You felt like family working here.
Planner / Buyer (Former Employee), Clinton, IANovember 9, 2013
Pros: friendly atmosphere with good work ethics.
Cons: plant closing
The company was a good mix of people and while working there it gave you a sense of family. There was a good mix of helping hands to work you towards advancement and once advanced to help you to excel in your position. I felt good going to work each and every day. If the plant would not have closed I would have retired from here.

It was enjoyable when part where done according to standards.
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Jonesboro, ARJune 28, 2013
Pros: bring ones own lunch or do without.
Cons: short breaks, medical was to the fullist and complete.
A days work started at 06:00 until 14:30 or with overtime also.
How to work with others in a non military manner.
They could receive more involvement with employees to find
about their lifestyle and their dos and don'ts.
Job knowledge and they complained about everything that
wasn't correct to their standards.
Understanding the companies standards and – more... policy with their work ethics.
Actually doing the job you was hired to do. – less

All-around hard-working job
2nd Shift Back-Up Team Leader (Former Employee), Portland, TNApril 17, 2013
Pros: hard decent work and advancement options.
Cons: very hot at times and work can pressure you.
Depending on what division you are in you may have to work really hard that day. You get placed at a specific station and are expected to collect the parts...bag them...water them...seal them...and place them in the appropriate containers while keeping up with the speed of the machine that is pressing out parts. Management is great. They don't just – more... let anybody become a manager, and they are trained from lower positions so they know what it's like starting out hard. There is a very diverse amount of co-workers at T&B. The hardest part of the job is all the learning curves. Every press machine is different and runs on different speeds depending on the machine operator for that day. Time flies by like crazy because you are so caught up with the actual work that you don't have time to worry about the clock. – less

Bad News

Pros: get paid weekly
Cons: bad management
Not a Very reliable work place, company was bought out and employees were down sized and let go. Management walked out with out any explanation, HR, and Plant MGR, employees who were close to retirement decided to retire ahead of time, was not a good turn out for employees during the buy out.

INDUSTRIAL ELECTRICIAN (Former Employee), Osawatomie, KSOctober 30, 2012
My first full time position was as an industrial electrician with this corporation. I enjoyed what I did daily on the job, but I feel that the corporation did not care about it's employees, just the bottom line. I know they have to turn a profit, but the way they did it was immoral.

Stepping Back
HR Specialist (Current Employee), Albuquerque, NMOctober 27, 2012
Pros: employee relations, facilitated training, opportunity for growth, work/life balance
Cons: once i came on board plant mngr left and hrm is leaving.
I stepped back from the "top dog" position to find a better balance of work/life. I have a great boss and peers that work as a team to achieve this. I admire that TnB continues to put forth the time with on-going training such as LEIN, ergonomics, OSHA, A3 in order for me to gain perspective with manufacturing. Some opportunities lie with communication – more... to all employees on a 24/7 facility with 400 employees. – less

Everyone was really nice, fun to be around. A normal day at work I would enter type sheets from the day before and make changes if needed. Answer phones, file paper work, get weld test ready, anything thats asked of me.
