U never know where you will be. You might not have a job or you could be making well over six figures. Crew was awesome but management sucked! A good amount of stress but you are well compensated.

Excellent company to work for with a team work environment.
Superintendent (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 19, 2014
Pros: knowing at the end of the day that i had made the correct decisions to meet company expectations
Cons: hours occasionally interfered with personal responsibilities.
A typical day at work would begin at five a.m. and often would end as late as ten p.m. with on call responsibilities. I learned how to work with many different individuals with different backgrounds and personalities: utilize these people in positions that cater to their strengths. The hardest part of the job was to prioritize work and be proactive – more... in a short amount of time that would meet the company expectations and serve the customers in a timely and efficient manner without disruption. The most enjoyable part of working for CSX was knowing I had performed to the best of my abilities and being rewarded each year through the Performance Management Evaluations. – less

Not a Bad job if you're not family oriented. It can take up a bit of your time constantly being on the go and on call for work. But it does pay well and has great benefits...

conductir (Former Employee), parsons yard, columbus, ohioApril 8, 2014
Pros: money, retirement, insurance
Cons: culture, job security, true safety records
Csx is a class 1 railroad. They have a large network of rail running through out most states east of the Mississippi. Well paying jobs, but job security is a risk. The risk of firing due to company culture...a book of rules with more pages than IRS tax codes. CSX and most railroad preach safety, but only care about moving freight and getting the job – more... done. They will push you until you get hurt and then blame you for the injury and threaten you with your job. Unfortunately, with the railroads dumping money in the back pocket of politicians pocket, safety for the railroad employee is the least important, as long as the general public are safe. Long career of doubt and unsure of job security...terrible amount time away from your family. Better life style in the military. Back stabbing is heavy and daily! Your life will be forever changed! I work for competing railroad and belive me, it's all the same. – less
