    Pros

    One of the topic glass glasers in the country 9 divisions located across United States. Worked with a small team, overall a good work environment, strong emphasis on personal accountability, sense of empowerment through work completed. Company had a good reputation, being around since the 1950s.

    Cons

    Well, on February 21 they laid off all 500+ employees in 9+ divisions. Doesn't look like any of them will be paid for work done after their last paycheck because the company ran out of money. Doesn't look like the company is bouncing back from this one.

    Update: On top of that, they bounced my last payroll check (half a month's work of work) and owe me for about half a weeks worth of work. I put in a claim with the bankruptcy court, but this is the 1st time I've ever had something like this happen with any employer. I can almost understand if it were to happen with a small “mom and pop" type shop, but not a large scale organization such as this one.

    After e-mailing the CEO, CFO, head of HR and our division president, I received no apology or explanation for my paycheck bouncing (via mail or otherwise). I see top executives being hired at their competitors presumably for their talent in the industry. Yet myself and hundreds of other employees are essentially left out in the cold by Trainor. No warning that they would be filing for bankruptcy and I was hired along with some other employees after they would have had to start preparing for bankruptcy fillings (less than 2 months). Pretty shady if you ask me.

    Pros

    Trainor is a great glazing company with a very fair pay strructure. Employees are rewarded for performance. Management treats employees with respect.

    Cons

    The training programs could be a little better. The facilities are overall good., but could be improved. Work hours are good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advice that one might make to the management is to provide better training to new hires at the company.

    Pros

    Good Pay. The work hours were good, allowing for early morning start and early afternoon ending.

    Cons

    Small size
    Poor management. The foreman could have been better. They could have been more helpful in instructing newcomers on the jobsite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The initial transition to the company was less than smooth, and corporate headquarters seems unorganized.
