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 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.
