    I worked at RailCrew Xpress full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    my favorite part about working here was getting the opportunity to experience what its like to work an on call job and to explore new places.

    Cons

    some challenges of working here include: working 6 days a week, being on call 24 hours a day, not being able to really have much of a life outside of work. definitely deserve more pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    my advice to management is to provide your employees with somewhat of a schedule and better benefits, including better pay.

    Pros

    Great way to meet railroaders and learn about the railroading and transportation industry, if that happens to be your passion in this life.

    Cons

    Will not let you sleep your full 8 hours before calling you again; never paid attention to days off - you had to stand your ground on that; never willing to give the driver information to do their job and relied on the railroaders to fill the driver in; no real example set by any of the supervisors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rework your business model, perhaps attempt doing 8 hour shifts instead of 12 hour shifts, and please let your management know that the difference between UP 5742 and CSX 5742 is the the difference between looking for the Magic School Bus and Thomas the Tank Engine in a huge yard like Englewood at night.

    I have been working at RailCrew Xpress full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you like to driving for a job

    Cons

    They don't value their driver, when they only pay 7.25hr 24/7 on call and no benefits. They don't stick up for their drivers when they get in a conflict with the railroad. That's why their is a big turn around in drivers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people like humans instead of a number ,and pay a good wage, we are responsible for transporting a human life to there destination. The Company's that deliver packages pay their driver a lot more and give them benefits.

    I have been working at RailCrew Xpress

    Pros

    It's a job, im actually legally employed, im not selling/doin drugs nor robbing people nor homeless in a shelter

    Cons

    All kinds especially lack of proper pay, no time & a half overtime pay, $4.13 is the overtime pay, also if you work over 15 hours in a day and ur still on duty, you'll be working for free. The train crew you transport make MORE MONEY riding in the van than you do driving it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PAY YOUR DRIVERS AT LEAST $15 an hour
