    Pros

    High compensation and great benefits. Fantastic training and a great place to get experience in the corporate work force. Hunter Camp was a blast.

    Cons

    Sometimes have to deal with very long hours. Must be prepared to sacrifice family time if their is an issue like a derailment.

    Advice to Management

    Give the trainmasters more say so in how the yards are operated and allow for more flexibility when it comes to dealing with the traincrews

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Canadian National Railway (Gladstone, MI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online during February of 2015, the process was surprisingly fast. I flew out to Michigan and because of my previous training I was told that I would be months ahead of any other applicant they would normally interview. They asked me question about the Airbrake Test and the common Gages Carman use daily. They seemed to enjoy the answers I gave them and I'm hoping to hear back.
