Management Lacks direction and knowledge
Project Manager / Estimator (Current Employee), Newnan, GAJune 12, 2014
The company lacks focus. Local management changes constantly (every 2-3 months) and does not try to learn from the seasoned veterans of 10-17 years.

Not the best morale
CNC Machinist (Current Employee), Terrell, TXJune 5, 2014
Pros: hours
Cons: bad morale
Nice hours, Although the chances for advancement are slim to none.
Low pay, And Never know from day to day if you are going to get let go. No comfort in knowing if you have a job. Constant rumors and drama.

Machine operator (Current Employee), Napoleon, OhioMay 15, 2014
Pros: bensfits, advancement, pay, overtime
Cons: hot during summer, loud, 12hour days
Management is awesome, have a problem it gets resolved. Boss man is not over your shoulder all day. Friendly co workers from machine ops up to plant manager and everyone in between. Rotation in the days work allows plenty of time off while still getting 36 hours one week and 48 the next.

NOT AN ORGANIZED COMPANY AT ALL.
Templator (Former Employee), Nashville, TNMarch 14, 2014
They seem great when you first get hired.THEN YOU FIND OUT NOONE THERE ACTUALLY GIVES A F**K ABOUT DOING THEIR JOB. Fired for no reason other than the manager could not do her job. After I was fired by her, she was fired & then over a year later I was re-hired but the new manager never followed through on getting the truck or tools together to get me – more... started....I waited and was lead on for weeks. They are not professional at all. – less

I Unintentionally bruised the supervisor's ego. As a result I was given a bad review. It was down hill from there. I was let go a month later.

Production manager then night shift foreman (Former Employee), Sierra Vista, AZ then North Salt Lake, UTJanuary 25, 2014
Pros: decent pay, but the company owned you and you were at their beckon call
Cons: everything else especially the co-workers
Very poorly managed. Very unsafe work environment, unless there is a need for more product then no safety at all. I would get called on Saturday morning and would be told we are having a meeting in Tucson and I needed to be there, I was on vacation and out of state, didn't matter I had to come back early...lol no! Young Block Co. in Arizona was very, – more... very poor. Everyone was cut throat to get advanced higher. So I transferred to Amcor Masonry Products in North Salt lake, Ut. This plant was an absolute joke. No maintenance and always breaking down, then get yelled at because production goal wasn't met. Day time machine operator constantly sabotaged equipment. Gave up a 5 year career with oldcastle APG and found another job. – less
