    I have been working at Norfolk Southern full-time (more than 10 years)


    railroad retirement plan is superior to social security. very stable employer. above average pay. good benefits (but they are fading fast). For those who are lazy and have a high sense of entitlement, unfortunately, NS won't fire you.


    railroad retirement makes it difficult to leave. they are cutting benefits each year. health care probably gone in a year or two. poor performers paid abt same as top performers. Top executives grant themselves the company college scholarships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward based on performance. Get rid of bottom 5-10% would make a very efficient machine.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Norfolk Southern.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was straightforward. One of my interviewers was very nice and easy to talk to while to other one was distant and cold, almost like the interview was an imposition to him. Overall, I did not get a good feeling from the company and would not have taken a position there if offered.
