I worked at Kansas City Southern full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great Salary. Great Benefits. Union. Offers great money for only a High School diploma or GED.

Cons

Demanding lifestyle. Little time for family or hobbies. Aggressive management. Dishonest practices. Failure to live up to collective bargaining agreements. Treat employees as disposable. Selectively enforce rules and policies.

Advice to Management

Comply with collective bargaining and live up to agreements. Focus less on the absolute bottom line so that you can foster a work environment that can breed enthusiasm and cooperation instead of contempt and distrust.

    Compensation is favorable and advancement is available to anyone willing to put in the time and effort.

    The small company struggles with process management from operations to corporate head quarters.

    Advice to Management

    Push professionalisim from Transportation General Managers to Assistant Trainmasters. It exists in our corporate office but stops at the door.
