Good company to work for, upper management could be more visible in plants

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Argos overall is a decent place to work housekeeping of plants is not a focus.Plant management never leaves their office.Pay is good, plenty of overtime even when not wanted.Production is priority over everything else.

Pros

Pay, work hours, overtime

Cons

To much overtime at times when not wanted.

Good drivers

Good thing is that there is really good drivers there. Bad thing is that Argos doesn't care about there drivers. Management only care about Management. Thats the only company i ever heard that your whole family is in upper management and its not family own. So i would recommend going to a different concrete company.

Pros

Good drivers

Cons

Management, and pay

Long days short pay poor equipment

What’s offered on the job application sounds gold. Start you off with bad old trucks, pay by load IS NOT pay by load. To shorten it up, more hours you do (ot) the lower your “load rate” goes.

Terrible place to work at

Work long hours you don't have a life working at argos,,,they hire so many people but have no trucks for the new hires so basically you will have to come in late and wait for a driver to be done for the day making you average 5 or 6hrs a day

Management

Management could be better at holding people accountable. They could also focus on employee retention as in most companies in the USA are also experiencing significant turn over.

Pros

Mining Industry

Rotating 12hr shifts, heavy work, difficult working conditions, limited training, mediocre equipment, & bare bones workforce driving maximum production. Not for the faint of heart or anyone not willing to work hard in any conditions. Pay is fair, but you will earn every cent

Say goodbye to your family because you will never see them again

This company has a new plant manager who is anti-worker and is anti-union. Management has a profits before people mentality. Some of the workers I had worked with had worked more than 3 months without a single day off and not by their choice. The hours are horrible and their union contract unfortunately isnt strong enough to protect the workers from getting treated as subhuman. If you are looking to give up half of your life and sacrifice your dignity to help fill the pockets of upper management then this is the place for you.

Pros

Free uniform and culligan water machines (the plant's sink water is toxic)

Cons

Bad pay, terrible plant manager, unsafe working conditions

Fair pay for hard labor.

It’s an alright job. Though seasonal. So basically whatever is needed whenever it’s needed. But pay was always there for the most part. So it wasn’t all that bad I guess

Pros

Good pay, friendly co workers

Cons

Poor safety. Not much security in job.

All bad

Company does not care about anyone that is not management. Safety is not a focus at Argos. If you report anything at all......nothing gets done. Nut if someone reports on you....you will have to defend yourself, like management does not belive you at all.

Pbl

Pay by load in the tampa bay are does not average out well spending your day at small pumps as a ready mix driver. Choose another company that has an hourly base.

Decent money for local driver/No life Balance

If you don’t care be treated like a machine and earn decent money for drive local this a good place for you if not be away they squeeze drivers and when they need push you to take the last load even if you almost out of driving hours. They just care about loads and customers. All drivers are burned out

Managers are biases towards certain races.

Don’t apply to this company!!! Run very unprofessional and they’ll pay you if you depending on how many loads you get in week but that also depends if the manager likes you. Is unbelievable job environment with disgruntled managers!!!

Pros

Medical on first day of work

Cons

Not a safe environment for a person to work both manually and mentally.

Bad management, terrible pay

Dispatch is the deadliest form of cancer in this company . required to work/ be available 6days a week. You cannot schedule anything.. You live to work at this company. You do not work so you can live

Pros

Guaranteed 40 hrs

Cons

Old equipment

Management sucks

Management needs to be replaced, they don't care about the employees "DRIVERS" in-particular,under payed, pays no overtime, half time they all it...all of management look down upon the drivers...

Not too bad

The maintenance department needed some work but otherwise it wasn’t too bad. The trucks were old and they had problems keeping them going. Management was great most of the time just needed better equipment which I believe they have gotten some, just not enough

They will work you to death.

Argos could of been a good place to work if upper management was not worthless. They will promise you the world like every other ready-mix company. They put cameras in the truck and watch everything you do. You are not allowed to have phones. Favoritism and nepotism are normal job culture. Advancement is not based on merit or skill at the job. Paycheck were never steady it’s pay by load. They will only pay 2.7 hour’s for a job that will take 4 hours. You always feel rushed. The pay by load made it a cut throat work environment. In short there are better driving jobs than this.

Cons

No breaks, hostile work environment.
