are a driver they will find a way to get out of paying the driver retention bonus. And management walks in lock step with each other because they are all talking to each other about what to tell you to your face and then they do something completely different behind your back. Take warning now of this company because they will try and get rid of you for any reason even if you are on workers compensation. The work is inconsistent so you will need to save money on the few good weeks so you have money to cover the bad weeks, right now I am experiencing 1 good week to 3 bad weeks so you never can catch up.
TANKER DRIVER (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – May 25, 2017
I signed on as a tanker driver and Doser. I was told we would also train as a cement truck driver, never happened even though I continued to ask for that to happen. So as soon as the rapid set job we were on ended we were let go! And they kept a huge portion of the 401k contributions!!
Terminal Operator (Former Employee) – Neville Island, PA – January 17, 2017
This company and the current union are all about favoritism. This way the worst place I've ever worked at. Staff is meant to blindly follow the higher ups and they get rid of anyone who isn't a yes man.
very high paying job Great benefits this is a career not a job
P/A (Former Employee) – New Braunfels, TX – January 13, 2017
Started at this job with no type of knowledge of running equipment and learning how a huge industrial plant run I've learned so much for working there definitely learned all different types of trade for my personal life and work experience
CEMEX places priority on the welfare of their workers. Many times the hours are long (60+ a week), but in that time you develop strong networking connections in and out of the business. Employees rotate the weekend shifts in a very organized manner and rarely work on Sunday. The compensation is not matched by any other cement company in the area, for drivers or mechanics. There are many opportunities to move up within the organization after you have developed your skills in your current position.
Was a rewarding place to work. different skills were used from day to day.
Operations System Manager (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 23, 2016
Each day brought more challenges plus rewards. I had the opportunity to learn many different skills. Management was OK, some were better than others. Co-workers were only looking out for themselves, I tried to create an environment of team building within my group, which was a success.
Assistant Plant Manager (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – November 11, 2016
It was my experience that this company is not very people oriented. You are more of a number than a person. They like to micromanage every aspect of the business and leave very little decision making at the local level.
Instrument Electrician (Current Employee) – Victorville, CA – October 23, 2016
Foreign management has little respect for employees. Demands work life over home life. Threatening and intimidating management style. We don't have time to fix it right but we do have time to do it over. No parts or training.
