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 worked at Canadian National Railway full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Money is decent. Employee share program is good.

    Cons

    Schedule is awful. Don't expect weekends off for at least 3 years. Working environment not great - it's a very 'them' vs 'us' mentality between the union workers and management. The union is useless, as was our union representative.
