I worked at Trinity Industries

Pros

You take on the entire plant with no traing or guidance. There isn't a whole lot of advancement possibilites in upper Execitve leves in Tennessee. If you are willing to move, you might do well. Trinity gives one a great opportunity to try to figure out what is going on. The corporate office EVENTUALLY send some brings you in for training that doesn't happen while you are in the corporate office. If you are a STRONG laborer, welder, pipe-fitter, or electrician you have a great potential. If you have a strong desire to become a welder, or take welding classes - this very well might be a good company for you to work. Get some experience, get paid while you learn, then move on to a company where you can get paid for your experience and education. Trinity is a great place to learn welding.

Cons

There's a BIG turonver in middle and upper level management. Don't expect the people that have interviewed there to be there long after you have started.There's a BIG turonver in middle and upper level management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The potential trainer leaves a few weeks b4 employee is brought on board. The supervisor and HR manager that interviewed the new employee left less than 6 weeks after the employee was hired. Make sure the new HR manager and supervisor understand what their predecessors expected of the newly hired employee.

    Pros

    Many different industries from Rail, Utility Structures, Wind Towers, LPG (Liquid Propane Gas), Facilities and General Maintenance, Marine, and Highway Products. If it involves steel they make it. When one industry is going through a down period the other industries are booming - so it balances.

    Cons

    Opportunities to be promoted from within are very slim to non-existent. They usually hire from the outside for those positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider promoting existing employees rather than looking to the outside.
