Overall Reviews at Tenneco

Commodity Manager | Monroe, MI | Dec 20, 2019
An unstable work environment
I spend 50% of my day in crisis management, 25% tactical and 25% strategic activities. The company senior leadership is not transparent to goals and methods to achieve them.
Senior Buyer | Monroe, MI | Dec 22, 2019
Long hours, work life balance
The company is great company to work for the people are very knowledgeable and caring. The training is lacking on systems, processes for Purchasing. Tenneco needs help on documentation, tracking tools for parts, prints, and logistics

A traditional automotive supplier, with excellent benefits.
An excellent work environment with a wonderful people and excellent benefits. Consistent pay increase, 401k matching, and flex hours. Advancement is possible but can be challenging.
Team Leader | Grass Lake, MI | Mar 27, 2019
Depends on what group you are in
You are able to skate by if you are in a low functional group, but if you are in a high functional group then hang on tight. If you prove you are a hard worker then the management staff will just keep pilling things onto you until you are overwhelmed.
Safety Coordinator | Hartwell, GA | Mar 13, 2019

If i have a felony on my record will it affect me being hired
Asked Dec 21, 2016
Sometimes it had to do with the position that you apply for and what kind of job it is . I even think it depends on the severity of the crime .
Answered Jan 4, 2019
I think this depends on the position that you are applying for. A position working in the plant probably not a problem, but a corporate job it probably would be.
