    I have been working at Tenneco full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and good pay. A good place to learn and build your skills. A great place for self building opportunities.

    Cons

    Management needs to listen to long term employees and treat people the same across the board. lots of double standards. Need Management to be more on the floor and make a difference than stay in the office chit-chating about nonsense issues.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of opportunities to make a real difference if management takes issues more seriously. Need to listen to your employees rather than your managers.

    Supply Chain Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tenneco.

    Interview

    I applied on line and a recruiter contacted me about 3 months later via phone and email. She asked me to provide her possible times that could work for us to talk (as her schedule was wide open) which I did. She then sent an email invite with times different then what I confirmed. I followed up with her and explained that I wasn't available at those times, so she offered me up two more times that didn't work and was very short with me. I took these as clues that the reviews on here were probably correct about the culture. I declined the times and wished her the best with her search. She then sends me a note asking me to explain why I missed our phone screen? Any time a company has someone rude and inconsiderate in HR reaching out to candidates...that should be a major red flag to run! Can you imagine how they'll treat you when you are an employee?
