Nothing surprises me anymore
Conductor/Engineer (Current Employee) – Flat Rock, MI – March 17, 2016
Ever heard of a 4 month suspension because your work boots weren't laced through the top eyelet? It can happen here. No, it wasn't a situation where the employee was told multiple times. We make $120k/yr... that's basically a $40k fine for shoe laces. It's cheaper to get 4 DUIs.
They will terminate you at the drop of a hat. If they don't like you (maybe your attendance isn't where they'd like it to be, maybe you follow the rule book a little too closely), you're outta here.
They tend to leave me alone, but people around me are dropping like flies. I'm at the point where I don't feel save or secure anymore. Every week somebody is being suspended or terminated and I'm just waiting to make one mistake myself and they give me the boot.
The work itself is enjoyable. I really like the job, but the management is truly vicious. Your co-workers are typically very easy to get along with and enjoyable to work with.
Feel free to apply, but beware all the reviews are true (except the couple random good ones. Must have been written by some kind of shills).
Great pay and pension
Excessive discipline for even first-time or minor mistakes
