    I worked at BNSF Logistics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a fairly easy job and my coworkers are very friendly and helpful. The benefits are great especially the 401k package (6% match). Bnsf also provides good training for post college grads, especially if you are really in short need of a job.

    Cons

    It can be very stressful. Upper management (above branch level) never acknowledge any successes but are on your case the minute your numbers slip. My biggest complaint though is that there is little or no room for growth above being an account manager. The best AM's do well but everyone is replaceable and very few are acknowledged/promoted into management. It's a good job for when you need one but it is not a long term career opportunity. I would say most people leave within 1 to 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Promote your employees and allow them the opportunities to really build a long term career.

    I worked at BNSF Logistics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    BNSF 's new building is much nicer than the last one.not not many positives to share. But the building is nice.

    Cons

    Run! Candidates beware.

    Management is not good. Lots of micro managers and no training to help you. Very little opportunity for advancement. Pay is low. This place sucks.

    I worked at BNSF Logistics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The outside customers I worked with were great people.

    Cons

    Company is centered around a revolving door. They hire people to make calls and get just enough of a clientele to not survive, and when these people are forced to quit for financial reasons, the head Account Managers gobble up the accounts. I hit the goldmine with a great account and it was eventually stolen from me because they make you sign a confidentiality agreement that states you can be terminated at any time without reason. My manager called my customers and told them that I "left" for personal reasons before even telling me that my contract had been terminated.

    Pros

    The culture is great! Also, if you are good at the job, you can make a lot more money on commission.

    Cons

    Work life and home life are the same thing. You were on call 24/7 but from what i hear through the grape vine this has changed drastically. So i would feel it out for yourself.

    I worked at BNSF Logistics full-time

    Pros

    Good people to work with, nice amenities in the break room. Espresso machine and newer building is very nice. Sometimes you get downtime to just chill.

    Cons

    You can make more money doing the same work for another transportation company in the surrounding area. Don't try and go above and beyond because it won't be rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talent and make accommodations to keep them, stop bringing in temps with no degrees and no experience. HR should be more responsive.
