    Decent pay, relaxed work environment, accommodating management.

    Dirty, smokey, and dated equipment. Lack of direct supervision, unpredictable scheduling. Hours can be brutal.

    I have been working at Trinity Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They give 2 days a year off to non-smokers. Makes up for all the breaks the smokers take. You do have to certify that you are a non smoker.

    Cons

    Have an old attitude towards benefits. They need to up their vacation and and treat all office workers the same on time off for illness. Exempt gets weeks off per year, non-exempt gets 5 days a year. Once you use it, they start taking your vacation.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep the younger generation from jumping ship, you need to upgrade your benefits.

    I worked at Trinity Industries (More than a year)

    Pros

    compensation and the quarterly bonus program. Interesting work and the supervision is in general very understanding of some of the harsh work that needs to be completed.

    Cons

    You must work there a year before you are allowed paid time off. This makes it difficult to want to take time away from work for family.

    Pros

    Just about everyone has good intentions. The company is willing to invest in you. There are many projects to work on and increase technical knowledge.

    Cons

    Follow through and organization between departments is lacking. Upper management spends frivolously on projects that are not bought into by the operator while equipment degrades and does not receive proper investment.

    Advice to Management

    Improve cross department communication and organization.

    Pros

    Team atmosphere! Great place to work for depending on the department you work for.

    Cons

    They do not promote or develop talent within. Prefer millenials and foster monthly developmental lunches for them. Out with the old and in with the new.

    Advice to Management

    Watch your leaders in management? If everyone is leaving its probably time to remove the person at the helm? Your the only company that does not do exit interviews which would shed light on whats really going on within your company.
