rewarding place to work
you are apart of a team and your ultimate goal is to keep railcars running at full capacity. Billing monthly, learning new software, and billing systems and their locations consumes your day. Speaking sometimes on a daily basis to the shop locations to ensure billing procedures are followed.

Good Work/Life Balance
Watco supported a good work/life balance. They were very understanding about taking off for doctor's appointments and children. It was a very friendly environment.

Fun Work Environment
Watco had a nice work environment. Unfortunately I had to be laid off due to the economy. The job could be challenging since each shop has specific tax requirements per state. That came into account when processing payables.

Worst job I’ve ever had.
Memphis terminal Management is a joke, everyone’s out to get everyone. If you’re not in the inner circle you’re Talked about and talked bad to. I’ve never worked for such an terrible place, no proper training for anything you’re just thrown into the field and wing it. Don’t waste you’re time.

Management plays favorites, hard on the others. Buddy system with two, they get away with anything. Gen Manager is never to be seen. One supervisor is in way over his head, the other thinks he’s way better than everyone else.
Pros
None
Cons
Way too many to list.

Horrible management
The schedule is great only work 14, 12 hour shifts a month. New management and mad with power. Union job so that’s job security. A lot of down time and guaranteed 84 hours of work every 2 weeks. Key note never trust management always looking to show authority. Medium stress and a lot of gossip.
Pros
Great schedule & Union
Cons
Horrible Management

Revenue is the only important thing this company cares about.
Just like every business profits are only important issue employees are expendable expect the upper management upper management needs to listen to the people making the money for the company then make business decisions base on this intake of knowledge

Inovative and customer centered culture
I have been instrumental in developing tracking systems to minimize risk and have managed various claims through out the Watco system. This has brought in direct contact with the men and women who are directly serving our customers. It is my relationships with those individuals that drive me to assist and serve them to help them reach the success they so strongly deserve.

Hard Work, Good People
Management can be difficult to work with, the hours can be tough, but the work is personally rewarding and (most) of the people are great. The early part of your career will be tough but once you settle in things get better

Great management and great people to work with
this company really believes in your family first. I have never worked for a company that did not restrict you by a ton of rules but how you act. They hold you accountable but don't treat you like a child.

Worst work environment I've ever experienced. Very poor mamagement.
Poor management has led to lost buisness and layoffs. Management will watch you on camera waiting for the moment you stop and take a quick break regardless of how much work you and coworkers have completed. Equipment constantly breaks down because the company does not want to spend the money to properly maintain its equipment. I do not recommend working here.

Greed and Hostile
The site that I was working at had terrible managers and extremely greedy. They would get overtime and send you home at 8 hours, theyll work the rest of the shift... (around 12 hours) and get bigger checks while people only got 40 hours.
Overall the managers there are extremely hostile and rude.

No room for growth and poor safety
Good benefits but the pay is not good , also the safety culture is probably the worst I’ve ever worked at . The attitude is usually leaned towards getting the job done no matter the cost.
