    I worked at CEMEX full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good money when the hours are good. Managers are easy to work with and stick up for the drivers.

    Cons

    Family life is non existent. You never know your start time until 6pm the day prior and you never know what time you will be off. Some days are 15 hours others are 2 hours. Hours fluctuate week to week. Some of the mechanics are lazy and can be rude at times others are great.

    Advice to Management

    Consider working regular shifts. Safety is supposed to be Cemex' s top priority but there is no way to adjust to the hours. Take into consideration your employees health and safety.
