Some managers are better than others

Track Laborer (Current Employee)
Stevens Point, WI

ProsGreat wages and benefits. They have an employee stock purchase plan where the company matches $0.35 of every $1 you put in. Adding your family to your health insurance doesn't cost you extra.

ConsDepending on where you live you might not be home much. Each job/position is put out for bidding. It is then awarded based on seniority and your "qualifications". Some jobs are considered mobile and you are paid a per diem to help pay for your hotels, food and travel. Some jobs are "headquartered" and only pay you your hourly wage. Problem is there might not be a per diem job available or you don't have enough seniority which means you will have to work a headquartered job that may not be all that close to where you live.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    DOUBLE STANDARDS!

    Conductor (Current Employee)
