Pros: lunch break, you always had time to rest forthe second half of your day
It's a great company to work for, good pay, and awesome benefit packages. The team I worked with worked very well with each other. The worst thing about working here was the supervisor and material manager, you never had their back or support and you felt that going to work everyday.

A typical day at work at Trinity Rail is instantly as soon as you walk in the door your at work. People were telling me what they needed and I did a walk through the shop and wrote down what cars we had for the day and made sure the parts that were needed were tracked down and brought to the desired places they needed to go.

Good luck .. lol still collecting unemployment from them. Be ready for politics and high school all over again. Best part of the day… I don't think there was one , someone hounding you like a dog looking over your shoulder the whole time , yea. Stuck it out for a year then got laid off because when they said jump, I didn't respond how high. They did – more... not care that I have a 9 month old , all they care about is your submission to someone who has no business supervising there own kid much less a work production line. Don't expect a day off, they have no idea what that is. 7 days a week 10 to 12 hours a day is nice but not when that is your life trust me or don't…. – less
