Management is the worst I've ever seen.
Operations Control Center Train Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Denver, CO 80216June 21, 2019
The entirety of how the company is setup is dysfunctional. Outside of all of the technical issues with equipment, the company does not truly invest in the safety of its employees. Training is severely lacking to the point where the employee had to actually beg the GM for better training. The discipline process is completely flawed as well. There were many instances where a single employee would violate company rules on numerous occasions but they would not be fired where other employees would be fired on their first infraction no matter how minor. Many of the documents that are reported to the public and government agencies are manipulated by management directly or by employees under threat of termination by management for insubordination. There is a union in place for some of the trade crafts in the company, but the agreement has barely any actual protections for the employees. Prior to the union being in place, nearly every trade craft employee was hired under a stepped pay increase system. Of the 80+ employees that were guaranteed these increases, only 2 actually got it. Also, the company has been fighting legal battles for discrimination from multiple employees.

Stressful and lonely
Train Operator (Former Employee) –  Denver, COSeptember 20, 2019
I would say if you enjoy listening to beeping and not being able to talk to people... this job is for you. otherwise its stressful and not worth the headache. Management is poor. Fellow employees are just as bad granted you don't have to see them all that much. Trains are terrible and break down all the time causing delays in service as well as other headaches.
You are alone in the cab which wouldn't be bad if you could have music instead of beeping ever few seconds for a 12 hour shift. beeping is required due to the systems it runs but that's literally all you hear and its very annoying.
