A great place to work for strong individuals.

Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee)
Oklahoma City, OK (US)

I worked at Trinity Industries full-time for more than a year

ProsDecent pay and lots of overtime. Convenient location.

ConsVery few days off. Lack of care for employees. No compensation for being away from friends and family.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be bonuses given for the extra work that people do to complete quotas. They should figure out a schedule that will get the quotas accomplished and allow employees time off to spend with family and friends.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

When Its Good Is Really Good, When It's Bad It's Really Bad

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I worked at Trinity Industries

ProsI was given the opportunity to move around and learn different aspects of the business and there were plenty of opportunities to dig into the details and learn new things or make improvements.

ConsWhen business gets tough, decisions are made based on who knows you and likes you rather than on who are the best people for the job.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore employee focus...take care of your most valuable assets.

Very Rewarding until recently!

Truck Driver (Current Employee)

I have been working at Trinity Industries

ProsMade some wonderful lifelong friends that are on the same work level as I am. The experience you recieve is rewarding and useful.

ConsIn the past work was very plentiful and you were allow to work as much as you need to. Some of the benefits are not as great as they use to be. Morale is poor. Communication between lower management and employee is extremely poor.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior Management needs to take a concern interest in lower management decisions. Overall management needs to listen to the concerns and opinions of the employees that are out in the field.

I worked at Trinity Industries

Prosi was able to get overtime usually anytime I needed it. And the work was never usually to hard to do.

ConsNoone ever knew what was going on. You might come in one day and do one thing, and then undo it all the next.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good place to learn but pay isn't competitive enough to keep seasoned employees

IT Area (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I worked at Trinity Industries

ProsGood team culture. Management is understanding of time off needed. Great place to learn advanced technologies for the willing employee. Training is offered although tough to get.

ConsPay is not isn't competitive enough to keep seasoned employees. It is hard to stay when any job offer a person gets will probably be a lucrative raise. The vacation policy is very strange. It amounts to one week vacation the first year of employment depending on what month a person starts. It is a business casual environment but the dress code is strict. Jeans are not allowed.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore competitive salaries would go a very long way to creating lifers. People want to work there but employees are forced to leave for monitary reasons.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Trinity Industries

ProsBenefits are in line with industry standards. Strarting to use technology to advance company. Somewhat behind with other industries because old habits change slowly.

ConsHead strong management. Older industry with older ideas and outdated thoughts. As management retires, company is getting better. Still a good company.

Advice to Senior ManagementManegers need to get some new ideas from younger upcoming professional coming out of college. Need to pay these rising starts a premium in line with other competitors salaries in order to bring them on board.
