    No opinion of CEO


    Stable job and usually is secure, well defined roles and expectations, conveniently located for commuting, little supervision and one can perform on her own.


    Little career progress, mediocre pay, repetitive task - focus only to a small part of the whole. No well rounded development.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce favoritism to give all chance to grow. Do job rotation so that people get a chance for over all development. And explore potential in the people.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Holcim Canada (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2015.


    There was an initial phone screening, followed by an in-person interview with a panel. The atmosphere is corporate/relaxed. The interview was extremely unprofessional - the interviewers did not even know each other's names (and referred to each other by different names), and did not prepare for the interview at all (the interviewer went as far as to say to me that they will "wing it"), and scheduled another meeting and left half-way through the interview. I found this to be disrespectful and rude, and a very bad reflection on the company. I have conducted allot of interviews myself, and understand that every candidate has different personality traits - the interviewer was of the opinion that all candidates are "sales people", and so could not effectively detect potential. Overall, the most unprofessional interview I have ever attended, and I will not be considering working for the company - despite being unemployed, and despite their lucrative compensation and benefits.
