Warning!!!! Turn around and go the other way!!!!! Tulsa, Oklahoma

Material Control (Current Employee)
Tulsa, OK

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

ProsGood 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.

ConsWorking 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 Senior ManagementGet new management and pull your head out of your butt

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Keep looking.

Engineering (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Trinity Industries for more than 3 years

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

ConsOld 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 Senior ManagementFlat 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A great place to work for strong individuals.

Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee)
Oklahoma City, OK

I worked at Trinity Industries full-time for more than a year

ProsDecent pay and lots of overtime. Convenient location.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementThere 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Lack of consistent management policies and enforcement

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Trinity Industries full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSteady work and steady pay

ConsUnprofessional management showing favoritism and not inforceing company policy.
Supervisor sits in office all day texting while hi lo driver does his work.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe Lima Ohio Trinity guardrail plant is the most unprofessional place Ive ever seen.The management is inconsistent at inforceing company policy and only reprimands certain workers.They allow racial and profane remarks.One supervisor there gives financial support to the hi lo driver to do his job on first shift.They need to be investigated! I have contacted Dallac and they do not answer my emails.Please monitor their behavior there as even though new policies are now being put into effect they may only enforce it with certain workers.There is a lot of favoritism there.Please help!!!!!!!
