    I have been working at CEMEX (USA) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, great 401 K company match, I have ownership of my area of responsibility, upper management is Great! A lot of training invested in employees

    Cons

    Lower management..... some - not all, "supervisors", are not very professional resulting in juvenile behaviors of those they lead.

    Advice to Management

    Senior and Junior Executives should be more visible at Safety Meetings and get to know employees at ALL levels.....our new VP is doing this and it is GREAT!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at CEMEX (USA) (West Palm Beach, FL) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Started with an hour long phone Interview the week before Thanksgiving with HR. The call was a casual 2-way conversation and we both learned quite a bit about each other.

    Two weeks later they contacted me to schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager on December 1st. We spoke for an hour and the manager did most of the talking. The conversation flowed well and he provided a strong breakdown of the position and what they were looking for. A week and a half later they called to schedule an on site interview in 3.5 weeks on January 5th.

    Onsite interview lasted several hours and included discussions with hiring manager, his boss, one of his coworkers and HR. Questions were mostly aimed directly at the job and they provided an overview of the company’s beliefs/philosophy. Interview also included lunch at a restaurant and a quick tour of the area. Everyone was friendly and interviews were well organized. 2.5 weeks later I got a call.
