Tenneco Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Tenneco (formerly Tenneco Automotive and originally Tennessee Gas Transmission Company) is an American Fortune 500 company that has been publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange since November 5 1999, under the symbol TEN. Tenneco, with headquarters in Lake Forest, Illinois, United States is an automotive components original equipment manufacturer and an aftermarket ride control and emissions products, manufacturer.
As Tenneco is one of the big organizations of gas and fuels resources, so they think they are above the law and can do whatever they want. Tenneco remained in the news because of its corruption in the 90's period. In 1992, New York State Tax Commissioner issued Tenneco Oil Company a notice of Determination of Tax due under the motor fuel tax law alleging that Tenneco owned tax on jet fuel is sold untaxed to Doug-Long. Millions of gallons jet fuel sold to Doug-Long without any tax. Jet fuel burned in heavy bikes and trucks because of Tenneco corruption. No doubt, the more the organization is big, the bigger its sh*t.
Former Employee - Machine Operator says"No work life balance, competitive pay,"
Former Employee - Packer says"No AC heavy lifting and horrible leads"
Current Employee - Supervisor says"As the transition happens from Federal Mogul to Tenneco there is NOTHING positive."
Former Employee - Company Grade Officer says"TENNECO Leadership continues to drive company in to the RED. Most Recent Negative Earnings -10.34 (yes that is a MINUS -10.34) continues to degrade TENNECO's capability to innovate old outdated systems. Recent resignations abound: Board of Directors Tenneco, Inc. 500 North Field Drive Lake Forest, IL 60045 To my Fellow Directors: It is with regret that I write to inform you that I hereby resign as a director of Tenneco, effective immediately. While I have appreciated my time on the board, you have made decisions with which I strongly disagree and which are inconsistent with my views on what is best for Tenneco and its shareholders. My dissatisfaction with the board should come as no surprise. In October, we discussed my letter to the board in which I expressed my concerns regarding Tenneco’s direction and the dangers of continuing with the board’s strategy at the time. Had swift action been taken at that time, Tenneco would have been in a much better situation coming into today’s COVID-19 crisis. Based on the last year of discussions, I have little confidence that my input will result in meaningful board actions and it is not productive for me to keep advocating for change if my suggestions continue to fall on deaf ears. Tenneco is a world class company with tremendous products, technology and employees. I wish you and our hard working employees the best. Sincerely,"
Former Employee - Machine Operator says"Forced Overtime, especially when you're in college."
Former Employee - Quality Control Technician says"terrible management, long hours, filthy facility,"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"It was one of the worst environments I have ever worked in....many employees are so frustrated they are looking for new roles. While many reviews will discuss the financial state of the business (even some that have been deleted recently) the only thing I find worse than the financial state is the way the employees are being treated. Many executives lead their departments with a chauvinistic style of leadership that make employees afraid to speak up. Often times leaders blamed their poor performance on those who were juggling multiple projects and competing priorities that led to many employees to seek employment elsewhere. Some of us even jumped ship without another offer in hand. There are no women in leadership positions left within Tenneco which I think speaks for itself. I am hopeful the board is looking at not only the financial aspects but the current morale and engagement of employees left and the current style of leadership that is taking place at the very top levels."
Former Employee - Machine Operator says"Bending supervisor just decides he doesn’t like you for some reason and no matter how hard you work, he’ll find something to fire you over whether it’s true or not. Machines NEVER work and they expect you to hit rate every single day all day even though the machines are always down and you get new people to train every single day. Even if the entire cell isn’t hitting rate, if you’re on the gage it’s always your fault no matter what."
Former Employee - Production Line Worker says"long work days, poor management, no loyalty to workers, bad communication"

Machine Operator (Former Employee) says"The best thing that could have happened to walker australia pty Ltd was closing down. A culture of bullying and harassment both from management and co-workers. The psychologist i see admitted that he consulted with people who worked there. Was told at the induction "what ever happens in here stays in here". Wander why?? The company was corrupt and draconian in every way. I wish i never worked there! It was like the dark ages working there! like some Charles Dickens 1800s industrial era!!!large parking lot"
Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) says"Worked as a Manufacturing Engineer for over 7 years.The managers are put into their positions based upon how well they can push their subordinates. Extremely unprofessional. Average raise 1.5% per year.401K matchingManaged by idiots"

Production Worker (Current Employee) says"Just don't with this company. Unions a joke management also a joke unless you like being told your worthless and will never amount to anything then this is the place for youNonePlace is a joke better off buying from china"
Manager (Former Employee) says"This company preaches safety first and no work related accidents but they prioritize Production. The company doesn’t keep top talent during a pandemic and is only worried about the bottom line. The Plant Manager is also under qualified without a college degree, shows favoritism and is illiterate. The company as a whole is in a total tail spin and is a dumpster fire 🔥."
Cariste (Former Employee) says"Cette entreprise prend constamment de nouveaux intérimaires qu’ils remplacent toute les semaines aucuns contrat sérieux rien de bon"
Agent logistique (Former Employee) says"Aucun respect pour les employés de la part de la direction."

