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
Overall a good place to work but a different lifestyle b/c of the time away from family.

Many benefits including pay scale and insurance. Not a job for everyone because of the long hours and time away from family. You will miss some holidays, birhdays, ballgames and other family activities. If you can adopt to this lifestyle it is overall a pretty good job, most people that start retire from it.
Mechanical Management Trainee (Former Employee) – Barstow, CA – October 3, 2017
My manager literally spit in my face multiple times. Asked me to fire a few employees less than a month away from retirement because they had gone over 2 minutes on their break. Horrible management. Disgusting people. Stressful life.
everything. All lower management was looking for a new job

As a child I dreamed about working on the railroad, after finally pursing it, boy what a eye opener. Ive been with this company for nearly 4 years and wow the changes I’ve seen in such short time. The largest draw back is the 4 inch thick rule book that you are expected to live by but are scolded if you hold back production for the sake of being safe. Your also tested on these rules continuously to the point it’s annoying. Management hides and watches you work, also have to deal with several random audit teams. The company preaches safety but its INVALID when stuff hits the fan. The management is spineless, they will talk out of their rears when you ask questions or when they are speaking to a group of employees. Most of the mangers wont even answer their phones or return your phone call when you honestly need something leaving you to blindly guess. The company brags about chances for advancement and opportunities for craft transfer, INCORRECT! You will be stuck in whatever you hired out for. UNLESS you’re willing to sideline your family and travel the entire USA without coming home on weekends. JOB CUTS keep coming and all you hear about is budget this budget that yet the company brags about billions in profits PER QUARTER. STAY AWAY! Weak unions offer little to none employee protection. Lastly the buddy system runs thick with this employer. Craft Seniority means nothing, people dance around this all the time. Junior employees working by the house over senior employees. All because of the buddy system. I Really regret taking this job, it has become a extreme disappointment,more... I will be leaving soon.less
Pay, retirement if you can make it.
No lunch breaks, continuous job cuts, cut throat environment
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Roswell, GA – September 28, 2017
Good start but unless you are handed large accounts it is not long term. The benefits are great, 40lK 6%, good med. The logistics industry is tough but you can make a decent living if you have enough accounts.
