Plant Operator (Current Employee) – West Point, VA – July 13, 2018
Allan Myers is an incredible place to work as someone who has been in the industry and enjoys that type of work. They're forever growing, and provide a ton of growing. They will however, work you to death.
I really like working at Allan Myers, but the truck I drive is very uncomfortable for me, and it takes a toll on my everyday.
Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Virginia – March 25, 2018
I love working at Allan Myers, but the truck I drive is very big and I move the seat up as far as it will go and I still can't reach the clutch without leaning forward. This takes a toll on my feet, back and legs and everyday I go home, I am sore. I love this job, and if I can get a new truck I will retire at Allan Myers, I like the crew I work with, management is good to me, I just need a new truck, that would make my job so much easier, and I will stay for the long haul.

Wasn't a bad place to work.. Had up to date equipment to work with also would make sure that safety was a big part of there training program... Always wanted to get there employee back home safe at the end of a workday...

Great place to work if you need money and want to get paid every week.. Its better if you don't have any kids. Takes up your whole life sometimes it depends on how you manage. I loved it and would go back.. You have to try it for yourself. You get a 3 month winter break to relaxe.
Welder (Former Employee) – Worcester, PA – January 14, 2018
This company doesn’t care about the employees that actually make the company money. It’s all about the people in the office. When they get slow your only a number to them and they will drop like nothing, it doesn’t matter how many years you worked for them. Too many people in management that never experienced out in the field and have no clue what it takes to get a job done
Concrete Laborer (Former Employee) – Worcester, PA – December 27, 2017
When I worked the motto was "Home Safe Tonight"....... that only applied to when the job was ON schedule. The work was hard and the hours were long but at least you had good people that were around to help.

Certain people get away with whatever they want, even drinking and doing drugs on the job. They preach safety but we'll put you in unsafe positions or unhealthy situations daily knowing that it is harmful to your health even when they're told by safety team not to put anyone there. Work you 80 hours a week taking you from your family and still demand more, then as soon as the job is done they "lay off" tell you to hang out for a few weeks and wait to come back with zero intention.
Pay and benefits
Long hours, no breaks, favoritism, unsafe situations, bad management, and unfair advancement.
Assistant Field Engineering (Former Employee) – Middletown, DE – September 18, 2017
I did my Co-op with Allan Myers for six months. I had the best experience working as Engineering Assistant with everyone at the 301 Project Middletown Delaware. Everyone was very friendly and they treated me very professionally.
The company has a great core value system in place. Very safe company to work for is very compassionate about employee health. In most of the quarries only night shift available for driving. It's a great company but a lot of inconsistencies and misinformation. Very high expectations of employees very demanding. Very hard to balance personal and work life with the unpredictable night shift schedule.
No set schedule, a lot of confusion about jobs you are required to do, not a lot of common strategies when it comes to training
Operator (Current Employee) – Fallston, MD – August 8, 2017
Unrealistic expectations, lengthly commutes, and very little work life balance. Management has their benefits payed for, and insurance costs more for employees on scale jobs. There is also very little room for merit based advancement; unprofessionally political.
