    Pros

    Responded right away when I applied to the job

    Cons

    The salary was 60-65k a year with 75% travel

    Increase salary ranges - not enough when you want people to travel 75%

    I worked at Trinity Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay and lots of overtime. Convenient location.

    Cons

    Very few days off. Lack of care for employees. No compensation for being away from friends and family.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be bonuses given for the extra work that people do to complete quotas. They should figure out a schedule that will get the quotas accomplished and allow employees time off to spend with family and friends.


  7. nice facility.

    Pros

    I was given the opportunity to move around and learn different aspects of the business and there were plenty of opportunities to dig into the details and learn new things or make improvements.

    Cons

    When business gets tough, decisions are made based on who knows you and likes you rather than on who are the best people for the job.

    Advice to Management

    More employee focus...take care of your most valuable assets.

    Pros

    i was able to get overtime usually anytime I needed it. And the work was never usually to hard to do.

    Cons

    Noone ever knew what was going on. You might come in one day and do one thing, and then undo it all the next.

    Pros

    Good team culture. Management is understanding of time off needed. Great place to learn advanced technologies for the willing employee. Training is offered although tough to get.

    Cons

    Pay is not isn't competitive enough to keep seasoned employees. It is hard to stay when any job offer a person gets will probably be a lucrative raise. The vacation policy is very strange. It amounts to one week vacation the first year of employment depending on what month a person starts. It is a business casual environment but the dress code is strict. Jeans are not allowed.

    Advice to Management

    More competitive salaries would go a very long way to creating lifers. People want to work there but employees are forced to leave for monitary reasons.

    Pros

    You take on the entire plant with no traing or guidance. There isn't a whole lot of advancement possibilites in upper Execitve leves in Tennessee. If you are willing to move, you might do well. Trinity gives one a great opportunity to try to figure out what is going on. The corporate office EVENTUALLY send some brings you in for training that doesn't happen while you are in the corporate office. If you are a STRONG laborer, welder, pipe-fitter, or electrician you have a great potential. If you have a strong desire to become a welder, or take welding classes - this very well might be a good company for you to work. Get some experience, get paid while you learn, then move on to a company where you can get paid for your experience and education. Trinity is a great place to learn welding.

    Cons

    There's a BIG turonver in middle and upper level management. Don't expect the people that have interviewed there to be there long after you have started.There's a BIG turonver in middle and upper level management.

    Advice to Management

    The potential trainer leaves a few weeks b4 employee is brought on board. The supervisor and HR manager that interviewed the new employee left less than 6 weeks after the employee was hired. Make sure the new HR manager and supervisor understand what their predecessors expected of the newly hired employee.
