Arrogant and creeps

Maint, Superintendent (Former Employee)
San Antonio, TX

I worked at Martin Marietta Materials full-time for less than a year

ProsGood crew, poorly paid, but always had money for new trucks, cook outs, parties, trips and showed no interest in securing the mine site to prevent children from coming onto the mine site and falling off a 200 foot high wall (cliff)

ConsVery poor management, crew, poorly paid, but always had money for new trucks, cook outs, parties, trips and showed no interest in securing the mine site to prevent children from coming onto the mine site and falling off a 200 foot high wall (cliff)

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't buy new UN needed trucks spend the money to repair equipment, routinely

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Work all the time and avoid getting stabbed in the back.

Plant Manager (Former Employee)
San Antonio, TX

I worked at Martin Marietta Materials full-time for less than a year

ProsThey pay you but not very well. They do have some newer plants but that means fewer people to keep cost down.

ConsYou get to work all of the time. You start at 5 am and get to go home around 7 pm. Don't forget you get to work the weekends also. Don't come in on Sunday you get yelled at. Sales, QC, HR, and Management all spend time pointing fingers and trying to stab one another in the back. They do not fix the actual problems. So if you like long crushing hours and getting blamed when your employees do something dumb its a great company to work for.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to hire and retain managers. You cannot rely on three or so people to run a 24/7 operation.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Awful, Just Simply Awful....

QC Technician (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Martin Marietta Materials full-time for more than a year

ProsThe Denver Area has the best people, specifically the truck drivers, that I have ever met in my entire life. They are simply an incredible bunch.

ConsThe Denver Area has the worst people, specifically the sales, QC department heads, and upper management, that I have ever met in my entire life. They are simply an awful bunch.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not expect that insults, degrading behavior, threats, physical threats, backstabbing, and politics will get you far with your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It pays the bills, but stay out of the operations side if you can.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Martin Marietta Materials full-time

ProsPay is OK, maybe slightly below industry standards. Most people are nice to work with.

ConsArea management expects those who supervise and manage the quarries to do so with almost no manpower or resources. Very common for a manager to be doing 2 or more people's duties for months at a time because running lean is the "new normal". 12+ hour days are the standard, plus mandatory weekend work. Not a good fit if you have anything in your life that interests you besides work, because the work/life balance is a joke.

If you have an engineering or other degree I would recommend district/division/corporate positions only, because you will get worked to death in the operations.

Advice to Senior ManagementStaff the operations adequately. Don't expect salaried employees to work an absurd amount of hours. Burned out employees are not safe or effective.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
