    I worked at Trinity Industries full-time

    Pros

    They offer work uniforms. Pretty much the only positive.

    Cons

    The Coatings at Plant 19 is all ran on a buddy system and the supervisors will bully/harass you until you either quit or move to a different shift. Don’t bother with HR because it’s a complete waste of time. Worst place I have ever worked in my life. If you have no self dignity or care for your fellow worker then this is the perfect place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Plant 19 will continue to decline unless there is a change in Management and that goes all the way to the top. It is a domino effect when your Plant Manager continuously gripes out his supervisors which leads to them griping out their employees.

    You shouldn’t have to ask your employees why they leave a job. A good boss will always know.

    How about going by the moto you have time to talk you have time to work? Grow a pair and get rid of the people who start trouble and don’t work. Really take a walk through the Coatings and see what’s really going on.

    And for goodness sakes why do you make Maintenance wear FRC and push them to the max? Seriously?!?!? Talk about heat stroke / heat exhaustion. They are smart enough to put the proper gear on when they are working with flash arch. Try wearing FRC all day long in 95+ when there own supervisors don’t wear them. Safety is a never taken as serious as it should be at Trinity.

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

    Pros

    Salary was above average
    Good Benefits

    Cons

    No body has a clue what their doing.
    Big money spent on a ticketing system, that doesn't perform.
    IT departments push issues back to 1st level. Nobody wants to take ownership.

    Advice to Management

    Replace IT management with new creative staff and not with crownies from TI.
