Stable job with good benefits
Conductor (Current Employee), New Haven, CTMarch 27, 2013
Pros: lounge areas, benefits, pay
Cons: travel, odd shifts
Train preparation for service, revenue collection, customer service inquiries. Learn the ins and outs of commuter train operations. Management is minimal as long as standards are maintained. The hardest part is showing up. The job offers a lot of opportunities for varying shifts and locations and good pay.

Not so productive
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), North White Plains, NYOctober 17, 2012
Would come in and take phone calls giving out fares and schedules. Learned about the different metro north lines, stops, and fares. Management had a lot of favoritism. Learning new updates that could happen at every second. Helping people.

Political incompetence and greed rises to the top.
Conductor/ Manager - Training Department (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 9, 2012
Pros: good pay
Cons: bullying, unskilled management; poor union representation
As a recent retiree of Metro-North Railroad, and one of the first female conductors hired in its and Conrail's history, I have experienced the best and the worst this company has to offer. My days were long (both in the management and the crafts) with job quality (hours, days off, accommodations, ability to earn) growing - only to plummet again. But – more... I have retired with a wonderful pension that enables me never to have to work again - if I don't want to. My co-workers on the operations level were some of the best in the world; management, unfortunately, has become, unfortunately, a black hole of political hacks. If people want a mindless yet well paying job and are willing to follow rules blindly - whether appropriate or not - then this is the job for them. I do warn however that unless a candidate has a political connection (think management person) it will be a very difficult job to get. – less
