I have been working at Oldcastle Materials full-time (More than 10 years)
Great company to work with. You have the ability to really make a name for yourself at this national company if you're willing to work hard and volunteer to be on national teams.
None that I can think of. Great company focused on family and safety.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Oldcastle Materials (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.
4 separate interviews, 1st was to meet with the senior manager of the service desk, did and the interview went rather well. After I was told that they (Oldcastle) wanted to proceed with me meeting the level 3 team and the Director of IT. I was notified by the recruiter that he set up the second interview, phone interview and I called the director and had a pretty good conversation with him, after got good feedback and was going to meet with the level III team. Went back down to the Charlotte office and met with the level III team and a member of the Information Security team. This also went well, got some positive feedback and was told that I had to drive to Atlanta to meet with the IT VP! Mind you I live in Charlotte, 265 miles north of Atlanta, couldn't do a skype interview, had to meet me in person. I was told that I had the position if I made the trip. Got up at 4:30 AM on a Friday, in order to be there at 10:00 AM for the interview. This also went very well, was asked if I wanted to start as a contractor or a full time employee. I made the 4 hour trip back to Charlotte and didn't hear anything until the following Monday. Was told that they had to interview other candidates, due to a request from the CEO. Waited about a month and got the feedback today that they are just going to promote from within. I am glad that I didn't get the position as the communication is horrible, I was first interviewed because of my Microsoft SCCM and SNOW experience and during the interview process I was told that they were not going to purchase SCCM and wanted to go with an open source solution, then the 3rd interview was told that they were going to purchase SCCM, on the 4th was told that they were not going to buy it. Really???? I was expecting a little more professionalism, but I guess that I asked too much!
