Current Employee - Customer Service Representative

I have been working at Amtrak full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Excellent Benefits, Excellent Pay, Excellent Retirement! Friendly Co-Workers, Family like environment.

Cons

Don't plan on having a weekend off. Too many Chiefs, not enough Indians. They're always looking to "optimize". Understaffed, and Overworked at times, and getting positions filled is like pulling... teeth.

Advice to Management

Recognize how hardworking your employee's are. Every employee I know busts their butts most of the time in 100+ degree weather only to be scared of management when they are around for nitpicking the... smallest of things that might be done wrong.

Current Employee - Conductor Trainee

I have been working at Canadian Pacific Railway full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great pay and benefits Most executives and upper management started in ops

Cons

With great benefits come some sacrifices

Advice to Management

Thank you for putting safety at the top of your priority Happy employees equals happy share holders
