Termination
Production Laborer (Former Employee) –  Commerce, CAJuly 19, 2018
They fired me because they said I had too many call outs, being tardy basically all of which were untrue. Based on the information that was given to me, I didn't even come close to being terminated based just on that reason alone. They can fire you for any reason they want to.
Pros
Good hours, pay
Cons
Co-workers

Back stabbers...2 faced employees...favoritism and shifty schedules...they don't care if you have a family and you can never plan on doing anything except working too many days while senior drivers get weekends off...only thing good is the money...still not worth working there though....
Pros

A place with a lot of potential that goes untapped
Anchor Products-Sakrete (Current Employee) –  Holbrook, MAJune 17, 2018
This could be a really great place to work for. However, one hand often does not know what the other is doing. Communication is lacking top to bottom.

Hated that job
Fleet Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 16, 2018
This was the worst job I ever had. To many managers overstepping other managers. Long hours and hot. Multiple hats and only get paid for one. No clear since of leadership. No room for growth. HR screwed up on my pay.
Cons
Hated everything about that place

Very challenging job but also very skilled job.
Insulator/sheet metal (Former Employee) –  Covington, GAJune 13, 2018
Change in a mandatory three layers cloth for work. Ive learned how to cut glass, insulate it. Move very large types of glass with huge magnetic machine operators. Also shading the glass. Very strong management around the work area. They have been in business over along period of time, many years... The company provides benefits and pay very well. I would refer a friend to work with Old Castle. The hardest part about the job is, having three layers of cloth on, bearing the heat, while working a 12 hour shift.
The most enjoyable part about the job is, learning how the glass is used, and what companies use glass from Old castle.
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
dealing with the heat

Only if you REALLY need the money
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Nowhere, OKJune 12, 2018
First, if you get a night job, it’s a death sentence. At minimum, you’re working 12 hours a night. The facility isn’t climate controlled and you have to wear thick cut proof sweaters and leather chaps. It’s for safety reasons but what happens if you suffer a heat exhaustion/stroke? They’re slow to spend money to make the conditions better for their workers. The checks look great but you’re too tired to do anything more than pay bills and buy food. If you live alone and need money, it’s perfect. If you’re looking to advance, go elsewhere.
Pros
Pay is good and you’ll make full time if you work
Cons
Long hours, inhumane conditions.

A very stressful place to work
Machine Operator/Fabricator (Former Employee) –  Perrysburg, OHJune 4, 2018
Oldcastle is a very stressful company to work for, especially if you're African American. The pay is mediocre and the bonuses are way below industry standard. The fabrication department on 1st shift is very segregated and African Americans are not allowed to work in the more less stressful area. There non union, so everyone will not be treated equally.
Pros
It's a job
Cons
Breaks are only 15 minutes and the building is not climate controlled.
