Proud place to work,

Chief Dispatcher (Former Employee)
Greenville, TX

ProsVery strong company financially. Consistently challenging from day to day. The senior management is the best business minds in the country as far as running a railroad.

ConsRailroad operations run 24/7/365 and need employees to do it. Most operational jobs with NS are nontraditional hours so any prospective employee should be aware of this.

Advice to Senior ManagementSince the non-management positions are union, the one of the most difficult position is a junior manager. You will be the work horse, but suck it up. If you perform, you won't be in that position long.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
