    I have been working at Kansas City Southern full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hire in with little experience, learn the railroad in and out, get to know all KCS's customers. Advancement Opportunities for all.

    Cons

    I have not had a con yet. Management Benefits are not as good a Union Employee's. Can be challenging if you do not want learn or push yourself to learn more.
