    I have been working at Kansas City Southern full-time


    Good People Part of a Union With Medical And Dental as well as Vision, Pay is Good if you have enough seniority to hold a job or stay on the Extra board


    Irregular work hours no set days off unless you can hold a regular job all the old heads are retired so seniority is slow building
