Productive place, great opportunity to advance in career.
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Paragould, ARAugust 3, 2017
The work is good, management needs a bit of improving and their point system is uncontrollable. For example, if you have a family crisis they point you for it and you have to wait 90 working days for it to fall off even with a doctor's note.
Pros
Quick advancement
Cons
HR looks at everything Black/White

Robotic Weld Technician (Current Employee) –  Lansing, MIJuly 29, 2017
Great place to work with plenty of opportunities to advance. I was able to get in on the ground floor of a new launch which created a great learning experience for me as well as an introduction to a new type of robot.

MIG Welder/Fabricator and Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Hartwell, GAJuly 22, 2017
Absolutely God Awful! There are not enough bad words to describe this He** Hole. Who ever heard of a company actually trying to fire employees? After a year of abuse I walked out after lunch. People are humans not slaves. Period.
Pros
Nothing

Can be a hard and trying place to work.
Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Paragould, ARJuly 21, 2017
Very hard work, but the pay is good. Not very much time off at all, year round. 7 days a week, sometimes 50 to 70 hour work weeks. VERY HOT in summer, the fall and winter aren't too bad. I recommend working at the plant over working at the DC though, DC has all the hours and no lives, no time for a life, its really quite sad.

Production Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Hartwell, GAJuly 19, 2017
Structured, focused on customer satisfaction. Tenneco is a mainstay in the community but is known for layoffs and visits from OSHA. Is focused on safety as well as customer satisfaction.
Pros
Pay is great for the area
Cons
Long hours and hot inside the plant during the summer.

COORDINATOR (Former Employee) –  Paragould, ARJuly 10, 2017
The department I worked in pulled a lot of overtime. It was good money, but sometimes you need a balance. The low rating was due to the fact I was injured on the job due to faulty machinery that had been written up for safety violations several times. I endured 4 surgeries now and got released because I wasn't physically able to do the job. Now I'm trying to find work with my limitations.
Pros
Money
Cons
48-80 hours a week.

poor management
General Operator (Current Employee) –  Marshall, MIJuly 7, 2017
very poor management. no one ever knows whats going on. way to many layoffs and when your not getting a layoff your working a lot of over time. they care very little to none about you. and to advance there is also very hard unless your a man because of the new team leader positions that you have to do set up as well.
Pros
its a pay check
Cons
very hot conditions, poor management, layoffs all the time.

Tool Maker/Tool and Die (Former Employee) –  Litchfield, MIJuly 7, 2017
Tenneco still is one of the best places to work. Every place has politics but lack any subsidies to offset it. Tenneco pays and compensates very well and is there for your best interests as well as the company.
Pros
Pay and compensation
Cons
Lots of overtime

Not the best
General Operator (Former Employee) –  Marshall, MIJuly 6, 2017
They are not consistent with their quality requirements. Sometimes they'll call a part bad, and fix/adjust the machine...while other times they'll call it good, because they need the part.

Management doesn't seem to care. If you're friends with the TL or Supervisor it's probably ok, but if you don't suck up to them and try to be their friend, it takes a long time to get their attention for help or questions or supplies/parts.
Pros
decent pay to start when hired in directly
Cons
poor quality, safety, management
