A typical work day started when you start you day, there was always things to do, people to get to sign things, email people to sign things, report to the boss if something big happened, ask a co-worker if you needed help.
I learned that Bombardier was always a busy company.
My co-workers were always very nice to me, they taught me many things while – more... there. What data bases to use for what, where to put the papers for certain people to sign, what needed to be done for that day and so on.

The most enjoyable part of working for Bombardier is the fact that your day goes by extremely quick. With the large expansion of growth, the only set-back is that the growth is only amongst the operations of locomotive engineers, conductors and CSA's. There is no expandable growth amonst office staff.
