Terrible
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Brompton SA12 November 2017
No hours except the normal 7.6 hours a day after being told alot of overtime was available to get me to come over to the company. Promise the world but deliver nothing. Never any work (brompton, adelaide) after 7 months made half the brompton site take involuntary redundancies. Terrible management. Working boys all ok, good to work with them. As a company wouldnt waste your time.

OK to work for
Quarry Operator (Former Employee) –  Townsville12 February 2017
Quarry work. They promise opportunities for advancement but don't give them. They promise opportunities for transfer but don't honour that either. Salary is good but only because of the enormous hours worked ... 12 hours per day 6 days per week. No work life balance.

Good place to work enjoyable job.
Loader driver, trainee batcher (Former Employee) –  townsville Queensland6 August 2015
Check chemical stock; dip cement silos for levels; checked water levels at pits; turned water pump on to transfer water to front pits.

Pre start for loader; cleaned out first wash bay pit and fallout pits. Once that was done I checked orders and answered phones.

Went back and maintained stock level in bins with product. At the end of the day made sure all bins were full for next day. pushed stock piles up. Cleaned the front area under the sock.

Hardest part of the job was the constant long hours for big jobs.
Most enjoyable was the work and the employees.
Pros
good work place
Cons
long hours

Professional company with great training programs
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Brisbane, QLD2 February 2015
If you are looking to work for a large multinational organisation that offers a variety of channels to branch off for career development I would suggest looking at Holcim.

As an account manager the role was diverse where no two days felt the same. I learned a great deal during my time with Holcim including improved time management and how to interact as part of a large organisation.
Pros
Career development, training programs
