    Pros

    The job is outdoors and pretty interesting.

    Cons

    We have no payed sick leave. There is always the threat of a investigation if you do something wrong, We did not have this threat even in the miltary. We have mangers who are in charge of people and jobs that they have no clue at all about but because they have a degree BNSF believes that they are more qual. to run the show. This is so far of base it's unreal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put people in charge that know what there talking about and who have experience in the job not some college boy who came of the street that does'nt have clue about the job. You don't have to have a degree to manage people and get production, you need the knowledge of the job and real time lines to get it done. And leave people on task to the end quick jerking them all over the place to put out fires mangers think need put out.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, union job, great comraderie with co-workers, can work locally or over the rail, plenty of downtime on the job.

    Cons

    Can take a toll on your personal/family life, irregular work schedule can be a challenge mentally and physically, good chance you will be laid-off for periods of time during your first 5-years of employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the trainmasters do their jobs. Give your workers some recognition for a job well done once in a while.
