TRAIN DISPATCHER (Former Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – November 21, 2017
8 Hour Days. Control Center well established with good Management and a good team to work with. You need to pass exams and be certified to work in any position. Everyone works as a team, with solid guidelines and procedures.
Carpenter/ Bridge Mechanic (Former Employee) – Klamath Falls, OR – November 20, 2017
Railroad work environment, with a lot of job advancement and lots of opportunities to find the job best suited for you. Most jobs have a lot of travel included with them but if you dont mind that a great place to work
Diesel Mechanic/Machinist (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – November 19, 2017
Excellent place to work for veterans and great pay. Would work there again in a heart beat!! One of the best company's one could work for and appreciated the quality of work that was produced at the Argentine Maintenance Yard in Kansas City.
Staffing Specialist (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – November 11, 2017
The compensation and benefits at BNSF are great; however, the culture is not. Management treats employees like children - while they expect high performance, they micromanage the employees in odd ways (can't be even a minute late in the morning or leave a minute early in the afternoon).
Locomotive Engineer (Current Employee) – Central California – November 10, 2017
No security after 20 years. Always changing. Do more with less. On call 24/7 with no scheduled days off. Discipline and intimidation heavy from management. False concerns for safety from management. Reduced benefits for employees while increasing bonuses for upper management. Constant "lip service" from all corporate departments and management levels.
Potential for pay
No time off. No family time. Constantly threatened and given discipline.
INTERMODAL EQUIPMENT OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 8, 2017
Poor work/life balance, shift work with night/weekends, underpaid, poor management and planning, terrible morale. Job was easy. Lack of consistent safety message with productivity truly being the end all/be all.
Maintenance Worker/Driver (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – November 6, 2017
You start your day with a morning briefing. Than stretching. you get your truck loaded for the day depending on what you are doing. You will be away from home fro long periods of time. You are expected to respond to any emergency.
free motel, food sometimes, good pay, good friends
Long hours and great chance of break up in relationship
Welder Foreman (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 30, 2017
Unorganized and terrible employees . Bnsf should do better in the hiring process and weed out the sorry ones If it wasn't for the benefits and retirement I would not be working here . The union sucks as well
