Yard Clerk/ Messenger (Current Employee) – Clifton Forge, VA – October 23, 2015
CSX provides excellent company benefits. Though it is a company that does not provide a lot of family time for it's employees. Work hours are non-conventional. And time off is hard to come by for some employees.
Retirement benefits are excellent, as well as health benefits.

Banquet Chef (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – October 20, 2015
One of the most unique jobs I have ever held. If it was a more stable work schedule I would still be employed. Pay was great and comparable to the amount of work associated with the position. Really great to get to see parts of the food industry that most will never get to see. Management was in the midst of change when I left this position.

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.

great job if your single and have no family. Your on call 24/7 and you better believe they will always call you. You get 8 hours of rest after getting off work and will be right back at work after that. the money is amazing as so is the benefits.
Good Money and benefits
No Social or home life, Constantly at work. Management is always out to get you in trouble to fill they're qoutas
Director (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – October 14, 2015
Leader in the transportation industry. 200 year old industry with some cultural, ambiguity and political challenges. Decent amount of diversity in some areas but opportunities to do more. Company leadership driven to be productive.
I worked as a Software Developer Intern at CSX Transportation(Operations Research).
I used to have scrum meeting at 9:00 am almost everyday with my team and start work after that.I had a really helpful mentors who guided me whenever I had problems with the code or logic building.My manager was encouraging in a sense that he always gave me feedbacks and the ways I could improve in industry.
The most enjoyable part was when I was working in the Yard Simulation Project.I got a chance to visit one of the Yards of CSX in Georgia and see how complex process it was to optimize the train operations.Also I loved developing web applications for Train Design and Optimization.
I learned that perseverance is important and team work means a lot.Also, respect to coworkers counts.
Long hours away from home but nice not having to be told what to do everyday.

Good work with great benefits. Having to be away from home a lot is difficult. Not having a boss constantly over your shoulder is nice though. There is room for advancement but relocation is necessary.
