I like this job but is isnt worth the sacrifice you make for the pay.

I was unemployed for several months. Railcrew Xpress was the first position offered to me. It doesn't pay well and you have NO form of a personal life. You are on call 24/7 and must be available 24/7 and the compensation is really NOT worth the sacrifice you make.

This company will force you to drive a van full of railroad employees on 5-6 hour trip, even after you tell them that you are not rested, and it is unsafe. They care nothing about safety. It is also illegal with the things they get away with regarding compensation. They pay a horrible, welfare-state mileage rate. You don't get any delay pay, if you are held up by a highway being shut down, due to an accident. This was one of the worst jobs that I've ever had. Don't work for these people - they are crooks.

I have been working for Railcrewxpress for a year and a half, at first I fought system a little bit, but I started going along with system and I started to get more hours. I enjoy the traveling the different personalities. Every job has its pros and cons it is up to the driver what the pros and cons are. If you answer your phone when dispatch calls you will get all the hours you want. To get along you have to go along.
On call 24/7, transporting railroad crews to and from various locations. Never know when or IF you will get a call. Was told to expect 50-60 hours per week but one week may get 40, next lucky to get 15. There is limited communication from mgmt to drivers UNLESS they think you have done something wrong.
crews are generally friendly, most coworkers are friendly
