Conductor/Engineer in Greybull, WY
on December 4, 2021
I worked as a conductor, brakeman and engineer for five years. Pay and benefits are good. On call 24/7. Must manage your time off since the phone can ring to go to work every 10 hours.
Carman in Pasco, WA
on December 3, 2021
Terrible schedule. Horrific management. Company could care less about employees. Weak union. No raise in 3 years. Lots of people leaving for a reason.
Carman/Welder in Barstow, CA
on December 2, 2021
Mechanical staff is seniority driven worthless people with seniority get best days off and dump work on lower seniority. Most leadership takes care of their click.

work is good and study however you will not have any type of home life. lie to you about advancement within the company. Pending on your objective take your chance
Locomotive Engineer/Railroad Conductor in Denver, CO
on November 29, 2021
The pay will be tempting, but it will never be worth the sacrifices they demand of you. Attendance policies are archaic and only getting worse. No amount of money they throw will ensure job security when they’re constantly trying to downsize and furlough their people.

Interview Questions

How your your current or past supervisors respond if asked about your attendance. Have you ever been involved in a work related injury. What skills do you have that are relatable to this position. Why should we pick you. What are your experiences working in outdoor weather. What are your experiences working in different shifts and holidays? I dont think I was ready and I think I didn't interviewed that well. But I wish I was more ready with better complete answers. I really could have represented myself better. I would have been a tremendous candidate not sure if they saw that.
