Good management,, great support and trust, good products
Challenging as a results orientated company which l enjoy and perform better as l am a competitive person and enjoy the wins of both long and short term negotiations to both win new clients and to build a relationship and maintain a strong working partnership with my clients.

run by inexperienced car salesmen
good money but u earn it, por poor management, bullying, blame shifting, high stress, ignorance of the driving laws truck drivers must adhere to, lots of managerial back stabbing for advancement resulting in actual workers suffering high stress.

Large variety of work expeirnces
In the graduate programme, you will be exposed to a number of experiences and locations. It is important that an open mind is kept to ensure that you can take advantage of every opportunity.

Manager’s have there own agenda
Very bad company to work for.
When managers change so does your job description.

No job security, most people on a fixed term contract, very low wage.

Would not recommend working here.

Depending on which plant you are based
Work fluctuates depending on how well the team comunicates with one another. Safety is of utmost importance and is strictly enforced. Training for new employees is poor depending on your manager
Pros
Overtime
Cons
6 day weeks

Industry leader
Lafarge Holcim is an excellent place to work since there was a good work-life balance, flexibility with work times.
The typical work-day consisted of collecting data to publish / distribute reports to the stakeholders.

The hardest part of the role was working with an outdated system, whilst the most enjoyable aspect was getting opportunities of working on very interesting projects.
Pros
Excellent work-life balance
Cons
Old system.

Not a very desirable place to work, can’t even sing a new enterprise bargaining agreement after 2 years of it expired
When I started at holcim it was an awesome place to work, everyone got along and management were all good people,
The quarry ran smooth and there were no issues,

We got a new site manager everything went down hill from there, they cut , wages, overtime and they are still not looking at getting any better,

The reason I am looking for another job is because I don’t want to get stuck somewhere where everything if just going to drag me down with it , thenjust for me to try and climb back out of everything,

I have two little kids at home and a missus that I don’t like be cranky around because of work so it’s time to change and look for better options for a better career

Garbage
The last word in useless, worst money and if you do start with them you end up working along side ex crims, drug addict's and alcoholics. I gave Holcim one star across the board because there is no lower rating.
Pros
You don't have to wait long before you find out Holcim is sht.
