Looking for to drive a van for railroaders (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMay 22, 2014
Pros: some routes are a lot different and some are not.
Cons: a/c don't work, heat don't work for operator, no heat for passengers, gauage lights out oil, volt, speedometer, r.p.m.
Up at 3:00 A.M. Get ready for work, eat some breakfast, make a sandwich for later.Go to work , punch in times a different days differ
Sunday is 07:25 punch have the bus pre tripped and go to first destination to start. Sunday is a long day 08:00 A.M. to 17:00 P.M.

Learn how to get along with passengers and get them to there destinations on time with – more... out a accident or being late.

Management: Isn't the very best to get along with or to tell you if you are doing a good job????

Co-workers : They very between men and women And when I started there my co-workers helped me when I was driving and now all the new drivers In return I help them . I get along with them all.

Hardest Part of job.
Is trying to keep some routes on time when the route is to long for 30 minutes to get back to ther next bus they have to catch and if they have an appointment to make and they don't make it we get blamed
for not getting them on time.

The Most enjoyable part of the job.
Is you meet some very interesting people and some not so interesting people, but all in all there are some very nice not so very nice people and there are days that you would like to see some of same people every day because they are nice and friendly. – less

The only thing I can say is that this job isn't for everyone. Long hours and you constantly are worrying about if your job is on the line each day. poor leadership to put it politely.

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.

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.
