    I worked at Holcim (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Holcim was a place I was at for 10 yrs. I have to say that it was a muscle and blood job on a good day and dirty but I have never had a job where I have learned so much I had great pride in my job and it was very rewarding the plant manager had an open door policy and was happy to listen to you we even had a plant manager who wanted to see why things were in the shape they were and wanted to see the daily struggle and he worked a full shift with us on the floor and was just as dirty as we were at the end of the night very huge for the hourly and great respect for him as well as he had for us 2009 come around and the economy crashed and it shut down

    Cons

    Dirty job, hot job in the summer and the coldest in the winter

    Advice to Management

    Always listen to your hourly people who work it every day they know best what is going on. When you lose touch with your people you lose touch with your plant and that is a fatal mistake
