Pros: good pay and benefits
Cons: no set schedule
Don't expect to have a regular work schedule. you might work in the yard one week building trains and switching freight cars. with "regular work schedule", i.e. work five days with two off normally an 8 hour shift never more than 12 though.(federal law and all) and the next week working the road, i.e. taking a train from one rail yard to the next sometimes gone for a day or two.
