    Pros

    Travel, team focus, close friendships/bonds with co-workers and mgmt

    Cons

    LONG hours, LOTs of spontaneous travel, must be willing to sacrifice life and limb to move ahead with Pavestone. I had a great time and learning experience while employed with Pavestone

    Pros

    It's location is ideal. Against the flow of traffic

    Cons

    Stone Aged company does not have an adequate means for tracking inventory. High turn over rate. And poor asset management by the upper tier of company. Low morale and lack of motivation. Implementation Fatigue ...Good plans in place poor enforcement .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in technology that would catapult the company past the competition in terms of product selection. Listen to the advise of the workers

    Pavestone Now Requires A Degree From Current Employees For Promotion!

    I have been working at Pavestone full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you can handle back-breaking hard work, every single day, then you'll have a job for life because they will NEVER fire you!

    Cons

    It is a very dangerous job which requires intense physical labor all year round, working outside, in the elements. After Pavestone was purchased by Quikrete they now require any new employees AND current employees to have a college degree before being considered for a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grandfather in the 300 or so employees that were hired by Pavestone, before the company was purchased by Quikrete, and allow them to still be considered for promotions. If the college degree rule stays in place there will be many employees leaving in a mass exodus.

    Pros

    Management and Co-workers are friendly and helpful. Learn new skills.

    Cons

    The pay is very low! My employees are having a hard time paying the bills. Travel out of town. Not a job you want if you have a family. Working 3 months in a row on Saturdays.

    I worked at Pavestone

    Pros

    The pay was very good as are the benefits which included health, 401K etc. The opportunity for moving up was also a positive situation.

    Cons

    The Senior management was very much like a college fraternity with leadership setting the example for hard driving social indulgences and many late night parties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They really need to clean house and bring in a fresh, new much more professional operations and sales leadership team!
