Awful. Upon interview, you are told UP TO 40 hours per week, but I haven't had a day off since June and I finally quit at the end of October. My weekly hours averaged 55 hours. They don't care about your personal/home life. And they intimidate you to work weekends and do others work or you'll be fired...yet they're so short staffed, how can they fire you? They need you! This place is like being blackmailed everyday of your life. Run far, far away from this place!!!

Most benefits they offer you must be full-time. The insurance they offer has an EXTREMELY high deductible-rate and it's very expensive! Say bye-bye paycheck! The medical insurance no longer covers most pharmacy prescriptions and you can't OPT OUT of it until ONE YEAR later! So please read and figure out how much it's going to cost you before you sign up (and they give you a VERY short window to do so). Most people pay most of their paychecks towards the insurance and it's not right, even to have to be paying a $2,000+ deductible on top of that before you can use it!

High-stress, strung out, very tense environment. 4 people were diagnosed with high blood pressure within the first 2 months of employment here this past year and they've never had a problem with blood pressure before. It is very sad. It is the worst place I've ever had to work. And it's not just the high amount of work, it's mostly the way the company is ran by 2 female "directors" who intimidate people to work or else they'll be fired. I worked 55 hours per week since June with 2 young children I never got to see because I was always working. It's not fair and they don't care about your health (I'm type 1 diabetic!) or family life. I would have to get an approval of 6 different people at PTI just to make a doctor's appointment. Nightmare.

A LOT of railroads end their contracts with PTI because of their poor work ethic. They no longer have any connection with most railroads and only 1 CSX branch. Burlington Northern and Union Pacific have all cut their branches in half (or more) and went with another company. The only reason they still had some of their branches in contract with PTI is because there were/are no other companies in those areas, so PTI was the only choice. One railroad director recently visited the PTI headquarters in Evansville and admitted openly (and loudly) that if it weren't for PTI being the only transportation company in the Northwestern US, they would have switched in an instant. He also said that "they're working on it" as in they are working on getting another company up and running in that area so they can finally cut ties with PTI. Kudos to that man!
