    Employees Treated Like Dime A Dozen - Safety not priority-No work life balance

    Mixer Driver (Current Employee)
    Tucson, AZ

    ProsGood Health Insurance Covers Family for reasonable cost.

    ConsDrivers never know schedule, forced to come in at night with little notice. Safety of drivers and public put at risk because of this practice. Hours are consistently cut while management hires more employes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees have no value. An decade with company and no sick time offered. No training offered for advancement.

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

    Terrible place to work

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Glendora, CA

    ProsThe only pro I can find is the fact that I learned a lot here. I learned how NOT to manage staff.

    ConsThere is a lot of nepotism, no recognition for your work, the company teeters on financial ruin and never can afford to upgrade machinery or hire effective staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe old management, including the President need to be booted to the curb. The entire organization would benefit from a change in regime. The company has lost a good number of quality people over the years. Those who are still there are only hanging on until something better comes along.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Stable company with good benefits.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStability, competitive salaries, good focus on safety, environment. Industry will always be around with, as construction will never completely stop.

    ConsDemanding work on all levels; lack of good IT support and systems is very frustrating. Cuts to staff have not been reinstated with growth, putting a lot of burden on existing employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStronger management is needed in IT and administrative departments.

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

    CalPortland is an ok place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood co-workers, most are very friendly people.

    ConsCompany morale down and employees do not feel appreciated. This use to be a family-oriented atmosphere, but no longer. Pay as compared to industry or field is low. The changes of benefits inadversely affected the take home pay of employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to the morale of your employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I would not recommend working for this company to anyone I care about, family or friends

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe best part of my job are my co-workers.

    ConsManagement does care or support employees. I have been insulted on more than one occasion by my immediate supervisor. There is very little room for growth. The company has cut benefits and has not given raises in 5 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should pay closer attention to their management staff and how they treat employees. Happy employees are more productive and make less mistakes. Happy employees want to succeed. Management should partake in management training.
