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

    Pros

    Very overtime friendly, if you wanna work the hours are there. You can gain lots of knowledge on how the rail yard works. All about safety. The Denver terminal has over 5,000 days of no injuries on the job.

    Cons

    Some of the truck drivers don't have the best of attitudes. Not the best on training new employees.

    Advice to Management

    More time for training new employees. Management should be more involved in the training as well.

    I have been working at Holcim full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    New plant most everything clean. Started off with a great culture, and attitude. Safety first! Safety first! If you don't feel comfortable don't do it!

    Cons

    Since merger place has went down hill. Production over safety! Production over safety! Management has lost all touch with workers! Bad morale everywhere! People leaving in every department.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to get there head screwed on straight and get there head out of the clouds! Care more about the good people you have at the plant so you don't loose anymore and less about trying to hire new kids!
