Fun job if you like the cold or hot weather
Railroad Contractor (Former Employee) –  Crete, ILOctober 12, 2013
I did enjoy the job a lot, the only downfall was the manager you are stuck working with.
The people who work within the office are a great group of people.

Excellent place to work for if you can dodge the yearly lay offs
Welding Supervisor (Current Employee) –  NationwideJanuary 11, 2018
I started in August of 2014 and was laid off in 2016, I was rehired in 2017. So glad to be back. They tend to lay off at the end of each year, then hire at the start of the next year. If you have an in you can most likely get back on. There are certain managers that are inexperienced and could make your life a little harder. But besides those things here's some more detailed info. You make $32 per diem and $0.54/mile, if you have your own place to stay (camper/RV or house) they will give you a $55/day lodging allowance. They will pay for your flights or rental car should you need one. Point is you can make a LOT of money if you're willing to make the effort. I would say being a welding supervisor contracted with U.P.R.R., on an 8 days on and 7 days off schedule, is one of the best jobs a single person with no kids can have.
Pros
Pay, reimbursement, Possibly your schedule, some managers
Cons
Possibly your schedule, some managers

Great for the guy with no family or children
Test Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Crete, ILAugust 11, 2017
Even a driver is on salary, 3 weeks out/1 week at home. Quite a bit about the job that is interesting and appealing. A passport will get you assignments in Canada and Mexico, but you can count on seeing every airport in the US. You get to keep your hotel points, and airfare miles, which is a perk. Great benefits.
Count on long days, and 6 and 7 day work-weeks, and also that you are gonna be getting dirty and greasy working on your truck.

The Company WINTER PICNIC in January is something to behold! Awesome prizes, food and liquor, your significant other flown to Chicago with accomodations paid. An awesome time.

TrackSTAR driver.
Pros
See the country, or even all of North America, including Alaska, solid benefits
Cons
Salary may bring your hourly pay down
