      Pros

      They still pay every week.

      Cons

      Less people, more stress, place sounds like it's empty because it almost is. The office personnel are cheerful, but the floor people are drained of every last bit of excitement of having a job. Safety issues coordinate with production to keep safety costs down, "two lives a car" is the word.

      Trinity is great on paper but not in person

      Pros

      6% 401k matching fully vested after 2 years New Maternal and Paternal leave policy, dads or adopting parents get 2 weeks and moms get 12 weeks (I think) fully paid. Trinity pays really well and if oil and gas are going good employees get good bonuses. Vacation policy starting at 14 days for new employees. New office building with all new appliances, desks, and conference rooms.

      Cons

      Poor work life balance. Layoffs about ever 2 years. 2 large rounds of layoffs in 2020 Lacking diversity in many departments, the CEO touts diversity of thought over actual diverse people. High rate of burnout in younger employees. On Covid-19 there is a weird push to get back in the office, even though employees met metrics while all working from home. The CEO said she would like to see everyone 100% in the office by the end of January despite rising rates of infection in Dallas County. Employees are openly rude to one another. I was told by upper management one of the reasons for little diversity was 'Women don't want to work in rail' our CEO is a woman and the CEO of a major railroad is a woman.

      Pros

      Lots of hours when there is lots of work. We worked 72-84 hours for months at a time.

      Cons

      Barely enough hours to live check to check when work is slow. Slow season we worked 32hrs a week. But when it’s busy you will work 7 days a week for months at a time with no days off. And if you take a day off you will be reprimanded even though you haven’t had a day off in a couple months. They couldn’t care less about employees. No family time whatsoever when it’s busy.
