Kiln System Trainer (Current Employee) – Montevallo, AL – January 10, 2018
Lhoist is a good company that pays well. They do not plan very well and will take advantage of an employee to cover their lack of planning. They also lack a good training and advancement culture. You have to be willing to go outside the company to be able to learn new things. They are willing to promote from within and take care of their good employees. Job security is very good and they employee several long tenure employees.
Environmental, Quality & Safety Manager (Former Employee) – Peach Springs, AZ – December 14, 2017
Staff was supportive. Typical manufacturing stresses, but overall a good company to work for. I very much enjoyed the people and the locations. Good people and the nice thing was that the company is privately owned, so much better culture than publicly owned companies.
Company culture is not American and can often times be stressful because management never tells you about your performance and tend to backstab or play the blame game. Many employees are unhappy and are leaving because of this. It is a family run business and the family comes first. Employees come last. They took over some mineral businesses but still basically recognize themselves as a chemical lime company.
Stressfull place to work, big jobs with short deadlines tough and costic environment.
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – November 3, 2017
As warehouse manager I had to try and consolidate two different inventory dollar amounts on two different acoountin programs. When we switched to SAP it went a lot smoother. Promoted to the position of Maintenace Supervisor and the stress was unbelivable with a manager and two supervisors aour days were 10 - 12 hours long. We were each on call once a month for a week straight if not two weeks.
Coworkers are amazing/Management is selfish and always "I" instead of "we"
Logistics (Current Employee) – TX – July 23, 2017
Benefits are the only reason I would recommend working here. There are too many managers that have their own agenda and do not care about their team. They take advantage of others and will not hesitate to step on your back to get what they want. Was told way too many times that a promotion was in the future...that was only to get extra tasks completed and was never the true intention of management. Work 75+ hours a week for salary....no thanks.
Production Leadman (Former Employee) – La Porte, TX – May 2, 2017
I worked for this company for almost 10yrs. I left to better myself and my family as well as adding experience to my portfolio. I would love to go back to work for them so I could bring new ideas and outlooks to the company.
Porta Batch Foreman (Current Employee) – McKinney, TX – April 27, 2017
There is nothing typical about a work day with Lhoist. You must be prepared for anything. Learn to trouble shoot on the fly to maintain a steady work pace. Enjoy working unsupervised and Maintain a level of professionalism. I became very proficient in my mechanical and working knowledge of all things hydraulic.
Employee (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – April 14, 2017
Good company. Apex plant in Vegas has a relatively young workforce that really has no connection with the facility other than a place to draw a check. The culture is to do the minimum and expect the maximum.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Montevallo, AL 35115 – February 9, 2017
My time here was spent working in the lab. It's a large company with many employees. My supervisor completely trusted me to do my job alone. It was a very busy environment, but laid back at the same time.
Environmental, Health and Safety Manager (Current Employee) – New Braunfels, TX – February 4, 2017
Culture at most of the plants is driven by the local managers who don't have a good grasp on the Safety Professionals influence. Lot of push back and resistance to change. Some locations lack in implementation and acceptance of a Safety Management System - although corporate has it and follows it.
Lead Production Operator (Current Employee) – Harker Heights, TX – January 10, 2017
Manged and scheduled employees walk through custom houses with builder and homeowners to go over blueprints to make sure everything they wanted was to spec schedule all jobs and ordered materials for each job arranged crews for all jobs.
Northeast Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – December 12, 2016
I've been performing a market research role while with Lhoist to establish new business development for the company either through acquisition of existing operating plant or purchase of limestone reserves. Since beginning my position with Lhoist and with the economic times they have decided to shelve this project until a later date.
