KCS Railroad
Manager, Crew Services (Former Employee), Shreveport, LADecember 2, 2014
I go into my place of employment with a good attitude; any problems outside the office is left outside. I make sure of the tasks for the morning throughout the afternoon. As a manager, I learned how to be a friend, but also professional with handling business. I always had an "open door policy". This insures that if an employee has a concern I'm there to help and if I don't have answers, I would find them.

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.

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!
