HR Specialist (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA – September 15, 2013
As part of the North American Headquarters, I was part of HR operations for different business units and dealt with employees from the US and Canada. I was involved with the rollout of new initatives.
I was also a Campus Recruiting Specialist while at Lafarge. This was a dynamic position envolving a great deal of travel and coordination with other members of the Campus Team. It was demanding but extremely rewarding. It ended when the program was disbanded.
great learning environment
position was reorganized and transferred to canada
Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Luling, LA – June 8, 2016
Start of days are unpredictable.there are no set start times. I have learned flexability and to have a very high expectation on safety.Management is fair and co-workers are team orientated and professional.the hardest part of the job is rainy days,the most enjoyable part is serving the customers.
Freight and Customs Coordinator - US (Former Employee) – Southfield, MI – January 21, 2016
I worked here for 13 years total, 1 as a contractor and 12 as an employee. It was a great place to work for many years however the last few years were not so great, as there was constant threat of job loss due to relocation and consolidation of corporate services. Also reduced several benefits over the last few years. Currently they are in process of a merger with Holcim, the new company is called LafargeHolcim.
Nice Pay, bonus
Management disconnected from the "common" people, "do more with less" is the unofficial corporate mantra
exceptional work place with new experiences around every corner
Customer Service & Inside Sales (Current Employee) – Sun City, AZ – December 9, 2015
Growing work place with a good amount of difficulties as the business continues to grow. Dedicated workers with a ton of heart behind them. The plant manager showed his care for each and everyone of his employees and was sure that they felt equal.
Loving and safe work environment with plenty of opportunities to grow
Trucking Fleet Manager (Current Employee) – Southfield, MI – September 14, 2015

Electrical Technician (Former Employee) – Joppa, IL – March 2, 2015
Very involved with the family members of their co-workers. Many family events to attend. To allow you to get to know the co-workers along with their families on a more personal level. Good management, who are all level headed. All in all great environment.
Great people but company is going through growing pains
Human Resources (Generalist) Coordinator (Former Employee) – Southfield, MI – February 22, 2015
Great network of people in the company. There have been a lot of recent changes at the upper and senior management level due to changes within the organization. I enjoyed working there for the most part but the changes caused a lot of good people to leave due to not wanting to relocate to the Chicago office.

Good Company. Bad Management. H.R. disorganized. plenty of room for improvement.
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Silver Grove, KY – June 11, 2014
Good job. Dirty place. Co-workers concerned about others and their work. Lower management overworked. Upper management unconcerned. I enjoyed working with most people there, especially plant maintenance personnel. The point-sytem employed by staff was extremely unfair and they could care less.
Bundler Operator (Current Employee) – Buchanan, NY – June 2, 2014
Typical day starts with a pre-shift/safety meeting discussing the production for the day ahead of us, then onto the work floor where any quality or maintenance issues are also discussed with the shift being relieved. Each day is something different with the production of various types of drywall. It is a fast paced environment where any hiccup can cause upsets in the production. When upsets do arise, each employee is cross-trained on various jobs limiting the amount off lost product. The hardest part of the day is remaining focused on all issues, most importantly your own safety and the safety of the person next to you. Safety takes priority over anything else. The most enjoyable part of the day is everyone going home the same way they came in.
Dispatcher (Current Employee) – Carbondale CO – March 1, 2014
I would dispatch RMX trucks every other day. On the opposite days I would take the orders and do the scheduling for the next business day's orders. Everyday was a new day. Always challenging. I worked well with my fellow team-mates. The hardest part of my job was scheduling the trucks for the times that the customers would want especially during the busy season.
