A lot of grey area when you are new.
Freight Train Conductor (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAMay 4, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: management
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

Freight Conductor (Current Employee), Manchester, GAApril 9, 2014
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...

good money, bad culture
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

New hires will have an extremely hard time holding a job. It's an OK gig, but very hard at first. You have to put your time in.

Productive and safety concious workplace.
Freight Conductor (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: safety lunches, bonuses, salary, benefits and culture.
Cons: long days and the danger associated with the job.
A typical day starts off with the gathering of train orders, attending/holding a briefing and out to your train or yard job (bowl, hump or industry) work your shift, print out job ticket and off to the house or hotel if you are on the mainline.

Management can be ok at times, but if you come in and do your job you will no real issues.

Co-workers are – more... friendly and down to earth.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the co-workers. – less

Economy Failure
Freight Conductor (Current Employee), Russell, KYJanuary 23, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: away from home alot, on call
Due to the economy the job has laid off hundreds of employees. There is no end in sight. You typically get called out at any time with a two hour call. Get to work review work order with crew member go over safety hazards, equipment, etc... Hardest part of job is you are always working with someone new so you don't know there work habits, or how they – more... feel about company. – less
