Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) – El Dorado Hills, CA – May 8, 2018
Cemex is a world wide corporation and one of the top three in it's industry. They are forward thinking and very safety focused. They are very diverse in their operation which leads to their success. They provide good training for those looking to getting into Management.
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) – Shafter, CA – April 26, 2018
It is a corporate culture that is focused on targets and not so much on the employees. The focus on targets was so intense that it seemed that we did not give the plans a chance to develop. More patience was necessary to get results.
Team Leader (Manager) (Former Employee) – Hickory, NC – April 23, 2018
At this place my job was to stack cement into a huge block. There I performed other duties such as weed eating, sweeping, electric chainsawing bushes, trees and other woods, pulling weeds from the ground. From: May 2013 to June 2013
There was never a typical day at Cemex. Cemax is the largest distributer of cement in the U.S.. They supply cement from coast to coast. One of the most difficult parts of working there was the language spoken with Cemax being a Mexican owned company. The workplace had a different culture. I was the corporate credit manager with branch managers on all coasts. This allowed my to travel about 80% of the time which I enjoyed.
When you say you are going to work at CEMEX you must prepare yourself to do so because from my point of view the company challenge every employee to be better in all the way and no matter what they would be right by your side to make it happend.
I consider that CEMEX has a good workplace culture, good benefits and salaries, and lots of other good things.
I really appreciate how CEMEX care about their employees.
Good place to work, benefits, Regularly promotions
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – March 25, 2018
I was a truck deliver for seam it to construction sites in Miami. The job did cause me to be to work at various times of the day and sometimes to work overnight. Most of the shifts I worked where 10 hour or more shifts.
Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 2, 2018
All meetings in Spanish or very broken english. Not invited into technical meetings that were necessary to carry on duties. Supervisor's English was very poor and communication and orders were constantly misinterpreted. Ideas were constantly (stolen) by supervisor and no credit given. Upper management does NOT manage their people professionally and they rely on poor supervisors that cannot speak correct English. Project handled by project managers that do not know anything about the project and therefore money is easily approved by them when requested. Poorly run company.
They like to spend a lot of company money on food and drinks.
Unnecessary Travel meetings that can be handled via technology.
Equipment and Truck Mechanic and Diesel Engine (Former Employee) – Brunswick, GA – February 19, 2018
I started when it was Florida mining and materials. then theygot bought out by south down,then Cemex bought them out. All was good until they bought out rinkor they kept all the managment of rinkor and the company went down hill!
I have been with Cemex 3 years now and although I usually make close to double the money in my field as a welder elsewhere I have considered that I am no longer traveling or on temporary jobs which for me makes it worth the sacrifices. I see many opportunities for growth in this company. I have learned a lot through this company and safety is really so much a priority we only work 50% of the time spent there. The other 50% is spent on breaks, meetings, inspections and safety procedures.
operator journeyman (Former Employee) – PHX, AZ 19ave – January 18, 2018
lack of experience in managment was detrimental to production. They are unable to make quality materials putting extra pressure on operators having to do three times as much work. No extra people to help created an unsafe environment and unnecessary stress and health issues for some.
They dont give you a lunch break!..What kind of mess is that. That alone should tell you.
Driver (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – January 17, 2018
Well they constantly lose drivers..what does that say about a company. If you notice most of these reviews that are not driver related give this company a good star rating so those positions my be ok. However, being a driver for them is not that great but if you need to make money..go for it.
They will feed you and overtime is plentiful in most cases.
Cemex dedication to safety is top notch. They are constantly looking for ways to improve on the safety culture. It sometimes get a bit much but it just shows their dedication to the well being of their employees
