    I have been working at Trident Building Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great family owned business to work at! Fair pay and always available overtime. The work may be hard and hot at times but working at a place where hard work is rewarded it rare to find these days. Just a few months a go a hard working shop employee got moved up to an office position. So its great to see that they promote within.

    Cons

    Hard work. Hot days in the shop

    Advice to Management

    Spend more money on drafting help. Drawings have constant issues. Also an incentive program would get more employees max effort

  3. "Quality Control"

    I worked at Trident Building Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice ponds outside to look at during lunch break......

    Cons

    Office door near the fabrication has the door puller broken for years so i had to close it manually after every employee visit like 50 times a day. Bathroom is always lock, must ask for the key everyday. Training was incomplete. Drawing often unclear or missing information. Temperature in the quality control/assurance office was impossible to adjust and was preset at 65 degrees.

    Advice to Management

    Your whole fabrication production procedure system got to be reviewed/improved and fix all safety issues for workers as well as your supervisors policies to be clarified / improved and create a Team leader in every department, not just a senior resource person.

    Your shop area should have several fan running. It's way too humid due to the proximity of the
    ponds during the hot summer to have only the garage doors open for ventilation. Also the front office is kept way too cold at 70 degrees and you would save ton of money adjust it
    at 79 degrees instead and having the HVAC being re-zoned.

    I worked at Trident Building Systems (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a family owned business. The owners work very hard and treat their employees fairly. They are innovative and looking to advance.

    Cons

    At times, the owner can be a challenge to deal with. He is, however, aware of his shortcomings and strives to improve. He has many excellent qualities as well.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Be patient. Appreciate the hard work they are doing for you. Keep an open mind.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the physical labor and the opportunity to learn a trade. They provided plenty of chances to accumulate over time work.

    Cons

    Management was pompous. Foremen were often grumpy and generally not enjoyable to be around. Safety considerations were sometimes a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Become more personable. Lead by example, not by verbal abuse and/or threats. Incorporate workers in a more thorough manner, please.

    Pros

    The office atmosphere is approximately 72 degrees year-long, parking lot is kept very clean, hand dispensers provided at time clocks.

    Cons

    Performance reviews are non-existent. The costs of the soda pop at the breakroom was increased from fifty cents to seventy fice cents.

    Advice to Management

    Take more pride in your employees, a thank you, or a sincere smile would be welcomed. Although the economic outlook maybe dim is no reason to treat employees like children
