Does anyone know what they are really planning on doing in December? Are they going to have a mass lay off or close the plant? Would love to hear if anyone has heard?

They will not close the plant. It will more than likely be a layoff that lasts a few weeks. That is why my husband took another job. He got tired of hillbilly holiday's every Christmas..

My husband has never been laid off. This time they all got letters giving a "60 day notice" of a mass layoff or a closing. Either way they are covered. The letter is a requirement by the Federal WARN act when you are planning to layoff a certain percentage of your staff or close. That's the difference this time as opposed to previous years.

welder b i think starts out at 13.75
welder a i think starts out at 15.75
sweeping the floor starts at 9.50

a lot of it has to do with experance and your weld test. i tested high enough i started out at 15.00 and a year later i'm making 16.25. topped out for welder b. welder a tops out at 17.25

depends on where you get put in the plant say painting. painter a make the same as welder a.
if you are on lead boat or center jig you are looking at 40 to 48 hours a week. 10 hour days mon thur thursday, 8 hours on friday. bottoms, 42 to 62 hours a week. right now its 42 to 50 hours. working every other friday.

raises, dont miss no day, do your job and get along with others no problem with getting 50 cents every 90 days.

benifets are a little high but with no copay it is worth it. life ins. vision. dental. etc.

someone helping you get on priceless. you have a better chance than if you try to go it alone. i my not know you but with your name i can speck up for you with management to help get you in the door. if you dont work out it does not effect my standing with the co. not like nucor.

plus if someone help get you on you get a sign on bonus.$1000 dollors in the first 6 months sound good to you. for welder a. up to you.

going to bed you can call between 3-5 p.m. i will be up by then.

i worked ari for 13 years. 8 years was in the office. i made my change last sep and i have not regreted it.

trinity has order through 2010. and that is at 8 to 10 boats a week.

if you would like to move out of this area. you can always transfer to another one of there plants. still want to build railcar. 2 dollors more an hour in springfield mo. they have plant all over.
