    I have been working at Vulcan Materials full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They love to feed you for pretty much any reason. Ton of hours though not always voluntary. Safety culture.

    Cons

    Depending on position, it can be filthy or boring or stressful. Working hard or being smart doesn’t necessarily move you upward. Don’t like to do things right but will always do things twice.
