Team effort and big family !
Senior Service Attendant (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 9 November 2015
Working on a passenger train may not be for everyone, but I absolutely loved it, although it was sometimes hard to be away from family/friends up to a week at a time. I've overcome a big fear of mine, and that is to be in charge of someone's safety. I have learnt many responsibilities and duties to ensure my passengers' safety and well-being while being on the train. The hardest part about this job was that it was 17 hours long, and no matter what mood you were in, you had to stay positive and put a smile on your face. I've learnt that not everyone can be pleased, not matter how much effort you put in. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing the country from the west-coast, to the east-coast, and spending layovers with co-workers that were like family.
