    I have been working at Union Tank Car full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to gain experience in central Louisiana for salaried or hourly employees.

    Cons

    Aged facility, poor communication across the board, no safety culture, the union breeds and encourages poor performance and laziness. Be prepared for a constant state of emergency due to production lags.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing local management this will not fix the problem 9 plant managers in 12 years should be a good indicator that your problem in in Chicago not Ville Platte

    I worked at Union Tank Car full-time

    Pros

    The only pros to this place were the benefits.

    Cons

    Production and numbers are #1. They lie and cheat customers to get ahead.
    They treat employees super unfairly then wonder why they can't retain a decent group.

    Advice to Management

    Try changing things to go with the times. The company from the top down is ran like it was 40 years ago and they refuse to accept change.

    Pros

    Direct supervisors and managers are great people to work for. Follow QC Inspectors are nice and helpful. Workers on the floor (welders, support, etc.) are nice and hard working

    Cons

    Upper management and HR work hand in hand, like a good old boy network. In my opinion, the HR department holds to much of the power.
