    Not a lot of options for advancement unless you are willing to relocate
    Christmas bonus is very small for a company this size
    Seems that certain departments are treated as after-thoughts

    I have been working at GATX full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are great compared to other companies I have worked for. Pay really isn’t bad for entry level work. Job bids Allow you transition from one dept. to another, giving you the opportunity to change jobs without having to leave! Big on safety including compensation to buy clothing such as button up shirts, jeans, and steel toed boots, etc. Company does provide essential personal protective equipment for each dept. such as gloves, hood, hard hat, glasses, etc.

    Cons

    Overtime can be mandatory at somewhat short notice. Hard to plan weekends ahead of time. If you’re not favorited or high in the seniority list, it can be hard to progress up the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    N/A

    Pros

    Somewhat good benefits but thats about it you will get screwed over

    Cons

    Runs 3 shifts so theres a chance for off shift, if your not in with the front office "clique" then dont expect to go anywhere with this company, not fair, pay not what it should be

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at GATX full-time

    Pros

    As a salaried employee, I get 15 days paid time off in addition to 8 recognized holidays and 2 floating holidays each year.

    There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in the community.

    They have an amazing benefits package!

    Great work-life balance so I can enjoy my time outside the office.

    Cons

    Due to a current cyclical downturn, the company needs to be tight on their budget.

    Since the company has been around for 118 years, they tend stick with methods that have been working for them for years--as opposed to adopting new technologies.
