A great learning experience
Assistant Manager/Manager of Payroll Accounting (Former Employee), Kansas City, MONovember 18, 2013
I really enjoyed my time at Kansas City Southern Railway. I learned so much about systems, unions, parallel testing, implementation, etc. My supervisor let me manage and did not get involved unless I asked him to. I really appreciated that.

Well paying job but effort is required. Most of your time is spent on conference calls and delegating work. Job requires 24x7 attention.

Great place to work! Best employees, from train crews to trainmasters.
Train Crew Conductor (Former Employee), Wylie, TXMay 3, 2012
Pros: benefits
Cons: sometimes at home to long.
Very safe and aware co-workers. Learned team work and developed safe work habbits. The hardest part of the job was the long waits in sidings. The most enjoyable part was getting out their switching cars in the yard and the joy of mainline movement. Enjoyed the entire part of the job and cant wait to get back!
