Intermodal Coordinator

Anyone have any insight regarding the metal sourcing and logistics position? I'm considering a move but I don't want to go into anything more stressful than intermodal logistics. I hate the railways currently, specifically UP. BNSF is a close 2nd. Management is toxic and apathetic. I asked for a raise and they said it wasn't in budget.
