Great place to work, but have lengthy layoff periods each year
Maintenance (Current Employee), Calera, ALOctober 23, 2014
I really like working at Vulcan Materials. My co-workers and boss are good people with which to work. Two things about the job that make it less enjoyable are lengthy layoffs (especially around the holidays) and hours/shifts are always changing. I prefer a job with more stability.

Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee), Eastland, TXMay 21, 2014
Pros: sitting in an air conditioned cab all day, very little physical labor
Cons: eat lunch and take breaks in our trucks when we can
I come to work from 6am-6pm Monday-Saturday. I don't get paid as well as I would like to but all of the over time compensates for it, I guess. I sit in a truck or piece of equipment all day. It gets boring. I get along with everyone I work with. Its a decent job but I feel like I have no time to spend at home with my family anymore because of all of the over time. There is no change of advancement for me, either which is why I am looking elsewhere. The same people working there have been there forever.

Plant Administrator (Former Employee), Tucson, AzOctober 10, 2013
Pros: they provided lunch once a month for birthdays, company outings
Cons: it was a dusty environment and out in the middle of no where
A typical day at work was accounting, working with management on proposals for plant upgrades, new equipment, procedures. Writing PO's for purchases, backing up dispatch duties.
I learned that deadlines, accuracy, attention to detail were very important to them.
My manager was great always helpful, upbeat, good moral booster.
My co-workers were fun, experienced, loyal and dedicated.
The hardest part was inventories at the end of each month.
The great work environment, the way the employees were treated.

VENDOR COORDINATOR AND AGGREGATE INSPECTOR (Former Employee), Dahlonega, GAAugust 31, 2013
Pros: many incentive bonuses
Cons: much dust.... silicone particles. masks were worn most of the time.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with my Plant Manager, who gave me many opportunities to grow and experience new things.

Working with two wonderfully talented and friendly ladies made it enjoyable, especially since we were a great team. We were never "behind" on any task.

I especially glad for the opportunity to be one of very few women in the United States to become a certified DOT State Highway Aggregate inspector. I studied hard and trained for months with chemicals and ovens designed to determine the life of each aggregate sample taken. When I took the test for certification, I was in a room with 11 men, me being the only woman. Half of the class did not pass, in fact the Administrator of the test said that most people don't pass their first time!!! I passed!!!! Very proud of this and also sad that the company was bought out.

Laborer (Former Employee), Kankakee, ILAugust 6, 2013
This company was outstanding to work for. I learned alot about the mining process of limestone and maintenance of the production plants. Management enforced safety. All of the workers looked out for each other. The hardest part of the job was efficiently maintaining the production plant. I learned something new everyday.
