    I worked at BNSF Railway full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    4 on 3 off work schedule. Great pay and benefits. Great if you get a yard job or if your single and can travel.

    Cons

    Company does NOT like and is very discrimitory against people with slight disabilites. They want a perfect workforce. Little family time. Layoffs regular. Senority is a big thing, its not about what you know its about how long you have been there. Someone with more years than you can come in and just take your job leaving you jobless for a little while. Management seems to not care at all about the union protected employees. BNSF= Better Not Start a Family!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more of an open mind and compassion for people with slight disabilites. Just because they have a little something wrong with them does not mean they are not valuable assets. Most have more to offer than your normal workforce. Work on your ethics. Care as much for the employees as you do yourself. Put yourself in their shoes. At the end of the day we are all just trying to make a living and feed our family.
