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

    Pros

    Decent pay and lots of overtime. Convenient location.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There 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.

    I worked at Trinity Industries

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    When 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 ManagementAdvice

    More employee focus...take care of your most valuable assets.

    I have been working at Trinity Industries

    Pros

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

    Cons

    In 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 ManagementAdvice

    Senior 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.
