"Employed with the company since 2006. Very successful company and business levels are very high. Overall, a well run company, however, some departments could use a lot of housecleaning.The company pays well and likewise the benefits are good, but in some departments, the company doesn't seem to value experience and they do not place any value on helping employees to grow/develop and advance."

"Overworked, and no compensation for overtime. If you know the right people, the Good Ol' Boy System is alive and well and you can get some pretty nice jobs, but if you're on the outside, and don't play the game with them. Good Luck to you."

"Worked them for nearly 8 years but now looking for something more."

What do you like about working at BNSF Railway?

"Coworkers, sense of pride when solving a problem and fixing it,"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Speak safety, breathe safety and they'll love you. Dress clean, be polite. Decent retirement but keep an eye out for better."

What don't you like about working at BNSF Railway?

"Dealing with the deeply entrenched Nepotism and Good old boy's club, the hypocrisy and double standard in it's safely program(s), it's constant reduction in benefits while gloating in our faces the massive profits it's made. It's lack of any form of sick leave without resorting to FMLA to prevent from being fired for absenteeism. It's use of Safety as just a Metric, making us all feel like a number."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Work out the sick leave and force your local supervisors to accept doctor's notes, not just when he feels like it. Fix your absenteeism policy and make it more transparent vs. the hidden number. The safety of BNSF has always outwardly been really high and I believe the middle management actually believe in it, the lower management just seem to view it as an obstacle to production and ignored until they want to fire someone, this need to be addressed."
