    Current Employee - Environmental Intern in Alpena, MI

    I have been working at Lafarge as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great culture- everyone is very personable. Safety is top priority. Great opportunities to grow within the company. The company takes good care of its employees.

    Cons

    Wages are salaried which can be frustrating when working more than 40 hours every week. It is just something to take into consideration when offered a job there.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Lafarge in August 2012.

After receiving applicants for the position a review of the work history from resumes was conducted and a short list of candidates was assembled. The remaining candidates were asked to complete an online profiling assessment. Interviews were scheduled with a panel of peers and management. The panel had selected a mixed list of behavioral and job specific based questions for the interview. All candidates were asked the same questions.
