    I worked at Trinity Industries (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very competitive rates and lots of respect if you are good at your work.

    Cons

    Think old money and old traditional values. If you can understand and fall in line with that perspective no cons.

    I worked at Trinity Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really good Benefits, medical is great with an HRA, dental and vision are ok, pretty standard. Good vacation time increasing yearly. Sick time only for salaried positions.

    Cons

    Constant blindsides, lack of good management and lacking pay increases. The pace and environment seems to only continue to get worse with time. HE changes the rules constantly to their needs

    Advice to Management

    Needs to provide a more stable environment, too many ups and downs, hard to plan or ever feel stable. When management doesn't care why should you?

    Pros

    They give you popcorn on Thursday.

    Cons

    The most mismanaged place I have ever worked in my life. My boss was busted and convicted of stealing at TPI and was a total liar. They play games with their employees and if they dont like you they will find a way to get rid of you. Air guilty is horrible very hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Keep looking.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your selves and start over.
