I have been working at Canadian National Railway

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 ManagementAdvice

Do away with forcing management to work in the field.

    I have been working at Canadian National Railway full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, outdoors, good union..ish. Some people are willing to help the new guys and won't step on you to much.

    Cons

    Long hours, away from home, good if you're single or looking for a strained relationship, Can't be picky on who you work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They don't know what a plan is to save their lives they run the rails like a bunch of supreme commanders some need to slow it down and listen to those who have been there longer.
