    Pros

    - Wasn't worked like a dog
    - Allowed freedom to choose what projects to work on
    - Flexible with work hours
    - Low-stress environment
    - Friendly coworkers
    - Good treatment/respect from boss

    Cons

    - Didn't always have enough direction (desired deadlines and objectives weren't always made clear)
    - HR is confusing and difficult to communicate with

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps make the payment process a bit more clear to start with. Very good gifts toward the end of the internship, good decision. However, I see it as a good thing to work an intern very closely with an engineer. It helps understanding with the process of communicating with other branches in the company besides the engineering department.

    Pros

    Last conversation I had with my supervisor, Martee said "Production is more important than safety." This reflected the attitude of the plant management at plant 110. Also, they use "bullies" to manage their employees and co-workers. I notified HR of workplace violence incident and they sat on the information without doing a proper investigation. Trinity policy was, and still is, zero tolerance for workplace violence yet Lee is still working there. Also, all of the witnesses I named to the incident have been fired or reassigned to other positions. Does that sound like somewhere you would want to work? Compensatory benefits are great. Company values safety first, yet plant 110 had live electrical cords laying across the concrete in puddles of water. You also had the same supervisor who denied an employee legitimate access to the restroom. The supervisor was a black male, employee was a white male, and there was at least one black male employee who was waiting in line in the restroom and was not denied access by that same supervisor. None of this information was addressed in the final meeting. I have more but that is enoughfor now.

    Cons

    HR is unsatisfactory, they are discriminatory in their actions.

    Advice to Management

    Again, benefits and compensation are great. However, your supervisors and management do not know how to talk to people as people. If you are going to send your employees to sensitivity training, then follow up with enforcing your expectations.

    Pros

    Pell city plant sucks, overworked and underpaid. Benefits are non existing. Did I mention LEAN? Get a dry erase board! Lol

    Cons

    The job! Get prepared to get stabbed in the back. Management is to aggressive, can't keep good employees. High turnover rate....

    Advice to Management

    Apply your core values, and do more than just listen to your hourly employees....

    Pros

    Trinity Industries offers employees a premier experience including financial stability, career advancement and personal growth in addition to competitive compensation.

    Cons

    The company's current growth trend has presented some challenges in from a technology & systems perspective; however, we are making advancements daily.

    Advice to Management

    I would consider delegating authority a bit more to balance work load and increase the speed to resolution.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay for someone WANTING to work. Management does care. Opportunity for advancement if you actually come to work everyday and do your job

    Cons

    Bad attitudes of hourly workforce. This runs off new hires which leads to very high turn over. Which feeds bad attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    Suck it up and reprimand bad behavior. Work on changing culture and making grown ups behave like grown ups.

    Pros

    well the benefits are pretty good
    the life insurance is instant
    the work is good if you like to work

    Cons

    long hours
    extreme heat
    management that doesn't care about its employees
    a maintainable crew that won't fix equipment like cranes
    a company that after they have been told that the crane has no brakes the supervisor, the lead men,and safety men have looked at it and each one of them said "run it anyways" even the plant manager said" run it " the thing has no brakes it takes thirty feet to stop, and then they fire you when an accident happens. fix the equipment when it brakes and accidents won't happen

    Advice to Management

    fix equipment when it brakes not when an accident happens
