    I have been working at Kansas City Southern full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hire in with little experience, learn the railroad in and out, get to know all KCS's customers. Advancement Opportunities for all.

    Cons

    I have not had a con yet. Management Benefits are not as good a Union Employee's. Can be challenging if you do not want learn or push yourself to learn more.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kansas City Southern in August 2010.

    Interview

    Applied on line under career opprotunities www.KCSR.com and it takes 30 min to create a profile before you can submit your resume. The interview in itself consisted of questions that are situational and how you handled such situations with regard to disagreement with a co worker or boss, what is your strength or weakness, characteristics you think a leader should have?
