Excellent career & learning experience

Maintenance Coordinator (Former Employee)
Joppa, IL

ProsLafarge has a nice salary structure and health benefits package. The company values safety more than many others and although the process of working safely for some is a pain in the rear, I welcomed it.

ConsNot many. A down or slow economy creates a "doom and gloom" atmosphere and "do more with less" attitude, but most all industries will experience the same. The cement manufacturing & distribution industry is like a roller coaster ride.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
