Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Seward, NEAugust 10, 2018
If your looking to work here just know two things before you start. The first is that you will work seven days a week for a long time upwards to a year or at least six months. Second communication is nonexistent whether it's trying, to find a supervisor or team lead you will not be able to preform your job duties unless you talk to them first.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
short brakes and long hours

Quick paced, loud, a little dirty, friendly people
General Operator (Current Employee) –  Litchfield, MIAugust 9, 2018
a good place to work if you're looking for a lot of hours, but it's loud and they require that you wear ppe (sleeves, earplugs, safety glasses etc), benefits are ok, friendly people, but they don't treat their employees very well. they don't stick to the handbook, they do things however they want and get away with it.
Pros
good pay
Cons
lots of overtime, don't care about employees

Productive place
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Ligonier, INAugust 9, 2018
Good place to make money but not a place you can also make time for yourself or family. They lose people like they bring them in and that it because of all the overtime and the training isn’t done very well. Most management doesn’t know how to talk to their people.
Pros
Very good benefits and great if you want to make good money!
Cons
They forget people actually have lives other than work. 12 hour days seven days a week.... too much.

Worst place to work, keep on driving by
Auditor/Quality Tech (Former Employee) –  Smithville, TNAugust 5, 2018
If you like working 12 hour days 7 days a week this is the place for you. Otherwise, just stay away. They have no value in family live. There are some who have worked 7-8 months with no time off. They expect you to live there. Supervisors are some of the worst I have ever worked for, some of them you wonder how they are even supervisors.
Pros
None
Cons
Short breaks, low pay, no family life, rude boss

Tenneco is an alright place to work. They do not like to hire/promote from within. All of its directors and upper level staff are all brought in from Johnson Controls.

Great place for employment
Line maintaince (Current Employee) –  Paragould, ARJuly 30, 2018
The only problem with tenneco is bad management above the supervisors. They do not care for the employee, they only care about advancing themselves and making themselves look good.

Good people, okay work
Engineering Co-op (Current Employee) –  Grass Lake, MIJuly 23, 2018
All the people I interacted with on a daily basis were great. The atmosphere was a "let's be happy and try to get through the day together." Work is always fast-paced and stressful, but that's the automotive industry for you.

Management has taken a downturn
Director, Enterprise Data Management (Former Employee) –  Lake Forest, ILJuly 17, 2018
Previous execs built a deep culture of trust - you had a clear understanding of the corporate objectives, the value of your contributions & knew you had unwavering support. With the transition to new c-suite execs, the culture has become top heavy and dysfunctional.- as shown in the profitability & stock price.

Materials Handler (Former Employee) –  Smithville, TNJuly 10, 2018
Tenneco was all in all a good place to work. It provided job security and is one of the few places in the area that an entry-level employee can earn a real living wage
