    I worked at Oldcastle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, amazing support management, pay was good, company invested into manufacturing facilities, employees are like family. Paid holidays, good pto plan.

    Cons

    Very long hours for salaried and hourly employees. Weekend work very often. Differences between block and bag plants that could cause issues with middle management. Some managers were held accountable, whereas others were not. Some managers have been promoted due to length of service instead of merit. Long term employees can be difficult to see new points of view.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to everyone. This includes your plant management team. Remember that all sites are different, with different cultures. Do not fall into the thought that all sites can and will operate the same. Continue the good work with the support and corporate management.

    I worked at Oldcastle

    Pros

    Good culture, great benefits and fair pay. I felt respected and valued as an employee and met some great people who were fun to work with.

    Cons

    Management was not always forthcoming. There were a lot of "secrets" and sometimes a feeling that changes were coming with no idea of what or when.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more transparent when dealing with your employees. They deserve to know if there re imminent changes coming that will affect them

    Pros

    Oldcastle provides great benefits and hire quality people at the lower administrative levels. Oldcastle also offers quality community enrichment programs and strives for excellence in workplace safety.
