Worker (Current Employee) – Camden, NJ – January 30, 2017
Plant manager wears sweatpants to work daily. Doesn't involve himself in day to day running of the plant. Leaves early every day. When he is here, rides around on bobcat working with contracted laborers. This has resulted in a poor work culture.
Dispatch Manager (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 17, 2017
I worked at Hanson for 16 years,,the entire time that I worked there I was treated fairly and honestly. The VP at the time was PK Keuhner and was probably the best supervisor I ever had in my 50 years of working anywhere.
A comfortable, homey type of environment which encourages better performance from the employees
Construction Industry is always has and will be subject to layoffs. depending on geographic market
Do more with far less ! The employees are great, but I can't say the same for the management team. If you like a fast paced environment where you are not allowed to make errors, this would be the workplace for you.
Mixer Driver (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 6, 2016
I worked as a mixer driver for a few years with lehigh hanson and as I look back it was the best experience I have had in any position before or since. Good pay, Good equipment, good people, Challenging yet fun work atmosphere. If they operated where I live now I would go back to work for this company in a heartbeat!
Senior Accounts Payable Associate/Vendor Support (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – October 18, 2016
A typical day at work is supporting the plant locations and the vendors with any issues they have with their PO's or their vendor records. I enjoy working with our vendors and our plants with reconciling their PO's. I work with a pretty solid group of individuals and the team is willing to assist each other.

accountant (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – October 3, 2016
People are nice but there is always something you are never told which is essential to your job. If they like you, you will go far if they don't you wont. Simple as that. They are not believers in people development. They say that but they are not. too many roadblocks.
Office Manager (Former Employee) – Georgia – September 29, 2016
Great pay and benefits and awesome co workers. 55+ hours per week when I was hired for 40 makes for limited social life and a yard that always needs mowed. Could save the company tons of money if schedule was managed a lot better.
Recently hired manager could have been different, would have greatly impacted the moral of the location and built a more positive instead of hostile work environment. Limited opportunities to advance in Southeast, great if you want to move to Texas.
I liked how everyone in the office seems nice. In other words, nobody is looking for drama. There are moments of stress, but that's expected in any kind of company. The members of management are kind, but the downsides of the company is that there doesn't seem to be too much growth. I know a temporary employee in my department who has no idea whether they will keep him or not after he's finished the work he's there to do. I, too, don't know if I will be offered a full-time position after my internship because there are no open positions in our department. Also, upward growth is difficult because none of the upper-leveled management seems to want to leave their own positions. Everyone is basically just stuck being whatever position they are unless they add/create new positions. The benefits are not as good as they could be - there should be more vacation time available for employees. A really nice thing is that they have business casual dress throughout the week, and then jeans on Fridays. Overall, the company is a great company to work for...if you can get a full-time position.
Not much "Micro-Management", great company to work for - if you get a full-time position.
Stressful moments during busy times, not enough vacation time and benefits.
