Customer Relations (Current Employee) – Gainesville, VA – December 14, 2014
I enjoy what I do. Helping people makes me happy and I continue to look for new ways each day to develop and improve their experiences. Management at my office could be handled differently, but we work with it.

Director, Healthcare Market Development (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 7, 2017
Oldcastle presented me with an opportunity to help build a specialized integrated business unit called OBS. I was the healthcare SME and Market Leader. It was challenging as I had never been in a market/business development role before. I thoroughly enjoyed the organization, the leadership and the challenges. A great organization which I fully support.
If you like shoveling mud and like hard this jobs for you. I could do this job at a younger age but seems to much for my body now. Management is good at supervisor lvl but not any where close in foreman
Corporate Recruiter (Current Employee) – New York State – November 1, 2017
I enjoy my job at Oldcastle. We are offered many benefits besides the typical PTO and medical. The company often provides lunch for us, or other perks like tickets to games etc. Culture in the office is pretty relaxed but sometimes management does breath down your neck like they don't trust you. I also feel that my manager is a little under qualified. He doesn't know how to discipline the people in the office, but other managers are good.
Good benefits, good culture in the office
some management issues, no flexibility for appointments.
Specialist (Former Employee) – Colorado – October 31, 2017
Good corporation. Safety oriented. Good health care. Needs improvement in developing people and training of new employees. Overall corporate leadership is good. I would suggest resources be used to train and develop employees who show potential for long term employment. Large company with different businesses. Some seem to be better than others as it pertains to employee and business development.
3D Modeler/Graphic and Visualization Designer (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – October 25, 2017
I worked with Oldcastle precast as a long term contractor. Overall it was a very positive experience for me, though I was not well associated with the culture or day-to-day workplace. My manager, though was excellent, and I enjoyed working with him.
very easy to work with
being an outside contractor, I was always a bit concerned about job security.
Operator (Current Employee) – Florida – October 16, 2017
The management is rude! If you need to go to the bathroom you have almost to beg! The don't believe in human rights, if you ask for a raise the answer is NO! Even if your evaluations are always 100%..... No overtime, poor salary!
Loader/Unloader (Current Employee) – Covington, GA – October 10, 2017
long hours, poor pay, poor working conditions, limited growth potential, poor management, poor training. poor employee retention practices. leadership is not concerned with their employees well being, only the bottom line. culture of negativity.
Great benefits / lack of communication between management and emp.
Customer Service Coordinator (Current Employee) – Newnan, GA – October 10, 2017
The biggest problem is the lack of communication between management and their employees. In most cases, the employees don't feel secure enough in their positions to bring up problems and possible solutions to their supervisors. They do have great benefits and their HR is the best.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Port Saint Lucie, FL – October 4, 2017
Definitely a hard place to work for the rest of your life. They do pay well but offer no benefits. If you are just starting out then you can working here short term. However, if you have goals and plans for your life I don't recommend working here long term.
