        This is a very high paying Class 1 Railroad that is also eligible for railroad retirement. It is fast paced and days go by quickly.


        There is not a work life balance. It is 100% about work and your performance while on property. Management is currently working 65-80 hours a week and the attitudes trickle down to all levels of the organization. If you aren't single, and unattached to the location you live, find another class 1 to work for.

      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Have you ever done interview & just felt the team or company wasn’t sitting well with your gut? How does that factor into your decision if an offer is made? Obv a job interview time is limited so you never know but sometimes I just have a vibe it’s not a match and even though I may keep going in rounds, I’m always checking if I finally get the gut feeling this may be right. I had one where round 1-4 the mood was off. I felt I was being nitpicked harshly always, they rejected me in the end

      For those who are/were in management- At how many years of experience did you get your first job as a manager? How did you make the jump into leadership? For people whose first management role started at a new company, how did you convince them since you had no prior experience in management??
