I have been working at TXI full-time

Pros

Decent Pay
All training provided to people with no experience
Flexible work schedules if time needed for Dr Appts.

Cons

Long hours in the summer... often working 12 hr days - 6, sometimes 7 days a week
Hours dropped back to 40 hrs in the winter months, which can drastically impact the paycheck when you are used to the summer months, so plan accordingly
Often told on Friday that you are working on Saturday
If a paid holiday falls on a weekday, management likes to have you work that day and then take Friday off.. fine for some holidays, but 4th of July, New Years Eve, Christmas, should not be changed. And if there is a holiday, you can expect to work Saturday of the following week to make up for lost production days.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give employees advance notice before working on the weekend, not the day before.

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn new technologies

    Cons

    Lots of weekends with no comp time and very difficult to get pto. You need to call in sick in order to get time off. Unrealistic expectations in regards to work load with no raises and no bonuses. Weekend work in usually thrown on you at the last minute (like the Wednesday or Thursday before), management acts like it is a bad thing if you don't like to do it that way. My manager threw me under the bus when I was out at a doctor's appointment to my director after all of the weekend time I've put in and time taken away from my family. They have a very high stress atmosphere, very negative with nothing in return. So pretty much I have no personal time and no money. I was on call 24x7 for 7 months straight. The management doesn't like to hire people because they want bigger bonuses.

    Upper management and management in general do not care for their employees or their family life. They only care for their kids and wives and getting those big bonuses. They just need a warm body and number to assign to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    YOU NEED TO CARE FOR YOUR EMPLOYEES. Quit being greedy and address the human side of things.

    Pros

    It is nice to see that the product you provide has helped build a city. The fruits of your labor will be around for generations. The people are friendly.

    Cons

    This is a commodity driven sector. It is nice to have a company that prides itself on providing the best product but the bottom line is that the product must be at an affordable price.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep providing the quality product that you are providing. Continue to look for ways in which the product can be delivered at an affordable price to the end user.
