    I have been working at Watco Companies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Railroad retirement
    - benefits
    - upper management
    - steady work
    - opportunity

    Cons

    - lack of a safe environment
    - theft
    - neptosiom
    - pay rate
    - no protection when trying to protect your employers reputation.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize neptosiom, it's a perfect set up to allow unwanted work ethic and theft. Unfortunately the people you count on to lead are the same who take advantage of you.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Watco Companies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people, Watco have a lot of good people working for them. I have clearly made a couple good friends there and will stay in touch!

    Cons

    Benefits were too costly
    They didn't care about their team members

    Advice to Management

    the next time you shut down a facility ( or three ) at least have the decency to be there to say good bye to the employees they gave it their all for the company! I cannot believe you just let everybody walk away and nobody was there to send us off, not even a phone call on our last day!
