Hahaha, they've had to raise the starting rate to attract employees, lazy, non motivated people who want to be in charge and abuse people is what you will encounter. If you get with a disgruntled crew chief or op 2 that's running a machine you'll get hours, get with a lazy supervisor who is just here getting by you won't get nothing. Big promises but the employees are pond scum, the turnover rate is trendies, they have full time recruitment and training classes because the turnover is probably in the higher hundreds to lower thousands per year, think I'm joking ? You'll see, class of 35 I was the only one left after 5 months and they done had 3 more training classes in that 5 months. They can't keep people because that don't listenšŸ¤“. They do whatever they can to keep the ones in charge and the ones in charge don't want anyone to advance as it's a threat to them, be prepared to do a 26 dollar an hour job for peanuts

If you go to a shoulder ballast cleaner, you won't be constantly lifting(realistically anything unless you are fixing something) You will be lifting fairly heavy(40-50lbs +-) for the most part at least twice a day(wheel chocks and derail) unless its maintenance day. Mainly normal tools unless something big is broken.

For me they kinda did but didnt. I think mainly because my 2 weeks were coming up anyways(after 9 weeks fyi) I let my superintendent know and kept telling him every so often to remind him and he was trying to work with me, because I told him I was not going to miss it regardless lol. You're better off trying to have your 2 weeks right before your child is due, because mine went pass the due date then we had complications, so I asked for another week(because I wanted to go back and they dont pay for that time off anyways; plus who cares with the amount of people they go through). Basically necessarily expect to but don't quit trying
