OUR COMPANIES

Most companies expand for two reasons: To extend their reach so they can serve more customers, and to extend their product line so they can create new options.  At Lehigh Hanson, we've done both. Our affiliated companies enable us to take on practically any project in North America, and to deliver a volume and variety of products that most of our competitors simply cannot match.

​Over the years, the company has grown through a series of acquisitions and partnerships. We've been fortunate enough to acquire strategic assets across North America that have helped us expand our geographic reach, and have enabled us to provide a broader spectrum of products and possibilities to the markets we serve.

    I have been working at Lehigh Hanson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company is a part a large global organization, HeidelbergCement, which in the past 25 years has really moved from being a static German company to an impressive industry leader. IT is very state-of-the-art. A lot of sharp people, who seem to be much younger than the industry average Compensation is very competitive. Strong feeling of job security. Company has been growing at a good speed and made several large acquisitions which they have successfully integrated.

    Cons

    Due to the size of the company, there has is naturally a large amount of reporting and a fair amount of bureaucracy. Not much company spirit or enthusiasm. Lehigh North corporate environment is a bit sleepy.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Lehigh Hanson (Tucson, AZ).

    Interview

    Got an in person interview then sent a computer guided interview and never heard back. The in person interview went well but the computer interview was more difficult because you're expected to talk into a computer with nobody on the other side. Conversations are much easier and natural than simply answering a prompt staring at yourself on a computer screen.
