    I have been working at Trinity Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are many good people who work here.

    Cons

    The hourly schedule is based upon the whimsical roller coaster of the management, there is retribution for questioning, HR and safety are tools of production to keep hourly people in line, and one must obey their latest direct orders.

  7. "Hired as a welder, but made to be a laborer"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Welder/Fitter II 

    I worked at Trinity Industries full-time

    Pros

    Starting wage is nicer than most similar factory work

    Cons

    They pay you just enough to keep you from searching elsewhere. Have to push hard to move into different areas within company.

    I have been working at Trinity Industries full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There's better pay than average factory jobs.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they are doing. There is nothing but favoritism and backstabbing in the workplace. Constantly keep the employees in the dark on anything going on (i.e. multiple people have been sent home to be tested for covid and nothing has been mentioned to their coworkers that could have been exposed) They say there is a "no retaliation" policy if something is brought up, but that is false. If you make certain members (note, this is not everyone) of upper management angry you can bet that you will either have a target on your back for any little thing to get written up or they will make your job so miserable that you will quit because "then you're not a problem." Lied to employees about layoffs happening. Stated that there weren't going to be any but less than two months later and a LARGE part of the employees have been laid off.
