    Pros

    They will work you I really liked working there was fired over backing incident should have given a second chance

    Cons

    No rest treat drivers bad tail crew very rude to drivers

    Advice to Management

    Even though someone has a backing incident maybe probation would be better than firing someone us seniors really need the work we are always one step from living on the streets

    Pros

    Many hours working next to railroad constantly. That's about it if you need a job apply they will hire you

    Cons

    Slow times. Sharing van with old men that don't want to share. Management is a joke. Work 24/7 that's about it.

    Advice to Management

    Management is a joke.

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

    Pros

    Most of the crews were very nice, 1 person was a troublemaker but HR dept just passed the buck, saying "it's your perception" when they have had dozens of complaints about this guy

    Cons

    Awful dispatch, threating you with being fired if you didn't change a flat tire, which you were not supposed to, you were to call for someone & they would not give you the number, had to wake my mgr to get the number , also threating you if you said you were too tired to drive! No consideration for drivers, the dispatch acted like they were in charge of everything.

    Advice to Management

    clean house of your rude dispatchers & work w/CXS HR to improve communication/actually resolve issues instead of hiding from them & not throw it back at you

    I worked at Renzenberger part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro is you get to spend time around the railroad if you like that sort of thing. Also you don't have to work in a building or office all day.

    Cons

    Applied to Hallcon, then realize I've actually been offered a job by Renzenberger instead.

    Applied for "Yard Driver" job which the ad and application said was available but instead I find out I have no choice in the matter and have to be a road driver.
    You have to be a road driver for years before you can become a yard driver. The ad is an outright lie.

    The online ad said there are health benefits but they were not ever mentioned and I never got any paperwork about them.

    Parts of the safety training video were skipped and not shown.

    12 hour shifts- only guaranteed 9 hours off after working a 12 hour shift. Ridiculous! And they say they don't want fatigued drivers.

    No take home car for over the road drivers. PTI even has take home cars!

    Pay rate is by the mile rather than an hourly wage. If you are sitting and waiting for a crew you are not even getting paid for your time!

    I took my driving test in a car with bad bearings and transmission that wasn't even fit to be on the road. If this is how the first company car I get into is, I wonder how the others are?

    My so-called trainer that I took my road test with was foul-mouthed, rude, and unprofessional.

    A very poorly run and unorganized company in all aspects.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront and transparent about your company with potential hires. Stop misleading people or outright lying in your ads. Maintain your vehicles better. Some shouldn't be on the road.

    I have been working at Renzenberger full-time

    Pros

    Over the road driver you get to take your truck home or van

    Cons

    Lousy pay. Work for them if you really need something to do.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your drivers better than what you do now.

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

    Pros

    It's easy to get a job there as a driver.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are terrible. Employees have to get vehicles serviced on their own time and without pay.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your driver's like human beings.
