    I have been working at Union Tank Car full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A steady and stable income if you're looking to raise a family with. Great health health insurance 35,00-55,000. Paid weekly

    Cons

    No retirement worth anything. You are for sure a number not a person. Heads of plants smile to face but stab you. You are either a yes man and move up to white hat or you are a piece of crap to them. Company has changed alot in lat 10 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Educate your employees on best retirement plans. Treat them good they will be productive for you. Show them appreciation

    I have been working at Union Tank Car full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Medical benefits, life insurance option, travel time, company vehicle, industry networking opportunity

    Cons

    bosses that are little to no help. IE : they rarely are around and having them answer a call for help/input is erratic at best . management/supervisors that play the blame game and threaten there employees instead of encouraging them and assisting the site to make profit goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do random visits where no one IE regional managers/site supervisors have a clue about said visit so as not to have time to hide things and put on a "good face" other wise things just go back to "normal" after the visit

    Pros

    great company. Very fair. Need to be strong willed and take charge of your own career, but given that, very good place in which to work

    Cons

    a lot of 'old school' thinking here. It's been down this way for so long....however, management is open to hearing new ideas
