Supervisor (Current Employee) – Grass Lake, MI – October 13, 2018
Good place to work. Benefits are average. Could be managed better. Don't care about making money for the company or not. They do not communicate within company very well. Decent pay for a decent days work.
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Hartwell, GA – October 11, 2018
Fast paced with lots of goals and objectives.Learned if you were not in the click you better start looking for another opportunity.There was a lot of turn over in production workforce and quality to customer was poor.The hardest part of the job was getting funds to properly keep the plant operating smoothly.working with honest hard working employees.
Tenneco allowed time management and schedules to accomplish the task at hand.
Director Operations & Quality Systems (Former Employee) – Houston, Texas – September 25, 2018
A typical work day included traveling to many countries and understanding their culture. I learned how to accomplish task within many different cultures. The hardest part of the job was scheduling travel and accomplishing task at hand. The most enjoyable was working with people in various cultures an defining the critical processes.
Working in different countries with common objectives
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Litchfield, MI – September 10, 2018
Long days start out with meetings to keep everyone together on the same page always. There are many responsibilities but you are given the opportunity to learn and grow rapidly. There is an ability to advance further given the right amount of dedication. The hardest part would be the long hours and involuntary overtime. The most enjoyable part would be the pay compensation and the benefits.

Contract employees not knowing when their contract is up.
Corporate position (Current Employee) – Monroe, MI – August 29, 2018
There are many unknowns with Tenneco as the business is changing and you could get hired only to have to work in another city too far away for your commute. Your boss can change, even the company you work for, advice is to wait and see - maybe 2020. The new management expects more for less and this company is driven by shareholders perceptions...as are many traded companies. However, the culture is changing and many are looking for new opportunities elsewhere after many years with Tenneco - this speaks volumes. If you do still decide to pursue a Tenneco opportunity, just know that it is important to pretend like the bonus doesn't exist as if you get one it will be a disappointment.
Depends on your manager as there can be flexible schedules with certain managers not all
No clear direction, changing business entirely, minimal training, no opportunities for advancement anymore, low to no bonus
if you like working off shifts its not bad if u need 1st think again
Production Team Leader (Former Employee) – Litchfield, MI – August 28, 2018
no systems in place to make work life more simple. very poor communication. very easy jobs but no ability to be on shift needed takes 6 years or so to get from an off shift to 1st shift. they mandate for overtime and lowest senority gets over worked instead of leveling it out amongst employees.
