Good pay & benefits, but culture and attitude lacking
MIG welder, Operational Excellence (Former Employee) – Clarksville, TN – May 15, 2016
Trane is a production facility that does not require much skill in most jobs. The pay and benefits are good, but the culture of this company is one in need of overhaul. The employees are constantly in contention with management. Employees feel management does not care about the line workers or their opinion and this causes a lot of tension at work. The only way to move up in the company is through union seniority. Those that worked up into supervisory positions often did not last the year before they were dismissed. Management and supervisor turnover was extremely high. Co-workers were pleasant, but were always trying to get out of doing work. The hardest part of the job was enjoying being at work, the atmosphere was one of low morale and complaining. I did enjoy my job welding and working with the line employees in making the jobs more efficient and productive, although changes were often met with doubt and questionable motive as to why the changes were being made. Overall, the employees really felt over worked and un-cared for by management.
management didn't listen, feelings of disrespect and not of worth
