    Pros

    as a whole the company is okay to work for

    the company is very bias and racially split. the big guys in dallas need to do a surprise visit on the plants in longview and they would be appaled.

    Advice to Management

    dont always let them know your coming just show up. how do u let a guy walk out on a drug test and hire him back.

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

    Pros

    Really good benefits, decent pay!

    Cons

    Old school mentality, allergic to change, HR changes the rules based on who you are, it's hard to advance. No one really appreciates or acknowledges a job well done. If you don't kiss butt, you have no chance at advancement. Lay offs happen every couple of years.... Large ones not a few people here and there.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the good people and advance their pay, promote them. Warn people about lay offs with more notice or how they'll have to take a lesser job.

    Co workers are nice people
    Pay is decent

    Cons

    No room for advancement

    It shouldn't be hard to figure out why all the employees are looking for other jobs. Just look to management.

    Pros

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

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