Company is awful, the office overloads the real workers while sitting in air conditioning and brand new furniture while others use broke equipment and horrible working environments.

The guys u work with make the day go by
Class A Welder (Former Employee), Hugo,OkJuly 1, 2014
Pros: working close to home
Cons: everything else
Hard dirty work,low pay,long hours. if this sounds like fun you found the right employer. Trinity bought the company i previously worked for, made promises about safety better equipment, and more pay. So far safety is the only thing that got better but that only lasted until production started to slow down. then we where back in cars grinding 10-12hour – more... days without a hole watch. pay is at the low end for the entire country for welders! I've never seen skilled craftsman treated this way. I'm hitting the road asap. might as well when u never see ur family. – less

fun and pleasent working place
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Magnolia, TXMay 20, 2014
Overall I had a great time at Trinity industries, the environment was pleasant and co-workers were the best Ive had, made many close friends at Trinity. The work was intense and fast paced like any other big manufacturer. But that helped build time managing skills which has been of great importance through my career.

below average pay, good benefits
Set-up Operator (Former Employee), Girard, OHMay 13, 2014
Pros: benefit package
Cons: forced overtime and disrespective behaviors to employee by the management
The overall view I offer to the behaviors and conduct of the management team within this company, would rate a 3, on a scale from 1-10. Foreman on the floor often disrespect the hourly employee, and verbally abusive to the employee.

Even, more so I would not offer anyone recommedation to a person seeking employment, to apply with this company.

Crew (Former Employee), Houston, TXApril 23, 2014
Pros: will help you stay healthy and feat
Cons: a lot of lifting all day. (very hard on your back)
A typical day is hard working, fun and very fast. I lurnd a lot about friend ships and team work at this job. Management was nice and cared about everyone and how they are doing through out the day. Co-workers are cool, hard working and will always be there for you. The hardest part of the job is around the end of the day because you are so tierd from – more... unloading trucks all night.The enjoyable part of the day getting to work out all day and im to tierd to really do anything after work. – less

Machine Operator (Former Employee), Saginaw, TXFebruary 19, 2014
Productive workflow. Learned how to operate various machines. Management trains worker well. Co-workers are easy to get along with. Hardest part of drive was the commute. Most enjoyable part was being able to operate machinery with confidence.

A road block in you career path
Human Resources (Former Employee), Lawrenceville, PAFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: long hours as salary exempt, endless responsibility, executives willing to throw you under the bus at a moments notice to save face
Cons: executives, management, corporate, lack of tools to function, about 20 years behind the times
A typical day at work would involve at least a 9 hour day, often 10.

I learned that no one should work for this company unless your desperate.

Management was always willing to help - themselves. This often included blaming you for their mistakes and shortcomings, and throwing you under the bus.

I also learned that family-in-laws, IE. a VP and a manager – more... who reports to him - is an unethical combination.

There are a few good people that work there, and they continue to work there because they keep their heads down and just do what they are told, which often involves beating their hourly workers into submission.

The hardest part of the job ... not quitting every day.

The most enjoyable part of the job .. the few people there that made it a fun place to work.

Its hard to say if the corruption extends beyond the VP. I would propose an experiment. Time for a new VP, and see how the company changes. – less

Decent Job, Safe and decent pay
Manager/Driver (Former Employee), Big Spring, TXDecember 11, 2013
Pros: decent pay and hours. stayed busy
Cons: some back stabbers and favoritism
I like working here, i was laid off due to lack of work in my area but it didnt bother me. Every one was friendly and safe. We worked as a team to get the job done.. there were back stabbers sure but just do your job and avoid things that would get you in trouble and you will make a decent check. Working with friends is what i enjoyed the most. Hardest – more... part was working with enemies. – less
