Your just a number
Welder (Former Employee) –  Marshall, MIOctober 18, 2018
I worked there 5.5 years and pointed out. They're attendance policy is 6.5 points max and is termination...You are always replaceable and you will not grow in the company unless your a brown noser.
Pros
Company lunch
Cons
Your just a number and are replaceable

General Operator (Current Employee) –  Marshall, MIOctober 14, 2018
This job is extremely stressful and is hard labor, especially as you get older. It's nice pay and can make a difference at home as an additional income. But expect to work for it.

Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Grass Lake, MIOctober 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.

Good pay. No life.
Maintenance E/M (Current Employee) –  Ligonier, INOctober 9, 2018
They will work you to death. Don’t care if you have a life other than Tenneco. They pretend to care about safety, bit when theres a conflict between safety or production, production wins hands down.
Pros
Good paychecks
Cons
7 days a week. No home life

Worked forklift on the dock

The job was fast paced and occurred between separate buildings. The job was pleasant. Weather was a factor as well as lower pay for the cost of living in my area.

Tenneco allowed time management and schedules to accomplish the task at hand.
Director Operations & Quality Systems (Former Employee) –  Houston, TexasSeptember 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.
Pros
Working in different countries with common objectives
Cons
travel frequency

A strong company focused on safety and culture
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Litchfield, MISeptember 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.
Pros
Great pay/benefits
Cons
Very short breaks versus hours worked.

Not a good time to consider Tenneco
Corporate position (Current Employee) –  Monroe, MIAugust 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.
Pros
Depends on your manager as there can be flexible schedules with certain managers not all
Cons
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, MIAugust 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.
Pros
pay and benefits
Cons
everything else
