Locomotive Engineer, Conductor, Switchman (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXMarch 17, 2014
Rewarding job with rewarding pay. Poor quality of home life for conductor/engineers though. Company is so large that a lot of times feel like one hand doesn't know what the other is doing.

Co-worker are like family.
Hardest part would be the interruptions.

Travel followed by more travel. Gone all the time and miss a lot of things in live. Good news insurance is great and so is the retirement if you can make it that long.

An environment in which I was all the time learning something new
Human Resource Generalist (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXJanuary 26, 2014
Pros: benefits, employee development, management
Cons: n/a
Working with the Human Resource - Chicago division. A typical day would be traveling to areas of the Midwest region and holding hiring events that would begin at 6:00 a.m. Every event would have varied challenges. The ability to successfully complete despite the various issues or problems that would arise was a learning opportunity. Management was very – more... supportive and felt strongly about employee development. The hardest part of my job were flight delays and cancellations. I enjoyed so much meeting, interviewing and hiring qualified applicants for train service. – less

Fantastic company to work for. Great benefits and compensation. Management was very good and provided good support. Advancement opportunities are plentiful. Only complaint is the work/life balance. Very knowledgeable staff and field crews.

Only reason for resigning was a once in a life time opportunity with family. I would consider joining the company – more... again if the right position came available. – less
