CN fires people for no reason if they have a beef with you.

Pros

CN pay is very good but that is totally it!!!

Cons

CN is the worst place you can work period! they make up stuff to get you fired when they have a beef with you. one train crew was totally fired because they blew the whistle for track men moving dangerous material cars with track machines. one was even arrested over made up charges!!! i hope that man has a field day in court with the railroad. the managers make you break rules and then when something goes wrong they call an investigation and fire you. you look over your back everyday you come to work wondering if today will be your last day before you are fired. what kind of life is that dealing with this much stress wondering how you will support your family working with the set of double standards this company uses to get the work done. you could end up fired or worse they try to ruin your life by making false acusations that get you tosed in jail!! this isnt railroading and i have no idea what you would call it. these people need to be investigated by the federal government or something.

Advice to Management

step up to the plate and stop harrasing employees. stop lying in company investigations and elsewhere. treat us like you yourself would want to be treated.

    Pros

    Great pay and excellent benefits. You also have the ability to move up and a fast pace. You also have the option to transfer to a different job if you are unhappy. The coworkers and supervisors are very helpful and will teach you all the skills you will need to be successful at this job.

    Cons

    About as much over time as you can handle,and the fact that you are on call 24 seven. Also the company has a zero tolerance policy for alcohol even the amount in mouth wash. Another down side to the job is that you will have to travel all around the us until you get enough years in.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Flexible hours and easy to work from home when needed. Helps maintain work-life balance.

    Cons

    Management must work in the field, on trains during strike situations as well as when there are shortages in operations. Training is given for field ops but as it is not your day job, you will not feel safe running the trains.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with forcing management to work in the field.
