Driver, (Former Employee) –  Southern CaliforniaJanuary 1, 2018
To do this work you have to have a Commercial Drivers License (CDL). With a CDL you should be able to make, at least $18 dollars an hour and some places much more. While you usually make a little over $100 a day, you will end up working 15 hours to get it.

Lots of work and hours
COMMERCIAL TRUCK DRIVER/ ASSISTANT PLANT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Riverside County, CAOctober 28, 2017
Good place to work if you love lots of OT and working 6 days a week. Your experience will differ from plant to plant because some plants are better than others to work out of. Managers leave you alone for the most part unless you give them a reason to bug you. Most of your coworkers can be really nice and help you learn everything you need to know but most lack patience. Work days start at different times of the morning but during the summer month you do A LOT of night pours, so you might have to come in at 9pm or 2am or anyime in between. They try to make sure you get enough time off so that your well rested but 99% you won't be and you'll be tired all night while your working. As long as you can learn quickly and you don't mind work A LOT of hours and 6 days a week then Robertson's is a great place for you.
Pros
Paid Training, good pay, great health care plans and 401k
Cons
Long days and working 6 days a week and night pours.

Review of Robertson's Ready Mix
Concrete Laborer (Former Employee) –  Highland, CAJune 8, 2017
Typical day of work consisted of utilizing the proper tools for the job to correctly complete the task. The workplace offer an environment in which to work alongside like minded individuals and complete a common goal. The most challenging part of the job was slowing down to repair tool. However, the most rewarding part of the job was completing a job well done.
Pros
Success in team-skilled labor
Cons
Down time from the scheduled task

Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  Cabazon, CAOctober 22, 2016
Great place to work, as a heavy equipment operator you will operate anything from 777s, loaders, skidsteers, water trucks, dozers...etc. Plenty of room for advancement here. Or a great place to get your foot in the door. Just keep in mind you will work 70+ hours a week which is awesome for some but bad for others. (lots of time away from home)
Pros
Great enviornment, good place to start a career
Cons
When they say overtime they mean it. 70++ hours no down time

Everyday is different.
Cement Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Gardena, CASeptember 14, 2016
A fun job. Just get your loads, do your job and your good to go. Drive safe and have fun. There is no set schedule. You can work 10 hrs one day and work 15 hrs the next. You have no idea what time your start time would be for the next day until after 6pm the day before. You usually work 6 days a week. You usually average anywhere from 55 to 63 hours a week. Be careful though because after a while you will get burned out.
Pros
Good benefits and good pay
Cons
Getting burned out and no set scedule

Exciting and fun, always something new to be learned.
Cement Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaOctober 1, 2015
This is one of the most fun and outgoing jobs. Dangerous, but never the less exciting. A job to take very serious for your safety and the safety of others. Always took in consideration the safety of other drivers in the streets and freeways. As a professional driver you must be cautious and show respect for others, no matter their attitude or their driving rage. You must be in full control of your own actions.
Pros
Good salary, benefits and flexible saturdays.
Cons
Too many hours away from family.

Started in HR calculating hours for payroll and was transferred to Preliminary Clerk
Clerical (Former Employee) –  Riverside, CAJuly 31, 2015
I originally was hired to work in HR calculating hours for payroll. I was there for 4 months and they moved me to the Preliminary Clerk. I worked with account managers regarding companies that had deliveries of our concrete to their subcontractors or job sites, if they didn't pay I had to file preliminary info on the homes or job sites to get paid for our material.

Former New Hire Who Was Mislead By HR Department.
Driver (Former Employee) –  Orange CountyDecember 26, 2014
I was trained by Robertson's in June 2014 and finally licensed after months of ongoing phone calls to the DMV and HR Department. The little trick with them is they drag their feet in getting you licensed because of the high turn over rate of drivers.
Pros
Good Training
Cons
Mislead by HR Dept. about Hours and OT

Cement Mixer Driver (Former Employee) –  Redlands, CANovember 23, 2014
Even though the "job security" is there in the aspect of the company has been around for 30 plus years they still don't have it together they work you like there's no tomorrow for 6 days the only way to get the 6 day off is to be there for 15 years. Your only considered to be a seat filler; you get no sick days doctor excuse is nothing so don't have a family or a life unless it's Robertson's
Pros
Overtime (even if you don't want it lol}
Cons
no life or lunches

Help Desk Analyst (Former Employee) –  Corona, CAJune 23, 2014
There is a lot that Robertson's does well and there is so much more it can be doing better. I've never had any problems with anyone personally so I can't complain about that. Management overall is friendly, competent but also lacking.

I feel this company can be doing so much more but the workforce is growing old.
Pros
Free cake each month, 1 hour lunches, occasionally free lunches, great benefits
Cons
Low Compensation, no paid sick days
