You are not treated the best, just a number for most of the employees. I was lucky to work with just a select few guys as mechanics and we had a lot more freedom

Same role
Heavy equiptment operator (Current Employee) - Guelph, ON
10 hour days checking machine before operation, job briefing. learned about signals and communications on the rail way. management wasn't the greatest they would give training to employees and not pay them for what they are qualified at. a lot of the co workers were great helping learn along the way and teaching open to questions you have. staying away from home can be hard for 8 days and being laid off for so long. working with friendly people always is the best for me by far.
Pros
food bonus, benefits, decent pay when all is included, boot allowance
Cons
laid off for over 4 months, management doesnt want to pay employees what they are qualified for.

Mobile mechanic (Current Employee) - Cochrane, AB
All around fairly good company to work for. With recent changes it is hard to see a good outcome. Good pay, lots of over time. Budget cuts don’t allow enough staff for jobs at hand
