    I have been working at CSX full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits, always something different to work on.

    Cons

    Takes advantage of you as much as possible. Forced OT even if you can't stay due to prior engagements. Constantly writing you up for little stuff. Attendance program is garbage. If your late to work due to the entrance being blocked you gets punished, but when you have to wait in the yard for 30 minutes after your shift they don't pay you.
