First thing in the morning we have a safety meeting then the foremen give each person their job for the day. (A job can be different each day) Mainly work on rail cars.
A typical day at work is loading beams, cutting cans open, inspect rail carts, guide loads of beams, load beam, rebar, and pipe onto trailers.
I learned how to properly load flat bed trailers with Kleysen.
Very good management, calm and nice people.
The co-workers are good people, fun and give your day a boost when you're at work.
The hardest part of this job is the weather. It switches quickly, you can be very cold and then hot the next minute.
The most enjoyable part of this job is you can find something to do and the long hours.
The weather makes the job difficult sometimes
