    Horrible pay,horrible management,you’re lucky if you get a lunch break and 15minutes breaks are unheard of there..Be prepared to never see your family with the 4 on 2 off schedule that’s mandated now and everything is a lie but the fact you’re payday comes bi-weekly..Be prepared to stand on your feet for over 13 hours for four days straight

    Advice to Management

    The worst management known to man kind on any job I’ve worked

    Pros

    Hey, it's super cool, I drive a locomotive! I have an active job that allows me to stay in good physical shape. When I get home at night I feel like I've accomplished something with these two hands.

    Cons

    I'm gonna be blunt, two words, Lead men. Leadmen are not supervised by site manager. They do whatever they want...which is usually nothing. Fortunately we have a good leadman on our shift. We told him it wasn't cool to just sit in the truck and do nothing while we were busting our butts. Ever since then he has spent the entire shift outside his leadman duties helping load on the rack. He also agrees that it is bull crap that leadmen have a lot on their plate, that on the worst of shifts it only takes 4hrs to complete leadmen duties. This right here is the main reason why loaders quit(overworked while a leadman just sits and watches) constantly makes you feel like the company doesn't care about it's foot soldiers
