    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Centex (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Chance to gain much experience in Florida aggregate mining operations. I gained experience on crushers, jaw and impact, screeners sand screws, loaders, fishing and much more

    Cons

    the work demanded long hours, sometimes over seventy hours straight with no sleep or food. many aspects of the job were dangerous, and the employees were the most wretched group of miscreants I have ever associated with.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change anything, mining is an inherently miserable and dangerous occupation, many of the persons willing to work there are from the dregs of society.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Centex full-time

    Pros

    Team environment, freedom to achieve goals independently using unique skills and talents. Director gave me the freedom to climb the ladder and move into management roll as a reward for making strong choices within the team structure.

    Cons

    If you catch on to the freedom strings and lift yourself to a more rewarding roll you are celebrated. I've watched some folks flounder and it seemed to me that these folks were easily left behind as the support crew while the superstars shine on and reap the rewards.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a system that really takes care to watch over all employees and provides some focus on those that need more guidance to achieve success.

    Pros

    This is a stable growing company with new opportunities offered regularly. After you are here for a while, they offer to pay for your education.

    It takes a very long time to get a job at this company. I worked as a contractor for 2 years before being accepted as a permanent employee.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Centex part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Didn't work there for long. Not much to say. It was a more or less pleasant experience while I was there.

    Cons

    The company seemed somewhat disorganized, although it may have just appeared that way to me because I didn't get much insight into the company's workings.

    I would suggest you keep looking
