    I worked at BNSF Railway

    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.
