on any kind of environment your going to have people that don't agree with you or trying to get your job so you have to be flexible and understand their way of acting, make them feel important and let them know you need them to do your work.

Foreman/Operator (Former Employee) – Westfield, MA – October 2, 2016
even though I was very happy to have the job and experiences. I strong feel that this wasn't a good company for me, but for those who are first getting into railroading and have not established themselves in a settled down life style this could be a great job for most.
health insurance, paid hotels and the ability to see a lot of america and start a career
low pay, weak union, no other benefits, inconsistence work at times, poor communications threw out the company, little to no training.

Railroad Signal Maintainer Supervisor (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 7, 2015
I spent a lot of time teaching entry level workers about railroad signaling. Working and teaching others can be fun. It seemed that everyone I taught went on to better jobs elsewhere. Managing the weather and time to get the required work done is an important skill. The best part is being independent and getting the job done correctly.
good company, bad training, no support / positive reinforcement
accounts payable (Former Employee) – Farmingdale, NY – November 25, 2014
Although I enjoyed my job and my co-workers, I found management very unprofessional and lacking. More emphasis on "fitting in" with their idea of a good employee instead of keeping dedicated, hard working ones.
