    Trojan Battery Company is truly a different type of company to be employed.

    Balancer (Former Employee) Lithonia, GA

    ProsThe orientation let one knows that this company is different, even if one does their background check on this company you will still be surprised by its operation. The company definitely stay within regulation of federal and state laws concerning a lead environment.

    ConsThe work is extremely hot and difficult at times. Every employee has to wear a respirator while on the floor and it can be uncomfortable with the heat inside the plant. Be prepared to take a shower before leaving the plant because it is part of the federal regulation about working in a lead plant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWith everyone working around and acid fumes, the employees should take physical yearly and this should be free of charge. This ensure that at least every employee health is looked at.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good Company overall Horrible HR Team

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Santa Fe Springs, Los Angeles, CA

    ProsGood pay, good benefits, chance to grow, paid training if needed. They have a great environment and safety program and team.

    ConsOverall the company is great place to be. The downfall is their HR dept. They have a revolving door in that dept. They either run out or let go of the good professional HR members and keep the ones that should not be given the title of HR. They are always behind closed doors and do not give you the time or day to help you and they have about 6 hr members for 200 employees.. makes no sense.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management really needs to look at their HR team. On the floor we feel we don't have anyone we can go to. They have let go or run off the good HR members that would listen and help us out. Just early this year they had someone great and she left. We all know they ran her off and she was really the only one that had the open door with all of us on the floor. the current HR team has one person in a relationship with another manager which makes if difficult for us to go to her when we have issues with him. And then you have them always behind closed doors and when you do go to them they seem upset. We cant call the 800 number because it just goes to HR.

    Company needs to change culture.

    Production Supervisor (Current Employee) Lithonia, GA

    ProsHardworking operators and supervisors, great place to perfect management skills due to multiple production personnel, and operational issues, Great benefits and 401 K plan, floor level operators have great knowledge of operations.

    ConsPoor management, cultural disconnection between upper management and lower management, more emphasis on passing blame than solving issues, poor employee rating system, obsolete training program, poor cleanliness, poor safety program, no formal complaint process, not open to new ideas unless you are part of the in crowd or clique, lack of value for hard work, excessive overtime with no compensation for salary workers (at times 60 plus hrs per week), threat based management environment, no career advancement, lack of value for higher education (prefers underdeveloped employees inorder to maintain control in a threat based environment).

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to listen more and re-evaluate your corporate structure. For example, you have several production supervisors that posses advanced knowledge of company operations and processes. In addition, to having Master's and Bachelor's degrees with 5 to 15 years of company experience. Many of these supervisors are still waiting for the opportunity to advance, having to work for new managers that have less than half of the qualifications and no company experience. If given the chance, some of these individuals may prove to be better leaders while efficiently solving many of the company's operational issues.
