Not a fair playing field.
conductor (Former Employee) –  FT. Lauderdale, FL.April 11, 2014
After working for FEC for many years, I regret having invested a large part of my youth in a company that is runned by liars that claim "safety first" when in reality nothing is further from the truth. They will look the other way when any employee breaks a rule, as long as it benefits the company,but if something is to go wrong while you are doing it they will throw the book at you unless you kiss butt. Promotions to lower management are only given to low lives, who have no morals,as long as they develope instant amnesia, so that they can deny how they use to break rules, cheat, slack, steal, among other things
Pros
good pay
Cons
every thing else

If you like to be managed by fear and threats then this is the place for you.
Dispatcher PTCs (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLNovember 18, 2015
The company is stuck in the 80s from thier technology, infrastructure, and management style. 60 + hour weeks required with "flexible schedules" and the added bonus of constantly having to worry about lay-offs. They did though buy lunch sometimes and gave everyone a lunch box and flashlight!
