    I have been working at Union Tank Car full-time

    Pros

    UTLX is a growing company but has slow periods. The work keeps you busy and the people are helpful and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    There was a period of layoffs a few years ago. This has made the production staff paranoid. It is not know when the market will fluctuate but informing the floor would help morale.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep people involved and share information that could help improve morale.

    I have been working at Union Tank Car full-time (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 Management

    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 (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 Management

    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

    I have been working at Union Tank Car full-time

    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


  11. Ok. It pays the bills but nothing to get excited about.
