Managers have no experience, they bully newer employees. They hire you then spend their time trying to fire you. Violate collective agreement with impunity. If you work in yards with beltpacks you will be standing on the front of an engine in freezing cold ,or rain, or heat.
Conductor (Former Employee) – British Columbia – 10 November 2017
I MUST admit I wanted to keep this job because my Dad and brother worked there and it held a lot of memories but they have some weird unwritten rules along with all the written one's you have to know, no fighting, but you can say the worst things you can think of to your work mates and yes expect to get bullied full time, and if they decide to shrink the work force you will be fired for the slightest thing I saw good men get fired for minor infractions and drunks pedifiles and extreme slackers never even get noticed. A great place to work apparently for old NHL hockey players but the hours are very very intense and the older it gets the harder it is, would I go back ...............nope I love to sleep at night :)
