I have been working at GATX full-time (More than a year)
Benefits are great compared to other companies I have worked for. Pay really isn’t bad for entry level work. Job bids Allow you transition from one dept. to another, giving you the opportunity to change jobs without having to leave! Big on safety including compensation to buy clothing such as button up shirts, jeans, and steel toed boots, etc. Company does provide essential personal protective equipment for each dept. such as gloves, hood, hard hat, glasses, etc.
Overtime can be mandatory at somewhat short notice. Hard to plan weekends ahead of time. If you’re not favorited or high in the seniority list, it can be hard to progress up the ladder.
Advice to Management
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GATX (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.
It was 6 hours with 6 people. Well planned. I have lot of experience as EA. However, they seemed to be looking on exact skills in the person I was replacing. This person worked there for 30 years..did not seem to have any " current" skills.
They were obsessed on Business analysis skills which in my opinion is just part of EA repertoire.
The feedback they provided was not detailed. That is the least they owe me for taking a day off
