Railroad work
Track Inspector (Former Employee), Crete, ILMarch 28, 2015
Pros: Nice hotels to stay in.
Cons: Pay is way too low for the work you do.
You drive a truck down the tracks while a guy in the back of truck tests track for defects using lasers and cameras. Then after 10 or more hours of that you go to hotel and work on truck for 3 or more hours

Railroad Contractor (Former Employee), Crete, ILOctober 12, 2013
I did enjoy the job a lot, the only downfall was the manager you are stuck working with.
The people who work within the office are a great group of people.
