      Direct supervisor is rude, lacks communication, angers quickly, even verbally assulted and physically grabbed, keeps us sheltered from other parts of the company and upper management

      Pros

      Cons

      Lack of training Upper Management wants to lead this company as if they were in Mexico If you want to growth within the company you better be from Monterrey, Mexico (upper class) or nothing It is a man industry, so ladies do not have a chance A lot of favoritism Poor salaries Upper management counting the pennies and spending the dollars in themselves

      Pros

      *Cemex has plentiful work thats keeps you busy all year around. * Very good benefits for you and your family. * Very Good equipment. New and used trucks and they do a great job maintaining them. *Safety oriented. Paid training * They have over 15 plants throughout the Houstonland area so it convenient to commute from work to home. * 2 weeks vacation Sign on bonus that broken up throughout the year. Up to $5,000 for the first year only. Plenty of uniforms with laundry service provided. Guarantee 40 hours of a based hr pay for days that are cut short because rain outs, or slow business week.

      Cons

      *They pay their drivers by the load and Chinese overtime, NOT BY THE HOUR! Which makes the job competitive and stressful when working long hours. *Did i mention long hours? Cemex run their drivers 40-65 every week. * Cemex drivers aren't allowed to take brakes during working hours and aren't allow to stop to get food or anything while in the truck. *Horrible Dispatching and favoritism. *Every day that you work, you have to call in to an automatic scheduling system the night before to find out what time you are to start work as early as 2am- 9am to start your day and they have the right to work you up to 15hrs twice a week and 14hr the rest or the week to utilize a drivers 70 hour work week... *The Management philosophy is outdated and un-effective basically the Drivers and the batchmen can easily the plants. **No Wet Loads! If a driver delivers a wet load to a customer that can't be used, cemex garnish and docs that drivers check. They deduct $7 off ever load, for 30 consecutive loads for his mistake or miscalculation!** *Needless to say, the employee turnover rate is ridiculous. *Upper Management nor HR doesn't seem to appreciate nor compensate their drivers properly for the great job that they do and the long that work. SMH.

      Pros

      boot allowance- fair holiday pay--good medical options -finally starting to get 401k contributions back up ( although we had our pension taken away)--- safe equipment ---

      Cons

      management will only address problems with drivers not ones they have ---main focus is how to somehow blame drivers for as much as possible ---dispatch management is directly family related to upper management so we have no one to go to .-as of the first of the year Saturday seniority has been taken away --we hire inexperienced people to drive --pay is $3.00per hour less than our own plants only 20mi away .--load tickets rarely all correct , all you get is "call the driver ahead of you "

      Pros

      Company had relatively good benefits, some internal support structure and training. Operating in multiple countries allowed diversity in companies future.

      Cons

      Constant turn over of key personnel and managers. Seems like every 3-6 months some type of upper management restructuring happening, new job titles for the same job. No long term loyalty to the employees, outsources as much as possible.

      Pros

      Lots a training and more training so they pay you for training and more training. They provide food at the training. No weekend work. They don't know what you do they look at numbers. Decent company car provided. Good benefits. Good life work balance.

      Cons

      Too much training, low pay, low moral, no leadership, no promotions, low pay increases, your are a number not an appreciated employee, unorganized upper management, you train your manager, no improvements made. Even if your doing a great job no one will tell you. If your doing horrible job no one will tell you. Promotions are based on time with the company not promoting the best employee.
