Good Place to get your foot in the Railroad Industry
Laborer Worker 3 (Former Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – September 14, 2017
All around good place to work, to learn roles played in the railroad industry , company offers lots of overtime. If you are a newer employee , job security is slim to none during lay offs not due to production but due to seniority.

Honestly believe working here for the year that I did was the hardest work at the lowest pay but I was able to achieve a couple certificates that abled me to get a better job at general electric transportation it was worth it
Good place to work with good pay and decent benefits
Machine Operator/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Lewistown, PA – April 25, 2017
it's a great place to work, they work around what shift you will need to be on & have different types of work, with different pay rates..they seem to treat everyone with respect and have a decent paying and working system
good pay, decent benefits, great people and relaxed place to work
Very dirty work environment, everything is fixed with a bandage instead of the proper way.
Forlift Operator (Former Employee) – California – March 11, 2017
Offload and Inbound Product Consistently feed production lines. Gained a better appreciation for a well organized system. Management had safety and objective meetings every morning. Employee culture was 95 percent male but diverse. Working outdoors was challenging. Good working hours with occasional overtime.
Good working hours
Forklifts were not properly serviced and maintained
I don't have any complaints it was good work. Great starting job for welders that are new but not for a career. 10 hour shifts which I liked. I learned a lot on how Assemble lines work. Great work environment. People are friendly and will work with you to get the job done.
Desktop Support Engineer (Former Employee) – Lake Oswego, OR – January 17, 2017
The company is mostly solid, but the political environment within the company is horrible. People will back stab you to gain nothing but a smile from the boss. People are unwilling to help for fear that you may get credit they will not. Many managers act unprofessional and will set you up to fail when possible to protect their position.
Human Resource Generalist (Former Employee) – Cleburne, TX 76031 – August 30, 2016
I loved my job. Everyday there was something new to learn. When the upper corporate changes took place and the merger happened though a lot of the employees that were valued by the previous company were no longer wanted by the new managers.
A typical work day is fast passed and busy. It involves a great deal of standing and walking. Responsibilities range in complexity, including, but not limited to: -Incoming, in process and final weld, parts and paint Inspection -Reviewing manuals -Writing and revising SOP's -Maintaining calibration schedule -Heavily involved in compliance and system audits
I have learned to be patient with people of diverse ideals. Also, I've learned that if you spend time with the people who do the job, day in and day out, that there is a wealth of knowledge to be tapped. I don't ave to have all the answers. It's okay to learn from other people.
Management is not exceptional but things get done and I have no complaints regarding my managers.
Co-workers are mainly old mill workers, gritty and hard-nosed. No one is afraid to get dirty.
The most difficult aspect of my job is that there is so much to do and not enough time to do it.
What's enjoyable about my job is that I do not have a lot of downtime. I like that the my doesn't drag.
