Demanding work environment, which usually has you working on call 24-7
Locomotive Engineer (Former Employee), Roberts BankNovember 3, 2014
Pros: when you retire from the company with a full pension, it is nice to recieve, a monthly pension cheque.
Cons: no family time on a regular basis while working in freight service, no set schedule to make plans for family activities.
The hardest part of the job I was working was no set schedule for a balanced family life, generally on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week. You could manage to have time off, once achieving, making your allotted milage for the working month, which meant you could get anywhere from 2-6 days off per month, but you had to work many shifts to accumulate 3800 – more... mile per month.
Enjoyed working with some fine employees, finished my career, finally on a schedule road switcher job, out at the coal port at Roberts Bank. – less

No work/life balance. Always on call. Poor management
Crew Dispatcher then Management (Former Employee), Calgary, ABOctober 7, 2014
Pros: good wages and benefits
Cons: always on call. no work/life balance
Since the new CEO came in, Management is always quick to point the finger and quick to pass the buck.
You are expected to answer the phone at all hours of the day and night. Saying NO is not an option. They force you to work on your rest days . If you say no, you will be fired.
Do yourself a favour and do not work here. The stress level is over the – more... top. – less

Train conductor (Current Employee), Montréal, QCMay 6, 2014
the day starts with you reading and familiarizing your self with new daily operating bulletins. these are documents that consist of rule and procedure changes that effect your job.

at the beginning of your shift there is a daily job briefing with your crew and manager.
once this is completed you go outside to your assigned locomotive
and begin to work. – more... your building out bound trains using a switch list given to you by your "yard coordinator " you work in a team of 3 ( Forman, break man and locomotive engineer )

your working out side in all weather conditions, your concentration and job focus is paramount because a error can result in a serious accident which can lead to a fatality. your expected to work weekends and holidays.

if your work a spare board, you have 2 hours to report for duty from the time the calling desk calls you.

despite all of this its makes all better when your working with a good bunch of guys.

in the end the job has its good moments but ultimately it puts a very heavy strain on your personal life. – less

Great Full Time Job - Changing Business is a minor downside
Roadmaster Admin Assistant (Current Employee), Scarborough ontarioApril 16, 2014
Pros: great pay, expenses, benefits, pension
Cons: away from home the majority of the time
Great place to work however with all these changes being made it has become hard for everyone to stay positive. The culture is changing and many people have a hard time embracing change which results in a disorganised negative workplace. It is getting better and will continue to get better as these changes start to die down and they become a habit again.
