Challenging but fun.
Production Worker (Current Employee), Spokane Valley, WAJune 13, 2015
Hardest part of the day is waiting for that last 15 min of work to go by so you can go home and prepare for another day. Co-workers are awesome, become like your brothers and sisters. You will learn multiple jobs during you career, how ever long you decide to stay in, it is a lot of fun and very fulfilling.

Steel Laborer and department lead (Current Employee), Chandler, AZ.June 4, 2015
Pros: NONE
Cons: NONE
Oldcastle Precast USED to be a company worth working for. Not anymore. Poor management, lack of respect for their employees, poor pay, no hard work rewards, not even a thank you.

Fast paced production invironment.
Plant Forman (Former Employee), Morrisville, NCJune 4, 2015
Wide open all the time! I learned most of my production skills and the operation of Block producing equipment in the first years of employment with no prier experience. I then started participating in maintenance which became second nature as fast as production did. I'd like to thank the Production Manager at that time for recognizing my natural talent and kicking me right in the middle of everything. My twelve years at this company evolved me into a major key player in the Block industry. Very rounded well oiled environment with all the training I wanted from some of the best production/maintenance team members I still to this day have ever seen. The hardest part of this job was the ridiculous amount of hours expected to work which left almost no time for a family. The best part of this job was being able to work hands on with equipment that I was already infatuated with as a teen and becoming very good at many skills needed to advance in the Block Plant industry.

Capital Project Manager (Current Employee), TX, CO, ID, AZ, WA, OR, NCMay 8, 2015
Oldcastle Precast has given me great opportunities. I have managed multiple large projects as an owners representative all over the West and Texas. I have had the chance to work with many different cultures in the US with great success. Management has changed multiple times which has proven difficult to gain accomplishment in the job. Looking to not travel as much and be successful and accomplished.

IT (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAApril 7, 2015
Pros: Benefits
Cons: Short breaks
The work environment wasn't diverse and ethical. Some of the co workers were very helpful with years of work experience. The hardest part about the job were the work hours. The executive level associates lacked ambition and diversity.

Enjoyed the work, did not like the lead man
Production Worker (Former Employee), Chandler, AZMarch 18, 2015
Pros: great benefits, decent pay, good co-workers, good advancement possibilities
Cons: no breaks, bad lead guy
The work was awesome and the guys were great except the lead man. He was a micro-manager that puts everyone down daily instead of giving word of encouragement. Everyone else was great! The plant manager and his right hand guy are awesome too. Couldn't handle the lead man. That was the only reason I left.

Superintendent (Former Employee), IowaFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: good pay, good benifits, good safety program
Cons: micro managed, suggestions are not welcome on improving operations
Overall Oldcastle is a good company. The thing I'd have to complain about would be upper management. What I've noticed is that upper management likes to micro manage employees in the field. Now, I'm not sure if that's the case throughout the oldcastle network, but at my location that is the case.
