      Pay (you can make over $1000 in a single day with the right claims and work conditions) Health Insurance Railroad Retirement Work is not super complicated


      Managment is terrible. Corporate culture places profits above all else. Lax safety standards, expediting freight over the safe ways. No set schedule/on call 24/7/365 away from home (through freight service)

        Business Outlook


        Pay and benefits are second to none. If you love to always be traveling, this is the job for you. Advancement opportunity is there.


        Always traveling. Working long shifts and on call 24/7 365. No home life at all. Constantly moving if you want to be promoted. No chance for spouse to have a stable career.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Project Manager

      I interviewed at new company for the same role I currently do, so I have all the skills they need and more. I went through 5 stages of interviews, including pp in person and final 1 was on Friday over week ago. I was expecting to have news by last Friday. No news, so I emailed them last Friday asking for indication when can I expect the results,but we have Tuesday evening today, and no one emailed me back. This is the 1st time I have to wait so long after final interview for news-Should I worry?



      How long to typically hear back from a mid-sized company (200-300 people) after an initial interview? Their internal recruiter told me “a few days” and it’s been a week. Interview went very well (I thought!) Thinking of following up on Thursday if I don’t hear.


      Customer Service Representative

      A sign? Sheer luck, or coincidence? The stars are aligned? Is there a full moon tonight? I kid you not... I was in the middle of writing a follow up email to a recruiter for a job I applied to almost 2 weeks ago. As I was about to hit send, I noticed an email from that very company that arrived like a few minutes earlier with: "Next steps - Interview" *been off 13+ months, only 2nd interview. Wish me luck!!!🤞
