Dont do it.
Lead Electronics Technician (Former Employee) –  Erie, PA24 April 2017
Total lack of consideration for any of thier employees
They will use you and lose you. Lots of temporary layoffs amd then one day they decide to move the line to Texas or overseas. And your jobless. All in all, they only care about the dollar, they could care aless about the employees.

Management at GE Transportation is nothing but a bunch of uneducated out of there league nobody's. Always looking to find fault with even the best of workers just to condone their pitiful attempt at securing the job they have.
Pros

family fun days, employee fun days, safety incentives, pizza parties...etc
Lead and Loop Department (Former Employee) –  Erie, PA13 April 2017
work is kind of boring and repetitive but pay and benefits were great. I liked the people I worked with. We often had fun times around the holidays and superbowl. We had a union and they did a great job getting us the benefits we needed. It wasn't perfect but much better than most places. I do feel that people had a sense of entitlement and hid behind the union to get away with stuff.
Pros
pizza days and picnics
Cons
health care was really good when I started but dedtuctibles and copays increased

It was a good place to work
Plan Management Specialist (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FL27 February 2017
When I first started moral was good and it was a team environment. The lack of management in my department, and the allowance of harrassment by certian co-workers and looking the other way as others took advantage of time and salary has lowered moral tothe point where none of us want to be there anymore.

Work Like Balance does not exist
MTA (Current Employee) –  United States15 February 2017
Get paid for 40 hours, but average 50-60. Overtime is determined by your manager, so pay, some don't. Fear of the plant closing is constantly hanging over your head. Working with union employees is like working with day car children.

Great learning experience
Environmental, Health and Safety Intern (Former Employee) –  Erie, PA25 January 2017
I had an Environmental, Health, and Safety internship at GE Transportation so it wasn't a full time job. I was hoping to get a full time job out of the internship but later found out there isn't much room to grow and not many opportunities. the internship itself was a great learning experience. Co-workers and work environment were great, always willing to help and teach new things. The internship was mostly a management type of work, over seeing tasks and making sure they were completed. Not much to do with engineering, but some environmental sampling, compliance tasks, and safety related tasks. It is a good gig if you want to focus on the industrial/Business side of Environmental Engineering.

Pros

They work you until you're numb to it
n/a (Current Employee) –  n/a2 December 2016
The typical work day for an employee is 10-11 hours. If you put in your 8 hours and then leave, you're a "lazy" employee. It's a high-stress environment every day. Managers are very good at committing to unreasonable goals and tasks - especially because all they have to do is commit and not actually follow through with them. There is no work-life balance - no matter what they try to tell you when they hire you on. They do invest a lot of time and money to train employees and teach them all they need to know. To me, this doesn't compensate for all of the other negatives of this company.