Employee (Current Employee) says"Bad operations manager and 3rd shift supervisor a lot of favoritism from these 2 to certain individuals they can have prejudice ways at times very hard to move up in the company because of unfair Practices"
Welder (Former Employee) says"It was blistering hot in the summer and freezing cold in the winter. We worked like slaves. They were very unfair. We needed things to be fixed and the would bandaid it and tell us to keep running. They always talked about quality Parts. But how can you make Quality Parts if the machines are working with or not coming out to spec and our team needs still pass it. And when it gets sent back us as the welders get in trouble"
Pipe Bending operator (Former Employee) says"Would not work there anymore manager are rude and treat the employee's unfair Tenneco is garbage. I tell friends don't work there they don't show you how to run the different types of machinery in order to work in a safe and proper manner they just throw your on the machine and you have to learn on your own which is not good so in my opinion Tenneco is not a great place to work at."
Production Associate (Former Employee) says"Big turn over, would not recommend. For it being a union shop no Stewart's on floor. You hav'ta call union hall make appt to see your Stewart. Much better places to wrk."
Production Operator (Former Employee) says"I do not recommend working here unless you are absolutely desperate for a job. They start you off with 8$ an hour while working mostly 12 hour days. They will also forget to give you break for hours on end. The plant is closing down soon anyway.The FoodEverything Else"
worker (Former Employee) says"This is feast or famine. Get rid of good workers and keep the worst ones. Head of HR is a joke. They do not go by a burden of proof. Ligonier campus is a joke. They keep Supervisors who sleep with their operators. They do not follow their own hand book except when they are trying to get rid of you."
Operator/Laborer (Current Employee) says"The only reason I am still an employee here is for a paycheck. HR and upper management are unethical & lack integrity. Favoritism should be their motto. Training is obsolete, accountability is more like the blame game, and trying to advance will get you a ticket to the unemployment line. Hard-working employees are usually let go or fired while bad behavior, for the most part, is rewarded with a promotion. Going to HR on issues or concerns will cost you your job. Being honest and ethical will also cost you your job. I implore anyone looking for job security, growth, or professionalism DO NOT work here.free gatorade in the summer monthstoo many to list..."
Machine Operator (Current Employee) says"This place is an oppresive,non-caring,nighrmare of a place to work.The HR and managment is a joke.They dont care about you.blank.Do not take a job here you will regret it.NoneShort breaks, nightmare managment you are treated like you are dirt."
General Operator (Former Employee) says"Tenneco is ran like a bad joke. Six months ago they promoted a bunch of inexperienced kids 18-25 years old to be team leaders which drove the indirect labor cost through the roof. They cause drama due to the lake of actual work that needs to be done but they feel there above hands on work, the supervisors are lazy and friends with the team leaders so they don’t make them do anything. Supervisors rather spend time harassing the seniority employees while there team leaders hang out with there arms crossed or hands in there pockets all day sitting in the offices With there feet up on the desks, eating, and talking. The management including HR know this is what’s going on. Discrimination at its worst. I am embarrassed to say I worked there.None in the past six monthsDiscrimination, unlawful hippa violations of personal information"
M Utimov says"22/09/2018 Mr Exhaust Reigate I intended to replaced the rear exhaust on my Skoda 1.9 tdi. Firstly I checked online on their website, it was advertised as being a Bosal exhaust, even the part no was given (Bosal 282-985), I was pleased with their price, I called to get the appointment - all fine. I arrive there, car checked, they agree the part must be replaced, they bring a cheaper part (Walker 22977), I informed them about the difference , that it looks cheap, but they said that unfortunately, Bosal is in admin they can't give me the part mentioned on the website, but the price is the same!!! The guy was polite, well trained ( in defending company's interests, he honestly deserves a pay rise), finished a 10 min job in 45 min (is anyone surprised here?!!!) , replaced unnecessary, in my opinion, 2 mounts free of charge ( probably embarrassed by the entire situation), allowed me to inspect the job. At the end of the experience, I received £10 voucher like all previous customers, which I will never use, and some marketing materials; I had a coffee free of charge. ( to clarify, the coffee was not at the end, but while waiting for the job to be done) I wasn't invited like the previous customer to review online their job, a clear discrimination, but why, why?!!!! I ended up paying more for less in terms of quality ... Will I ever use them? Ahh......No."
