    I worked at Lafarge Canada as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good hours and opportunity for OT, fair union and non-union pay, good communication, supportive team, excellent safety programs and training

    Cons

    Can be physical, repetitive depending on tasks, but job rotation and seniority generally counters this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job!

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Lafarge Canada in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went through a recruiting agency which I would not recommend to anyone. There are quality jobs offering the same or more pay posted on kijiji and indeed. My first interviews were with Robert Half International. Those were OK. It is more of a meeting than an interview. My interview at Lafarge was also OK. There were not many difficult questions although I should have asked more questions because I found out my role had not been clearly defined prior to my employment. That makes it difficult to exceed expectations when someone does not know what the expectations are.
