    Decent pay, relaxed work environment, accommodating management.

    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

    Good pay. Bonus and vacation pay. Good overall team to work with. Great team leaders and good safety team. I'd advise anyone looking for great pay and a good team to work with

    Cons

    Well if you are a family person it may not be a good fit for you due to the fact that trinity works alot of hours. Ranging from 60 to 76 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Not really advice but more like a complaint. Keep up the good job on how you treat your employees and business will continue to strive.

    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.
