Great place for advancement
Plant Operator (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXMarch 11, 2014
Pros: working by myself, great benefits
Cons: not enough time for family
A typical work day would be to keep a constant eye on incoming material, keep a look out for damaged clips, belts screens, etc. Help keep and maintain a clean work environment as well as upkeep to rock quarry plant. I learned many procedures and skills while working for MMM. Management was good and understanding as well as the co-workers, unfortunately – more... half of the employees were related to management so it sometimes became a matter of favoritism. The hardest part of the job was not knowing when you were done with your shift, as a plant operator, you are always the one left behind to finish all the little things. The most enjoyable part of the day was the drive home. – less

Senior Accountant (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXOctober 31, 2013
Pros: great compensation & benefits
Cons: very, very good ole boy network. only whites get promoted or retained.
Martin Marietta is in the construction industry. Many employees have long tenure and have moved up through the ranks. However, the culture is very conservative and out-right politically incorrect. Refinement of employee demeanor unfortunately did not conicide with promotions.

Consequently, if you do not like football or if you are not married and actively – more... procreating, there really is no place for you in Martin. – less

It was a very good company to work.
Senior QC Technician (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCOctober 2, 2013
It was a very good company to work. The pay was great and the turn around was low. The culture and diversity of the company was a big plus. The benefits were good except for prescription plan.

long days, work enjoyable-management lacks
Weigh Master (Former Employee), Denver, COSeptember 10, 2013
I loved the job itself however the management team lacks. Issues/needs for employees take way too long to be addressed. Information does not always get passed along the proper channels to those who need it. They do not value their employees as much as the dollar, nor do they uphold their policies in a consistant manner. Too much favortism.

You'd better be good at stabbing people in the back and have a 4yr+ degree to succeed
Construction Materials QC Technician (Current Employee), Denver, COAugust 14, 2013
Pros: benefits
Cons: everything else
The only positive thing I have to say about Martin Marietta is that they have good medical benefits for a reasonable price. The rest of their qualities are poor at best. Examples: I know half a dozen people (aside from myself) that have been in the same position for ten years or more with aspirations for career advancement that are stuck because this – more... company has an unwritten rule requiring a 4 year degree to go anywhere. The only exceptions are the people that were good at stabbing others in the back to move up, and the occasional promotion to get quell a situation that would result in a lawsuit. If you have aspirations for a career, find a better place. Its not hard. – less

Best job I have ever had.
Senior Quality (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCJune 19, 2013
Pros: bonuses; awards; dinners
Cons: dust dust and more dust
I was first to arrive at work. I opened the office and made coffee. I would then go to my lab and gather samples for the stone and sand. Test samples and other materials then consult with manager and co-workers any failures in the tests. Determining the best way to correct the problem required experience and knowledge of procedures. This was the hardest – more... part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with contractors and NCDOT to correct trouble at the job site. – less

Quality Control Supervisor (Former Employee), Augusta, GAFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: family atmosphere, great compensation, will advance within company
Cons: office politics, hr
If you have a thirst to learn about geology, manufacturing, and problem solving, this is a great place to work. Wonderful family atmosphere and management is always willing to help. My brother almost died in a motor cycle crash and I was immediately told to go and be with my family.
But as with any large company, if you are not good at politics and – more... dealing with a tough HR, be ware. – less

It was a fun and exciting place to work at.
Asphalt Plant Operator/Dispatcher (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJanuary 3, 2013
Pros: good hrs when the weather was good
Cons: bad hrs when the weather was bad
A TYPICAL DAY WAS GOING IN EARLY MAKING ASPHALT WITH NO PROBLEMS IN THE PLANT & SHIPPNG THE MIX TO THE CUSTOMERS.I LEARNED HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THE CUSTOMERS FIRST SO THEY COULD KEEP ORDERING FROM OUR COMPANY & OF COURSE TAKE CARE OF THE PLANT SO IT COULD BE AVAILABLE TO SERVE THE CUSTOMERS. DID DO A BIT OF MANAGING ON THE FELLOW CO-WORKERS & THEY WERE – more... ALL GREAT TO WORK WITH EXCEPT FOR ONE. THE HARDEST PART WAS LOSING MY JOB. THE BEST PART WAS GOING IN EARLY MAKING THE MIX & DEALING WITH THE TRUCK DRIVERS & CUSTOMERS & RUNNING THE PLANT & DISPATCHING BOTH AT THE SAME TIME . – less

Metal – January 22, 2013

Production is an essential part of business, yet meeting production goals with unsafe practices is not within MMM code of conduct. Management will come after you for reporting anything unsafe, Management will favor relatives and friends all the while leaving your equipment unsafe and in desperate need of repairs. Management is incompetent and WILL value production over human life. Good place to work if you want to keep quiet and never report any safety violations nor any violations of company policies. MMM is trying to buy Vulcan Materials and during this process MMM has neglected to fix safety concerns just to try and save money. Bottom Dollar is do not work for MMM unless you do not value your life!

summary
Labourer (Former Employee), Aulds Cove, NSAugust 22, 2012
Pros: overtime paid really good
Cons: management played too many games.
no chance , or hardly any chance for advance. favortisim is a high priority for management. very low morale among workers, not a nice place to work.management would get you to do unsafe work, if you refused there would be negative consequences, ask you to run unsafe equipment,a good place to get hurt, or hurt someone else.
