    Cronyism at its best

    Credit Specialist (Former Employee) Orlando, FL

    Good place to work

    Laborer (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsKept busy, when economy is good there are as many hours as you want. They dont mind paying overtime so its the only way to make any real money.

    ConsTough work. Also once the economy slows down in any way, people get let go left and right. This seems to come more with any industry that is tied to construction though.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to manage boom and bust better.

    Good for a few years (3-4) but job becomes too repetitive if you don't take any opportunities within the company.

    Environmental Manager (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsGood benefits, depending where you work you boss can make a difference, Good bonus compared to other positions. It is better to work near of for the Corporate office.

    Cannot really get promotes unless you are in business or operations and you know the higher ups.
    Top management is in Mexico. USA corporate in Houston.

    Heartache at Cemex

    Concrete Mixer Truck Driver (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsReally can't think of any!

    ConsHad to call tape every night at 6:00 Pm. to get start time for next day, many times after you got in at your scheduled time you were sent home! Truck boss would tell a person one thing and do something entirely different. They have been trying to get rid of union employees since the company was bought from Rinker, have union and non union plants and put a gag order in effect so that union employees could not speak with non union employees! Supervision refuses to try to work with employees! Company went from one of the best places I ever worked when it was owned by Kiewit & Sons, United Metro Materials, etc. to the worst place I ever worked when Cemex bought it out and I worked there for many years!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet new management and quit playing games!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
