    I have been working at CSX full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Pay is good after union dues,health insurance and tier 2 taxes. retirement is way better than social security if you can last the 30 years thats required for full retirement. good health insurance.

    Cons

    Working a full 7 hours outdoors in the rain,snow,heat,cold,humidity,mud,unavoidable rain puddles. carefully walk a few miles a day over rocks over train tracks and railroad ties.20 minute lunch break. No regular sleep schedule if you work on the road 12 hours on 10 hours off 12 hours on 10 hours off. you give up a lot of family time and you have to work most holidays.

    "Conductor"

    Former Employee - Railroad Conductor in Cleveland, OH

    I worked at CSX full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you make it to retirement, Csx has a good retirement plan.

    Cons

    Built up expectation only for a let down (don’t make as much money as they say you will!) , crew callers are so rude and inconsiderate (clearly from lack of training), crew callers call for job even though you aren’t on that job (felt like I constantly had to play the game), management is trained to fire you, Cleveland is a young terminal so seniority will not grow for a lot of years - so good luck not being laid off! My advice is don’t waste your time and find a company that cares about its employees.

    I have been working at CSX full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Acceptable rate of pay. Adequate benefits package. Pension program available.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment. May be on call 24-7. 2 hours to report to work when called. Hard on one social life, family, friends, etc. Management seems more interested in aggressive discipline than employee development.

    Advice to Management

    Create and promote positive relations with employees. Stop looking for an opening to pull someone out of service.
