the job was on the road, at first i was paid to travel that was good. but they relocated me and i had to drive 4 hour to work one way and they took the travel pay away. i was away from home all the the time and never saw my family. the pay was decent and the co-workers made the time go by.
Poor Management and Training - No Worklife Balance
Railroading (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – October 13, 2016
Poor Management and Training - No Worklife Balance. They will grind you until you have nothing left and will not think twice when you leave or get fired. Use and abuse atmosphere. There is a terrible trend of hiring people who are far past there prime and looking to finish off the years needs to get retirement.
Poor Management, Training, No Worklife Balance, intimidating atmosphere
The company is stuck in the 80s from thier technology, infrastructure, and management style. 60 + hour weeks required with "flexible schedules" and the added bonus of constantly having to worry about lay-offs. They did though buy lunch sometimes and gave everyone a lunch box and flashlight!
conductor (Former Employee) – FT. Lauderdale, FL. – April 11, 2014
After working for FEC for many years, I regret having invested a large part of my youth in a company that is runned by liars that claim "safety first" when in reality nothing is further from the truth. They will look the other way when any employee breaks a rule, as long as it benefits the company,but if something is to go wrong while you are doing it they will throw the book at you unless you kiss butt. Promotions to lower management are only given to low lives, who have no morals,as long as they develope instant amnesia, so that they can deny how they use to break rules, cheat, slack, steal, among other things
