Good riddance to a terrible company with terrible management. I was laid off a couple of years ago with probably 200 hours in unpaid overtime. I had worked it just in the hopes that I could keep my job after the economy busted and the layoffs started hitting the company.
Management knew I was working overtime, even encouraged it by increasing my work load, and they purposely adjusted my time sheet every week in order to make it appear as if I had only worked 40 hours each week. I kept my mouth shut and worked the overtime because I felt fortunate to still have a job.
We, the employees, were baffled because Trainor was doing massive layoffs, but yet at the same time, they were expanding into new markets, and opening new divisions on an almost monthly basis.
In the end, no matter how much dedication you had to your job, you were just another peon to the Trainor family. I saw a lot of good, honest, and hard-working people get raked over the coals by Trainor Glass Company.
I feel bad for my friends and former coworkers that stayed to the very end, but I do not feel sorry for the upper management that treated so many people so badly.
Yeah, karma is a beautiful thing!

Re: trainor glass
I was a former employee who interned back in 2004 and then worked full time in 2006 to 2007 straight out of college.
This company was a terrible family-owned company. Most of the upper management were either born into the company or married into the company. Head hunters would call your office phone asking if "you want a better opportunity with a different company? We know this company has a high turnover rate"
The high stress and working overtime all the time. I wanted to stick it out for an year just because it was the company coming out of college. I ended up leaving the company to work for another company and taking a pay cut.
I was more surprised that this company did not go under a long time ago.
