    I have been working at Trinity Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been here for 2 yrs and the supervisors have very little people skills and only care for production not employees. There is no union so yes there's no dues or fees but that also means that you have nobody to intervene in an argument with management. I've seen just recently where management suspended someone for 3 days without going by their written protocol because they didn't like the person and nothing was done to the management.

    Cons

    This company boasts that you can climb the ladder quickly but in reality it's extremely hard to get a promotion and the pay scale is not competitive with local or even national standards. we are classified as welders but in reality we are fitter welders and that's the reason they say our pay is in line with national standards. Everything we do is fitter welder material and I'm not even getting paid $14 an hr yet after 2 yrs and the company wonders why they have a high turnover rate......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    train your supervisors to care for employees. this company doesn't pay by production so you should act like it

    Benefits nice. Growing company with lots of opportunities for people at all levels. Looking for ways to innovate and become even more profitable.

    Cons

    A place where those with history don't have time or room for newcomers even though they hired them. Struggling a bit with rapid growth.

    I have been working at Trinity Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and benifits. Wonderful job and great company. I love the work and pay

    Cons

    Supervisors have access to all your info including being able to change your clock in and out times. They erased days of work and charged me absences for days i worked. I complained to hr and was told i couldnt do anything. Only workers are ever drug tested. .Never upper management. Despite complaints from many about open use of drugs. Dont file a complaint about money shorted from your check because you will be subject to harassment and have your hours cut. You only get promotions if you are friends with supervisor. Very corrupt and illegal things go on at plant 19 and you cant do anything about it cause its the supervisors doing it and no one cares.i love my job but supervisors make it impossible to stay. They fired several people for complaint against the management since i started.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mandatory drug testing for supervisors. Dont let supervisors have access to personal files and time cards. Plant 19

    Pros

    Good money and good people to work with accept the management. You will always have work to do because everyone like to do the job twice.

    Cons

    Working 7 days a week 12 hour shifts. If you have no life and no family this is for you. They will lie. Example: welder gets hired to be a welder. He is down at the burn table using a torch cutting scrap. You can not trust this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management and pull your head out of your butt

    Responded right away when I applied to the job

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Trinity Industries for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get some free donuts now and then and if you consider that your incentive, you will.be happy.

    Cons

    Old systems and even older management style. Legacy hires dump their own work on new people and way too many layers to get funds approved. Yes, they make money because they have a large market share of some.sectors but the competition is coming on. Don't expect bonuses, just other people's work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flat line reporting structures and stop hiring someone based on what school they attended. Hire people that don't job hop every two years. That is not a sign of diversity or experience, that is someone no one else wanted.
