    I have been working at tenneco automotive full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been treated very fairly. Great overall company to work for. I am very happy to be with the company

    Cons

    When they tell you to be relocatable, they mean it. Literally anywhere in the country. If you have a family they will try to work with you though

    Advice to Management

    Continue to train. That is a big part of the industry. Train on electronics and in the field to make sure everyone is staying current.

    I have been working at tenneco automotive full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for the area. That's pretty much the ONLY selling point for this job.

    Cons

    EXTREME amounts of mandatory overtime. No family time. No social life. Vacation requests are regularly denied, so should you need a day off you risk reprimand. Unsafe working conditions. Hostile and deplorable working conditions. Little to no chance for advancements unless you "know a guy". Moral is non existent. The few good managers get neutered by their bosses and left little more than middle men/women with no real authority. Floor workers concerns are virtually ignored or dismissed outright. Should you make a complaint or voice any negative thoughts you're met with, "well you can always quit".

    Advice to Management

    Try putting yourselves in your workers position. Consider how you'd feel working several months straight with only one or no days off per week. Pay attention to the floor workers since we're out here doing the job everyday. Remember we are people. We have families too. Tenneco is not the be all and end all of existence.

    I worked at tenneco automotive full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is about the only thing that can be put in the pro column. I guess you could say vacation time also.

    Cons

    Management is horrible!
    HR doesn't do the job that they are supposed to do, especially if you confide in them with an ethics issue and the situation gets worse.
    All the supervision at this plant are disrespectful, deceiving and treat like a slave.

     disrespectful

    Advice to Management

    I don't understand why you would hire such HR managers, Plant Managers and Supervisors to run this plant. It shouldn't take long to figure out what the problem is when your turn over rate there is the worst I have ever seen in my 25 years of working in the Fabrication and welding industry. I thought it was going to be the career job that I was going to retire from.. instead I was pushed out the door.
