    I have been working at BNSF Railway


    Money, time off once you get the seniority, in general you don't have anyone breathing down your neck. If you really put your nose to the grindstone 120k+ is pretty do able if we are busy.


    Living in the middle of no where and long hours away from home. Lotta salty old heads out here
