hard to earn a living - work not steady sometimes 2-3 days go by no work .. over hired crew shuttle drivers not enough work for all the drivers to earn a decent living - management want you to be available 7 days - 24 hours - you are on call as a driver and you can be called to come into work and pick up a crew anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour notice..
Pros
work outside driving long distance casual wear friendly train crew
Cons
24-7 work schedule if you want to earn a living too many drivers not enough work -old vans 400, 000 to 500, 000 kms

If you want a job that pays very little, and has unpredictable hours each week, as well as, driving in all types of weather with a crew of passengers that are disrespectful most times, then this job is for you !
Pros
If you enjoy driving, then this job will provide a lot of it
Cons
Low pay, on call, unpredictable hours. No benefits and useless union

pay is alright for the work, very hard on the body. labor intensive in the winter especially difficult, easier during the rest of the year but the pay is the same.

You basically clean go trains all day for 5 hours. The pay isn’t great considering the hours but you get good benefits and the management is great to work with and easy to get along with.
Pros
Benifits, healthy work atmosphere.
Cons
The job can get dirty at times.

My supervisor was a liar. She told me to take a couple of days off to recover from my wrist injury. I gave her a doctor's note on my return. Hoping for modified duties. She then informed me that I was fired. Hallcon dismissed me one my ROE as "quit", I did not
The man who hired me was really nice, informative and professional.

Benefits were awesome, it included dental.
The hours were my fave, done in the afternoon and off on weekends.

The staff I worked with were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

They had lockers, changerooms and a lunch room.

Regular lunch break.

Lots if exercise

I do feel we didn't get paid enough for all the work we were doing in such a short amount of time.
Pros
Done early, no weekends, benefits
Cons
Too much expected for such little pay, don't get injured, they lied about "modified duties"

If you're a young person looking for a career this is not the job for you as you will not make anything more than minimum wage and management will keep it that way by coming up with another clawback or two to reduce the amount of money that you will make ... you go on a rotating board and wait your turn to be called which means that you were on call and can be for quite some time good luck getting sleep as they may call you at 2 o'clock in the morning or 2 o'clock in the afternoon when you're busy with your children or other work , you pretty much have to devote all your time to this job with very few if any benefits and minimum wage rate of pay ...senior staff know the routine and they get a lot of the good trips
Pros
Work the hours you choose but you're on call and may never get a call
Cons
Minimum wage pay and a very poor management group

12 hour scheduled shifts in the yard or on call for road trips which can be long too. When on call you never know when your going to work.
Once off rest you might get a trip right away or you might have to wait 5 or 6 hours. Some very long days with some so busy you hardly have time to go to the bathroom or have lunch. Was enjoyable working with most of the people.
Pros
Most people good to work with
Cons
Too long of days

An employee lost foot from a train crushing it. Think about that. A man lost his foot and lower portion of leg for a minimum wage job. Does that seem worth it to you?

Benefits are minimal, no overtime, hardly any hours, very dirty work place. Supervisors have 0 expierence in the field. Very low pay rate for the amount of work you do there.

The work is very unsanitary. There is risk every night of being stabbed by a used syringe for drugs. The pay is very low and should be higher based on work conditions. It’s a boring, dirty job. I do not recommend. The job made me Nauseated. No overtime given. you have to commute between two locations and it eats up a lot of gas and we are not compensated for gas.
Pros
Nothings really
Cons
Too many to say

Normal environment to work, good salary and nice people to deal with.Just need to change some methods that can help the workers have more safety and more time to do everything they ask to. Hours need to be more specific and more reasonable.

I've been working here for 4 years and I enjoy it. Great hours and im always out at 3 so i have the rest of my day with my kids.

as for the job its cleaning so no surprises and the salary seems to be the same or better than other places i've worked. The manager is nice enough i havent had any problems.

hardest part of the job is being outside because in summer its nice and winter its freezing but I go straight onto a train so its fine.

also sometimes you end up waiting around for work which kinda sucks.
Pros
hours
Cons
being outside, waiting for work

The pay was satisfactory at $15.00 an hour for a crew transport driver position. This position included 12 long hours with no benefits, and dealing with rough & difficult people with no Managers on site to protect your interests or safety. In addition it is considered a contract position and it poses risks of layoffs.
Pros
Pay was satisfactory
Cons
Long hours with rough & difficult crew
