    I have been working at BNSF Railway

    Pros

    Money, time off (I'm "allowed" more time off here than in any of my previous jobs), benefits, and (most) of the people. The work/life balance is what you make of it. Prioritize time off if you have a family and other activities

    Cons

    On call, odd hours, some trainmasters/management, some of the people you work with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to get valid claims paid easier, focus attention (ops tests, etc) more on those with bad attitudes and poor work ethic than those with good attitudes and good work ethic. This would begin to foster a new generation of attitudes and perceptions of management

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BNSF Railway.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is pretty basic and straight forward. They explained exactly what to expect. The interview itself is 1 day, but the entire hiring process takes a while. Ignore what other people say about casual dress, it's an interview so dress to impress and make sure your hair is long enough because they often do a hair test the same day they interview.
